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. Weight is surprisingly light for the size.
Pros: Close Focus, Lightweight, Magnification, Nice Magnification
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. A tripod adapter is included with the binocular and would be needed for best viewing results, but for a quick scan of the heavens without the incomberance of a mount, these are great.
Summary: Just got these a couple days ago. I am thrilled with the quality! Delivery time was just as promised..Easily saw three of Jupiter's moons the first night. If a person enjoys stargazing as I do, they are perfect for easy portability and clarity. You might want to add a tripod if you wish to focus on an object for any length of time.They do weigh a little.
Excerpt: These are a great buy! These have a very clear view and the 15x is great for all around use. They fit very well in you hands and aren't that heavy. They appear very well built. They come with a neck sling and lens rag. They have a soft case included also with a sling attached. I am very pleased with these binoculars. I would highly recommend!
Pros: Ergonomic, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
