This binocular is nearly everything the Zeiss Jena Jenoptem 7x50W was and then some in many ways. The coatings are excellent and the view is very sharp. They might be a bit big for some people and the eye cups are intended for use without eyeglasses, but these are really excellent binoculars. I would rate the coatings an 8.5 out of 10 vs the German Docter brand version of this same binocular that had coating that I rtated a 9.5 out of 10, but the Docter model has a price about 6x as high. If you really want a 7x50 binocular for stargazing or general viewing and you can handle a larger binocular like the Zeiss (Oberkochen) 7x50 Classic or the Nikon Prostar, then this is an excellent value with sharp optics.
Pros: great handling, huge eye lenses, very sharp image
Cons: large binocular, covers take a bit of getting used to...
Would recommend: Yes
