    Default Just a bit more help on binocular choice, please



    I have decided to go whole hog and buy the Orion Little Giant 70mm
    binocs. I know nothing about pupil size, etc. But, I am 60 years old.
    So, would the best choice be the 11x70, the 15x70 or the 20x70? I'm
    thinking that with my age, the 15x70 would have the most appropriate
    exit pupil. thanks in advance for help!

    Rom, i would agree. And 15x70 is just at the limit of being handholdable.
    They should be a very nice starting pair of binoculars for you.

    Second that.
    The Little Giants are also currently on sale and include a tripod
    L-adapter.
    You may also want to check-out the Orion 15x63s. 10oz.(20%)lighter and
    much longer eye relief (19mm vs. 8mm). Same quality features , more
    ergonomic, and $50-80 cheaper.

    If you plan to use a tripod and parallelogram mount, go for the 20x70s.
    You'll see more.
