    i want to get the 7×50 pair he has there but i am not sure if i should get the version that is waterproof with the nitrogen in it that he has or the cheaper version that has the same lenzes but no nitrogen. I live in a costal town and in the summer we have days with 100% humidity; will this cause fog inside them? and should i pay the extra cash?

  9. SaturnAndItsRings says:

    actually the ones with bluish glassy colored lens are the best for astronomy.

  10. MrCohibaboy says:

  19. Mr2PacsFather says:

    @TormentedLucrious what about biuldings ? can you see them good ?

  20. BetaSagittarii says:

    To answer you questions, binoculars can not have their magnifications changed, and if you find models that allow that, they are usually optically inferior and the stars will be fuzzy. To answer you other question, there is no model of binocular that can be used for astrophotography. If I were you, I would not attempt to do any astrophotoghrapy other than a simple point-and-shoot camera through a newtonian of the moon and maybe the naked eye planets.

  21. BetaSagittarii says:

    To start off with, I would get the 9×63’s. Though you may have a little less aperture, the 9x will give you a wider field of view. Also, at 15x your arm shaking will be amplified 15x, which can make it difficult to aim and see a nice stable image. Another thing is that the 15×70’s will probably too heavy to be held comfortably for a long enough time to get a good look at an object, especially when it is overhead.

    I have seen Jupiter and 2 moons too, during a clear night sky. Unfortunately there is much light pollution and air pollution in the city I live.
