You can see great views of the moon, Saturn, the moons of Jupiter, and many star clusters in the sky. They are also great for bird watching and sporting events. This kit is perfect for someone who is just getting interested in viewing the night sky. Attaching these binoculars to a tripod will provide great stable views while the included planisphere will help identify objects in the sky. An inexpensive option to buying a telescope. A great buy!
