    How do I use the Victory HT case?

    I'm a bit embarrassed to ask, but could anybody tell or show me how one uses the Victory HT 10x42 case? I can't seem to fit the binoculars with the strap attached into the case. Where/how do I tuck away the strap?

    So, which 10x Trinovid?

    Trinovid 10x40 : 110m/1000m ; 600g ; splash resistant ; € 1180-1350. Trinovid HD 10x42 : 113m/1000m ; 720g ; waterproof ; € 960. Apart from the cool look of the new Trinovid that one may like for nostalgic reasons, doesn't the HD have a lot going for it if one doesn't need the very lightest weight?

    Recent history of the Trinovid?

    I'm getting a bit lost with the many versions of the Trinovid I've seen since the turn of the century, and was hoping somebody here could clear things up for me. I think I remember a new Trinovid series being announced a good decade ago, that had a very cool design (IMHO) and was regarded...

Just looking at wildlife, distant landmarks, boats at sea, and the occasional astro viewing (I'd mainly use my 15x60 binoculars for that). Looking to spend €500 - €1000 eyepiece included (I do have a few...

    Vixen 8x32 porro's, anybody?

    Came across these models on Vixen's website, and they look nice. Especially the Ultima 8x32, if it lives up to that series' reputation, could be very interesting. http://www.vixen.co.jp/en/bino/ultima.html http://www.vixen.co.jp/en/bino/foresta-zr.html http://www.vixen.co.jp/en/bino/ascot.html...

    How to improve results?

    I could probably do with a better camera (now an Olympus E-520) but I don't think equipment is my main problem. Using a 107 mm aperture telescope (700 mm FL, f/6.5) I find that depth of field is just minimal and with birds never sitting still it's a sort of hit and miss whether the photo will be...
