    I saw an ad for 2.1x40mm binocs that are used to augment direct viewing of wide field portions of the sky.  Have any members tried these out?  If so, let me know what you thought.

    Here is a link:

    These look really interesting Frank.  I hope someone has some feedback on them.

    They look like opera glasses.  I wonder if you could just strap them to your head like a headlamp!

    Frank,

    I saw them in one of my astronomy magazines this past issue (can’t remember if it was Astronomy or Sky and Telescope), but it definitely caught my attention as well. I might just have to allow myself an impulse buy…or wait and look through Doc’s first and then determine if I want to by my own or not. 😆

    I have the Omegon version of them. They’re a hoot!!! Paid $139 for them at NEAF this year.
