Summary: Was really looking forward to these and getting to view the nights sky. Was a little disappointed not to see more with them (Maybe my own high expectations). Could see Jupiter and its moons but was wanting to view Orion's nebula but just not getting the distance out of the bins.
Summary: You will need a tripod to use bins with such a large magnification, trying to view objects hand held is impossible, but that applies to any large mag optics. This particular pair suffer from horrendous chromatic aberration but then what do you expect for the price.
Summary: A good item for the star gazing beginner. They certainly look the part, feel a good quality item and are quite powerfull. Remember they are an impressive 25 x magnification! However after two years of occasional use, both folding rubber eye pieces has now completly split and perished.
