FOR SALE – Denkmeier Binoviewer system

Another item from my personal collection that I simply don’t use.

System comprises:

1. Denkmeier II Binoviewer - with both 2 inch and 1.25 inch nosepieces

2. Denkmeier 21mm eyepieces X 2 pcs – matched pair, this is the eyepieces that Denkmeier recommend for use with this system, however it will work most capably with premium quality eyepieces

3. Denkmeier S1 Power Switch - provides tremendous versatility allowing the binoviewer to move through up to 6 different magnifications with a low 1.26X power factor to a high power of 3.2X with 4 magnifications in-between. This is because it includes two Power x Switches: one on each side of the diagonal housing. Slide out the binoviewer and slide in a single eyepiece and move through up to 7 magnifications ranging from .76 reduction to 2.3X multiplication. This diagonal can also be used for F/10 SCTs allowing focal reduction and barlowing in binoviewers and single eyepieces. To give you extra data here is a link to this unit (but with a diagonal fitted) - https://optcorp.com/products/denkmei...-diagonal-scts

4. Denkmeier Filter Switch – this is a filter slider than allows two filters to be fitted, both in a 2 inch or a 1.25 inch at your option as it fits both. You select either one of the filters, the other, or none, it is selectable via a slider on the filter holder. Again to give you some extra data on this unit this link has the unit fitted again to a diagonal - https://www.astroshop.eu/denkmeier-f...ectric/p,15528

This system contains the Binoviewer, Power Switch & Filter Switch – thereby it is recommended for you to have a focuser that is capable of handling such a premier system. Those that will be interested in this unit will likely have such focusers anyway as this Binoviewer is usually selected by customers that have a premier triplet APO so the focusers is already a premium quality and capability.

Following is link to Denkmeier manuals – if you are interested the unit to look at is the “Binotron 27” manual and the “Filter Switch” manual - https://www.denkmeier.com/manuals

This may all look a little complex but for any astronomy enthusiast with reasonable experience past beginner level this gear is very easy to use, once you have played around with it for 10 minutes you will know how to use it.

This unit is a sensational quality and suits the very best telescope optics available globally, Denkmeier make the world’s most revered Binoviewer systems.

Selling as a system, with thanks. Condition is excellent.

The unit is usable on both refractors & SCT’s.

Price $ 1,300 – merely clearing it at a very attractive price, you would usually expect this unit to go for this price in EURO

Pickup from Bentleigh, Melbourne or shipment nationally at cost.
Thanks for looking.
