<strong>Binoculars for Astronomy</strong>
Binoculars for Astronomy
Below you will find a selection of our most popular choices for Astronomical use and ones that come highly recommended by SBTC. Binoculars are a great way to get started in Astronomy and will always be an essential part of your kit. A 10x50 or 7x50 Binocular is Great for hand held scouting around the sky, giving widefield views of the night sky especially from that dark site. It is important that the Binoculars have a good Exit Pupil size which is given by dividing the Objective lend diameter by the magnification.
Therefore a 10x50 or a 7x50 binocular would be great.
Binoculars are a no fuss and very handy way to view the night sky and in certain instances can be better than a telescope. Binoculars can be taken anywhere including on holiday when a telescope may have to be left at home.
Most models can be tripod mounted for extra steadiness and larger Observation Binoculars will need to be permanently tripod mounted.
Porro prism or ZCF Shaped binoculars will be more comfortable to hold for long periods whilst looking skywards as the hand wraps around the body in a way which ensures a good stance.
If you wear spectacles then most Binoculars these days cater for this with fold down or twist up eyepiece cups.
You can choose the best sizes from the models below or see our main Binoculars sections for a wider range.
