Too powerful for practical use. You need to use a tripod at this magnification. Everyone thinks zoom is a plus, but on binoculars it is just a gimmick. You would get a better quality image without it. When Leica charge 1500 pounds and more for binoculars, you get a superb image, but no zoom and much less magnification. They know what they are doing.

So would I be better of with my 10x50's then?

Yeah 10x50 are about the maximum you could use without a tripod unless you have extremely steady hands. 10x50 are ideal for bird watching and such like.

For star gazing, these + tripod are better & much easier to use than a £ 50-100 telescope.

Great for bird watching, especially on a Friday night when they're getting dressed up to go out 8).
#10
birdwatchers use 40s or 42s
astro work use 50mm
and no zoom hardly used in those fields
maybe for friday night work as mentioned, but you wont find these used by birders or astronuts.
Any good birding or astro site will have all the info you need on buying the right pair of bins for birding and astro work.

hope this helps

Does anyone know the dimensions of these?

For those that are into Bird watching, there are some lovely TlT's around my way (hey! it's a bird, don't sensor it :p).


Am I just pushing my luck? :D

Talk about moot point, £15 vs £1500+.

......................."Oh damn, these 15 quid jobbies from Lidl aren't quite as good as their price promised to be, I really wish I'd used the money towards those £1700 Leica Geovids, well C'est la vie"

I'm interested in the microscope set Lidl have for £49.99, but I'm concerned it won't be the same as a £100,000 electron microscope.

Forgive my sarcasm, it's christmas.

I've got the same ones but mine have a special Zoom out feature. Just look through them the wrong way round bazzinga!!
#15
I got a pair of the 10x50 and if you're really picky (you shouldn't be at the price) they do suffer from slight chromatic abberation.

Megotmail was just pointing out that even on the higher end binoculars there is no zoom function and lower magnification. He was pointing out that these are gimicks and potential flaws with the design. He wasnt making a comparison and saying go out and buy the 1500 quid ones. He was just pointing out that you maybe you shouldnt buy this product based on its features.

I totally agree that a zoom mechanism on binoculars is not good and although some may say I'm stupid I didn't think for a second he was suggesting people buy £1500 glasses, but my point is sound, albeit sarcastically sound that spending £15 in lidl, you're either going to be pleasantly surprised by a bargain or disappointed which in retrospect considering the price may not be surprising or that big of a loss. No one in their right mind should/would be expecting too much from them.
