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

Decent and affordable binoculars for everyday use

  • Summary: I purchased these binoculars to observe the night sky and occasional birds and other sights. The first problem was with collimation which was set incorrectly, or the package had received a blow which had affected the setting.

Too many stars!

  • Excerpt: I would say that these are a pretty good entry level pair of binoculars for someone just starting to explore the night skies. The field of view is wide enough so that with a bit of practice you can know what constellations you are looking at, but the magnification is strong enough to blow your mind...
  • Pros: Good field of view, but with reasonable magnification .
  • Cons: Weight, and eyecups letting light in from the side .

Frágiles

  • Summary: Los compré para observar el cielo nocturno, y sin hacerles nada se descolimaron solos. Si a esto le unimos que necesitan un trípode para ver bien las cosas, no me compensa. Los devolví y compré otros de menos aumentos y más robustos.
