Hi. Great to find this group. Very new here and not so young. My wife loves looking at the stars etc. We are lucky enough to live near the coast and spend many warm summer nights on the beach star gazing I guess. I have always owned a very old /cheap pair of binoculars 8x40 and have a newer pair of Nikon Aculon 10x25. As I said we are both in our late 50s and I don’t want to carry a telescope around. I’ve done quite a bit of online research into buying my wife a new pair of binoculars something that gives her a closer clearer view. I’ve read something about pupil size as we get older??? Not got a clue what that means?? I’m undecided between a 10x50 and something bigger ie 15x70. I understand the bigger we go the heavier it gets? I’ve looked at the Pentax SP 10x50 think they are around £100.
The opticron adventurer 10x50 T WP around £80. The Helios Stellar II 10x50 I think around £139. Then I got drawn into a review for Celestron skywatcher 15x70 for a very good price. So I’m very confused and hoping for some quality advice. I’ve read so many reviews I guess it’s a case of just making a decision. Also they all seem out of stock. Would really appreciate any help. Thanks.
