there is a difference of about 100$, is it worth it?
are orion's optics better than celestron's?
or should i just get the celestron and get this over with?

It's a bit early to be able to review them myself due to weather, but they seem handholdable with a little support which is exactly what I wanted; tripods can be faffy when you just want a quick 10 minute scan of the sky.
I would have gone for the Oberwerks if they were more readily available in the UK, but the Japanese product looks very well made, and I like the monocoque design of the binos - they look very sturdy
