what kind of binocular to buy

Postby Mike on Sat Nov 22, 2003 11:01 pm

I am a novice when it comes to knowing what kind of binocular to buy. I do not know what all the power designations mean, such as 10x42 etc. How can I be enlightened so as to make a proper decision about what to order. Any help you can offer would be greatly apprediated.

Yours truly,

Mike
