80mm - 90mm Binoculars

Celestron 20x80 Binoculars

Dec 28 2009 07:30 AM | pogobbler in 80mm - 90mm Binoculars

The binoculars arrived well packed and I was impressed by the size and quality of the case that came with them. I wouldn't toss it in a lake or run over it with a truck, but

KonusVue 20x80 Binoculars

I purchased the KonusVue 20x80 binoculars about 6 months ago on a whim and with very little research done. I wanted something lightweight, very portable that I could

As you'd expect, these are a tad heavy for handheld use, and the 20x magnification makes it a challenge to get a steady view that way, in any case. But, while a standard

I'm fairly new to astronomy, but 15+ years as an avid amateur photographer possibly earns me a little bit of optics street cred

These two magnificent instruments have much more in common than they have different. Both are similar in size as evident in the picture, although the eyepieces stand about 5

When we talk about giant binoculars, we should not forget the old military binoculars which crop up occassionally on the used market. Several months ago I purchased one of the richest field military binoculars made. Here are the technical specs;

Beck Kassel (CBS) Tordalk 22x80 Binoculars

Mar 16 2005 09:46 AM | Guest in 80mm - 90mm Binoculars

These are older binoculars. Reportedly no longer manufactured as they were relatively expensive, but didn't have the following of a Zeiss. If you see a pair, they're worth a look. My normal-size pair are Orion 9x63 Mini Giants. Rock solid images and almost as light as 7x50s. The "Binocular Astronomy" exercises work perfectly with the 9x63s. (I also keep a pair of Bushnell 10x50's stuck under the front seat of the car. Useful safety item.) What the BK

Steiner 20 x 80 Binoculars

Mar 16 2005 09:07 AM | Guest in 80mm - 90mm Binoculars

I live on the west side of a large city in Indiana. I have observed through binoculars most of my life, and am recently becoming quite serious with astronomy. I purchased a pair of Steiner 20 X 80 binoculars (which I am subsequently returning). In daylight there was serious chromatic aberration, but what turned me off the most was the limited diopter adjustment on the right eyepiece. It would not turn as far as the left eyepiece diopter. I'm not sure if this was just a defect, but with the lack of chromatic aberration correction and obvious lack of quality control at the factory, I was very disappointed. I am mildly myopic (nearsighted), and have been elated with my other two Steiners (an 8 X
