Awesome optics in a ruggedly built, though light weight package.

  • Summary: I bought this binocular to use instead of a spotting scope for hunting deer in the high desert. I am thoroughly impressed by the optical quality and the construction. I have actually been able to spot deer more readily with this than by using my old spotting scope even though the magnification of the spotting scope is higher. It is also shorter and lighter weight than the spotting scope. Once I was even able to see two hunters walking at a distance of over 3 miles.

Steiner Senator 15/20 x 80 binoculars

  • Summary: I am somewhat of a binocular collector, owning at least 50 pairs over the years, and these were always one of those "gotta haves" to add to my collection. I'd wanted the 20x version but ultimately settled on the 15x version being a better choice, those using this for purely astronomy applications and using a tripod may do better with the higher magnification.

Amazing power and clarity

  • Excerpt: Mated to a tripod, these binoculars will change your relationship to your landscape. I use the 20x80 Steiner for long-distance observation. Under proper seeing conditions, I can pick out rough details of a lighthouse I know to be more than 100 miles from my regular viewing location. I am able to read ship names from 15-20 miles away. The amount of light these binoculars gather during twilight and moonlit nights is amazing. Image quality is remarkable.
  • Pros: Bomb-proof, Bright Image, Depth of field, Incredible power, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Tripod or monopod only

Absolutely awesome

  • Excerpt: I have used many binos in the past that at full zoom, the lenses point at slightly different spots giving you a headache. I used these Steiners for surveillance and was able to positively ID a boat at 3 miles! I highly recommend these in low light situations and even in rain! I would have paid twice as much if I knew they were this good!
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

  • Summary: When it comes to quality optics, you get what you pay for and I was fortunate enough to pick these up for a great price and from a straight forward seller. I did my research before buying and encourage everyone to do the same to avoid making a wrong choice.
