Purchasing was easy shipping was fast and no damage at all. The glasses where fantastic not a five cause weight is heavy for my old hand but the come with tripod adapter I bought two.
This is a terrific buy. I can't comment on the durability of this binocular, but it is a joy to use at this time. Feels rugged and the optics are superb.
I live in a very light polluted city, the only way I can browse the stars is to use these binoculars otherwise I'm nearly completely blocked off from the sky. These binoculars brought back my love for astronomy :) the customer service was great and gave me back a very quick response. The first night I tested this out on Jupiter and Saturn, Jupiter looked like a bright star while Saturn you could actually notice the rings, this pair is best for stargazing, viewing nebula and star clusters. When I received this product the velcrow in the back came pre ripped out and soon after one of the zippers ripped right off but we didn't buy the binoculars for the bag.
I recently became involved in astronomy, starting on 10X50 binoculars. I have since acquired 3 telescopes, 76mm, 80mm and 203mm. I use binoculars for quick observing sessions where setting up a telescope would be inconvenient. I also take binoculars for star gazing when I travel where taking a telescope would be inconvenient or impossible. The Skymaster 15X70s are very comfortable to use and very bright with good optics. The surface has a nice feel and the focuser works smoothly. I have used them to view the Andromeda Galaxy and a variety of double stars. The moon looks spectacular in these. I used them during the recent Lunar eclipse. I have not used them for planets yet. They can be hand held for short periods but at 15X any sort of hand shake is very noticeable. The included tripod adapter works well for putting them on a camera monpod or tripod to eliminate the shake. I like them and would recommend them to a friend.
