Hello SGL community! 

I'm new to the forums so excuse me if this not common or prohibited behavior but I wanted to know if it is okay to bump a topic I posted but got no replies. It's been two days I think since I posted it.

I've known this site for a couple of years and I came here for help once so I thought I could ask for advice again. 

As I was spellchecking this I noticed that people have viewed my topic and I guess this topic is sort of a bump in itself so excuse me anyway...

Hello!....and Welcome,

I am sure you will get some replies in due course regarding your bino question.........I am sorry I cannot help with this as I do not have binos in that size range. But what I will say (not on the subject I know) is that if the SVBONY company ever produce something in that size range, 70 to 80mm they would be well worth considering, because I have tried their 8x32 and 10x42 SV202 ED range and found them to be amazing performers for a very low price. They were reviewed by Neil English I think, who was spot on with his assesment. Even though I would not normally use the smaller model for astro, they showed pin point stars in a nice wide field - the 42's were even better - I tried them agains a pair of 10x42 Leica Trinovids and they were pretty close!  Unfortunately the biggest apertures I can see from them is 50mm (and not in the SV202 range) which is below your size requirement.

Good luck with your search!

Hi @Dummy

The thing to bear in mind is that if you ‘bump’ a topic, it pushes it back to the top of the recent threads feed, and by definition pushes every other post down. If everyone did it then the forum would be a mess.

Not everyone is as sad as me and on the forum every day, so be patient and I’m sure someone will answer. If you’ve not heard anything in a week or two, there’s no harm in posting in the thread asking if anyone has any advice. Personally, and this is because I’m a grumpy old man, I dislike people just writing ‘bump’ in a thread. It just seems lazy to me 😉.

Hi, welcome to SGL :smile:

As they say, patience is a virtue. Some parts of the site are busier than others. Also some people will read a topic but not be able to help. Eventually someone with the right knowledge will be along and hopefully answer your question.

Bumping is poor forum etiquette and best avoided.

Well I recognize the name SVBONY from when I purchased a tripod adapter for my 15X70. I didn't know they make binoculars too. Anyway I already have a 10x50 pair (Olympus DPSi) which I got as a gift and what spurred me to upgrade to a 15x70. I guess I'll have to wait a while with my upgrade. Thanks though!

And about the other issue, good to know, hope it wasn't wrong of me to ask about it here in a new topic. Thanks for the clarification 😁

Hello and welcome to the site 👍 I wouldn't get stressed over people viewing but not commenting; like me, people look but if they can't help they move on and hopefully someone will be along to help. I have found this is to be a very helpful and knowledgeable site and if people can help, they will be more than happy too.
