  Employing the best optical designs and superior waterproof construction, the Vixen 16x80 Giant is an exceptionally good astronomical binocular.  Its display of the sky will dazzle you.  All the binoculars in this Giant series are very large units, that require a great tripod.   But if you'd like to really see what those faint fuzzies are above you, then you can't do much better than with these true Giants.   The 16x80 is an excellent magnification/viewing field compromise, with a broad 68° apparent viewing field.

        Comments about Vixen Optics 16x80 Giant Binocular:

        VERY QUICK SHIPPING TO UK FROM STATES...ARRIVED WITHIN THREE DAYS
        OF ORDER BEING DESPATCHED.
        GOOD BUILD QUALITY AND OPTICAL PERFORMANCE ... WITH A WEIGHT OF
        JUST OVER 2KG , I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO USE ON A FAIRLY LIGHT WEIGHT ( &
        INEXPENSIVE) TRIPOD , WHILST ALSO BEING LIGHT ENOUGH TO HAND
        HOLD, IF A QUICK OBSERVATION IS REQUIRED.
        I LIVE IN AN URBAN AREA WITH SOME LIGHT POLLUTION , BUT AM ABLE TO
        PICK OUT NEBULOUS MESSIER OBJECTS OK USING THEM , WHEN "SEEING"
        CONDITIONS ARE GOOD.

        THE BUILT IN DEW SHIELDS OVER THE OBJECTIVES ARE A GREAT IDEA !

        THE LENS CAPS COULD BE A LITTLE EASIER TO REMOVE, BUT IT'S A VERY
        MINOR INCONVENIENCE & MAY WELL LOOSEN UP AFTER A LITTLE USE.

        A VERY GOOD PRODUCT AND SUPERBLY QUICK SHIPPING..
        VERY SATISFIED UK CUSTOMER.

        Best Uses

        • Astronomy
        • Comet magnitude estima

        Comments about Vixen Optics 16x80 Giant Binocular:

        I had been looking for an astronomical binocular quite a time, intended to use for comet observation.
        This binocular is great for that purpose. In my opinion, the best balance between magnification and exit pupil diameter. Excelent angle of view, easy to defocus and compare with reference stars.
        It meets precisely the specifications, specially about beeing fogproof: in a star party that took place in a very humid night, many others got rapidly wet, and this one keep providing an excelent sharp view.
        The only thing I would recommend to improve (but not critical) are the rubber eyecups. I have a big nose (like many others). In order to properly approach the eye relief, I have to press them a little more than I would like to. They don´t fit very comfortable for a long observation period.
