New Main: Binoculars
Astronomy binoculars are a type of binoculars that are designed specifically for observing celestial objects such as stars, planets, and galaxies. They are similar in design to regular binoculars but typically have larger objective lenses and higher magnification.
The basic design of astronomy binoculars involves two telescopes that are mounted side-by-side and aligned to point in the same direction. The front lenses of the telescopes are larger than the rear lenses, which helps to gather more light and provide a brighter, clearer image.
Our binoculars are classified by two numbers, such as 10x50mm or 20x80. The first number refers to the magnification, which is the amount that the binoculars will enlarge the image compared to the naked eye. The second number refers to the size of the objective lenses in millimeters, which determines how much light the binoculars can gather.
Astronomy binoculars work by gathering light from distant celestial objects and magnifying the image so that it can be viewed by the observer. The larger objective lenses of astronomy binoculars allow for more light to be gathered, which results in a brighter and clearer image. The magnification allows for the observer to see distant objects in more detail, such as the craters on the Moon or the cloud bands on Jupiter.
One of the advantages of using binoculars over a telescope is that they provide a wider field of view, which allows for a greater area of the sky to be observed at once. This can be especially useful for finding and observing objects that may be difficult to locate with a telescope.
We recommend using a tripod with the larger binoculars due to their weight. Save 20% on a tripod when you purchase the 20x80mm or 25x100mm binoculars.
