Cheap n nasty.
Carry bag is next to useless.
Not very protective at all
Not as clear as your told they are
Feeling pretty well ripped off as my $60 pair do a much better job.
Keep searching for a better pair.
Wouldnt recommended for this price.
Cheap n nasty
And a even cheaper n nasty protective carry bag.

The first thing I would point out is that the 25 x magnification magnifies the slightest movement, so if you intend using them for astronomy for more than a couple of minutes you'll really need to mount them to a tripod. I've been using my camera tripod, and it's more than adequate
A tripod adaptor is included, it's plastic and reasonably sturdy, but for a more stable image it's worth buying a metal one, I bought a good solid one on here for £6 and it's much better.
I've been using the binoculars most evenings this week, Jupiter and its four main moons and Saturn and its rings are clearly visible through them. OK, they're binoculars, not the Hubble, and the aforementioned planets are only very small in the field of vision, but you can see them nonetheless. I think I was able to make out the stripes across Jupiter on a really clear night last week, but that may just have been wishful thinking on my part.
Naturally they can't match the image I obtain from my 4 "refractor telescope either, but they're much easier to set up and use and ideal for short viewing sessions when lugging out the telescope would be just too much hassle.
They're pretty good for terrestrial viewing too, but bear in mind the closest focusing distance is 75ft, ideal for planes overhead and ships at sea, but not for birds at the bottom of your garden unless your garden is 75ft long or more.
I like the look and feel of these binoculars, and I'm very pleased I bought them.
I shouldn't have bothered - very disappointed with them and even with a tripod it is not easy to focus as there is still some shake, just putting your eyes to the lenses. I see far more using the Olympus binoculars.
A mistake, just proving that even at my advancing years, we can still live and learn! Should have stuck with what I had.
The day they arrived, the previous few days of clear skies ended with total cloud cover and rain, but the following night I was able to take a look at Jupiter and see the four main moons, as clearly as hoped for. There was a near full moon and I was able to see the full disc of the moon filling my eyepiece, and some lovely views of craters especially along the terminator, then a look upwards to the stars, seeing hundreds of previously invisible stars.
The view is just as good as expected, and although the binos are light, its almost impossible to hold them steady, especially for looking at planets, and a tripod is definitely necessary. I used the included binocular mount to attach them to my camera tripod, its a decent tripod, which I weighted down, but I still got wobble from the lightest of touch when aiming and focusing. I am now looking for a stronger/heavier tripod.
The included case (no padding or zip), neck strap, and lens cloth are poor quality, presumably to keep the price down, I have replaced all with better stuff so I can look after the binos properly.
The front lens caps are ok, but the rear lens cap isnt fit for purpose, its a single cap covering both lenses and does not stay in place, for now Im using the nasty neck strap that came with the binos, tied on to hold the rear lens cap in place, until I find a better lens cap(s).
To sum up, the binoculars are excellent, the included extras are rubbish, but I think I got value for money.
