This binocular had excellent image quality and great build quality. The full multi-coating and blackened and baffled interior pretty much eliminate stray light. Stars are sharp and show plenty of color, and deep sky objects show reasonable definition. The eyepieces are comfortable to look through. Unfortunately, the 8x56 format has a couple of hindrances. First, it's heavy. Looking through it while standing can be a chore. You'd be better off sitting, leaning on something, or using a tripod. Second, the 5.8 FOV is narrow for astronomy uses. I've found double stars, but had a difficult time identifying it because there weren't enough stars around it. That made me miss my 7x35 with its 9 FOV. If you want a light binocular or use them for wide-field scanning, consider other models. If you don't mind the weight and do more targeted viewing, this Skymaster is an excellent choice.
