The Orion UltraView 10 x 50 Wide-Angle Binoculars are ultimate in eyeglass- and sunglass-friendly binoculars. Their extra-long 22mm eye relief allows the full field of view to be seen with eyeglasses on, simply by retracting the twist-lock rubber eyecups. UltraView binoculars are also long on optical quality. Made exclusively for Orion by Japan's largest manufacturer of high-quality optics, UltraViews feature the finest BAK-4 glass prisms and lenses finely ground and polished to exacting specifications.
All lens and prism air-to-glass surfaces are fully multi-coated, providing much higher light transmission than can be achieved with the standard coatings offered on most other binoculars. Colors are pure and images are tack-sharp right out to the edges. The large center focus wheel allows quick focusing with just a fingertip. The UltraView 10 x 50 Wide-Angle Binocular features a much wider field of view (6.5°) than standard 10x binoculars. Excels for high-power astronomy, long-distance nature observation and hunting. 5mm exit pupil, 16' close focus, extra-long 22mm eye relief.
This binocular's cast alloy metal construction holds up admirably under extensive field use. Black rubber armoring protects the binocular against bumps and scratches and finger grooves provide a sure grip. The UltraView 10 x 50 binocular comes with a rugged soft field case, objective lens caps and a deluxe wide neck strap. The binocular has a threaded socket to accept a tripod adapter.

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!
