From Jim in Minnesota:
A gift to astronomers
The are some of the finest binoculars for wide field astronomy made at any price. The fact that you can buy them at such a reasonable price is kind of amazing.
While some may never adjust to individual focus, they are a no compromise method for astro use on a tripod. I have easily seen the North America Nebula (NGC 7000) in Cygnus under dark skies. The moon is spectacular in its detail, and the list goes on. Color rendition is true and great, and stars are points of light clear to the edge of the field.
Don't hesitate on these if you want great binoculars for astronomy that can also be hand held.
