I've been wondering why my Meade stock has nose-dived from $40 to $2.3. Looking through any new pair of Meade binocs, including these, suggests an answer. If they are going to sell cheap CRAP like this, they should get out of the binocular business altogether. Even if they make a few bucks off this garbage, they are much more likely to make people who look through these to think "maybe I better buy a CELESTRON telescope after all!"

Bought mine from SCS ASTRO in the UK for about 55 a couple of years back. Very well made and excellent views for the price. Andromeda galaxy, Orion nebula, Jupiter's moons - all easy to see in beautiful detail. You can just make out Saturn's "ears" if you can hold these bins steady enough. My only complaint - the focus drifts too easily, even without touching the focus knob or eyepieces.
Looked through several other 50 10x50s before buying - these were the best.
They come with a carry case and are tripod mountable if you buy an adaptor.

If I could have taken these back to the retailer, I would have. I sold them in a wekk at a $50.00 loss. The glasses gave me a headache. Dim views and poor alignment.

Poor eye relief and cheap components, only BK7 prisms and not even fully coated. Not very sharp, and poor edge. I found them uncomfortable to look through. When I checked the optical alignement it was way off! The objectives are simply screwed into the barrels and the there are no means of adjusting the prisms, so the alignement error cannot be fixed. Also the grease in them makes them VERY hard to focus when its cold outside (Welcome to Sweden...).
Not recommended.
