Another APM140-BINO near completion / 完成間近

Another APM140-BINO on the Center Mount is near completion.

大変お待たせしましたが、3台目のAPM140-BINOが完成間近になりました。
完成まであと数日お待ちくださいませ。(EMS等はすでに完成しています。ハンドル&ウェイトを整えたら完成です。)

APO110ED-BINO by Mr.Yuri Petrunin, USA

 

 

(This is the innovative mount he chose this time.)

Impression:
It is like eating A5 Wagyu beef: the taste is so delicious, that you do not want to swallow.
So, in short about first experience with binoscope made of two APO110ED F6.5 + EMS system:(EMS-ULS with IPD helicoid)
first – it is quite “delicious” and dangerous: once you see sky with both eye you would not want to go back to cyclopic observing. The danger comes from double cost + for set up.
second – adjusting binoscope (EMS system) to your IPD is like to start riding the bicycle, once you learn – it goes easy after.
third – keep in mind the binoscope is like your comfortable shoes – they fit mostly for you, it could be a bit unfriendly to other people. Usual telescope may serve better for public observing.
I did try a bit of “deep sky”¹ and the moon in early morning. Power: from 100X to 32X.
¹ there is no real deep sky at my backyard, have to get a house with better views.

Yuri ! Congratulations on the completion of the fabulous Binoscope!
I was much impressed by your exquisite expression in your impression observing through the binoscope, too.

「和牛」の例え、お見事です。^^

Year end Arm- Party at Dan-Dan-Stadium in Yonago-City /アームレスリング忘年会(於;だんだんスタジアム米子)

Arm-wrestling year-end party took place at Dan-Dan-Stadium in Yonago city last night.
昨晩、米子市の”だんだんスタジアム”でアーム忘年会が開催されました。
I would like firstly extend my sincerest appreciation to the staffs of the event and Mr.Nishikawa,my teacher who kindly drove us to the site and back without drinking himself.
まず、お世話くださったスタッフの皆さんと、一人飲まずに往復の運転をしてくれた師匠(Nishikawaさん)にお礼を言わないといけません。
This time, I only got one win. The strong layman left some damage on my right arm, and I could not show my ability
at the following match.
自分の試合の結果は、初戦のみの1勝のみでした。 初戦で当たった素人さんがとても強くて、右腕のダメージが回復しないまま2回戦に入り、納得行くパフォーマンスが発揮出せませんでした。

The second opponent was Mr.Kondo who was once a light-weight champ. of Tottori Pref., and I lost.
But I am happy that he admired me that I showed some progress than one-year ago.

2回戦の相手は、軽量級の大御所(数年前の2年連続県チャンピオン)のKondoさんで、予想通り負けましたが、試合後に「去年より強くなっている。」と褒めていただいたのは大きな励みになりました。^^

8人乗りのレンタカーで寿司詰め状態での小旅行、久しぶりに修学旅行にタイムスリップしたみたいで、最高でした。^^

TSA120-BINO by EMS-ULS

Dear Tatsuro,

My last components arrived this morning for the “Bi-Tak120” from Range in Shanghai so I have just finished assembly of the binoscope.
It is raining here and very cloudy so first light will have to wait a few days.
I will be using it initially on a Skywatcher AZ-EQ6GT mount but will later build a custom fork mount to have a lightweight system.
I will send some more pictures once I get a chance to take the scope outside.
Thank you once again for the fantastic EMS-ULS system, they fitted perfectly into the adapters Range designed and arranged for me.
Good health and best regards,
Matt

Congratulation on the great success of your fine Binoscope!
I would like to give you my utmost applaud on your feat.
You have learnt a lot of things about binoscope making beyond the language barriers.
EMS-ULSセット(ヘリコイド目幅仕様)をお送りしただけで、このような立派んなBINOを完成されました。お見事です! 追加のリポートも追って、くださるそうなので、楽しみです。^^

BORG-77ED2-BINO modules / 77ED2-BINOのモジュール

At the last minute of the assembly of 77ED2-BINO, preliminarily prepared modules were found not to make a focus, and I had to order “7070” in a hurry.

90FL-BINOの経験から、50mm長い鏡筒パイプ(150mm)を確保していたのですが、想定していたモジュールセットでは、ピントが全く及ばない(鏡筒が短過ぎる)ことが判明し、急遽、7070を追加発注して入荷待ちです。
メーカーサイトにはシステムチャートが公開されてはいますが、当方のシステムを検討するには、親切とは言い難いチャートです。
(時々苦言を呈して来ましたが、連携が不十分と言っているのはこうした意味です。)

The first snow / 最初の雪(鳥取市)

  

We had a first snow in the center of Tottori City.
The photos were taken at 7 A.M. and no snow can be seen now.(4:30 P.M.)

今朝はこちらで、この冬初めての目立った雪。(写真は午前7時頃)
今、午後4時半現在は溶けていますが、非常に寒いです。 いよいよ本格的な冬の到来のようです。
