Celestron Regal LS 10x50 vs 10x42

Postby carlt on Thu Jun 02, 2005 5:18 am

Does anyone have an opinion on what would be the better buy between a pair Celestron Regal LS 10x50 and 10x42 or recomend if there's something else that would be better for the money?
The specs for the10x50's can be found here
athough the cheapest Iv'e found are here.
For some reason the 10x50's seem to be out of stock at most places.
The specs for the 10x42's can be found here
and the chapest I've found them here.
Anyone know how the LX line compares with the LS?

In a quality bino like the Regal, a 10x42 will do anything you need to do during daylight hours and right into total darkness. Unless your interests are astronomy or after dark surveillance, the extra cost and weight of the 10x50 is probably not worth it.
