You will need the tripod, but "too strong" is a relative term and depends on what you want to see. These binoculars should make it possible to identify people's faces at a half a mile.

You could probably see a plane but I doubt you could make out people. 20x80 sounds impressive but I liked my 10x50 much better for daylight viewing. A lot more portable.

I bought a tripod setup made by Orion. Not cheap, but it is a really nice addition to give the SkyMaster more functionability. Here is the link for what I purchased http://www.optcorp.com/or-5379-paragon-plus-binocular-mount-with-tripod.html

The answer is NO! You can buy solar filters for the objective lenses, but not for the eyepieces.

Similar to a low power telescope. Works well at being able to spot general moon features or the Andromeda Galaxy. Just be prepared to put it on a sturdy tripod for celestial viewing.

That really depends on what you are going to use them for. I bought the Orion Paragon-Plus XHD Extra Heavy-Duty Tripod Stand for Binoculars (Black) for my set. I originally got the binoculars for checking out the moon and some entry level astronomy. But I mostly use them for bird watching on the pond in my backyard. That tripod works pretty well for both - much better for the birds than planets.

Ashley, I bought these to study the moon, so the short answer to you question is 240,000 miles. Keep in mind that these binoculars are designed to be mounted on a tripod of some sort. They are a little too heavy to be hand-held. Since they have 20-power magnification, any vibration or movement of your body is transmitted to the image. A great pair of binoculars overall!

I attach the lense covers and then put back in carrying case standing up with the eye pieces on the top

They would rival any spotting scope. Keep in mind it is only 20 times magnification. Reading games from that distance would likely require higher magnification.
