Binoculars are usually ignored by new astronomers because when they think about astronomy, they automatically think about telescopes. That's understandable. But binoculars have an important place in stargazing as I showed in this video.

Obviously, they have their shortcomings in terms of limited aperture and magnification, but in this video, I point out these 5 advantages that binoculars have over telescopes:

  1. They are smaller and lighter.
  2. They are easier to transport.
  3. You might already have one.
  4. They are less expensive.
  5. They make it easier to find objects.
