Hold out a pencil, about half an arm's length, then grab it with the other hand.  Now close one eye and try to do the same thing.  Have to go a little more slowly?  Miss it entirely?  This happens because you lose a great deal of depth perception when you have only one eye working for you.  And, as people who make regular visits to the optometrist know, both of your eyes are probably not created equally and they work better together than apart.  Using both of your eyes makes focusing easier and brings out better contrast and color.  This is what makes a telescope binoviewer so amazing.  

 

When viewing planets, subtle details become more apparent and take on a dimensionality that must be experienced to be understood.  Adaptable to almost any telescope using the existing focuser, a binocular viewer splits the incoming light through a high quality prism, sending photons to both eyes simultaneously.  With only a small percentage of light lost, this stereo vision increases the brain's ability to process the incoming information in greater detail and with far less eye strain.  Using both eyes for astronomy increases visual acuity, visual detection at threshold levels (including absolute light detection and contrast sensitivity), brightness, perception, shape recognition, and flicker.  The "realism" of using a binoviewer is unsurpassed and will open a new dimension on your observing experience.  Old objects become new again!  In addition to eliminating eye fatigue associated with viewing through one eye for a prolonged period of time, this binoviewer also provides a three-dimensional effect while observing many celestial objects.  We also carry extension tubes which allow the binoviewers to come into focus with longer focal travel reflector telescopes, multipliers which allow for higher magnification views, couplers, and adapters.
