Excerpt: My husband and I moved this spring and had to leave our observatory behind. Not knowing when we’ll be able to have a new one built, it left me with little opportunity to use my 16” reflector because of its weight and my husband’s work schedule.
Excerpt: Bought these as a birthday present and decided to test them before actually giving them away. Sure glad I did! On first use the image was doubled and blurred, I repeatedly went through the steps outlined in the instructions to focus correctly but nothing worked.
Excerpt: I live in a good observing area, the Pilbara Western Australia, and I already have a 12 * Newtonian. It's a great telescope, but sometimes I don't want to go to the effort of setting it up, so the binoculars are an easy intermdiate level of observing between my eyes and telescope.
Excerpt: For their price and size this is a great set of binos. The feel and finish of these binos is excellent. With 2x 80mm lens's it can gather more light than a lot of the smaller telescopes, while being a lot more portable.
Pros: user friendly, Decent glass, Positive adjustments, portable, great first telescope, quality +++, Beautifully crisp image!
Excerpt: This a great buy for scouting the night sky. Has a large 80mm objective lens that picks up faint objects and large FOV that makes it easy to detect where you are. Will get the shakes if observing for a while, or trying to see detail on the moon and planets. A tripod would be handy.
