BBC Sky at Night Magazine Group Test Winner. The 15x70 version is one of the most popular models in the series. It offers serious large aperture light gathering in an affordable and reasonably lightweight configuration.
This is arguably the best available binocular for astronomical use that is light enough for hand holding for shorter periods, and still having a larger aperture. Easily tripod mounted for astro or terrestrial use on a standard photographic tripod with the suppied L adaptor. As a terrestrial binocular, it excels in low light. For birding at dawn or dusk, and for wader or gull roosts, this binocular removes the need for a spotting scope. The magnification is high enough to resolve detail and for species recognition in poor light, whilst retaining a bright image. An exit pupil of 4.67mm is ideal for providing the correct sized light cone for low light use maximising all the available incoming light. This binocular is lightweight enough to hand hold for this purpose, or can be mounted on any popular photo tripod.
