help to choice Astronomy Binoculars

Postby erbrmn on Tue Mar 17, 2009 7:36 pm

Hi all

I need help to buy Astronomy binoculars. I am planning to use it to show moon and stars for tourists in Mongolia which is one of the most wonderful place.

I am interested in this Astronomy binoculars "Celestron 25x100 Skymaster Giant Astronomy Binoculars Waterpoof w/ Tripod adapter, case, 71017 w/ FREE UPS".

My budget is 300$

Is it OK or have you any idea ?

Thank you for advice.

It is again me.

I wrote that budget is 300$, but budget is not important.

Yes, that is certainly a good choice, BUT you must also be ready to pay for a tripod heavy enough to support a 25x100. On any 25x100, the minimum I would recommend is the Zhumell Heavy Duty, or the Bogen 055X, 128RC Anything less is a serious mistake on a 25x100.
