1: Binoculars

I take no responsibility or liability for what are written here, you use the information on your own risk!

When I was out on a cruise on Baltic Sea I got a message that a package was waiting for me. Later when I got home, I immediately went to the post office and picked up the package. See what happy a man could be when receiving new toys :-)

Package with binocular

My earlier binoculars was a 8x21, very easy to bring with you on travels and pretty good optics too. But as you see of the size of the box above this must be something bigger.

Binocular 25x100

This is a Helios 25x100 binoculars, it's like two 100mm refractors! It's used but hardly to see any traces of that.

Compare binocular 25x100 with 8x21

Compare the sizes of the two binoculars, 25x100 vs 8x21. About 8 times more expensive and 20 times more heavier!

I have never been a fan of visual observation, but now I'm curious to give it a chance.
