Kendall, I tried to contact you by private email but apparently you won't accept these. I love binos and am interested; they look like the next in the series after my 30mm, 40, 50 and 80mm pairs. I have to leave early tomorrow and won't be back until at least 10pm and then leave by 7.30 the next day. So it will be Thursday evening before I can follow up.
Please try not to sell them until I can mug the treasurer :whistle:.

I suggested to the guy that runs Manly life saving club a pair or two of these pier mounted at the club on the observation deck might be a very good idea. How close a target can they focus on 30 - 60 metres?

Yes mate, they would work a reat. 60m would be fine. Could save the boys alot of agro. If they were really keen, i could go and set them up for them to look thru, i live pretty close, Kendall

Dear Astrtraveller, i am yet to hear more from you and i have some offers on the Bins, let me know if you still want them, Kendall 0418 448 259

Sorry. I've been putting off saying no because I'd love to say yes. However I've had to admit that I can't justify the money at the moment. I have 15x80s that are underused, a 15cm refractor that can cover 2 degrees and we are about to buy a 25cm scope. I only came to the decision last night while looking through the 15cm and thinking 'I need a bigger scope'.
I hope the new owner enjoys their new toys.
Are these the same binos as the ones on the top left here (http://www.andrewscom.com.au/site-section-11.htm)? (click on the Andrews link)

According to Luke at Andrew's - yes. I imagine this is correct as the Oberwerk binos are made in China and it is well known that Andrews source a lot of their products direct from Chinese manufacturers.

Cheers Mate, no worries, Kendall

Yes and no, i believe they are produces in the same factory, however these come in fine aluminium flight case, while the Andrews are in a quite poor trolley bag, Regards, Kendall

Dear Astraltraveller, sorry you missed out on the BT100, seems i will have more stock in about 6 weeks. I will list them when they arrive, let me know if you are still interested, Kendall 0418 449 259
What is the minimum focal length eye-piece (in mm) that you 've successfully observed on the BT100? Which brand/model eye-pieces do you recommend? How about zoom eye-pieces?
10-04-2008, 09:20 PM
I have viewed very well through some 7mm radians, Saturn was superb.
Never used zoom pieces, you would need to trial them, the focal lengths may vary from eps toeps.
I find 68 degree eps are good. I am using Orion Stratus in 24 and 17mm with good results.
Panoptics 24mm work very well, also have tried 13mm Naglers, Beautiful?
