    Cons: At this price very difficult to think of a ‘con’. But at around 20% of the cost of top 8x42 bins they’re not the last word in optical perfection of course, but who cares?

    Pros: Lovely bright wide image, great close focus and ergonomically good in the hand. Almost faultless as all round budget binoculars and light enough to travel well, leave your really posh bins at home. I say try them, the 6x32 model is the ultimate travel binocular however, they go everywhere with us.

    Summary: They are good enough to be your only binoculars on a budget certainly, otherwise perfect for travel or check out the 6x32 model. Enjoy

    Cons: Very comfortable to look through-crisp bright views. Compact. I think not too much CA.

    Pros: Spiking on streetlights at night, however not on bright stars nor planets

    Summary: Good value for the money
