    Need binoculars?

    Lidl have just got these beasties in:

    Need binoculars?-uk_69893_01_b.jpg

    They are 10x50 bins and most impressively, they have BaK-4 lenses - much higher quality than the usual BaK-7 usually included at this price point.
    I've just picked up a pair this morning and they are well built with a rubberised coating and I can tell you the image quality is very good (can't wait to try stargazing with them).
    All for the princely sum of £16.99.
    Full spec:


    • With robust, rubber-coated, aluminium alloy casing
    • 10x magnification
    • Exceptional viewing quality with 50mm BaK-4 lenses
    • Viewing range up to 114m wide at 1000m distance
    • Variable dioptre setting
    • With integrated tripod thread
    • Includes hard-wearing shoulder bag with belt strap, lens caps, eyepiece rain cover, carry strap, cleaning cloth and instructions
    • Size (cm): 6 x 16.2 x 19
    • 5 year manufacturer's warranty

    Just a quick bump to let you know that Lidl still have some of these in and they are very good quality indeed and for £16.99 a steal. In fact I've just picked up another pair for someone else this morning.
