what binoculars do you own


Recommended Posts

Helios Apollo High Resolution 15x70 & Helios Naturesport-Plus 10x50 . Both very good. Just got to get a mount for the apollos and I'd say they will going to take some beating then when mounted. They are very good now. Both are.

I've been a long time Canon 15x50is owner, but in the last 2 years, whenever i've been out for a quick binocular session i reach for my Fujinon 7x50s I purchased them used on here a few years ago

On Monday I received my first pair of adult binoculars. Olympus DPS-I 10x50 and wow I'm impressed and rather embarrassed to confess I don't recall ever looking at the night sky with binoculars. Wildli

I have many sizes/types for a variety of purposes, from a lowly 2.3x up to 32x. For handheld astro use, from dark skies, for the last 20 years I have been continually satisfied with these 10x50s:

Getting to really like using my new Williams Optics 10x50s. Had a bit of a false start with the Barr & Stroud 10x50ED (discussed elsewhere) which was a shame because they are very good, The strange thing is that until now - if I could use binoculars without my specs I would - but the WOs  are so good to use with my specs its no longer an issue! I think its because the eyepiece lens' are set in a bit - it just works well for me - plus, of  course the eyepieces are huge which also helps. The WOs (smaller brother/sister to the BA8 Helios Apollo 15x70s) are just so nice and easy to use and the optics are very good making the most of the 6+ field of view.  Definitely a good buy.

I was outside the other day/evening with my pair of 10X50 Bresser which i bought in Lidl for about £18. I'm still blown away with the quality and clarity of image that these bins have. Absolutely must be the best astronomy bargain i have ever gotten.

I have one good binocular.   I bought them for birding and spotting wildlife with but have had them out to look skyward and they are very good.   In very low light, I can still see in the shadows and make things out.

Mine are the Nikon 8x32 LX Venturer model from about 8 years ago.    Small, lightweight and they have very good glass in them.
