Q1: Are there instructions for these binoculars?
A: All of the manuals are downloadable from the Zhumell website at http://www.zhumell.com
Q2: Are these binoculars achromatic or apochromatic? I would rather not deal with any chromatic aberration. How hard is it to aim these? Is it possible to mount a simple red dot finder to them or is it not needed?
A: The Zhumell Tachyon 25x100 Astronomical Binoculars are achromatic. It probably would be possible to mount a simple red dot sight on them, but there's probably no need.
Q3: My heavy duty tripod does have the quick release plate, and I do have the plate w/bolt that I used for my video camera. Would I still have to have an L bracket to hook up the Tachyon 25X100 to this tripod?
A: You will not need an L-mount adapter with the Tachyon 25x100 Astronomical Binocular. It has a tripod adapter that will mount directly on the tripod.
Q4: We travel a lot and spend a lot of time in the blue ridge mountains and like to use our binoculars to see into the valleys. We have 28x80 and are interested in the tachyon 25x100. Would this be a good binocular for this application?
A: It would definitely be a great binocular for that use, generally as you get higher than this in magnification the binocular is either a zoom or it is just too large to really carry around with you. These are big, but the aluminum case it comes with is nice for traveling.
Q5: Where are the Tachyon binoculars manufactured? Where are the lenses ground?
A: Both the lens grinding and manufacturing is done in China.
Q6: Which Tripod is the best for the Zhumell Tachyon 25x100 Astronomical Binoculars?
A: We recommend the Zhumell Heavy Duty Tripod for use with the Zhumell Tachyon 25x100 Astronomical Binoculars.
Q7: Are these waterproof?
A: The Zhumell Tachyon 25x100 Astronomical Binocular IS waterproof.
Q8: Do these use a BAK 4 prism?
A: The Zhumell Tachyon 25x100 binocular does indeed use BaK4 glass in its prisms.
Q9: How many elements make up the eye pieces? What percent of the field of view is sharp?
A: The Tachyon's eyepieces contain three elements. Because the binocular uses BaK4 prisms, the entire field of view is sharp.
Q10: How much is the weight, length and width of this binoculars?
A: The weight is 9.75 lbs., the length is 15.4 inches and the width is 10.8 inches.
Q11: I am interested in this Zhumell 25x100, besides looking at stars, can it use for other outdoor activities as viewing birds and sailing regatta.
A: Absolutely, although with that high of a magnification you will definitely want to use it with a tripod.
Q12: I wear glasses, would this item be good for my eyes?
A: Because this is an individual focus once you focus the binoculars they are set for your eyes to view distance, this makes them good with or without glasses.
Q13: I'm thinking of purchasing a set of Tachyon 25x100 binoculars as I over look a harbor I like to look at the ships in the distance. Could you please tell me if these binoculars set up on a tripod would be suitable for that purpose? And would you send me details of the type of tripod?
A: These would definitely be a great choice for that use. They are designed to work with any standard photographic tripod the one we sell the most with these are the Zhumell professional tripods.
Q14: Is there much of a noticable difference in what I will see in the night sky [planets, nebula, moons, ect] in viewing between the Zhumell Tachyon 25x100 and the Zhumell Super Giant 20x80 Astro-binoculars.
A: The difference is that the magnification will bring things 5x closer with the Tachyon.
