hello all , tried most binoculars in my time for astro work , never one to break the bank i decided to buy the small refractor the skywatcher st80, which some people use as a guide scope ...works quite well for wide field viewing , and for the price  in my opinion is the biggest bang for bucks at the cheap end of the spectrum :)

Hi Kev, a warm welcome to EMS.

 

For the money, the ST80 is a great scope, and a step up from Bino's.

 

Enjoy the forum.

The st80 ota is certainly a step up Baz your correct there , always used binos...ive used celestron 15x70 ..20x80 and the Revalation 20x 80, olympus dps1 10 x50  , and i ended up keeping the helios nature sport plus 10 x 50 real nice add that lot together and thats a decent scope :) i like quick viewing thats why a went for the black st80 and with the nature sports binos thats all i require (hopefully) :)
