The current offer of binoculars, available on the market is dominated by 842 and 1042 models; then come instruments with 832, 1032 and 1050 parameters. You don't have any problems with finding low light conditions 856 devices but they are rather available on the European market. In the US there is practically no night hunting so night vision binoculars are far less popular. Of course any 856 instrument can be also used for nighttime observations of the sky but, apparently, there are not enough astronomy fans in the USA to influence the producers and force them to offer a wider range of such models.

However, there is a class of binoculars which used to be very popular and nowadays they somehow have fallen by the wayside. I think here about 735 instruments. Have they been abandoned for a good reason? I don't think so. In the following article I am going to try and persuade you that it was a bad decision and also I am going to show you several examples of very well-put-together pairs of 735 binoculars that, despite many years behind the belt, can still compete on equal terms with contemporary products.
