5.0 out of 5 stars These binoculars live up to their reputation!, January 31, 2009
This review is from: Fujinon 16x70 FMTSX Polaris Binoculars USA (Sports)
When I decided I wanted to get some binoculars for astronomy use, I started reading a lot about binoculars, as well as reading a lot of binocular reviews. The Fujinon FMT-SX 16x70 binoculars kept appearing in review after review, and with consistent high praise as well. I got the impression that they are almost the "gold standard" by which all astronomical binoculars are judged. Once I was able to afford a set (they aren't cheap), I found that they live up to everything that I've read about them! They are very solidly built, with top grade optics & coatings. Astronomy is what these binoculars were made for, and they perform that function exceptionally well!

Dear "A Satisfied User",
I'd love to watch the night sky, too. Why did you go for binoculars and not a telescope?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 25, 2013 11:16:46 PM PST
Both binoculars and telescopes have their pros and cons. I prefer binoculars since I can pick them up on a moments notice, and they're ready to use. Telescopes are great if you want closer views, but they take more time for set up, and are also larger, so they aren't as easy to transport when I want to go to a darker location. Plus, their larger size means they also take up more room for storage. The binoculars can also be used for terrestrial viewing as well, which telescopes aren't designed to do.
