Hotaru 71FL Fluorite Bino & Broan Hawk Owl

This looks much more comfortable to me in size and weight while maintaining top class optical quality with fluorite element.

Since drawtube holders are removed from the system, it becomes much lighter. This is just total 10 lbs including EQ platform, which makes easy setup with StarLapse and counterweight battery.  Still I have to add a bit more metal as extra weight. But at least now I can completely eliminates conventional counterweight. It was not possible with 89ED Bino.  Now very compact while no compromise in optical quality.

Followings were taken with same optics – Hotaru. I wish to look at them some day.
