Nothing wrong with chair, but when i opened the box found it had got a broken hinge where the two sections of the chair join together,the( hinge had broken away from the screws)so it had to go back

Game changer
30 September 2022  | 

I've had a succession of chairs and stools used for observing and they've all been too high, too low, too heavy or unstable...a couple have even collapsed! (ok, I'm a bit fat....)

I'd had enough. I'd always looked enviously at the Charon by Berlebach but told myself it was a silly price for a few bits of wood. Then, after my last chair debacle, my patience snapped and I ordered one. After all, it's only the price of an average eyepiece...😉

So it got its first 'light' tonight. Wow, talk about a game changer! It's easy to fold, unfold, carry and adjust. The seat is comfortable (if slightly small) and the sloping back gives good support when resting or using binoculars. I was getting fussy, moving the seat up by a couple of inches and down by a couple more - any height is easy. The top setting is higher than my bum and I'm 6' 4"! Great for people with huge dobs, I'd guess.

All in all, and I never thought I'd say this, it's worth every penny. 100% recommended and one of my best ever astro buys

Why didn't I buy one of these years ago!

I received my new observing chair recently and although I've only had the opportunity to use it once, I know for a fact that it's going to change my observing time for the better. No need to contort myself around the eyepiece, I can sit there comfortably for as long as I need to (until something resolves...), and even relax back and look up when I need a break from the EP - why didn't I buy one of these years ago?

The chair itself is really well made, folds flat for storage and the act of adjusting the seat height take a matter of seconds and can easily be done with one hand. For me the seat is perfectly comfortable and already money very well spent.

Very good chair

Excellent quality, reasonably light and folds flat for storage. Extremely easy to use. It takes literally two seconds to change the height position - just pull out the seat and drop it into the required slot. No knobs buttons levers. Oh and it goes with my Planet tripod 🙂
