Description:Absolutely First-class optics that seem to give a three-dimensional, "you are there" view of the heavens. Everyone who looks through them is rendered speechless. Extremely sharp star images right out to the periphery.

Completely fog-proof and waterproof - I've used mine in damp winter temperatures as low as minus-25 without problems.

Only thing to criticize are the lack of a tripod socket, and also a bit on the heavy side. Expensive, although built like a tank. You'll leave these binouculars to your grandchildren in your will.

You'll never regret purchasing these binoculars. You have not looked through binoculars until you have looked at the sky through Leica binoculars! Almost a religious experience!

Every time I have the chance to compare similar binoculars the results are the same - the Leitz Trino's are waaay better than the others. In fact, I have a similar pair of Zeiss miniature roof prism types that also are a pleasure to look through, but are not quite up to the Leitz in overall optical quality. My eyes are very sensitive to collimation and power matching of the barrels, and I usually get a severe headache after only a couple minutes using nearly any of the inexpensive binoc's of the Swift/Bushnell/Tasco variety. The little Leitz, however, is relaxing to my eyes, a pleasure to use and with a field that is surprisingly flat, well-corrected and with minimal softness at the periphery. Truly an example of how much small roof prism types have evolved since the 40's.
