Oreo (binoscope)

Post by Great Red Spot »

Behold Orea the binoscope consisting of 2 Stellarvue F50 finders.

Presents very 3D view of the moon, especially when clouds are passing it. Like a pair of binoculars, but minus the neck strain. Very comfortable.

Adjusting the two scopes to fit my interpupillary distance is tricky. But it could be made easier with a more suitable dovetail plate.

Ok the eps I also use for my binoviewer so they are not specifically for this setup :)
