Helios Stellar II 15x70 Binoculars
Wednesday, 1 July 2020 | John
Powerful pair of binoculars, certainly powerful enough for my needs, I bought them for terrestrial uses such as long distance bird and nature watching and to view hills and sea views.
I've looked at the moon and the view is really clear and stunning, stars are pinpoint clear as well, hadn't realised just how many stars were up there but I really don't now one star from another.
These binoculars let in a lot of light, even at dusk they work really well.
The clarity of the optics are very good, they have pinpoint focus although the IF focussing without a centre wheel focus does take a wee bit to get used to but you soon get the hang if it..no issue with that double image thing that some binoculars have, they have perfect alignment.
For the price I think they are great, without paying 5 times more I consider the quality of their lenses very very good. The Build quality is excellent and they seem quite sturdy and with their rubberised coating are easy to grip and use, they are easy to use handheld or by cleaning against a car or wall...that said I'm buying a used tripod for the longer range stuff.
If your seeking a pair of honest good quality binoculars at a decent price I'd have no trouble in reccomending these 15x70s binos.
Most impressed as were my mates who've seen and tried them.
