Hello and Welcome!

There is plenty to see in the Bay Area (as SF region is known to locals) even in January. As a preliminary question, can you advise what type of equipment will you be bringing?

Ben,

Can you post a photo or two of your mount for those binoculars? It looks very interesting.

Hello Frederico,

You're correct about the head - it's a G2180 (I've got one myself).
The legs are a different story. As far as I know, Gitzo only produced twist lock carbon fiber legs in the time...

Lee,

No, very much to the contrary!!! I agree almost entirely with you. I believe that there are "alpha" objects and experiences and that they may well be worth the price for those who can genuinely...

I believe Joachim is right. The 20468 mates astro eyepieces to Optolyth scope. The 20469 and 20470 mate Optolyth zoom and wide angle eyepieces to regular telescopes. OP needs the the 2046 8 as...

Joachim,

I completely agree about the wide field 24mm eyepieces - would be very good if he owned one. For sure the 3mm is unusable and 75x (6mm) in the Optolyth is going to look a lot dimmer than ...

Hello,

Joachim knows this world! My only question would be the focal lengths of your eyepieces. Since the dob has about 2.7 times the focal length of the Optolyth and 120mm more aperture - there's a...

Hello Bob and also Henry,

I wouldn't trade in the Leica if it were my glass 😁. But I wanted the OP to realize it's a design decision, not a flaw, that he's noticed. In this case, you get a wider fov...

I often use an older, high quality ballhead (Arca Swiss B1) with my Kowa 883. For me, it's a delight. Once properly balanced, it's easy to point the scope in any direction while simultaneously...

Just a slightly different approach you might consider. I don't particularly enjoy scanning with 10x binoculars. Like you (I think) the 6,7x view is more relaxed, and feels natural and...
