Constellations, star fields, star clusters - observed at low magnification

These mini-binoculars let you observe the night sky as if your eyes were suddenly much more capable. You can observe entire constellations and star fields, but the stars are brighter and clearer and you can make out much more than just with the naked eye - as if you suddenly had a 'super eye', just for the night sky.

The advantages in a nutshell

  • like a pair of glasses that you can observe the stars through
  • extremely 'fast' - 42mm aperture and 2.1X magnification
  • super wide field of view - observe entire constellations
  • clearly more stars seen than with the naked eye - even with light pollution
  • comfortable observing, even with glasses



As though you were seeing the stars somewhat brighter
No telescope or normal binoculars can offer you what this special instrument seems to conjure up before your very eyes. Looking through these binoculars shows you complete constellations with a 26° field of view. It almost seems as if you are standing on a very high mountain in absolute darkness.

2.1X magnification and 42mm lens aperture
With a magnification of 2.1 times, you are seeing objects about twice as large as with the naked eye. The 'fast' lenses used ensure that a large amount of light enters the eyes. And, suddenly, you can observe not just the main stars in a constellation, but many you have probably never even seen before.

The perfect complement to a telescope
How would you like to sit comfortably in a chair and 'stroll' through the Milky Way? The clouds in our galaxy look even more impressive. And, of course, you will also discover star clusters and nebulae.

Also discover the Andromeda Galaxy, the h and Chi Persei open star clusters or the Lagoon Nebula in a whole new way. They all look absolutely fantastic through these star field binoculars.

Observe with or without spectacles
These star filed binoculars have large eyepieces and a comfortable viewing. You can enjoy the entire field of view, without restriction, even if you wear spectacles.

These star field binoculars come with a wrist strap to ensure that they stay securely in your grip at all times. And a soft nylon bag provides the appropriate protection for your binoculars.

Included in delivery

  • lens and eyepiece covers
  • wrist strap

My items purchased from Omegon arrived two days, and this evening I was able to look through my Omegon 2.1x42 binoculars for the first time.

I can't express my pleasure of seeing what I have been missing for over 30 years. This purchase has motivated me to reintroducing myself to enjoying the night sky.

I have spent many hours in the middle of Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans viewing the stars while in the Navy. These new star field observing binoculars enhanced my viewing pleasure this evening to overcome the local light pollution.

Now to move forward with purchasing a new telescope (before I lose my night vision) and start a new hobby... astrophotography.




EXCEPTIONAL

This Binocular fits a need I wanted 50 years ago. You see the night sky with your eyes, normal binoculars, and telescopes. I have used instruments up to 17.5 inches in diameter. I love my 10 and 5 inch catadioptric instruments, as well as my Coulter CT100 (14X100mm).... BUT, this 2.1X42mm is unique....it bridges the gap between your eyes and other instruments...
In looking at the quality of the instrument, yes there is some color fringing, negligible, while viewing a full moon....but otherwise...any defects are only in your eyes.. No lens at minimum magnification produces a totally color free image, but, when looking at the nearly full moon...this product was no less corrected than any other well made lenses.....THIS IS A GREAT INSTRUMENT FOR ALL THOSE WHO LOVE SKY GAZING...
