These binoculars give a magnification of 20 times the original view. The lenses on these binoculars are 80 mm which is 3.1 inches diameter. These are great in dim light because they gather you about a 250% increase in light compared to a 10X50 pair of binoculars. This is a large pair of binoculars. It is too heavy to be hand held except for short periods. There is a large, sturdy bracket for use with your standard photo tripod.

These binoculars have a center focus as shown above plus adjustments on the right lens to allow you to adjust for differences between our eyes. With such a large objective (main lens), you get very bright images for dim light conditions.

With these powerful binoculars, you can view details for nature watching to bring animals and birds up close. For astronomy there are a lot of things you can see including four moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, and craters on the moon. A large number of galaxies, nebula, and star clusters are well within the range of these.

Shipping on this item within the CONUS (lower 48 states) is by UPS ground. Remember that these are fairly heavy. Foreign shipping or shipping to Alaska or Hawaii would be expensive.
