Mostly good

Ron, opticsplanet.com
12 February 2013
  • Summary: I use it mostly for astronomy and occasional views of high flying jets with their contrails. When I used the binoculars with the binocular mount, there was so much lateral vibrations that it was just about useless.
  • Pros: Nice views of the heavens; feels like a "space walk"
  • Cons: Flimsy binocular mount

Great Binocular If You Are Using Tripod

Steven G, Adorama
13 December 2012
  • Excerpt: These binoculars are great if you plan on using a tripod to look at very distant objects or celestrial viewing. The image was clear and sharp. They also did well in low light. They are not great for bird watching or hand holding.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Priced Right, Sharp Image
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor Image Stabilization

A broader view is needed.

Dolomede, Amazon
29 March 2015
  • Summary: Always promised myself a pair of these and they perform well. They are - as is only to be expected - heavy. Stability of vision over more than a few seconds is best achieved by using a support surface or a tripod - they are easily mounted by buying the accessory necessary for a few pounds.

1- Very easy to use even for a complete amateur

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: Pros: 1- Very easy to use even for a complete amateur, and you can do so almost straight out of the box. 2- Magnification is great (I could make of individual craters on the moon). 3- Well-built and with a sturdy feel.
