Our favorites: Trophy Xtreme 8x56 (opens in new tab)

Price: $199.99 | Objective: 56mm | Magnification: 8x | Field of view: 5.71° | Length: 10in/ 254mm | Weight: 38oz/ 1079g.

The Bushnell Trophy Xtreme 8x56 binoculars are a solid choice for any stargazer out there. They offer a moderate angle of view and large objectives to gather as much light as possible. They can also be mounted to a tripod for a more comfortable viewing experience, to help with the weight of the binoculars. 

Optics are multicoated throughout, the roof prism is a Bak-4 design, and nitrogen purging means they won’t fog up. The rest of the Trophy range includes 10x50, 10x42 and 8x32 pairs, but none are as well adapted to low light as these 8x56 binoculars with their enormous 7mm exit pupil.

The solid rubberized coating on the outside gives them a rugged feel, meaning it won’t be easy for fingers to slip off them, the Trophy Xtreme binoculars are also IP7 waterproof, so rain showers will be no problem.

Engage binoculars deals

Bushnell's Engage 10X50

Our favorites: Engage 10X50 (opens in new tab)

Price: $374.99 | Objective: 50mm | Magnification: 10x | Field of view: 6.45° | Length: 6.5in/ 165mm | Weight: 29.2oz/ 828g.

A great all-round pair with the large objectives stargazers look for, Bushnell’s Engage binoculars feature a phase-coated roof prism design with fully multicoated optics, some extra-low dispersion glass, and water, oil and fog-repellent coatings on the outer lenses to prevent any build-up that might spoil the view.

A magnesium body with a rugged rubber coating sheds some weight, but glass will always be heavy, and at just under a kilogram night-time users might want to take advantage of the tripod-mounting socket for extra support. 

The Engage EDX binoculars are exceptional value for money as they come with features and specs that you could expect to see on models costing a lot more. They're also available in 8x42, 10,42 and 12x50.

PowerView 2 binoculars deals

Our favorites:  PowerView 2 10x50 (opens in new tab)  (opens in new tab)

Price: $59.99 | Objective: 50mm | Magnification: 10x | Length: 6.7in/ 170mm | Weight: 27.8oz/ 790g.

Available as 10x50, 10x25, 10x42, 12x50, 16x32 and a mighty 20x50, the PowerView 2 range is the low-budget option from Bushnell. Yes, the magnification and apertures on these models are fairly impressive, but you won't find any of Bushnell's specialities like extra-low dispersion glass, phase-coated prisms or waterproofing features.

If you're in the market for a pair of budget binoculars that will still do the job, this could be the pair for you. Normally priced around the $60/$70 mark, they're great for carrying around on the go and if you're trying to get a budding stargazer into astronomy, these could be ideal. 

At least they're not too heavy, so you shouldn't need to buy a tripod with these. They'd make a good gift for a young stargazer, who's just becoming interested in the night-sky. If this is the case, you may also want to take a look at our round-up of the best binoculars for kids and best telescopes for kids, which contain plenty of further suggestions.

Legacy WP binoculars deals

Bushnell's Legacy WP 10X50

Our favorites: Legacy WP 10X50 (opens in new tab)

Price: $104.99 | Objective: 50mm | Magnification: 10x | Field of view: 6.5° | Length: not given | Weight: 30.5lbs/865g.

Absolutely excellent for the price, you get waterproof construction and multiple layers of anti-reflective coatings for a bright and high-contrast view of the Moon or Orion’s belt. 

The Legacy range of binoculars comprises just two pairs, the plain old 10x50s and a very interesting, and unusual, pair of zoom binoculars, which retain 10x50 as their starting point but zoom in to 22x50. This latter focal ratio may be too dim for serious astro use, and certainly won’t be the easiest to hold steady (luckily there's a tripod mount) but makes them superbly versatile as a general-purpose pair, wildlife spotting during the day and stargazing at night.

Otherwise, the Legacy binoculars are built to Bushnell’s usual high standards, with a porro prism design and Bak-4 glass. There's decent eye-relief, too, at 18mm, which will attract spectacle-wearers.

H20 binoculars deals

Bushnell's H20 7X50

(Image credit: Bushnell's)

Our favorites: H20 7X50 (opens in new tab)

Price: $99.99 | Objective: 50mm | Magnification: 7x | Field of view: 5.9° | Length: 6.6 in/ 167mm | Weight: 37.5oz/ 1063g.

A broader field of view with 50mm objectives to gather the light, these could be just what stargazers are looking for. 

Made from aluminum and an unusual blue color, these porro-prism binoculars are from the less-premium end of Bushnell’s range, so despite being waterproof they boast Bak-4 prisms and not much else. 

That’s not to say they’re not impeccably well made, as is the Bushnell’s way. The optics are nitrogen-purged to prevent fogging, and glasses-wearers will be pleased to note the absolutely enormous 27mm of eye-relief. What you don’t get are fancy lens coatings or ED glass, which is a shame but understandable, given the price point.
