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

The observing chair arrived on time and in good condition
After opening the box and looking at the item i found it to be of superb quality and ease of storage and use to first class I haven't used it yet but expect it to perform as most berlebach products
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.

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 🙂
