Binoculars : Question and Answer

 

Q:

How much magnification do I need for my binoculars?

A:

For binoculars that you will use for typical leisure and outdoor activities, you should consider magnifications between 7x and 10x. 7x should be more than sufficient for theater/concert viewing, but you may want 8x – 10x for activities like bird watching or hunting. Unless you are willing to use a tripod, you shouldn't buy binoculars with a magnification over 10x because you won't be able to hold the binoculars steady enough to get a good image. If you are looking to stargaze in the US, you will need a telescope that has a magnification around 200x.
