Excellent binoculars at this price. Great eye relief (19mm) for glasses wearers to consider.

This is an extremely good quality bino at this price. These are not entry level and work well in all conditions. Thanks for posting, I grabbed a second set to leave in the truck.

My wife wants to join me when I'm doing bird photography. Will this be at least equivalent to my crop sensor mirrorless camera with 210 mm lens?

i purchased some $20 binoculars but they don't see too far. I am trying to get a closer look at the moon and stars. Which one should I get? I have no clue about these things. thanks.
What did you buy?
I don't want to pay $100 to look at moon and stars. I was thinking of grabbing a Celestron .
For example https://www.amazon.com/Celestron-...B00DV6SI3Q 7x50. More light than 8x42 and the ruby coating doesn't really help in fact it might invite more reflection according to reviews? I am no pro by any means so would love to get some feedback and suggestions here.

Ya, check out the Celestron brand. You will need a higher diameter to capture more light. Add tripod!
Quote from CMW71
:
Celestron 25x70 those are good for that
How about this
https://www.amazon.com/Celestron-...006ZN53FS/
20x50 definitely needs tripod, which I have. This can help us see moon much better, right?

Does field of view vary so much across these?

The vortex binos posted last week are better regardless of the garbage combo set which I threw in the trash.
It's not even close. The Legend M have the same ED glass, and those are generally in the same category as the vortex viper, which are two lines better than the crossfire. I have a pair of vortex diamondback, and I have no doubt that these would be much better.

Is this Bushnell set better than the Nikon's (currently in popular section)

Apologies I'm a noob and trying to make a first purchase of binos

Edit: to clarify my needs it's more like a nice to have and tinker around with. Trying to stay under $100 but would like a good set to checkout wildlife from the porch time to time. Rarely if ever probably take out on a hike

"ruby coated" binoculars are terrible for astronomy.

The red coating is only applied to hide the red fringe that appears around objects due to the poor optics.

If you ever find a $5 pair at a garage sale, strip the red coating from the lenses with MEK, and enjoy your red fringed view of the world.

A guy in our astronomy club has a pair B&L that he has stripped the red coatings from the left lens.

210mm on a crop sensor is roughly 300mm which equals 6x magnification. So with these binoculars (8x mag), your wife would get even greater zoom. There are binoculars with variable zoom if you want more flexibility, but generally they may not be as sharp. (Think prime lens vs zoom telephoto lens)
