acceptable

  • Excerpt: Not bad for the money. The collimination was off. Not a big deal and easily fixed. Daytime viewing showed alot of distortion around the edges. Image seemed like it should have been brighter. Night time sky viewing seemed to be ok. I will keep these. Definitely need to use a tripod.

Good power

  • Excerpt: Good magnification, decent clarity for day-time use, hard to focus stars, probably best to focus at infinity during the day. Some chromatic fringing, but for [$]... not bad.
  • Pros: Strong Construction

SkyMaster okay for the price

  • Excerpt: Good for viewing the moon, but not really powerful enough for the stars. It's probably good for viewing wildlife during the day, but I haven't done that.
  • Pros: Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Heavy

OK, but arrived out of collimation

  • Summary: These binoculars were packed properly, but they still arrived badly out of collimation. Luckily the screws were easy to locate, so I did the collimation myself. Even tough the other screw was barely movable, the end result was good.

HUGE bins let down by average performance considering the impractical size

  • Summary: upon opening I was overwhelmed by the sheer weight and size of these beasts! expecting a justifiably rewarding eyegasm i was quite disappointed by their very narrow POV which is to be expected, and fine if the image was brilliant which tbh I wasn't having a wow factor with these considering the size...

The binoculars were not collimated when they arrived

S. Smith, Amazon
11 August 2012
  • Summary: Ever heard the word collimation, well I had not until these binoculars arrived. After a bit of on-line research I found out the term for miss-allingment (collimation) of the lenses and how to fix them. So I will give it a go to fix them.
