  1. Second hand pitfalls

    I have arranged to view and buy hopefully, i will check inside both lenses large and small. Look at a distant object to ensure that it is a single image and focus is right as for collimation not sure of an easy beginner way to check this.
  2. Second hand pitfalls

    So if i look through the lenses and can see one object, no double or bluring then i should buy them and be ok. I have read a couple of posts about checking collimation but its way over my head. Thanks for your help
  3. Second hand pitfalls

    Thanks for the reply, they are on a local selling site so i will be picking up. As this will be a first pair i just want to try and make sure i cover all bases. The seller has stated he has had them for years but never used, no box but bag and lense caps. I suppose if i check the lenses for scratches and pitting i should be ok, i hope
  4. I have seen a pair of skymaster binoculars 25x70 second hand, is there anything that i should look out for? I hqve been told no scratches or marks on the lenses. They are for sale for £40 or should i just buy new for the extra £30 to £40. Thanks in advance
  5. Wish these were the Opticron Adventurer 10x50 T WP , obviously not at this price but in the sale
  6. PRAKTICA Discovery Series

    Extract from the site I have seen them on. The perfect binocular for outdoor enthusiasts looking for a solid, multipurpose accessory for their travels. The PRAKTICA Series roof prism design and multi-coated optics deliver crystal clear images at an affordable price. Built with a durable rubber body, these waterproof, fogproof and nitrogen purged binoculars can survive all conditions. Whether you are a birdwatcher, sports fan or traveller you can be assured that these binoculars will last a lifetime.

  10. Celestron Sky Master 20x80 Bins

    Did you use these on a tripod or just hand held? If hand held how long do you think you would be able to use them without too much shake? Thanks
  11. Could anyone identify these please?

    Thanks for the help, being offered at £20 but don't want to waste the money if no good, prefer to put it to a better set if not sure
