newtonian reflector binoculars??

Recommended Posts

“An innovative Newtonian-style reflecting lens…”

What a wealth of brain cells with which to cheat those with not so many!

My boss bought a pair of these recently:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/60x60-Binoculars-Night-Vision-Telescope/dp/B073XD2KM7/ref=pd_rhf_se_p_img_6?_encoding=UTF8&refRID=A4RCBZXQ7EYAD7XKXBPC&th=1

They claim to be ‘night vision’ but just gave a yellow tint to everything!

Obviously, those of us who have some experience with telescopes and binoculars would know to avoid them but it makes me annoyed that they are allowed to advertise them as such.

But can you see anything at night (moon, a street light, etc)?  If so, "night vision". 😉

You can keep all these products, just leave me with bourbon. Binocular vision guaranteed, funny how marketing people don’t put that on the bottle.

In that case you might need the tippler cane to steady yourself. 😁
