Summary: I enjoy my new 80x20 Konus Bino's a lot. Working 3rd shift take's away from my viewing time terribly bad, until I bought my Konus astro binocular's. Now when it's clear I can start gaze on my break's at work. When it's too cold I can sit in my vehicle and stargaze with the heat. The quality is great, very little false color, the moon's of Jupiter look like diamond's and the ring's around Saturn are clear as crystal. I will enjoy my new binocular's for year's to come.
Summary: as a binocular, I see 2 images. Unlike my 10x50 0r 7x32 made in china binoculars, I can't get a single image. I covered one eyepiece and it is a descent spotting scope- a very heavy one. Primary use: Target archery Secondary use: terrestrial and astronomical use.
Summary: I took these binoculars on a cruise ship and used them to see several objects in the sky as well as on land. For best results I recomment a tripod or some other means of holding steady. They have a build in tripod adaptor, so it is an easy task.
Pros: Easily transported when traveling
Cons: At about 5pounds it needs support for viewing
Summary: I couldn't find alot of info on the web about these binoculars so I stuck with the reviews about them from here and I'm glad I did. They are MUCH better than I expected. Very well made for the price. Real clear view day or night.
Summary: I can't believe the quality and power for this price. I have paid MUCH more in the past and gotten less. I couldn't be more pleased. The literature warms you of the weight but it's not prohibitive. A tripod is still preferable. Can't think of anything I don't like about it. Even the case is more substantial than expected.
Summary: better fit and finish than I expected for the price. Great views in daylight or at night - really pulls in the faint stuff. Forget the thin neck strap - use a tripod or mount. You CAN hand-hold them for short periods, but the views will be pretty shaky at 20x. The center focusing wheel mover very smoothly. Too smoothly! It was very easy to bump them out of focus, especially while trying to focus the right eyepiece. Overall a good deal - especially for the $$.
Summary: These binoculars are very cheap compared with some of the competition. However, i found them very easy to use and they offered excellent views. I've used them mainly for night-sky viewing and there is little distortion visable looking at the stars or planets. The mount is also good as is the eye spacing (a problem on some large binoculars) and they are also extraordinarly light for their size. Recommended.
