Considering it's affordable price the Helios Mistral WP6 8x42 is a remarkably competent binocular for both birdwatching & general observing.
Phase-coated high-index, silver-coated BaK-4 prisms and fully multi-coated lenses with ED glass provide bright high contrast views.
Other features include modern, ergonomic, top hinge design constructed from lightweight but robust polycarbonate and finished with green rubber armour.

It has been a while since i upgraded my binoculars so many to choose from, basically wanted a pair for star watching and general. I didn't want a pair to powerfull. But had good optics and a reasonable price the Helios came out on top, great price really good optics phase corrected silver coated prisms ED glass brilliant, they are the one's for me, so ordered them on the 1/4/21 got a delivery date 6/4/21 low and behold got a knock at the door on the 3/4/21 the binoculars had arrived early Thanks to the staff at FLO i am a very happy customer and a proud owner of a great pair of binoculars that are really good for sky watching Thanks again FLO.

These are our first binoculars but I did a lot of research before buying to get the best balance between budget/aperture/weight/magnification. We wanted a pair mostly for astronomy (so one can look with them while the other is with the telescope) but also to be able to peek at birds in the garden or out on a day trip. They are perfect for the job and easy to handle. Although not the biggest aperture they are really helpful for a quick gaze at the stars and the moon (magnificent) before the clouds come when you don't want to get the scope out. We're quite happy with 8x magnification too, don't get dizzy with that. We've found them particularly useful to practise finding things before trying with our Dob too. Colours are good during the day and can see insects buzzing around at the end of the garden. Highly recommend.

This is my first set of this style of binoculars and totally amazed at the quality, optics are very clean and Bright and the sharpness is great apart from the outer edges but hardly noticeable so no problem for me. There quite light too feel good in your hands as there fairly small. Great price great product. Super happy.

Very happy with these, they are comfortable and secure in the hand and are a good balance between physical size and magnification/lens size. And for the price they are an awesome package.
