For the price I got them, I think these are quite good. I looked at Jupiter today, and the image was nice...could resolve the planet's disc...though not much more given these are binoculars. Have peered at terrestial objects, and they focus quite well. Certainly, one can get better optics at much higher prices, but for the price point these things are, to me, the proverbial "steal." I was afraid to get a zoom because of quality control issues...and have been pleasantly surprised with the ones I got. Not a razor perfect focus at zoom, but, again, reasonable clarity for the price (I also just like the zoom's versatility). I am happy and appreciative. That said, others may have different standards, and/or receive less, or better quality versions. Re: weight...they can be held by me (normal size guy) for a fair amount of time...but one can get tired. A tripod would be nice for higher poer viewing. Happy Hunting.

Great Idea, but...

When not using the Zoom, these have a great view. When trying to zoom the image starts to seperate and my brain can't make them combine.

They are very heavy...Read complete review

When not using the Zoom, these have a great view. When trying to zoom the image starts to seperate and my brain can't make them combine.

They are very heavy to hold and if you try to zoom forget it, you can't hold them steady enough. (I knew they were heavy going into it.) Tripod time. As others have said, the mount is junk. Hayneedle has these as astronomical binoculars, so it should have a sturdy mount.) When looking at the moon, I could not get both eyes to focus crisp. For me, when the left eye is in focus, I would have to turn the right eye adjuster another 1/2 turn to focus. I bought these for astronomical use, so that's no good for me. If your eyes are better than mine, this may not be an issue at all!!

Another issue is when adjusting the right eye focus, you always throw off the left eye focus. There is play in the rig so when you are adjusting the right focus, you're moving the left eyepiece in and out. (The focus wheel is not moving during this.)

I might have given two stars if these hadn't been sold as astronomical binoculars.

Anyways, I will be returning these pretty soon and trying another brand.

          I've been into astronomy since I was a kid but unfortunately I have no room to put a telescope in my small condo. Therefore, I read reviews about these binoculars & decided to buy one. I am very satisfied how these binoculars turned out. Using the tripod adaptor, which came with the package, is very useful for a stable viewing of the clear night sky.
