Binoculars - 10x50 (Astronomy Grade)

Astronomy | Catalogue - Dec 2017

These lightweight, hand-hand binoculars are excellent for viewing the night sky or for land base objects. 

The quality 50mm optics and anti-reflection coatings give you a bright view with a wide field of view for stargazing. Focussing is easy and precise with the central 'slow focus' mechanism. 

The 10x magnification is about as much as you want for hand-held use for astronomy. Higher magnifications usually require a sturdy base such as a tripod. 

They use porro prisms, which are better than roof prisms for astronomical obseving because of of their greater light transmission. The prisms are made of BAK4 glass, which is higher quality than the borosilicate flint glass used in cheaper binoculars. 

You will need a standard L-shaped adaptor if you wish to use them on a tripod (optional extra).  


Recommended for 

General purpose use on land, to help locate objects when working with a telescope, and for astronomy beginners who want to find their way around the night sky.
