I understand these to be Chinese made binoculars and well suited to astronomy rather than dicky birding given the weight and high powers e.g. 20x80. They are IIRC multicoated, absurdly big, and excellent value for money. They won't give the same image quality as Leica/Zeiss/Swarovski/Nikon but then again they cost a fraction of the price.

I believe that Opticron in the UK sell something similar. Yet another reason why I avoid going into binocular shops!

The Astromart forum has some user comments.
