  1. Hello and welcome to the SGL from Suffolk England UK
  2. I would say that the 18x50 is too powerful they are great for sky view and long distance 15 miles plus I must say I have been using Canon 15x50 IS for many years and I think they are a great all-rounder and are half the price of the Canon 10x42L let us know what you decide
  3. I have had a pair of Canon 15x50 IS for several years and they go everywhere with me Holidays ect but they are mostly used for Astronomy when you get older your arms are not so steady and you tend to shack a bit you press the button and it just stops they are very impressive even works on a ship, to me they are worth every penny I will say there are certain time of the year you can find them reduced, I have tried the 18x50 and did not like them as much as the 15x50 any questions please ask You get the best out of quality
  4. I have had Canon I.S 15x50 for about 6 years before they went water proof :-) but it doesn't mean much to me as I don't use them in the rain I use them mostly for Astronomy very clean and very stable to me worth the money there are times of the year when they are reduced so keep your eyes open
  5. Yes they will pick out the 4 big moons but you will only see them as dots more than that you will need a scope best of luck
  6. Congratulations on a fine choice of eyepiece one of the best on the market ,now all we need is the weather
  7. Congrats on getting a fine eyepiece I have a few Nagler and fine them top notch I have a 26mm and would says it is a favorite of mine Clear skies
  8. Image stabilising bins are great had a pair for years the best way to view is laying flat, I own a pair of Canon 15x50 like everything we do it takes a bit of practice after a few times you will get used to hold your arms up is that position I think they are a good investment as they go on every holiday plus used for a quick look in the back garden when I can't be bothered to get my scope out ,I personally would not get 8x25 noir the 8x30 unless you're a bird watches or going to the races :-) the wider the objective lens the more light that enters the more you will see a pair of ordinary binoculars to hold should not be bigger than 10x50 hope this helps any question please ask
  9. I just like to say as I normally say to friend look on OPT USA site they are usually cheaper but not time even with our 20% VAT (tax) it is £26.00 cheaper here thats $37.00 for our American friends at Telescope House Oh ,I have no affiliation with this company except I brought my scope there
