This item was purchased for my husband to use at our mountain home in Gatlinburg, TN. From the deck of our cabin, you can see the streets of downtown and these binoculars allow close up viewing of all the activity. Also, these binoculars are nice for viewing the mountain terrain and points of interest such as Clingman's Dome. Our only problem was the zoom mechanism sticks. We are returning them and will order another set after receiving our refund.

The Good : Not too expensive, easy to focus below 100 X zoom, clear image.

Not So Good : Hard to focus at 140 power for some reason ( even with tripod) Keep in mind viewing the night sky with any binoculars removes all color. I wish someone would have told me that.

      Comments about Barska 20-140x80mm Gladiator Zoom Binoculars:

      Ordered two, returned both. Did some research and found these zoom binocs simply can not be used for astronomy because the two sides will not collimate. Stick with NON-ZOOM for astronomy. Sorry.

      Now if I can just get my neighbor to turn off her 24 hour exterior lighting for a few hours it would be even better for binoc. viewing as well as old Meade 90 EXC -still excellent product. Thank you

      90% of all viewing a tripod should be used, these glass are big and need a lot of support. The viewing is worth the extra bulk and weight.
