If the popular Ostara Elinor 10×50 binoculars are too large for you, the equally impressive Elinor 8×45 are not only a worthy alternative, but better in a couple of ways. For one, they are lighter, and secondly give a picture window 145m @ 1000m field of view.
The larger field of view and impressive optics makes them perfect for general use and birdwatching. But same as the 10×50 version are also ideal for wide field astronomy
Oversized twist eye cups, right eye dioptre adjustment and focuser makes them easy to use even with glasses on. As with all the Elinor range they are as tough as binoculars come, and are backed up with a 30 years warranty
