Excerpt: I recently moved to Newport, Oregon and wanted to be able to view wildlife and see the ships at sea. These binoculars blew me away. They provide so much detail...my girlfriend and I are truly impressed and amazed. This is my first pair of binoculars so I really don't have anything to compare them too...but I am so happy with my purchase.
Excerpt: These Nikon binoculars are very clear, offering amazing quality viewing! I have used these to whale watch from the beach, and was very impressed at how crystal clear the whales were, especially considering they were at least a half mile out to sea! I looked at other higher cost binoculars, and these were just as good, for a lot less money. I'll be buying another pair for family members to enjoy!
Excerpt: I am using it to see stars and planets. I have a telescope, but this binocular when fixed on a tripod shows good images. Due to the 50mm and less magnification than the telescope, the images are brighter and of a greater area, (Pleiades for instance).
Summary: I could not be happier with my new Aculon A211 16x50. At deer hunt open day, this binocular did not disappoint. The only negative is the Objective len cap was lost due the slot-to-strap hook. I am requesting a replacement from Nikon. Highly recommended.
Excerpt: I decided to buy these binoculars after accidentally dropping my Nikon Eagleview zoom pair on vacation. I am very pleased with these. They're a bit heavy, but that's to be expected as they feel very sturdy- unlike the Eagleview pair. They focus well in dim light. Overall, they're a very good value- and should last for years.
