Hi folks....Complete newbie here.
I've been bit by the astronomy with binos bug,since getting a set of 30x80 Tenjin(Scokc) binoculars 2 months ago.I placed it on an Orion Tritech II tripod and had a blast......I then followed it up with a set of Opticron Adventurer T WP binoculars(12x50)
The thing is I'd love a set either the Orion Giant View Bt-82 binos,or the less pricey,but possibly as good(this is where you good folks come in.....I hope)
Sky Rover BT-82's that I see on AliExpress,for about $250 less than the Orions.
I have a wife acceptance factor situation to take into consideration and I am also wondering how good are the Sky Rover products as well as buying from China,which may necessitate a tariff.
One further thought on my part,was to go for something like the Oberwerk 20x65ED's and put them on the Oberwerk Monopod.....Less expensive and a pretty good fit in my stable.
Any helpful advice is greatly appreciated.
