I purchased these as a demo pair from Optics Planet. They live up to the stated specs. Quality is good; collimation is perfect; the tripod adapter and bracing rod are solid (more so than a Barska); and the views are excellent! I use these more than my 90mm or 102mm refractors, and they can be used handheld (although not recommended) for short periods of time. Very, very nice for the price.
