  1. Cheers again mate looks really interesting as usual
  2. the amazon basics tripod and trigger grip are decent anyway so you have the choice whether to use the tripod or monopod always same when you get new kit and try use it the weather messes it up lol
  3. Cheers again mate I will have a read of this at weekend
  4. cheers again mate ? I always read this very interesting
  5. Cheers again mate ? always an interesting read
  6. i have the action ex 8x40 and 12x50 and they are superb but for astronomical use i have them mounted as i cant hold them steady enough handheld the optics are superb imho if you do go for the action ex 16x50 i dont think they will dissapoint they are nitrogen purged and waterproof to 1m for 5 minutes next to my Helios Appollo 22x85 the 12x50 are my most used bin
  7. Yeh the Nikon Actions are a tad bigger and heavier than some other brands but i do think it adds to the overall feel of quality in them after using them handheld under the stars or looking at moon you really will notice a diference when tripod/monopod mounted enjoy em mate i really enjoy my Actions ?
  8. if they are all similar weight then i would go for the 11x version just a slightly larger image and will probably show more DSO's
  9. I think you will enjoy the Action EX bins mate ? Steve really enjoyed reading that comparison mate?
  10. The Nikon Action EX 12x50 and 7x35 have aspherical eye pieces the 10x50 dont this helps to keep a less distorted image towards the edge of the field of view and the 12x50's are my most used binoculars I dont know the price diferance between the 10x50 and 12x50 in your area but may be worth considering I just love the bright clear image i get with them
  11. it is really amazing the diferance when you mount binoculars on a monopod/tripod the view is just so much better have fun using the Nikons they are a good binocular
