A 16″ Binocular

Did you read Morris Yoder’s article, “Two Are Better Than One?” Well, take a look at this.


Brandon Martin’s introduction to astronomy first involved using a spotting scope. It didn’t take long to see that the small aperture was best suited for daytime use.


His next jump landed him beside a sixteen-inch Dobsonian telescope. The light-gathering ability jumped from 8 square inches to 200 square inches.


But Brandon was young and energetic. Before long he took another leap. At age 23, he started talking to me about parts for building a whopping 16” binoscope! That is 400 square inches of light!


And then the real surprise—one day Brandon called for more parts—to build a second one!


Initially he had purchased enough of some of the materials for two scopes. He enjoyed building the scope enough he decided to build a second one to sell.


For the second scope, Brandon upgraded some features to take this scope to a still higher level. I am going to let photos and captions tell the rest of the story.


This binoscope is for sale. Serious inquiries are invited to call me for details. Kevin 1-540-947-1636.

A monarch chrysalis is first emerald green. As it matures, it becomes transparent. Once the butterfly emerges, fluid is pumped from the abdomen into the wings. Over the next several hours the wings harden.
