Well I received the Bino as per eBay link in post #5 above and was pleasantly surprised to see that it not only came with two Barlows, but it also cam equipped with two eyepieces. Not sure what focal length they are. The binos are good sturdy construction. The eyepiece grips are those full ring grip types (no screw), so cannot really use eyepieces with those slots in them, they need to be flat for the bino to grip them well.
Anyways I took out the 12" newt and found I had to use the 1.85 Barlow with the Bino to achieve focus. Trained in on Jupiter and Saturn and I was very happy with the view - the two planets looked great.
Comparing to my 7-21 zoom, the immediate noticeable thing was the bino had a much blacker background looking at Jupiter, the zoom had a fairly grayish background ( it is a cheap zoom after all).
I did not notice any ghosting. Looking at stars they were the single "dots" you would expect. You could clearly see bands on Jupiter and the moons were very clear.
So for $270 Australian, I am very happy.
