Action 16x50 Binocular

1.very well weight balance. Do not feel heavy at all.2.very short nearest focus distance, surprisingly.3.very wide angle at this 16x power range.4.mechanically very well fit to my hands this price, I can not say anything negative at all.2.if want water-proof, just add another $100 more to get an ATB model.3.although not perfect for lunar observation, it is very acceptable

Action 16x50 Binocular


I used this binocular for astronomy & for bird watching. I mounted it on a tripod for stargazing, & I used a monopod for watching birds. The brightness, clarity & sharpness is excellent. It is handholdable for brief periods of time. It is not too heavy...

Aspherical eyepiece lenses & BAK4 prisms. Comes with all needed accessories including tripod adapter. The case can be fastened onto a pants belt which makes it very handy for storing small items

Not fogproof or waterproof. Needs a monopod or a tripod for extended viewing. Not good for lunar observation
