Oberweck Giant Binoculars
We don't carry solar filters for binoculars, so can't help you on observing the sun.
The Oberwerks are good choices, especially the models which use standard 1.25" telescope eyepieces. You should also consider the Vixen BT80A Astronomical Binocular BR-GT-1431FM for its excellent overall quality (made in Japan, not China, like the Oberwerks). it also uses standard 1.25" telescope eyepieces.

I am a novice and would like to get a a piece that will allow me to examine the sun, moon and the stars. From your professional perspective, would I be wise to get the Oberwerk or something else. Thanks
Which did you go with ?? I got the 25/40x100 Oberwerks and would like to ask you a couple questions if you got them ?
