Best value compact binoculars for viewing Alaskan wildlife

Postby cruiser on Sun Jun 19, 2005 4:59 am

I just booked a cruise to Alaska and need a pair of good binoculars for viewing birds and wildlife from the ship. We also will be touring Denali, etc. on bus and train. I am looking for reasonably priced (my budget is tapped out) binoculars. They need to be small, so I don't get tired of hauling them with me everywhere I go. I also wear glasses/contact lenses, progressive bifocals to be exact, and have never had very good luck in focussing binoculars. I also understand the weather will be rainy and misty. What do you suggest?

You can get compact 8X Minox binos for less than $200.00. They will fold up and fit into your pocket.
