Summary: Got them for stargazing as the aperture is quite appropriate. Really impressed. See loads more stars with them. Optical quality is top notch. Light enough to hold comfortably and tripod mountable with a seperately sold bracket. Handy tip - use a smart phone led torch and point it through the eyepiece to create a powerful spotlight. Also works as a telephoto lens for phone cam in the same way.
Summary: A very reliable pair of binoculars for birdwatching and stargazing. I do not know much about binoculars but wanted a pair of binoculars, which were light enough to carry around generally and that would fulfill my limited use at a reasonable price. These are great for both. On a clear night you can pick out all the smaller stars in each of the galaxies, including all the associated clusters and other features that are generally viewable with any decent pair of binoculars.
Excerpt: my first binoculars and i wanted it specially for star grazing. best product in this range for terrestrial viewing for star grazing u need clear sky and dark location and then u will see the beauty of this product.for star grazing u need to be very still and hence a tripod is mandatory, even i thought so that it would be easy without tripod but for perfect view u need a tripod.
Excerpt: Its a nice binocular in this price range.. view is awesome..magnification and clarity is very very good.. I experimented photo and video shot by the use of this bino.. for this u just have to put your mobile cam over eyepiece of the bino and make some adjustments to find a clear view... then you can shot the objects far from you.. just try this... overall good bino little bit shaky sometimes..
Summary: These are great & Olympus is a name you can trust for excellent quality they come with a handy case all in all they really are great & I'm having a lot of pleasure with them watching the sea birds & all the various boats out in the channel also good on the moor watching the ponies & deer
Summary: Was really amazed at the clarity of the view you get through these binos, the optics are really really good, I would say amazing and at this price, would highly recommend. I also use them for looking at the stars at night, and was pleasantly surprised at how clear the night views of the constellations were. You will not be disappointed if you buy these, they are excellent binoculars!
