Like some other reviewers, I bought these after reading Steve Tonkin's detailed review. They are the first pair I have ever purchased and I could not be happier with them. They are comfortable to hold, easy to adjust and their image is bright and sharp. The large eye relief and small minimum IPD also make for comfortable viewing. As a beginner (who so far has used them for bird watching, viewing distant terrestrial objects and looking at the moon, the combination of 10x magnification and 50mm lenses seems ideal. Distance objects are brought out in good detail -- the shape of a ship that was lying most of the way to the horizon (from 200m above sea level) and looked like half an en dash with the naked eye could be seen clearly -- and the field of view is such that locating and tracking moving objects is a cinch. The performance of these binoculars seems to be on par with much more expensive alternatives. My only (and minor) concern is with the soft case. It's flap has a velcro fastening and it doesn't strike me as being particularly secure or long-lasting. Final point: Living in NZ I was a bit concerned about how such a product would cope with being shipped halfway around the world. While a couple of significant dents in the outer packaging gave me some anxious moments, the binoculars and the box they came in were both fine.

Bought these after reading Steve Tonkin's review, as well as many, many others... I spent so much time trying to decide on what I wanted and was so happy to receive these and finally get a decent view of the night sky.
The moon looks amazing through them, and I have seen Pleiades for the first time ever which was such a treat on a moonless night. I do need to get a tripod/parallelogram mount as I can't see stars clearly enough due to the shake of my hands.
Overall I'm pleased with this purchase and will hopefully get the chance to update this review when I have my mount.

I bought these binoculars after reading Steve Tonkin's review of them and they certainly live up to his recommendation. Superb views of the night sky and very comfortable to use. Also, as usual, exceptional service from FLO.. Thanks!
Great value for money in my opinion.

Superb binocular at this price point, with fully multicoated lenses and BAK 4 prisms. Lightweight but sturdy construction. Very sharp optics at centre of field. There is some significant but symmetrical optical aberration at the periphery but not really noticeable with eyes correctly positioned, and I suspect you would have to spend a lot more money to avoid this!

These binoculars are fantastic quality, sturdy, light and very nice in the hand.
The optics are beautifully bright and pin sharp, the Pleiades and Orion nebula especially look fantastic. Andromeda's ghostly smudge is easy to locate with the 50mm objectives gathering enough light to make this task all the easier. The beehive cluster, and M13 in Hercules jump out with a surprising wow factor. I'm very pleased with these binoculars.
The reason I've deducted a star in my rating is because yet again, manufacturers cannot seem to make lens caps fit properly. The diopter caps simply fall off if you turn the binos upside down - they're not even close to fitting correctly.. They more or less just balance on the top. I feel its such a simple thing to get right on such great optics, so feel wholeheartedly that they deserve to have a star deducted for this.
