  3. Helios quantum 4 20x80 IF binoculars with triplet objectives. Pristine condition, used just a handful of times briefly. Selling due to having little time to use since my situation has changed, also my garden fence is now owned by tesco hence major light pollution from car park Would prefer a collection from Staffordshire or a meet if you like. These give stunning views of deep sky and I did get them out last night on jupiter and seen 5 pin sharp moons along with the planet. All optics are pristine, mark and dust free, never even touched the glass. All eyecups a
  4. Hi I own a pair of helios quantum 4 20x80 triplets, I have only used them half a dozen times due to being busy, hence my lack of activity on here, but I'm really impressed by them, but there pretty heavy and can be hard to hand hold for any length of time.

But having got it set up in the garden I noticed firstly alot of play in the focusing tube and it wobbled about a bit in the assembly, I believe there like that, so I removed the focusing tube and placed a shim of plastic around the inside of the focusser assembly so the tube slides up a
  8. Esde optik 20x80 made in Japan. I don't actually use them anymore no time but there razor sharp and a joy to look through.
  9. Leica trinovid 10x25 :-). The moon is nice through em..
  10. Forgive my ignorance but what's this ba8 about it seems to be popular in descriptions at the moment, is it something new?
  11. Cheers all, I must admit I like the look and price of the strathspey one, it looks sturdy...and its cheap enough, cheers for the link..
