Excerpt: Only used a few times so far. Overall agree with the other comments. Optics are good (probably not outstanding, but nice enough for astronomy). Milky Way in Cygnus was really nice. Saw multiple Messier objects with the open clusters making the best views.
Excerpt: Sturdy while fairly light weight. Easily customized to your unique vision. Brings birds, animals, etc. close-up and three dimensional. Keeps iin focus while tracking fast moving objects, birds, boats, racers, etc. Holds focus sp you spend your time observing rather than adjusting.
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.
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.
