My family has a rural bed and breakfast, with a 3+ acres of meadows and another 3+ acres of woods.
It is very popular with bird watchers, but it has been pointed out that it is very dark with good horizons, making it good for astronomy too.
We'd like to get some binoculars for our guests to use. Perhaps 2 pairs of 15x70's and 1 pair of 20x80 or larger.
Are the more expensive Oberweks any better than the others? I would have expected the Celestrons to cost more...
I'd appreciate any experiences you've had with these or similar. Thanks.
The inexpensive Chinese big binoculars have pretty much wiped out the medium priced versions, though I think Orion still carries some of these. Be sure to get proper mounts for these, as they all are too heavy and too high magnification to hand hold. Some sort of parallelogram mount is best. Unless you make them yourself, the mounts will cost more than the binoculars!
