    Unsure of utility, spotty quality

    I am an astronomy buff and generally agree that binoculars are far more useful to novices and than a single eyepiece telescope. Celestron and Meade have the best mainstream brand reputation, but this set of binoculars we ordered had misaligned optics (sharp in one, unfocused in the other, or vice versa). These are also rather heavy and difficult to hold steady - I wonder if an even lighter, simpler set of binoculars would be better for most basic functions (looking at the moon, meteor showers, planets, etc.)

    Very good, high quality binoculars that are perfect for looking at the moon and planets. Much more practical than a telescope and with some help, good for the kids too. I use them a bit for bird watching as well, but naturally they are a bit heavy for longer term use. For the price, you will have a hard time finding anything better than these.

    Being able to use both eyes makes this binocular easier to use than a telescope, especially for kids. The 15 power and 70mm objective gives large bright images. With the included tripod mount it is easier to use than most small telescopes. The low price is also a bonus.

    Great for bird watching or checking out the scenery. Not too sure about seeing the moon or beyond, though.

    This was an anniversary present for my husband. He likes them very much. I find that they are heavy but he doesn't seem to mind.

    Very pleased with the quality for a very low price. They are very large and heavy, so a tripod is a must.

    A little too powerful hence the connector for a tripod. Othwise excellent for sky gazing.
