Answer:
Novice skywatcher here, but from what I've researched, it not that they're "better", it just more convenient. You can't see Mars or the rings of Saturn with these, but you can see details of the Moon as well as faint views of star clusters and glows of nebulas and galaxies that you'd never see with the naked eye.

You can't see Mars or the rings of Saturn with these, but you can see details of the Moon as well as faint views of star clusters and glows of nebulas and galaxies that you'd never see with the naked eye. Skywatching isn't just about 500x magnification, its also about low magnification observations.
So, the short answer is portability, quick setup and overall convenience. People say smaller scopes are used more then larger ones. see less

Answer:
Yes, first use the center adjustment to get it focused correctly for the left eye...now close your left eye and look only thru your right eye and adjust the right eyepiece until it comes into focus. Now you should be able to see clearly with both eyes!

I read that it'sto do with the exit pupil size and why I went for 15x70. Apparently adult pupils (those over age 25) have a pupil diameter of around 5mm.

Apparently adult pupils (those over age 25) have a pupil diameter of around 5mm. So with 15x70 binoculars that's an exit pupil size of just under 5mm (the 70 divided by the 15). So essentially these will let in the maximum amount of light into your eye thus giving the sharpest and brightest image. I believe that if you buy 25x70s then the images may appear quite dark. PS still waiting for mine to arrive so and brand new to astronomy so happy to be corrected. Hope this helps. see less

Answer:
The adapter screws onto the hinge behind the focus knob. There's a little plastic piece about the diameter of a penny that you have to remove first. It should turn off (ccw--standard right-hand thread) fairly easily. The larger square side of the adapter attaches to your tripod. I believe it's a 1/4-20 thread--pretty s… see more The adapter screws onto the hinge behind the focus knob. There's a little plastic piece about the diameter of a penny that you have to remove first.

Answer:
The angular field of view in this particular binoculars is 4.4 degrees, in layman's term that means at 1,000 yards you'll have a linear field of view 230.406 feet or 70.23 Meters.
In other words, looking into the binoculars at approx 1,000 yards at a target you'll have a wide eye view of 230.406 feet. So you'll see app… see more
The angular field of view in this particular binoculars is 4.4 degrees, in layman's term that means at 1,000 yards you'll have a linear field of view 230.406 feet or 70.23 Meters.
In other words, looking into the binoculars at approx 1,000 yards at a target you'll have a wide eye view of 230.406 feet. So you'll see approx 115 feet either left or right from the center point of your target without moving the binoculars.
For example, if two people were standing 1000 yards away from you, one was to your left and one to your right and the distance between the two people was approx 230 feet, then your field-of-view would be 230 feet at 1000 yards while looking through the binoculars.
If you're looking at a full moon you'll see the entire full moon and some more space around the moon. Hope that is the answer you're looking for.
To convert angular field to the more practical linear field, multiply the angular field by 52.5 see less

Answer:
You can take a little powder and gently pass it over the sticky area, that will eliminate the stickiness. Make sure and have the caps on the binoculars before doing it.
