Binoculizer kit for BORG objectives

MODEL # BINOKIT-BORG-*
Appearances
Features A kit to complete binocular telescopes just by adding two BORG objective lens units (for 80mm dia. tubes.) Sample photos are here.
To maximize the handiness for every user, thorough weight savings were pursued. As a result, even with the heaviest 107FL objective lenses x 2, the total weight is only 9.4kg - easy to be carried in a whole unit.
* BORG objective lenses are not included
* Some BORG objective lenses require extension tubes. See Necessity of Extension Tubes.
