The binoculars include 15x magnification and 70mm objective lenses that provide a sharp, wide-field view of the sky along with the chance to see deep-sky objects. You can repurpose the binocular during the day for birdwatching or other bright-sky pursuits, too.
We'd recommend using a tripod to reduce the shakes. A tripod adapter does come with the binocular. Paired with the BaK-4 prisms you will get a nice, sharp view of whatever you are looking at. Rubber housing and the water-resistant construction will let you use the binoculars even if it's slightly wet out.
