LightWing 42mm ED HR
Thursday, 24 May 2018  | 

I find these remarkable value for money - very sharp and contrasty across approximately 90% of the field of view. No stray light issues, and great build quality. The sharpness is such that you can see stars at the edge of visibility popping through behind the brighter stars giving plenty of depth to the observing experience. I also really like the captive lens caps. I know you can buy binoculars costing many times more than these, but I can't imagine they would be a significant improvement. I won't be replacing mine, these are all the 8x42's I need
