Smaller version of the Berlebach NIX II observing chair.
Lightweight and easy to carry with fully adjustable height.
Made from high quality materials this is a handy observing chair for in an observatory or out in the field thanks to it's easy, foldaway lightweight design.
I've had observing chairs before. They've been heavy or they've had springs and things and, to be honest, they have got in the way of my observing pleasure; the Hydra II improves it. It's light, compact in use and for storage and, in my opinion, comfortable. The other big plus is ease and range of height adjustment. I've long been a fan of Berlebach tripods but I wish I had taken the plunge with their observing chairs years ago.
Like others, I did wonder if I should spend £200 on a chair or buy an eyepiece. I have to say, Iím glad I bought the chair. It is a very simple design and very well made with quality materials. Sometimes things just feel right and this chair does. It is comfortable, easy to adjust and just about the right size. I donít really have any negatives, just the fact that itís expensive but then thereís a certain satisfaction in owning something that gives you pleasure even when you are not using it.
