Comments about Canon Canon 18 x 50 IS, Weather Resistant Porro Prism Image Stabilized Binocular with 3.7 Degree Angle of View, U.S.A.:

I purchased these binoculars espcially for astronomy. They have great light-gathering capability. The image is crystal-clear and going from a warm house to below-freezing temperatures outside does not create fog on the lenses at all. The image-stabilizer is an excellent feature and a necessary one at this magnification. The tripod adaptor works like a dream and is essential in my astronomical observations.

I am also an avid bird watcher and these binoculars are the best I have ever owned.

I have 7x50 Bausch & Lomb, 10x70 Nikon,8x30 Zeiss, and 8x30 Leitz binoculars and my 18x50 Canon IS binoculars are far superior to those for astronomy or bird watching. I highly recommend them.

Comments about Canon Canon 18 x 50 IS, Weather Resistant Porro Prism Image Stabilized Binocular with 3.7 Degree Angle of View, U.S.A.:

I shoppedd carefully for several months and decided on IS binoculars as I had many uses in mind. I was more than satisfied when I used these on the Bullet Train and was able to view mountain top features with nearly no wobble or shake. They really do work. The views in low light applications are also impressive and even under low artificial light I can make out facial features at over 1000 yards.

Comments about Canon Canon 18 x 50 IS, Weather Resistant Porro Prism Image Stabilized Binocular with 3.7 Degree Angle of View, U.S.A.:

The Canon 18x50 IS, which I originally bought to provide a portable solution for astronomy, since their purchase have also proven to be an equally portable substitute for a lower-powered spotting scope, wonderful for driving around a nature preserve, and viewing wildfowl and the like. The image stabilization REALLY works, either while viewing the heavens from a chaise lounge, or across a mudflat picking out shorebirds. They aren't light, but can readily be carried with just a neckstrap. They aren't cheap, but they are versatile enough to make them probably my best ever purchase[...]
