I can't find the tread, however a few months back you mentioned bringing in some binoculars. Has there been any movement on that project?

They are not here yet. They are a new product which is being made for me as we speak. Delivery is slated some time later in July. When we get them in, I will post info on this group, the AP Yahoo group and our web site.

Please don't call or e-mail the office on this since no sales info has been written up for our staff yet. There will be NO list for this product either.

I may be wrong, but from what I could tell at NEAF the AP
binos are identical to the ones produce by this company
http://www.united-optics.com/products/ast-series/astr-s-8/astr-s-8.htm
and currently sold by APM. I bought a pair from APM
and they are indeed superb -- quite possibly the best
astro bino I have ever tested in this size. They are
sort of a rip-off of Fujinon FMT-SX series but with better
coatings, more comfortable eyepiece design, and about
half the price. Will be interesting to see if the AP
version has any extra features.
