Fuji 16x70FMT-SX Polaris Binos
 
I have had them for 4 years and they are still my favorites (I have several other brands/versions). I also have the 7x50 in the same series that are excellent hand held for astronomy...but the 16x70s are my favorites by far for astronomy. Super contrast and resolution with excellent edge performance. They are heavy though so expect to use a mount to hold them steady. I tried the stabilization type binos from Canon and Fuji...too heavy so you really need to put them on a mount too so the stabil...

Excellent Binocular for stars
 
These are very well made binoculars. Clear bright stars almost to the edge. Far better than my German made binoculars that cost four times as much or other Japanese made at twice as much. Because of the individual focus these are best at viewing things not requiring refocus. These are probably the strongest made binoculars I have but are lighter than I was expecting. Not stylish but I am inspired by the obvious quality. I am sure these will last a lifetime. I have many top rated binoculars and u...

Best hand-holdable astronomy binocular
 
They are not too heavy or too large; some first-time users complain that they weigh a lot but they are lighter (1900 grams) than the older version (2200 grams). I got used to their girth after a few weeks or regular use. Now the 50mm binos feel skinny in my hands. A 50mm bino is not full-size; it's compact. The full-size are the 63mm and 70mm models.I've spotted nebulae and galaxies that are difficult to see with telescopes much larger than this 70mm aperture. The anti-reflection coatings are pe...

Almost perfect binocular for astronomy
 
The short eye relief of this binocular has already been much discussed, but I would like to add that for use as an astronomical binocular I found it acceptable to go a little bit beyond my ideal IPD setting of 62 to 65 or 66 in order to obtain more "nose relief" and hence get the full field of view. Though I don't wear glasses I have deep set eyes and am able to get the full fov with this method, without unscrewing the rubber eyecups.Also, if you have a reclining chair with armrests using these ...

Nicely made binocular
 
When I bought it, I showed it to my father. First thing he asked was, where is the magnification? [he mean zoom]. He was also very surprised that his 8-24x25 Nikon zooms have higher magnification than this, so in his opinion it was stupid of me to buy this large Fujinon binoculars. Nonetheless, I think that my dad's little zoom binos have quite a bit of a tunnel vision compared to these large Fujis. I like the Fujis, my father likes the little Nikon. For each his own, I suppose.

Great for spotting wildlife
 
I used these on my elk hunt and killed the biggest bull of my life. With the rugged terrain where I was hunting, they worked well to spot and stalk.

Very nice astronomical binoculars, BUT...
 
I purchased these for astronomical observation using a movable binocular chair (so they are rigidly mounted and shaking is not an issue). These binoculars are very heavy (twice the weight of my Pentax 16x60 binoculars) but feel solid and well-built. They shake a lot when hand-held and I would rate them as unacceptable for hand-held astronomical use. Pros include excellent on-axis sharpness, on-axis color correction, and fabulous coatings. The optics and mechanics are first-rate. Cons are ...
