Oberwerk 100mm Binocular Telescopes from OpticsPlanet.com - Amateur astronomers have been asking for this for years, and it's finally here- a special version of the Oberwerk Astronomy Binocular with 1.25" non-rotating helical focusers! Just like the Oberwerk 25/40x100mm Astronomy Binoculars, broadband multi-coatings (non-reflective green/purple) are used throughout, including on the massive porro prisms. One fully multi-coated wide-angle eyepiece is included- 24.43mm (25x). And because the helical focusers are a non-proprietary 1.25" design,your favorite 1.25" eyepieces can be used as well. The eyepieces do not rotate when focusing- a feature found only on high-end helical focusers. The rest of the Oberwerk 100mm Binoculars Telescope, including the semi-apochromatic triplet objectives, is the same proven design as found in the original Oberwerk 25/40x100mm binocular, but the cast aluminum body has a beautiful automotive-quality champagne finish, giving it a more contemporary look.
Complete Oberwerk 100mm Binocular Telescope package price from OpticsPlanet.com includes binocular, removable handle, lightweight nylon form-fitted case, wooden tripod with removable table-top tripod, and a pair of 25x oculars. An optional 7x50mm finder scope is available (call us at OpticsPlanet.com toll-free (800) 504-5897 to place an order with the finder scope). Oberwerk 100mm Binoculars Telescope is pre-tapped for the finderscope's precision-ground dovetail base (no adjustment required - just lock it in and it's aligned). Because accurate collimation is critical at higher magnifications, every Oberwerk Binocular is tested and collimated prior to shipping- so even at 25x, you'll enjoy perfectly merged images.
