Oh my gosh. We finally had an evening of fairly good seeing and the view of the moon was stunning, absolutely stunning. Jupiter was also unbelievable. Binoviewers remove all of the eye strain and you can just relax and soak up all the detail. Binocular vision also let's you see more detail than monocular vision. The moon was just a wonderful expanse of geographic landforms. It was a thrill to watch the sun rise over the flat expanse of the floor of Plato! Jupiter showed fine structure that I've only been able to see with images taken with my SC8 at f/30. The moons were also clearly little globes. An added benefit of the binoviewers is that they knock the brightness down a bit making the moon easier on the eyes and improving the contrast on Jupiter. I can't wait to see Saturn through these!
