Hi there, how are you? I'm a new member here, though I've been lurking on this website for quite a long time. I believe the first time I stumbled across this website was when I bought my first binoculars and first telescope back in 2014.

Well, I found little information on those particular models regarding astronomical use. I see it's not really desired in the bird community because it lacks a short focus. They are more suited to be marine binoculars. I know there's no such thing as autofocus binoculars as some vendors claim them to be, and the truth is your eye is the "autofocus" mechanism behind it lol.gif

So, I'd like to know if someone uses them for astronomy and to view distant objects and find them reasonable enough. Also, are they suitable for someone with tired eyes? I mean older people and people who have astigmatism, hypermetropia, and myopia.
