Product Details

  • The Orion 2x54 Ultra Wide Angle Binocular combines an ultra-low power with an ultra-wide field-of-view, supercharging your eyeballs and taking naked eye astronomy to another level. An incredible 36° field-of-view (FOV) allows constellations to fit into one field. And the binoculars brighten up fainter stars, allowing you to see about 1.2 magnitudes fainter than you can with just your own eyeballs. For example: from a dark-sky site, you can see down to around magnitude 6 stars with your naked eye; imagine enhancing that view down to mag 7.2 with these binoculars. It's like looking at a detailed star-chart, except now the actual sky becomes your chart!

    Low power coupled with a big lens provides a massive FOV and adds to the effect of the sky being your own personal star chart.

    Orion 2x54 Ultra Wide Angle Binoculars-4

    These binoculars are a variation on a Galilean design but also include extra lens elements to enhance the field-of-view and also reduce aberrations compared with standard Galilean designed optics. The brightness in this style binocular is simply the square of the magnification, and the FOV is directly proportional to the size of the objective. Therefore you get 4x brighter images than naked-eye, and a truly massive 36° field. The result is an enhanced naked-eye feel when gazing through these binoculars at the arms of the Milky Way and individual whole constellations.

    Compact and lightweight, the Orion 2x54 Ultra Wide Angle Binoculars make a very nice addition to your astronomy equipment arsenal, bridging the gap between your larger binoculars and simple naked eye astronomy. Hundreds more stars appear in the view, and panning around the Milky Way from a dark sky site is simply jaw dropping. Features individual eyepiece focusing, a solid center axis hinge that holds collimation well, fully multi-coated lenses, and includes a carrying case and caps to protect the lenses.

Different but Excellent.

I’m old enough to remember the old style Gallilean binoculars, so I was a bit dubious about buying these unseen online. I'm glad I did though. They are ultra compact, the build quality and optics are excellent, and the live, magnitude enhanced, whole constellation views are very therapeutic. My other binocs are 36x100 Miyauchi’s and 12x50 Swarovski’s, so these 2x54’s fill a gap. They’re actually good for observing fast moving flocks of birds too. I suspect spectacles may be a problem. I’m short sighted but setting the eyepieces to infinity works well without specs. The depth of field is remarkable so everything over 3 meters away is fine (with a little help from my eyes auto focussing). My only criticism is that the hard metal eyepieces are uncomfortable, but a pair of eye cups solved that problem.

Orion 2x54 Ultra Wide Angle Binoculars

These are a serious piece of work: well engineered, great optics, good heft, and fills an important niche. I’m fortunate to live under clear southern skies that reward ***** eye viewing, but these make it a whole new experience. Brilliant.
