  1. Hello All, I am new to this forum and find this forum extremely useful. I have gone through almost all the threads requesting advice on the binoculars for stargazing and hopefully I will not frustrate someone for this additional thread. I live near San Francisco, CA, USA and in my early 30s. I am planning a trip to Bryce Canyon in 2 months. That place is supposed have very less light pollution and is recommended for Astronomy/Stargazing. I have bought the Sky Safari 5 android app to get me started into astronomy and hopefully I will continue this as a hobby for a long time to come. I have decided to buy 10x50 bins and have found few of these below that are in my sub $99.99 range. I am looking for the best value for the $$ in this range. I will be carrying them in flight and will not be able to baby sit them. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/421389-REG/Bushnell_120150_10x50_Legacy_WP_Binocular.html - $84.99 - BaK-4 - Fully Multi Coated - Waterproof - Fogproof https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/917674-REG/celestron_71424_10x50_cavalry_binocular.html - $89.95 - BaK-4 - Fully Multi Coated - Waterproof - Fogproof - Nitrogen Filled https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1086598-REG/celestron_71362_10x50_landscout_binocular.html - $74.95 - BAK4 - Fully Multi Coated - Waterproof - Fogproof - Nitrogen Filled http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/binoculars/trooper-10-x-50-dps.html - $69.99 -($20 coupon) - BK-7 http://www.telescope.com/Binoculars/Astronomy-Binoculars/Orion-Scenix-10x50-Wide-Angle-Binoculars/pc/-1/c/5/sc/72/p/9333.uts - $102.99 - BAK-4 - Multi Coated (Considering because I read some reviews about quality optics and wider field of view) Please let me know your recommendations, if you have any. Thanks a lot

  3. Here's my best capture so far of Jupiter reaching the limits of my equipment. Taken at around 0:30 on 11th Feb 2016, 4 subs of Jupiter taken at ISO400 1/200sec f/12.7 & 4 subs of the moons taken at ISO800 1/2sec f/12.7. Each set of sub were processed through PIPP, then AS2! and then selective sharpening in PS before being composited into one single image to show planet & moons. My meager equipment being an Olympus E-510 4/3 dSLR attached to a 40 year old M42 mount 400mm f/6.3 preset lens via an adaptor and a x2 teleconveter. This gave me a equivalent focal length of 1600mm at full frame but my f/ratio reduced to f/12.7 (roughly). Having said that, I am overjoyed with the result & getting some visible banding on Jupiter. Being able to capture any detail at all from Jupiter with my current setup has been a goal of mine for ages, now ticked off. Two images here, both the same just one is labelled for ease.

  4. I am very new to the world of binoculars and im gonna get started with Olympus 10x50 binoculars. My question is that will the Olympus binoculars handle weather in Switzerland (humidity above 80%), (high altitude), (cold temperatures)? It would be really helpfull if i get the answer to that question.
  5. Hello, I'm getting started in star gazing and sky watching and I want to buy an entry level pair of binoculars. Based on my budget I kind narrow it down to 3 models: Olympus 10x50 DPS I Opticron Adventurer 10x50 Strathspey Marine 10x50 They all cost more or less the same, and the specs look similar. Can you help me in choosing what may be the best one? Thank you.
  6. Here's a question from a happy astro-amateur from Denmark. I currently own a Sky-Watcher Explorer 130/900 and I think about making a setup with that and my Olympus OMD E-M10 MKII for some astrophotography. The camera has a micro 4/3 lens mount. I have been using my scope for a couple of years though I'm very experienced but I am a complete novice when it comes to AP. I've read good reviews of the Baader Hyperion eyepieces and think that a 21mm would be nice and it has M43 and T2 photo threads. So my questions are these: 1. How do I fit the camera on the eyepiece (adapter or not)? 2. Is the Baader Hyperion a good choice? 3. What will fitting the eyepiece to the camera do to the focal length of the eyepiece (should I go with another focal length)? I know this is a lot and quite equipment specific, but hopefully someone has an opinion. :-) Thank you so much. Mikkel

  8. Hi, I bought this T-Ring from e-bay for $18, and it had good reviews, people saying they just used it without an extension etc. But I'm having trouble working it out. It fits great to the camera, but when I try to put it on the back of the scope its nowhere near fitting. Obviously, I am new to this. The diameter of the hole scope side is 1 and 5/8"s or around 43 mm. What am I missing? Here's a pic of the t-ring and the description on the packet. Many thanks!
