Summary: These binoculars are worth the purchase price. The view is sharp at all focal lengths. Light weight, yet still hand holdable at maximum zoom, although I would recommend a monopod for extended viewing at 22x. The chromatic aberrations are minimal even in bright light. Great all around binocular.
Summary: It was suggested these could be used for looking at neighbouring planets (I used a tripod when using full zoom), but they no better then a cheap pair I already own. May be useful for bird watching etc, but no good for the night sky. The zoom suggested 10x22, but not sure if this correct or if this is a bit of spin.
Summary: I found the binoculars to be of a lesser quality than that I would have expected from Nikon. Although the magnification was as indicated, I found the field of vision to be too narrow, even when used with the 10x magnification. The build of the binoculars, again, was not what I would have expected from Nikon, minor, albeit, important features let the product down.
Summary: binoculars are fine but missing on of the large lens covers. It seems impossible to get a missing component from Amazon despite my requests. Will revert to high st to ensure a better all round service.
