The Canon 10x30 IS's do NOT have roof prisms. Though the rest of the IS line DOES use roof prisms, the 10x30 model uses Porro Prisms.

Check out their specs at: Canon's Site

>I have to disagree with the previous post that states: "the only roof prism bino's suitable for astronomy are made by companies like Zeiss and Swarovski and start at $1300". Check out Canon's 10x30 Image-Stabalized roof prisms that perform like 10x50's and sell as low at $350.

>A 30mm objective and a 3mm exit pupil add up to marginal astronomical usability under the best circumstances. A tripod and a good mount coupled with aperture and decent optics would be far more satisfying. IMHO.

What do you mean 30mm objective? This bino does not come in that size...

>Nice bright clear images to the edges. Easy to focus. Plenty focal relief, can use without my glasses (very nearsighted), some binoculars I have used do not come to focus.<

These are NOT clear out to the edges, that is the biggest problem with these binoculars. They are well built and provide good overall usage but be aware the wide field is only shart part way out.
