Burgess Binoviewers

Can't believe there isn't a buzz over here about the new Burgess Binoviewer. Here's what Bill told me about them today:

24mm Bak4 fully broadband coated prisms
27mm aperture at the nose
3 3/4" light path length (didn't ask exactly how that was measured)
Barlow interface adaptor (not sure what the mag is)
1 set of 80 deg AFOV ep's included
Dual microfocuser ep holders (not sure about details)
$200

They come as a full up round from the supplier. Bill collimates them and sends them on their way. He's thinking maybe by Xmas, but he didn't specify which year wink The 1026 folks got the same package for $99.

Stats impressed me enough that I bought a pair. I can't believe I signed on to another Wild Bill product, but the guy is like a whirling derbish. I couldn't help myself! $200 is less than a single Nagler, so even if it's just average I will be happy. Heck, I'll just use it in my ST80 finder.

Clear skies,

Hey Tom,

I'm hoping no one finds out till I actually have one in my hand..(Grin)
