My New 25x100 Giant Binocular!




I have just received the new 25x100 Giant astronomy binoculars. I have always been a binocular fan ever since I became interested in astronomy. Although my first instrument was 20x50 Super Zenith binocular.

The 25x100 is very bulky and looks very attractive with giant 4-inch multi coated glasses! I hope it will help me to find the new comet. I will purchase its stand by August end. The views of M42-The Great Orion Nebula, M45 and M44 will be undoubtedly outstanding! This new binos will get name MIZAR. My 8-inch reflector has been named VEGA.

Hi Sandeep,

Thank you very much for your comment. Yes the bino’s performance is very well but the problem is when I am observing directly overhead. I am thinking to change its stand. Here are few links given below that has my observing reports and many more with this binocular. I hope you would love to read them one by one
