    Need Help Deciding

    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

    Which Nikon binos should I get? Beginner.

    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

    Binocular photography

    I use this https://www.firstlightoptics.com/adapters/celestron-nexyz-3-axis-universal-smartphone-adapter.html To be fair only used it couple of times but did get some decent pictures of the moon and you can use the smart phone zoom function to enlarge image
  11. I know what you mean mate I use the Apollo 22x85's and the Moon is just awesome through them
