Hi all,

I have been gifted a pair of Arena Observation 25x100 binoculars and a Slik Pro 700DX tripod. I have trawled the internet, but have been unable to find any information on the binoculars. Could someone kindly provide me with any info on them, they seem pretty damn good.

TIA

Are they branded Arena or Eshenbach.

Can you supply an image?

The only marking on them is 'Arena Observation'. From looking around the web I came to the conclusion that they were made by Eschenbach, but couldn't confirm this.

.........very little information on these bins as you said. I'm sure someone will find something?
Can you provide an image, sometimes the style/shape can help better identify a product or its clone?

I was browsing between jobs today, iPhone got down to 2% so had to shut it down ( no charger with me, but good enough excuse to buy a new black braided lightning cable instead of the standard Apple white! can get some power from the radio's USB)  but yes, there's very little, in-fact I don't even see that Eschenbach  even make 25x100's.

I'm hoping the clouds clear  tonight so that I can test my new fence panel screen, just using my 15x70's, see if there's any improvement over what I can see, given that the panels might just shield the stray lights a little better than what I'm used too!

I too am hoping for a clear night. Had these bins for a few days now and I've not had a chance to see what they can do. Other than looking a hillside during daylight!

No matter what you receive or buy, if you think their good, you'll state their good, however, there are better binoculars out there?
However, go out and borrow or buy the better version and see for yourself if their really any better for your eyes! If they are you'll want to move on, but if not, you'll keep what works best for you.

I bought some cheap 15x70's and have often discounted them, then just like a telescope, used from a darker site, there's no doubt the image is better, but I still think these present binoculars in my case are holding me back, there's something not right? so I  want to obtain another set of 15x70's from a known, better brand, to further assess my requirement.

I stopped looking Saturday night, found nothing ?
They do look nice! Maybe now someone may see some similarity to another brand possibly, in order to identify and achieve the aim of getting some sort of .pdf document with the binocular specifications.

Thanks again for looking. Hopefully there is somebody out there who has seen these before or knows something about them. Would really like to know the specs/details.

      Hi all, 
      I've decided to stay in the house tonight with the anticipation of some clear skies later on, and to hopefully get the chance of splitting a few double stars - something that I've never done before. After a while looking through some charts at my desk with a rather nice glass of red, I've come to the conclusion that Cygnus and the Northern Cross seem like a pretty good place to start. 
      My first port of call will definitely be Albireo at the foot of the Cross.. I'm excited about this one as it sounds like a beautiful view through a pair of binoculars, not to mention the easiest to find! I'll then move over to the Cygnus triple all being well and then the three doubles (Mu Cygni, 79 Cygni and 61 Cygni). 
      Now all that's left to do is await the darkness, and hope the clouds disappear! 
      Hope you're all having a great weekend.
      Cheers, Mark 😁

      On the 2nd of July I closed my curtains one night before I went to bed but, before they were shut I noticed a strange multicoloured light flickering low in the sky in the northern celestial hemisphere. I Thought to myself if that is a star it looks amazing. The next night (3rd of July) I decided to take another look at this multicoloured light which was still there, Only this time I used my binoculars, I was seeing blues, greens & reds. We have all seen stars by looking up into the sky but, I have never seen a star create multi colours before. It makes you feel excited inside and you think that no one else can see this until you tell them and share the same experience together. I believe I was looking at the Capella Star which is the brightest star in the constellation Auriga and your not kidding it is bright. I cant wait to have another look tonight to see if the multi colours are still there. I would like to have taken at picture of it but I am not setup to do that just yet as I am very new to star gazing. I wish someone here can confirm what I saw and to post a picture of it would be awesome.

      Thought this might be of interest
      made binocular tripod modification to use my25x100 celestrons. The original tripod was redundent so added £30 of steel and bits and it works well. Bit of refining but may be later!
