When I was a little boy, my father came home one day and gave me and my brother a flashlight. I aimed it at the night sky to signal the people on the stars. My dad laughed and told me it would take years for it to be seen by anyone. I was amazed and confused, but it had piqued my interest in science and understanding the why behind all things in nature.
Soon after he got me some binoculars which showed so many more stars and it was great to see nature and wildlife too. When I was 12 I finally got my first telescope. It was a 4-inch reflector telescope with a focal length of 900 mm. I had a lot of fun exploring the night sky but my thirst for knowledge grew and more questions arose …
I haven’t made telescopes my profession, although I’m still fascinated by astronomy and cosmology. But binoculars have become part of my everyday life and I hardly know when I haven’t had them nearby, whether for work, they are an indispensable tool at sea or for leisure when traveling and hiking.
If you have any questions regarding binoculars, please feel free to email me. I’m sure I can give you a few tips.
