Summary: I am extremely pleased with the binoculars and the service from Picsio. I ordered them on Sunday afternoon and they arrived Tuesday afternoon, well packed and secure. The binoculars are pin sharp and very robust.
Summary: Lovely optics. I'm no expert so my assessment is based on nothing more scientific than the clarity of the image which is excellent. And the most surprising point for 12x magnification is that they focus down to a few metres.
Summary: I bought these binoculars as my first pair in order to watch both birds & the stars. I cannot fault them for either use. They are easy to use & come with instructions for focussing which were very useful for a newbie like me.
