Answer:
From my research on binoculars they say 8 X 42 binoculars are best for bird watching. The 8 x and 10 x in a binocular description is the magnification. The larger the magnification number the narrower the field of view. Thus, as birds tend to flint around, a wider fielder of view is what you need to keep them in view,… see more From my research on binoculars they say 8 X 42 binoculars are best for bird watching.

Answer:
That depends on the size of the stadium and your personal preference. The greater the magnification (the higher the first number) the closer the object appears, but the more the field of view is reduced (i.e. the QB may look closer to you, but you may not be able to see the receivers or defensive backs). It just depe… see more That depends on the size of the stadium and your personal preference. The greater the magnification (the higher the first number) the closer the object appears, but the more the field of view is reduced (i.e. the QB may look closer to you, but you may not be able to see the receivers or defensive backs). It just depends on how far away you are and how much of the action you want to be able to view through the glass. Also at magnifications of 10 or higher, you will get more "binocular shake" as the binocular magnifies your hand tremors and the bouncing of your stadium seat. If this is a problem for you, you may want to try a pair of "image stabilized" binoculars which will substantially reduce image shaking, but which are more expensive and require batteries to work. Good luck and I hope your teams have a good season. see less That depends on the size of the stadium and your personal preference.

Answer:
YES THIS WOULD BE FINE FOR STAR GAZING, HOWEVER WHEN USING BINOCULARS AT NIGHT OR IN LOW LEVEL VIEWING SUCH AS DUSK OR DAWN YOU WANT THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF LIGHT TO PASS THROUGH THE LENSES AS POSSIBLE. THE HUMAN EYE CAN OPEN TO ITS PHYSICAL MAXIMUM OF 7MM IN COMPLETE TOTAL DARKNESS TO ALLOW AS MUCH LIGHT IN AS POSSIBLE… see more YES THIS WOULD BE FINE FOR STAR GAZING, HOWEVER WHEN USING BINOCULARS AT NIGHT OR IN LOW LEVEL VIEWING SUCH AS DUSK OR DAWN YOU WANT THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF LIGHT TO PASS THROUGH THE LENSES AS POSSIBLE. THE HUMAN EYE CAN OPEN TO ITS PHYSICAL MAXIMUM OF 7MM IN COMPLETE TOTAL DARKNESS TO ALLOW AS MUCH LIGHT IN AS POSSIBLE SO YOU CAN SEE. WHEN USING ANY DEVISE SUCH AS BINOCULARS TO LOOK THROUGH THEY WILL DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF LIGHT THAT ACTUALLY REACHES THE RETINA OF THE EYE WHERE SIGHT TAKES PLACE. BECAUSE OF THE PHYSICS OF REFLECTION, REFRACTION AND OTHER FACTORS THAT RELATE TO HOW LIGHT IS TRANSMITTED THROUGH DIFFERENT MEDIUMS SUCH AS GLASS, HIGH RESOLUTION POLISHED GLASS, AS WELL AS VARIOUS COATINGS, THE INTERNAL PRISMS AND OR MIRRORS, A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF USABLE LIGHT CAN BE LOST. THIS IS WHY THERE IS AN INCREDIBLE DIFFERENCE IN COST OF BINOCULARS FROM $29.00 TO AS MUCH AS $10,000.00. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR BUT DO YOU NEED THAT MUCH, BECAUSE THERE IS A POINT OF NO RETURN OR MINIMAL MARGINAL RETURN. THE ANSWER LAYS IN THE SPECIFIC INTENDED USE AS IN HIGHLY SCIENTIFIC VIEWING OR CASUAL NIGHT GAZING. NOW BACK TO THE EYES ABILITY TO SEE AND HOW BINOCULARS WORK. THE KEY TO LOW LIGHT VIEWING IS TO ACHIEVE THE HIGHEST EXIT PUPIL COEFFICIENT OR NUMBER THAT YOU CAN WHICH IS A MEASUREMENT OF THE AMOUNT OF LIGHT THAT IS GOING TO EXIT THE VIEWING INSTRUMENT AND REACH YOUR EYE. PREVIOUSLY I STATED THAT THE HUMAN EYE CAN OPEN TO A MAX OF 7MM SO THERE IS NO POINT TO GO PAST A HIGH OF SEVEN. THE WAY YOU CALCULATE AN EXIT PUPIL FOR BINOCULARS IS TO DIVIDE THE OBJECTIVE LENS SIZE BY THE MAGNIFICATION LENS SIZE, IN THIS CASE 56 DIVIDED BY 12 WHICH = 4.6666 MM. THAT IS GOOD BUT COULD BE HIGHER WITH A 10 X 56 WHICH WILL HAVE A 5.6 MM EXIT PUPIL VALUE. HERE IN LIES THE RUB, YOU WANT AS BIG OF OBJECTIVE LENS AS YOU CAN TO ALLOW AS MUCH LIGHT TO BE CAPTURED BUT IT COMES AT A PRICE WITH BOTH PHYSICAL (SIZE AND WEIGHT) AND EXPENSE ($). THE OTHER FACTOR TO CONSIDER IS THE AMOUNT OF MAGNIFICATION AND THE PROS AND CONS THAT ARE INHERENT WITH HIGHER MAGNIFICATION. THE HIGHER THE MAGNIFICATION THE MORE UNSTEADY OR SHAKY AN IMAGE WILL BE TO LOOK AT AS WELL AS HARDER TO LOCATE YOUR INTENDED OBJECT YOU WANT TO VIEW, BUT THIS CAN EASILY BE COMPENSATED BY USE OF A TRIPOD. I BOUGHT THE 10X56 FOR THOSE REASONS. THE MAX NIGHT VIEWING EXIT PUPIL IS AN 8X56=7MM BUT YOU LOSE MAGNIFICATION. IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHATS MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU MORE LIGHT OR MORE MAG. THESE ARE VERY GOOD MID LEVEL ENTRY BINOS I AM VERY HAPPY WITH MINE, I HOPE THIS SHEDS SOME LIGHT, NO PUN INTENDED, OH YES IT WAS, GOOD LUCK AND GOOD VIEWING. see less YES THIS WOULD BE FINE FOR STAR GAZING, HOWEVER WHEN USING BINOCULARS AT NIGHT OR IN LOW LEVEL VIEWING SUCH AS DUSK OR DAWN YOU WANT THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF LIGHT TO PASS THROUGH THE LENSES AS POSSIBLE.

Answer:
Don't see a binocular listed at $58 on Amazon. If the questioner could give the name and number, (e.g., Celestron 7332 Nature DX 8X42), I'll take a stab at an answer.

Answer:
They do come with a case, but it doesn't have a belt strap. The binoculars themselves are on a strap to hang around you or your pack.

Answer:
Yes. I wear progressive lenses. Maintain focus at infinity on the binocular (which is standard practice) and then always use the farsighted part of your eyeglasses for viewing. The strain relief eyepieces on the binoculars are flat (some others have sun block surrounds at the ends) and easier to use with eyewear.
