you really cant beat these binoculars for the money.i am satisfied with them based on how i am going to use them. the thing i am not satisfied about is that they do not draw in alot of light.they are a little dark compared to other optics but i guess you need to spend more money for a better pair to draw more light in.they seem very durable. they also dont fit in the storage pouch that came with them.

Nice size, lightweight, below average optics
I'm commenting on the 8x42's which I'm trying to get primarily for stargazing.
The real test of a binocular is how well it handles starlight and moonlight. These binoculars are NOT fully multi-coated - and the result is obvious when looking at the moon. The view is full of ghost images and blurs.
Now - on lower contrast images (at night), stars are fairly nice.
Only other negative is that the left ocular would not focus to my -4 diopter RX (right ocular could reach, but not the left ocular).
That's the bad side - otherwise - these are a very nice size and weight (I can hold them with one hand), and have a nice rubberized coating with occular caps (might be easy to lose) and attached objective caps (makes it easy to cover up the big lenses). At 8x42, they work well in daylight and dusk. At night, general star use (deep space objects - nebulas, star clusters, galaxies), these will probably fair well, but don't try the moon - you'll be quickly dissappointed. Bushnell figures you'll probably not use these for that purpose - so you could probably ignore my rants.
Oh, another plus - longer eye relief for eyeglass wearers. If you need to wear glasses - then I'd not hesitate to recommend these. The eye relief makes them worth the price.
