Summary: Best deal for the price of any astronomy binoc to me anyway. Once I put a wide strap on them, they became my favorites. I did not know the center star in the pleides was vivid yellow. Of course if the star is not really yellow, then these are horrible binocs. They won't replace my Japanese 9x63s for day and night, they are my favorite grab for quick evening only sessions.
Pros: well built, excellent images throughout range, large aperture
Cons: strap is useless unless you enjoy discomfort
Summary: Best i've seen yet. These are the real deal. The price was right too. They're not as heavy as I thought they would be either, and they come with a tripod adapter, neck strap and cleaning cloth
Summary: very nice for a low price. using a tripod and a chair allows very comfortable summer night viewing for extended periods. hand holding for me a few moments without support is ok. after that, I start to shake too much. Watch out for wrenching your neck when viewing stars, use the tripod and get ergonomic in your approach or you will not use them long for night viewing of stars. Moon is very nice, get a telescope if you realy need to see the moon.
Summary: Great value for the money; even though they are kind of heavy and bulky, I am not using them for long periods of time and the expense of my purchase justified having to deal with the extra weight.
Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
