I have had these binos for a month now, and have been fortunate to experience some good skies during that time so that they have seen some use. They arrived well packed, and the speed of delivery was so quick I was actually surprised to get them so fast. I bought them to upgrade my grab and look backyard astronomy from the old pair of 10 x 50's I was using, and it definitely has been an upgrade. (I still use the 10 x 50's though.) I have heard that there are collimation issues with some of these instruments, this is why I bought from Amazon, I have had good experiences with the occasional necessary return, but in this case there was no problem. I use them both lying on a lounger and on a tripod. (I must stop lying on that tripod, it can't be doing me any good. Of course I mean the binos are on the tripod and I look through them) On the lounger I find it possible to hold them steady enough to get good views of, for example, the star clusters in Aurigia, the Beehive (my favourite at the moment) and the Whirlpool galaxy (near the zenith, fair enough). I also believe I have caught a glimpse of the Crab nebula, but though the seeing is very good here in West Wales, I may be fooling myself. On a tripod, though, they are much better. I have seen the elongation of Saturn's shape caused by the rings, though again, the wish may be father to the sight. The problem with the tripod is that it is very difficult to view objects near the zenith, hence the lounger, though I am working on this. Using the methods for testing binoculars laid- out in Scagell and Frydman's "Stargazing with Binoculars" also highly recommended, this instrument seems to be doing what it says on the tin.Read more ›

This was bought as a gift for my husband who has what I class as huge telescopes for viewing nebulars etc but none of them are particularly portable or travel friendly without planning, these binoculars are perfect for him when we are out and about and didn't happen to bring a 5ft telescope with us! The quality is just as good as the Celestron counter part and the customer service is fantastic! One note to users, you might find using a camera tripod with an adapter arm helpful is getting rid of the human shakes for good viewing

These were delivered to me well within the specified time, no drama. I purchased these on recommendation from a stargazing forum as a "beginner, check out the basics before committing to something more expensive". I am not disappointed.

The product certainly seems well made, they have a reassuring weightiness to them (suggesting good quality materials) without being overly heavy. As I am a complete amateur in this department I will not comment with authority on the effectiveness or quality of the optics as I think this is something that I will learn to appreciate over time. I will say from a personal perspective that they deliver great clarity and magnification, when pointed at the moon and the hands steadied, you can see a lot more crater detail for example.

For those like me who are new to this I will just re-iterate the "steadied hand" part, it is in no way a fault of the product so I cannot detract from the rating, but you will more than likely need to brace them on something if looking at stars (unless you are a surgeon...) as even small movements get exaggerated in the field of view.

For less pin point specific tasks like checking out wildlife in a nearby wood or whatever these also work extremely well.

For the money paid this product has yet to present a flaw worthy of stealing a star from the five offered.

For a budget price a superb piece of kit. They are quite heavy but solid at the same time. Use a tripod or rest with them. The lenses have standard green anti-reflective coating on them like spectacles do. Case is cheap and inside pocket tore the first time I pushed the cleaning cloth into it. Get a solid case if you can as these will be prone to misalignment if you knock them too hard.

For £50, these represent excellent value for money. So far I've focussed them in the correct manner (close one eye...etc) and the focussing is very generous, not sudden and critical, and with a good, easy to turn focus ring. The focusing is especially accurate for the left eye. The right eye is the tiniest bit softer (perhaps it's my eye and not the bino's) but almost un-noticable so that, when you view through both eyes you get a very sharp overall scene.

Weight-wise I can hold them for a good 20+ seconds or so before putting them down again (though my left arm is not as strong as it used to be), but when looking at stars no amount of hand-holding will keep them steady - I bought this tripod from Amazon.co.uk

http://www.amazon.co.uk/First-8115-Horizon-Heavy-Tripod/dp/B0039ZM8K8/ref=sr_1_9?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1409852736&sr=1-9&keywords=heavy+Duty+Tripod

called "Horizon Heavy Duty Tripod" (model 8115). I've yet to mount them on this tripod but am aware others use it to mount binoulars up to x100, so no problems. A good tripod is essential for astronomy use. Just lying down on my back, scanning the skies (they do feel a little heavier, I must admit in this position, as their weight wants to push against the eyes) I tracked what I think was a satellite. It looked very bright as it moved steadily across the night sky, yet, when I removed the binoculars from my eyes it was impossible to see with the naked eye. Looked again through the bino's and there it was once more. Quite impressive! And the moon, even viewed with the bino's hand-held was quite a sight, with good detail from craters half lit half in shadow (you see the whole moon - the power of these binoculars will not fill the view with parts of the the moon) , that just cannot be seen with the naked eye.
