    Hi,

    i don't mean to hijack the thread but i am also looking for my first binoculars and had a question.. how do you collimate if they are not already collimated ? do they have screws on it for collimation ?

    I was looking at the Celestron skymaster 15x70 without a tripod but now i have one more brand to consider .. the Barska

    well Amazon has only 7 reviews for Barska and some of them are not good.. you might want to read those..


    Thanks.
