Nikon 7x50 Aculon A211 Binoculars Now 106.95 on B&H Photo

These binoculars pair relatively low magnifications with large objectives, meaning it works well in low-light conditions. Its rubber armor means it's durable and the BAK-4 Porro prisms mean it offers excellent optics. Better suited to viewing wildlife than stargazing.

Note: This was previously on sale for this price and it comes with a keychain flashlight worth $10.

Our favorites: Nikon WX 7x50 IF 

Price: $5,996.95 | Objective: 50mm | Magnification: 7x | Field of view: 10.7° | Length: 272mm | Weight: 2,420g.

A dedicated pair of astronomy binoculars, and just a little bit expensive, the Nikon WX is everything you could want for a night’s stargazing — though we’d prefer they be lighter.

That’s just not possible when you look at the design. An unusual Abbe-Koenig prism structure, three ED glass elements per tube, and a field-flattener lens system all add up. Luckily, there's a tripod mount.

The body is made of a magnesium alloy so it’s light but strong, and the combination of 50mm objectives and 7x magnification means images will be bright and contrasty. 

In terms of accessories, you do get a well built metal case for your money, which you'll want to help transport the high-quality binoculars you've invested in. These really do give you the ultimate viewing experience, except, of course, for their bigger brothers, the EX 10x50 IF, which retail for $300 more.

Our favorites: Nikon Aculon A211 10x50 

Price: $120 | Objective: 50mm | Magnification: 10x | Field of view: 6.5° | Length: 180mm | Weight: 899

Can you really get 50mm objectives for just over $100? It is possible, and while you shouldn’t expect exotic glass or special prisms (it’s a Porro), you do get multi-coated optics and a tripod mount. 

The Aculons aren’t even that heavy, tipping the scales at just less than a kilo, but being able to attach them to additional support is a big mark in their favor. On the outside, they’re nicely coated in rubber armor, and despite being some of the most ‘traditional’ looking binoculars in the Nikon range, this shape has long proved easy to keep a grip on.

The Aculon line of binoculars from Nikon aren't necessarily stargazing binoculars but because of their large objectives and moderate magnification, owners will find themselves looking up to the skies. These binoculars also work well in low-light conditions. 

Nikon Action EX

Our favorites: Nikon Action EX 12x50

Price: $190 | Objective: 50 mm| Magnification: 12x | Field of view: 5.5 degrees |  Length: 196mm| Weight: 1043.3 g

The 50mm aperture on the Nikon Action EX means that you should get plenty of light when you’re using these binoculars. Pack in some multi-coated lenses and high-refractive-index prisms and they’re even better, offering clear, crisp views of stars. When we tested them out, we did notice some slight curvature around the edge of the field of view, but overall we were impressed with these binos when considering the reasonable price.

They feel surprisingly rugged, too, with comfortable rubber grips and a large focus knob. Glasses wearers will be pleased with the eye relief, which is a generous 13mm. They promise to be fairly waterproof too and offer decent fog resistance. But all this comes with a price in the way of weight, as the 12x50 binos are slightly heavier than other models at 2.3lbs. As such, you may want to invest in a tripod to avoid shakiness when using these optics.
