    cool, thanks J.
    I should probably get a telescope later on to do some good moon and planet observing. Thanks for your POV

    Hello Donvegas,

    right, keep your Nikon binocular for the rich field observing, and pick up a scope good for the planets and Moon. Most of the folks here are doing it this way.

Overall i'm not very pleased with these for astronomy. Maybe I can sell them.
    The action EX do the same thing you are mentioning. They are great for looking at star clusters (I saw M34 last night in the bright city) but they do the same thing you are mentioning with the moon and Jupiter. Enjoy your 10x50 Action and don't second guess your purchase. The only thing really different with the EX are that they are nitrogen filled and the eyepiece relief is a little different.

    Thanks Carl,
    Don't have much binocular experience so i wasn't sure what was considered acceptable. I got them for $80 shipped so for that price i'll be fine with them.
