Product Description

Now that we've discussed the advantages of using binoculars for stargazing, as well as an in-depth discussion about night sky targets, in Part 1, and then discussed characteristics of binoculars in Part 2, it is time to talk about what pair of binoculars you may want to outfit yourself with for soaking up the beauty of the heavens—and, it might be that a pair of binoculars you already own fits the bill!

Price and Budget

In the world of optics, be it telescopes, spotting scopes, monoculars, or binoculars, the cost of the highest-priced optics is exponentially more than the least expensive—all while looking like nearly identical products. A fair question is: Where do I enter the market?

Sound advice is to buy the best pair of binoculars you can afford. Entering the market with a low-cost pair of binos can run the risk of keeping you from enjoying the night sky right off the bat. You might take the financial loss of a cheap pair of binos and never look skyward again. Or you’ll get a taste of how much fun stargazing is and immediately want to up your optics game—at an additional cost.

There is a marked difference in performance between a $20 pair of binoculars and a $200 pair. However, the difference between a $200 pair and a $2,000 pair is not as apparent to most viewers. In general, if just starting out, you will likely be happy with a mid-priced pair of binoculars—I know I have been.

Good binoculars are found at a wide range of price points.
