Orion Mini Giant 12x63
I like these binos the best. Use them with or without a mount. Clear pin point stars across field. Very well made.

Not excellent, but very good binoculars. At almost 3lbs you can hand-hold them for a short while but you're probably going to want to mount them. With the eyecups rolled down I could see the entire FOV with my glasses on, that's a plus. Sometimes I'll rest binoculars on my eyeglass lense (slightly) while reclined in a lounge chair. You really shouldn't do that with these. The pressure will push them out of focus.

Optically I couldn't get stars as sharp as some other brands of binocular, even in the center of the field. Good, but not excellent. On the plus side the image held up pretty fair as you went off-axis.

If you find these used or on sale they could be a good addition to your viewing options.
