I've been wanting to get a pair of these for a while and bought a pair at the UK Astrofest last weekend. The clouds have parted today but I've just discovered the Sun is behind a tree at the end of the car park at work so I'm a little :( and :roll:

however, a quick glance through them last Saturday was a real joy and I'm really pleased with their performance. The spec is x10 with 25mm optics -- you may occasionally need to steady the binocs to get a better view. I've downloaded the technical stats on the instruments and once I've had a look at them I'll do up a review for Arcturus.

the bottom line though is that Coronado have come up with a real winner and my only regret is not purchasing a pair much sooner (as in, when those big groups were on the Sun last October). The Binomites are sure to be a big seller too in advance of the Venus transit in June.

Andromeda Optics are the Coronado dealers in Ireland though I'm not sure what price Wally and Jimmy will be pitching the binoculars at.

have a good weekend folks!
