The 6” f/8 Binoscope was just the ticket to some really amazing stereo views of many Messier objects, including the beauties in the summer Milky Way.
I had good luck with a few purchases, including a magnificent pair of 20X80 binoculars from Oberwerk. A perfect match for my home built parallelogram mount.
There were dozens of ‘scopes in the giant class, and more than you could count of all types and sizes of telescopes. Activities were plenty and varied for any taste, including canoeing, hiking and swimming for the other than astronomy enthusiast, or those who just wanted something different.
I hope all had a great weekend wherever you were.
