You must use a tripod for these binoculars, I use them for star gazing and it is next to impossible too see individual stars without a tripod. But when you can keep them steady you can see all the craters on the moon in great detail. I have used them for hunting as well when glassing an area from a prone position they are big and cumbersome, but the really shoe allot of detail.
Pros: Great magnification
Cons: needs better mount
