Tried them on a full Moon with good clear results. Stars seemed bright but I found some of the suburbia street lighting becoming a nuisance. No reflection on these binoculars though. For the money I paid, with good multi coatings, and Bak 4's, they did extremely well.

To continue this new entry, I was pleasantly suprised at both build and optical quality for such a small price. Daytime images are clearer than my cheap Bak 7 binos, and they feel light enough for long astronomy use. Very suprised to see no other Opticron binos in this review as the quality seems very high. As grab and go binos with the standard min specs for well made products, these can be recommended. The close up views are sharp. Still to test at night but its looking good.
