Quote:Quote:Firstly, if the binocular in high quality ....Nice, but is there a high quality model you could recommend for me in this format ?Please, some model available to buy, avoid talking about collectible binoculars that I need to hang for months on auction sites to get.Quote:As an example of Pentax 20x60 PCF WPII The 60mm objective deliver more light and more image resolution for these magnifications, there are excellent choices in the 60mm objective and 20+ magnificationBut, at 20x magnification, and 50mm objective, what is the possible niche ?
Quote:I mean, what's the point of the 20x50 format, looks smaller exit pupils for astronomy use, too high magnification for terrestrial views handheld (please exclude from this topic discussion about image stabilized models).
First and foremost observing love: naked eye.

Quote: They still seem fairly specialized to me, though. If I'm going to view at 2.5-mm exit pupils or smaller, I'd rather use a telescope.
Quote: I think the question here is this:To provide acceptable views, 20x binoculars need to be tripod mounted. If you are going to trouble of dealing with a tripod and all, why use 20x50s rather than something larger?Jon
I don't believe in astrology. I am a Gemini and we're very skeptical.
Quote:Companies keep delivering this format to market so it should have a definite use.The only I see is to watch nearby bird nests, tripod mounted, in daytime, due to the, relatively, short focusing distance for the magnification.Any more ideas ?
