Solidly built, but not perfect The construction of this bino is very solid. The weight is not too much for hand-holding. The shaking caused by high magnification is not too much for hand-holding, but to get good sharp views, you need something like a tree or fence to support it. With the back of a chair to rest it on, you can see the 4 big moons of jupiter. They’re like little points of light on either side. There are only 2 flaws with this pentax. First, there seems to be chromatic abberation that makes the focus not as sharp as it should be. Maybe with this high magnification and larger lens it should be expected, but i would not be surprised if the oberwerk 20×60 for $120 has better sharpness. Secondly, the lens caps have to be pulled out for you to see, but their click-stop is too far away. As a result, 25% of the field of view is lost. Gone. Wasted. A crying shame. The designers really screwed up. This is the main reason i do not recommend buying this bino. I sent an email to Pentax and they…

Excellent astronomy binoculars I had been looking for binoculars for general use and astronomy. Look at a constellation with 10 stars to the naked eye and then there’s hundreds! The crispness of the image was stunning, in all conditions from dull to bright sunlight, with light transmission excellent and minimal obvious internal reflections even looking towards a source of light. These feel incredibly good in your hands. They have slight ergonomic depressions as though someone squeezed their hands into them so hard it left a slight imprint. The Pentax uses a flatter lens system which effectively makes all of the field of view you see very sharp.
