Our local astronomy club, the MVAS (Miami Valley Astronomical Society) is subject of article in the Dayton City Paper. Oberwerk employee Linda Weiss also happens to be the president of the MVAS- so Oberwerk gets a mention in the article as well.
Our Deluxe Series and Ultra Series binoculars (except for the 10×50 Ultra) now come with the new Oberwerk Heavy-Duty Aluminum-Frame Case. On first glance, these new cases look similar to last year’s cases, but they are substantially stronger and simply much better quality. The only downside is they are almost twice as heavy as the old cases- but we’re sure you’ll agree it’s worth the extra weight to have a much better case protecting your binocular investment.
Oberwerk will be exhibiting at the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) in Suffern, NY on Apr. 8 & 9, 2017. NEAF is the largest astronomy convention in the world. We’ll have all Oberwerk products on display, as well as our new line of Oberwerk-USA wood tripods. Our new tripods are made in Dayton, OH and are crafted from beautiful American hardwoods (poplar, maple, and walnut).
Every year about this time, we’re asked what we’re doing for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. For 17 years, the answer is always the same- our products never go “on sale”, with the exception of discontinued items. Whenever you’re ready to order, any time of year, you’ll get our best price. We’re pretty-well stocked on most of our products, and we do have two more incoming shipments in the next 3 weeks- but we will run out of some items before Christmas. We therefore recommend that you order sooner rather than later. We just received a shipment containing our popular 25/40×100 “Contemporary” Long-Range Observation binoculars, but all were pre-sold to waiting customers- so they are still “out-of-stock”. Another shipment containing those arrives in mid-December, in time for Christmas delivery to the contiguous USA. The 25/40×100 “Classic” version is in stock. So order early and often!
Crystal Cruise’s Serenity just completed a 30-day cruise of the Northwest Passage. The Serenity is equipped with twelve of our 25/40×100 Long-Range Observation Binoculars. Four are placed on the Palm Court, some are moved around on the decks, and the rest are installed in penthouse suites. In the video below, the Cruise Director, standing next to one of our binoculars, talks about this first-ever voyage by a cruise ship. Crystal Cruise Lines is now taking reservations for the 2017 Northwest Passage Cruise (Aug. 15th – Sept. 16th).
