I have a Oberwerk 20x80 ED binoculars that I use with the support of a tripod.
I would be interested in purchasing a smaller and lighter binoculars to be combined with the 20x80 for astronomical and even naturalistic use (trekking, birdwatching).
I would therefore need a good lightweight, easily portable binocular that can be used for manual stargazing.
Which should be combined with a 20x80 for astronomical use, to have a complementary instrumentation? 8x42 or 10x50 (or others combinations like 7x50 and so on)?
I guess it would be important to have a good field of view (the 20x80 is a bit narrow), but at the same time i'd like to have a decent aperture.
Which binoculars would you recommend, in the range of $ 150, to pair with 20x80 for manual stargazing? (since I already have a tripod, i could use this light binoculars on a stable support - when needed, for a more stable vision - but I would like to use it mainly by hand)
