The BT-100XL-ED is the pinnacle of Oberwerk optical technology, achieving superior image quality with a 100mm binocular telescope that weighs a mere 12.5 lbs! With 100mm FK-61 ED objectives, 24mm of clear prism aperture, and a lightweight magnesium alloy body, this binocular telescope sets a new standard for image quality AND portability. A binocular of this quality deserves great eyepieces, so we include our finest 70° AFOV 14mm (40x) eyepieces. The ED objectives greatly minimize chromatic aberration up to 80x magnification (7mm eyepieces). With the widest IPD range of any binocular on the market (50-80mm), even small children can view through both eyepieces.
Other features include a Picatinny rail handle (for mounting a wide variety of finders or laser pointers) and extendable glare shields. Not only is the BT-100XL-ED the highest-quality binocular telescope on the market, it’s also quite attractive! Available in your choice of a speckle-finish “Big Eyes” Gray or a lustrous “Luna Pearl” White, both featuring red-anodized trim. Our exclusive heavy-duty aluminum-frame case is included. Recommended mounts include the Oberwerk 5000 tripod/head, or the Oberwerk TR3 hardwood tripod with carbon-fiber elevator with either the Oberwerk 5000 head or the Manfrotto Nitrotech head. Every Oberwerk binocular is tuned to perfection prior to shipping- so even at extreme magnifications, you’ll enjoy perfectly merged images.
3-year Limited Warranty.

    Oberwerk BT100XL Review

    These beautiful big binoculars are a game changer in using two eyes for astronomy. The ability to use wide field standard 1.25 inch eyepieces with these large bright objectives makes them incredibly versatile. From sweeping the nebulous wonders of the summer Milky Way at 23x up to amazing views of the Ring Nebula at 86x, these binoculars literally shine.

    They are amazingly light for their size which allows me to move them around my backyard with ease to find the perfect viewing position. I have them mounted on the Oberwerk wooden tripod (also beautiful) using the Manfrotto Nitrotech head that I cannot praise enough. During the day I can easily track airplanes, so smooth is this combination, and it provides a rock solid platform at night.

    I have also been able to simultaneously mount both a standard reflex finder and a green laser thanks to the inclusion of a standard Picatinny rail.

    These are great binoculars from a great company.

    Very pleased with my BT 100XL-ED. It’s a beautiful instrument. Takes magnification very well for detailed lunar views that are pretty much color free. Really shines for open clusters and nebula. Very sharp with excellent contrast that makes objects “pop”. It’s a joy to use. I have several excellent large binoculars in my arsonal, but this is my favorite.

    So from low power milky way scanning on light and dark nebula to more detailed medium and higher power views on star clusters, this binocular has been very pleasing.

    Have to mention Kevin’s customer service also. If you have any issues, Kevin will handle it professionally and promptly.

    These are exactly what I was looking for. I can see details through these comparable to a 5-6″ telescope. And…I can completely unpack and set them up on a tripod, observe, and repack them — all in five minutes. I can take them anywhere with no fuss. The are the ultimate in lazy-man tech. Last night, I easily saw four moons of Jupiter and banding on the surface. The view is comfortable and as color-free as my best optics. I am a regular Swaro purchaser, and own stabilized 15x Canon and 20x Zeiss binoculars, and these are the best views that binoculars on planet Earth have to offer. A robust tripod and strong ballhead or other mount is a must. A $50 picatinny-mounted green laser is a nice addition.

    I can’t tell you how much I am pleased with my BT-100XL-ED Binocular Telescope with the TR-3 Walnut Tripod with the carbon fiber elevator and of course the Manfrotto N8 Head . Everything here and with all the eyepiece pairs are made of extraordinary quality. Not to mention the great Oberwerk customer service I received and delivery of my order was superb. The clarity of the optic lenses and the eyepieces is literally out of this world. The expense of everything is no match for the enjoyment I get from using it. And what’s even greater is they stand behind their product with their warranty. Thank you so much to the Oberwerk family for your hospitality for a product I will enjoy to use in the years to come and very proud to own. I applaud you!

    I’m enjoying the binoculars. We live on an island with a water view and they’re great for watching the marine traffic, crabbers and wildlife from the deck. I also got a chance to see the moon on a really clear night and it was awesome. I’m still looking forward to a really dark sky and I’m sure it will be equally good, if I can stay up that late.
    Thanks for the great product!
