    wow, that's a great deal on those. I have a few pair(I like binos almost as much as I do flashlights) The pair I've been using the most lately are Leupold Wind River. Not really high end, but I like the glass. Very clear and little eye strain. I have another pair of compact binos I use in the woods. They're in the trunk of my car right now, so I'll have to look later for the name. They're pretty good as compact goes, but still not as good as full size in lowlight, but better than my eyes in low light hehe

    I also have the Leitz Trinovid in the 10x40 but mine are not the armored-they're in black leather-the 10x40B. I have always been tempted by the 12x50 Trinovid as well, but finding a pair for the price of less than a car can be difficult. The 10x40's, I think, are one of the most superb all purpose bino's I have ever owned. Whether you use them for hunting,bird watching, scenery or astronomy, they will always do the job just fine. The excellent construction,light weight, the lens clarity and brightness- it's second to none. I've taken mine all over the World over the years and they have Never let me down. Mine are also made in Portugal, and if there is even the most Miniscule differences between them and the German Trinovids, I have never been able to see one.

    I have a pair of Karl Ziess 8X30 for general viewing. Or if I want some really close-up viewing I have a pair of Celestron Skymaster 15X70. They may be fairly cheap, but the optics are absolutely superb!

    I've owned several different pairs of varying size and strength, but I keep going back to my favourites, a pair of Swarovski 8x20 Compact's that i've had for around 15 years. They just slip in a shirt pocket and are plenty good enough for my needs. The optics are superb.

    is what I usually have with me.........

    These are a set of 7X50 Zeiss Bridge Glasses that I have had for over forty years. I used them regularly when we were sailing, and they certainly look salty now. Despite the wear and tear of nearly constant use, they are in great shape and the optics are very sharp and crystal clear. They are excellent night glasses. The one drawback is that they weigh 2.5 pounds, which is a bit over 1 Kilo, so they get pretty heavy after a while. And they are a little bulky for the opera. Dwight
