Good handheld astronomy binocular

  • Summary: This binocular had excellent image quality and great build quality. The full multi-coating and blackened and baffled interior pretty much eliminate stray light. Stars are sharp and show plenty of color, and deep sky objects show reasonable definition. The eyepieces are comfortable to look through. Unfortunately, the 8x56 format has a couple of hindrances. First, it's heavy. Looking through it while standing can be a chore.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, comfortable to look through
  • Cons: narrow field of view, a bit heavy
