The 20×65 ED Deluxe is our take on the legendary Takahashi 22×60 Fluorite, which was discontinued about 15 years ago. Back then, it sold for $1100, and today used 22×60’s sell for $2000+! It was known for excellent sharpness across almost the the entire field, with pinpoint stars and virtually no chromatic aberration. The only downside, besides the extremely high price, was a very narrow 45° AFOV (Apparent Field of View). The new Oberwerk 20×65 ED also has excellent sharpness across the field of view, with virtually no chromatic aberration. Unlike the Takahashi, the 20×65 ED has a wide 65° AFOV, and is much more affordable! Of course these are fully broadband multi-coated, waterproof, and nitrogen charged. Has precise individual focus. An adjustable-balance mount allows attachment directly to a tripod head. Includes our exclusive heavy-duty aluminum-frame case.
