New Binoscope Platform by AOK Swiss

AOK Swiss is continuously doing great machining works.  Here is their newly designed binoscope platform, which handles up to 4″ BORG and 3″ other refractors.

As expected, the platform allows for easy scope collimation alignment and smooth inter-pupillary distance without affecting any focus and collimation shifts.   Platform can be set onto conventional camera tripod head or Vixen-compatible alt-az mounts with a mounting side-bar. This is still prototype. After furbishing up, the unit will be commercially available early of next year. I plan to build up with new BORG 89ED.
