These were made in the 1980s in Japan and feature a high build quality. Has BAK4 prisms & excellent coatings. Optics are sharp and in immaculate condition inside and out. Collimation is spot on perfect. Center focuser is smooth & accurate, and diopter is smooth & holds its setting well. There is a threaded tripod socket under the screw off end cap. Rubber coating is of an excellent caliber. Weighs 85 ounces and if you are strong of arm and shoulder you can hand hold these for brief moments. Close focusing is about 120 feet. Eye relief is about 11mm and I don't recommend this instrument for those who must wear eyeglasses when viewing through binoculars. The center focusing makes this instrument ideal for birding and long range observation by day and astronomy by night. This binocular is in pristine condition and was rarely used and always stored inside in its hardshell carry case. Includes all four lens caps. There are many 20x80 binoculars on the market but this is the finest pair I have seen and on a par with the excellent Steiner 20x80. I'm confident the new owner will be delighted and offer a 60 day return privilege if not 100% satisfied. Shipping is $20.00 in the U.S.A.
