We believe these are the highest-quality binoculars you will find for less than $100. Includes the finest BAK4 prisms and is fully broadband multi-coated throughout. The bright, wide 6° field of view makes these ideal for binocular astronomy. The 56mm objectives gather 25% more light than 50mm binoculars (surface area = pi*r2). They are also excellent for general daylight usage. Both models offer a steady view without a tripod, but of course the 8x model will be steadiest when hand-hold. The high degree of eye relief and fold-down eyecups makes these models a great choice for those that wear eyeglasses. Heavily rubber-armored aluminum body, with brass 1/4-20 tripod adapter threading.
Also includes right ocular diopter adjustment, soft rubber ocular cover and objective covers, rugged nylon case, and neck strap.
Add a tripod (or monopod) and the tripod ships for free (Continental USA only).
