This looks supremely comfortable. Great job!


Yes, it is beyond anything I have experienced in well over 30 years of observing.
My "first impression" notes above are not an exaggeration, this is truly an immersive experience. Can't wait to get my 20x80's on it
The impression of "laid back floating among the stars" is inescapable. A tangible sense that you are no longer Earth-bound.

Fantastic. I have been experimenting with a Gary Seronik type of bino mount that he previewed in an 2012-2013 article in Sky and Telescope. I was trying to make his design work with a pair of 25X100 mm 10# binos. His setup used much smaller and lighter binos. Where I live, I have no real good place to set it up. Your design is quite intriguing. Thanks for sharing this idea.

My zero g chair arrived today. I like the swivel you made.
