Really impressed at the magnification and weight of these binoculars. For the price you get awesome 'bang for your buck'. They are very light considering their size and the magnification is very high and clear. I didn't purchase them for hunting but having now purchased and used them, I think they're viable hunting binos; based on spotting distance and weight. They are bulky but the pros outweigh the cons imho. Viewing full moon was impressive but not sure about other astronomical objects. The viewing in low light at dusk and dawn is pretty good. I'm very happy with my purchase.
