Strathspey branded 25x100mm giant binoculars. I bought these new about 2 years ago and since then, they have only ever had light useage. These are best suited to astronomy although obviously they can be used for other observations. Lots of serious astro observing can be done with these and the ONLY reason I'm selling them is because of an upcoming house move and I already have too much stuff!
There are lots of advantages of using bino's for astronomy (I also use a telescope). One main reason is that everything is correctly orientated and believe me, if You're new to the hobby then this assists greatly to find Your way around the night sky. Lots of newbies to the hobby also wrongly believe that magnification is everything. (It's a huge topic that I won't go too deeply into). At 25X(i.e these bino's), the Moon is simply mesmerising and will amuse You for hours! Other examples are that the Pleiades star cluster just fills the view and is equally amazing, You will easily see the moons of Jupiter and lots more detail in deep sky targets too much to mention! Also, these are very quick to set up.
In short, these are a wonderful tool to add to Your optical armoury and will serve You well for many years with bright, sharp views.
The Strathspey brand are highly regarded in the astronomy world and this device is no exception. It uses individual eyepiece focussing and is of a metal construction in an attractive matte-black.

I have marked these binos up as 'used' however, they are like new condition. They do and will come with a foam padded hard case. A new pair will cost £269 pre VAT and more like £320 to the public. Buyer will pay the postage (I'll be using Parcelforce 24). The photos displayed are my ACTUAL binos which I'm selling.
