The current offer of binoculars, available on the market is dominated by 8×42 and 10×42 models; then come instruments with 8×32, 10×32 and 10×50 parameters. You don't have any problems with finding low light conditions 8×56 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 8×56 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 7×35 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 7×35 binoculars that, despite many years behind the belt, can still compete on equal terms with contemporary products.
