Re: How do these work?

Thank you for that very comprehensive information. They aren't for me, they would have been for my son who is researching a suitable pair of binoculars. He didn't really want this particular type but he and I were not sure how they worked. He does have a problem with his left eye with, frankly, does...

Re: Jessops spotting scope and binoculars

Why not take a leaf out of internet cafe books and have internet shops.
Walk in search as in Argos, choose item, pay for it and have it delivered.
What do you think?

Observatories

My son is a budding astronomer and has an AstroMaster 76EQ Telescope and he wants to know how cheaply he can house it outside.
Any suggestions greatfully received.
