These quirkly new binoculars from Vixen have been developed for widefield observation of, for example, the Milky Way. They use a Galilean optic with 2.1x magnification which promises a more "walk in" view than 6x or 8x binoculars.
They are supplied in a soft carry case, these binoculars have been jointly developed with Miyauchi and are made in Saitama, Japan.
You can read an excellent review of this product on the Alpha Lyrae Website where our customer Matthew concludes;
"Not only will the Vixen SGs reveal the complexities of the Milky Way that are only hinted at with the unaided eye and allow you to take in all but the largest constellations in one view with otherwise unachievable levels of detail, but they are an incredibly useful tool for those who like to star hop. With a magnitude gain of approximately +1.5 over the unaided eye on point sources, they really assist in hoping towards a target when the guide stars are a little too faint to be comfortably seen naked eye."
