Not quite stable

  • Excerpt: The tripod stand holder is not centered. center of weight is far front than the tripod stand so that it tends to lean to front. This results shaking left and right when using normal camera tripod. It made me feel motion sick even though I just observed Jupiter stand still.
  • Pros: Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Unstable

  • Excerpt: I considered a pair of 15 X 70's that cost about 2 1/2 times more than these. Did the research on both these and the more expensive pair. Thank goodness I did not waste my money on the more expensive pair.

About what I was expecting

Jeff, B&H Photo
25 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I was hoping that I had found a one in a million bargain. It did not fulfill my hopes, but is still a very good buy. Field of view was a bit smaller than I was hoping for, but I knew it was limited by the description. Have no problem with collimation. 15x is great, I am use to 9x with my other pair.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Magnification, Nice Magnification

what a deal!

  • Excerpt: excellent astronomical biniculars! I was concerned about the weight after reading previous reviews, but found them to be lighter than my old 7x50's. I was looking for a large aperture binocular but wanted a low magnification so I could use them without a tripod.
