The Stereo Binocular Viewer allows you to adapt two eyepieces to your telescope and view with both eyes simultaneously. In addition to eliminating eye fatigue associated with viewing through one eye for a prolonged period of time, this bino viewer also provides a three dimensional effect while observing many celestial objects. The Stereo Binocular Viewer will also improve contrast on deep sky objects as well as solar system objects. The Stereo Binocular Viewer isdesigned to work with Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes (SCT) and many refracting telescopes
The Stereo Binocular Viewer requires you use two eyepieces of equal focal lengths and optical design.
High quality FMC BAK-4 prisms to reduce light loss Quality control inspected forcollimation and performance.

Once you understand that this piece of equipment requires the purchase of two telescope eyepieces of equal power then the piece of starts to make sense. Once you understand how it works it is a pretty good product. It does have a learning curve. It also comes with a very nice storage case, but the case doesn't have room when the eyepieces are loaded.
This is how the heavens are supposed to be viewed, with two eyes! The comfort of observing with two eyes vs one cannot be overstated. You look longer and can more easily notice details you might otherwise miss. I took these to a recent star party where we share our equipment and expertise with the public. My astronomy club has many impressively large telescopes, but I have to say that all the kids, parents, and grandparents that looked through these binoviewers came away with huge smiles, wonder on their faces, and gasps of amazement. The 3D effect on Saturn startled them in some cases to disbelieve. One 10 year old boy looked through the scope and then came around to the front because he thought I was holding a photograph in front of the lens to trick him. Crazy but true. I want also to share the one limitation of these and all binoviewers I think. They perform best on brighter objects. If you are searching for a faint fuzzy you will do better with out binoviewers. I use these with a Celestron SE8 telescope, a pair of 25mm, and 15mm Plossl eyepieces. Really, the bang for the buck is a great value. Opens up a new amazing way of viewing the heavens. Don't miss it.
