Binoculars Anonymous 02/20/14(Thu)00:48 UTC+1 No.273272 Report

I am looking for some cheap binoculars that are lightweight to take backpacking with me. I don't want ones that are walmart-tier, but I also don't want to be spending a couple hundred dollars on a pair either. Anybody have any suggestions for decent, lightweight binoculars that don't cost very much? I am not trying to spot a gnat from a mile away - just want to be able to make out a deer or something from across a valley.

I must correct myself. It was the 16x 32's I got for $20.
The 50's are vari-power 7-18x I got from Goodwill but the right side is gassed out. Still breddy guuud though.

they zoom from seven magnifications to 15, and have 35mm objective lenses (the ones on the front)

7 - 15 is the magnification of the nocs. They're variable power so you can adjust for field of view vs detail.
The 35 is the radius of the outside lens.... bigger lens generally means better, brighter view

What do you guys think of these then?

Bushnell 138005 H2O 8x25mm
>BaK-4
>Multi-coated
>Non-slip
>waterproof: o-ring sealed and nitrogen purged
I primarily want them for bird watching and spying on others for fun. Also, some light gazing of the night sky. Waterproof is good as I always seem to find myself in ponds.

Are they worth it for £30? Bare in mind I have that £30 in Amazon vouchers, so if you have any slightly more pricey recommendations, I can consider.

wow, so mad.
Pics taken off my tablet in not-so-great lighting.
If you can't make out "Bushnell" >>273331 and >>273329 "16x 32" then you have bigger problems then just being a complaining bitch.
