These high quality, lightweight binoculars by AstroNZ are ideal for exploring the night sky or land based objects.
They can be used for general purpose use on land, to help locate objects when working with a telescope, and for astronomy beginners who want to find their way around the night sky.
The 50mm optics and anti-reflection coatings give you a bright, wide field of view for stargazing. Focussing is simple and precise with the central ‘slow focus’ mechanism.
The 10x magnification is about as much as you want for hand-held use for astronomy. Higher magnifications usually require a sturdy base such as a tripod.
These 10x50mm Premium Binoculars use porro prisms, which are better than roof prisms for astronomical observing because of of their greater light transmission. The prisms are made of BAK4 glass, which is higher quality than the borosilicate flint glass used in cheaper binoculars.
