  1. The Helios Apollo 15x70s are abit to much. Looking at Helios Quantum-4 15x70 IF/CF atm on a monopod with trigger grip then i can use it with my 1 good hand.
  2. Currently trying to decide between celestron or helios 15x70
  3. Budget for the binos is about £200. What kind of views do you get through your 15x70s?
  4. Hi, To cut a long story short i became disabled just over a year ago which has reduced my hand functionality. This means i cant always set my telescope up quickly enough to observe. So for Christmas i've received some money towards some astro binos and a tripod if required. Can anyone point me in the right direction or recommend a pair of binoculars for Astro observing (the more i can view the better!!) without many small fiddly bits? Thanks in advance
  5. Hi All, I was wondering were you all buy the flight cases from that hold your tube in? Can you get them custom built and if so where and roughly how much? Thanks in advance
