telephone binocular support

Oh oh. Kiron's first impression of the "exchange" binoculars recently received from Nikon is not positive. He wondered if I could take a look.

I explained that I was up to the eyeballs in a home search so couldn't really come out and play. I so want to partake of these dark skies but know I wouldn't be able to enjoy them.

Over the phone, I suggested he visit John, so to conduct a side-by-side comparison of his binos to John's Celestrons.

I also suggested he carefully inspect the objectives for marks, the oculars for eyelash oil, double-check the documentation, review the focusing and ocular controls, set them outside to cool to ambient temperature, avoid dew, and turn them upside-down!
