  1. Hello, Today during the morning they have lent me a spotting scope of 65mm with an eyepiece at 45º and with a zoom, 15X-45X magbification, and well ... on the one hand I have to say that the eyepiece at 45º I think it does not benefit the search of the plane, it is quite complicated to find him, I think it is easier, much easier with straight eyepieces, such as with the small binocular that I have 8X30 or even with one that left me 12X50 ..., I will say that the use of the zoom goes well to enlarge the image although it is not easy at all. That is why I think that an instrument with a straight eyepiece is better, but I wonder if a spotting scope with a straight eyepiece would be better than a straight binocular with a fixed magnification, of course with a magnification of 20X upwards, since when I could "catch" the plane with powers of 20x or 25X the image was much better in details than an image with 8X or 10X .. Thanks again.
  2. Hello, I ´m looking for a good binocular with CF and high magnification for airplanes observations, but also Moon,some Messier bright and terrestrial aplkcations.. Thanks in advance for your comments and advices. Tico
  3. It seems that APM 10x50 can be a good astrobinocular !! Tico
  4. Then, there is much difference between this two binoculars? Tico.
  5. Mark, You're really right, sometimes, I think about it, effectively if I'm always going to use a tripod because I don't go for more aperture, for example, an 80...or a 100..but maybe these already think too much, I mean, the difference in manageability is much greater than the advantage in resolution or luminosity ? I don't know, I'm not very clear..., on the other hand those 4 degrees in the visual field of the 16x70 would lose them with the larger models.. Tico
  6. Hello, Right now I am looking for information on some binocular of the type 15X70 / 16x70, Helios Apollo, Orion Resolux.TS, Omegon Argus or Lunt ..., I imagine that all of them will be very similar. My intention is to use them as an astronomical instrument for a wide field, to observe large celestial fields, big nebulas, star clusters, Milky Way, ..., with some tripod (because the image trembles even with 8X) or even with some monopod ... I read in some posts that even it´s possible use nebular filters to observe nebulas .. !!! I love this type of object, although I imagine that this can only be possible under very dark skies. The reality is that I usually observe under skies say "suburban" and I would really like to know if the 15X70 /16x70 model would give good results under these skies .. I do not observe with glasses ... in your opinion these binoculars have enough eye relief for a comfortable observation without kidney beam or blackout problems? thanks for reading me Tico
  7. Wow! It looks like a fantastic place to make wide-field observations of the Milky Way and stellar fields, open clusters and dark nebulas ... precisely with an instrument like its 16x70 ... Thanks for sharing tico.
  8. Then, Hurra!! for the APM..lol!
  9. Thanks Ben for that little note, anticipating your review ..., it seems that this binocular can be a good candidate for astronomical observations ... Plyscope, in fact, I had already read this problem of eyepieces somewhere else, its size can be annoying for people with low IPD or a somewhat prominent nose (like mine), how much eye relief has the TS model and the model APM? tico
  10. Hello, Has anyone used any binocular of the APM ED series? How are they, flat field, luminosity, AC, aberration in edges, sharpness and contrast? Thank you Tico
  11. Hello, I think that his instrument under the exceptional skies of La Palma will show him objects as he has never seen them before ... tico
  12. Hello, Anyone have used this scope ? I have the opportunity to buy this newton telescope second hand for a good Price, i´ve the Starsense system.. Thank you very much in advance Tico.
  13. Hello again, Thanks John, with this combination "I'd probably try and stick with the 24mm / 68 degree eyepiece with the 100mm F/4 newtonian though. " how much field can we get? regards, Tico
  14. Hello, What is the best combination of telescope and eyepiece to observe objects such as the North America nebula, Gamma cygni nebula or the Veil nebula, in Cygnus? In this case I mean being able to get a vision of the whole set, not of enlarged parts. best regards. Tico
  15. Hello, Which is the best binocular to observe nebulae like that of North America and that of the Veil in the swan? Thank you Tico
