Hello from northern New Jersey

I am new to this forum but not new to the hobby. I have had various telescopes over the years and my latest fancy is a 100mm binocular telescope from Oberwerk. Just picked it up a few weeks ago. The low power wide views are a nice change for me. I am re-seeing objects in a new context.

Well.....I’m off to read the binocular forum.

Regards
Sonny

Mount: Manfrotto Nitrotech 608 on an Oberwerk TR3
