Now for the optics. I certainly think these are good performers for the price. The images are sharp and clean, with good contrast. The optics are not as bright as what you'd find on binoculars with larger objectives, but this is to be expected. I compared Polaris ED glass to a similarly priced Leupold McKenzie 8x42 non-ED glass, side by side, and felt that Polaris came out ahead in terms of image quality.
The only drawback is that when viewing the Moon at night, the Polaris binoculars produce two distinct ghost images of the Moon - one on each side of the main image. None of my other binoculars (Carson, Olympus, Bushnell, Leupold, Nikon, Barska) have this ghosting issue. Somewhat puzzled, I contacted the Polaris Customer Service, and here is an excerpt from their reply:
"...Thank you for contacting us about the ghosting issues you are experiencing with your Polaris Optics ProBirder Ultra HD 8X32 Compact Bird Watching Binoculars.
Our binoculars are specially designed for bird watching and wildlife watching during the day. Because of this they are only designed with the reflective coatings needed to have the best experience for viewing during the day.
If you are using them at night for astronomy purposes you will probably not get the best image possible, because they were not designed for this purpose.
For your needs, it will be best to consider purchasing binoculars that are specifically designed with internal anti-reflective coatings that are necessary for astronomy viewing..."
In the end, my experience with these binoculars has been positive. Nighttime ghosting is not a big deal, and in good daylight these binoculars produce sharp ghost-free images. My daughter wanted them for her birthday, and she is thrilled to have them. I guess ultimately, it's what really counts.
