Excerpt: Close birdwatching the day they arrived proved amazingly clear with good contrast. Last night, viewing Comet Lovejoy with the use of the included tripod adapter on a Gitzo Tripod, the scatter of light was minimal. It provided great views of star clusters and the Orion Nebula. The eye objective with adjustable depth eyecups for eyeglasses was a nice bonus. Well constructed and water resistant against evening dew also a bonus. The assembly of the case could be better.
Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I bought thereto use for general astronomical viewing in an area with lots of town light. They're great for this and have exceeded my hopes. They also provided enough magnification to see Comet Lovejoy recently. I strongly recommend using them on a tripod. They come with a basic tripod mount adapter, which works fine.
Excerpt: I'm a birder of sorts, and my wife and I have two pairs of 10x50 Nikons that work just fine. I wanted more enlargement, and these 16x50s are just what the doctor ordered. They don't weigh but a few ounces more than the 10x50s, but seeing something at 60% larger is a real thrill! The housing is comfortable and provides a good grip, and the lens protectors fit very snugly. The eyepiece adjustments are easy to use and change for different users. I love 'em!
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof
Excerpt: Heavy, yes, and that's the one and only con I have for this well built piece ( some may need a tripod ) The optics are amazing, the view is so bright and clear and I am so surprised at how crisp and detailed the subject was at a distance of a couple miles, I've owned binoculars, spotting scopes and telescopes all my life but when I hold this Nikon I can feel it is a substantial piece, and compact for it's power and a precision optic that can't be beat for the price, just...
Pros: Bright Image, Compact, Crisp Focus, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I'm using these because I live in a highrise with the best view in the world and wanted to get a better view of the boats and wildlife from my balcony. Glad I chose the 16x50's instead of 10x50's - the extra magnification is helpful. The 16x50's are right on the verge of requiring a tripod (not necessary, but very helpful), and when looking at slow-moving things (boats, the moon, buildings, etc) I always use the tripod.
Excerpt: These are Value minded binocs and not of high quality. I would rec you save your money for some time and get a pair of Minox 15 power for 599 or Vortex 15power for 650. The images are okay in the middle of the day but they struggle to gather light in early AM and late eves. The edges are blurred. Higher power binocs of quality are hard to,come by and you get what you pay for,,,,,, Go try some high power binocs and compare, then shop for the best deal.
