Tripod Package

What is a better binocular for astronomy?

My husband and I are beginners to astronomy and I read a book that said to start out with a min 7 x 50 binoculars. i was searching on binoculars.com and telescope .com and am not sure whichbinocularr would be the most for my money. Any suggestions? I was looking at the Zhumell 20 x 80 Supergiant tripod package and the Celestron Skymaster 15 x 70 with tripod. Big difference? Open to any other suggestions.

I'd lean towards the Celestron (have a pair myself). They give a nice, bright field of view, fairly light weight and work well if you wear glasses.

One thing with any of these binoculars is that the internal optics are usually glued in place with with hot melt adhesive. Which why they are so cheap. If you drop them, the alignment will be knocked out of place and they are unrepairable (Found that out myself, also).

Having a decent way of mounting the binoculars, especially the higher powered and heavier ones, makes for an more enjoyable viewing experience. If you have the tools or know someone who does, you can make a simple mount called a parallelogram mount, like this -
