After the sun goes down, the Remington 9x63's track the International Space Station well. It was fun to see Venus & brilliant ISS in the same binocular field! Later, when ISS enters the earth's shadow & rapidly fades away, the Remington's still show the ISS, even a faint trace of structure of the solar panels. Not as good as 20x80 binoculars, still, the Andromeda galaxy can be seen & open star clusters are nice handheld, even with lots of street & house lights glaring. It is sweet to track accidentally found dim satellites thru star fields.
Also, as evening fades to blackness, detail in darkening woods can still be made out. Holding the long 9x63 binoculars with your hands near the large lenses, one can get a steadier view than with most other non-stabilized binoculars. But have more fun with the Remington's on a tripod.
Pros: large multi coated lenses
Cons: too large & heavy for hikes...
Would recommend: Yes
