These quirky 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. 

Supplied in a soft carry case, these binoculars have been jointly developed with Miyauchi and are made in Saitama, Japan.

Note: due to the type of optic employed, these may not provide a full field of view for glasses wearers.
