From the reviews:

"Binoculars are an often-overlooked lower-cost alternative for introductory astronomy students and beginning amateur astronomers. … The detailed information on buying and maintaining binoculars will be particularly useful for those who have always used telescopes. … Photographs and drawings are excellent and enhance the usefulness of the book; the appendixes contain additional information to enable proper selection and expert use of binoculars in astronomy. An excellent addition to the well-regarded Practical Astronomy series. Summing Up: Highly Recommended. General reader; lower-division undergraduates; faculty/professionals." (D. H. Gifford, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (11), August, 2007)


The advantages of using both eyes for astronomical observing are many and considerable, largely because of the way the human brain processes visual information. Binoculars - the usual kinds - are incredibly useful for wide-field observing, but "binocular astronomy" is much more than that, including binocular eyepieces that can be fitted to normal astronomical telescopes, and even giant binocular telescopes that are effectively two astronomical telescopes working in tandem. Here is everything an astronomer needs to know about binocular observing. The book takes an in-depth look at the instruments themselves, and has sections on evaluating and buying binoculars and binocular telescopes, their care, mounting, and accessories. In addition, there is a selection of fine objects to be seen with 50mm and 100mm binoculars.

HASH(0x95f5c294) von 5 Sternen This one book and a binocular is all you will need. 16. November 2015

This may be the last book you need to buy concerning Binocular Astronomy. Mr.Tonkin presents a thorough study of binocular fundamentals which helps the prospective shopper make the absolute best choice and explains WHY it's the best! The diagrams will help find your way around the sky handily - to me, it's more easily used than a planisphere.
Also, Stephen makes available online support to all with his monthly letter, "The Binocular Sky".
Well done, Stephen. Sir Patrick would be very pleased.

HASH(0x95f5c81c) von 5 Sternen Good How-To Source an Binocular Astronomy 6. September 2011
Von Steelbicyclist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Binoculars are great for astronomy because they are more portable than telescopes. They are also wonderful because one can use both eyes, which is much more comfortable and natural than one eye through a telescope. However, one can see more through a telescope.

I've ground mirrors and assembled a couple of reflectors. I have enjoyed amateur astronomy for decades. I use binoculars both alone and to assist in telescope astronomy. I use a 10x50, individually focused, porro prism binocular. This is simply the best choice for astronomy. In fact, such a binocular is necessary to find objects in order to hone in on them with the finder scope of the telescope. You don't need the best binocular made, just the best one you can afford. Of course, if you are one of those earthlings who belong to the "go to" school, then you don't need binoculars and probably aren't reading this anyway.

The book has some good information on collimating, disassembling, and care. It explains about different types of binoculars and how to use them. The book also contains useful star maps of 50 deep space objects for medium sized (mine) binoculars and 100 deep space objects for larger binoculars. This is good because amateur astronomers who are into binocular astronomy eventually get "giant" binoculars. But you should still start of with and keep the medium sized ones. These maps are probably best used along with a larger star atlas such as the Tirion 2000 to help figure out just where one is in the sky.

My only question with this book, and I took no points away for it, because it is more a matter of opinion, is why does the author have birding binoculars on the front cover? On page 40 he claims to see as much of the night sky through his 10x42 roofs as his 10x50 porros. This speaks perhaps more to the author's smaller dilating pupils than the binoculars, which may be the reason he can't see more through the porros. This may be misleading to a budding astronomer with young eyes, which can become more dilated in darkness and be able to take advantage of 10x50s or even 7x50s for that matter. The latter would let in more light, which would be wasted on someone with less than a 5mm exit pupil.

Overall, a good read and resource. Personally, I use "Binocular Highlights" by Gary Saronik and "Celestial Sampler" by Sue French, which I find a little more user friendly. As well, when I am doing some serious observing, I bring along "The Night Sky Observers Guide" and always the Tirion 2000 Sky Atlas. If I bring nothing else, I always bring that last one.

HASH(0x95f5c6e4) von 5 Sternen A Wee Bit Too Technical for Casual Observer 16. Januar 2013
Von Jim Schmidt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I treated myself to a pair of 15x70 binoculars for Christmas last month for the purpose of stargazing...wouldn't you know in 3 weeks we've had only a handful of clear nights! I feel like a character in some ironic short story that gets a gift that he can't use! ;-)

But, the nights have been able to use them have been so rewarding! It's amazing how much more you can see with an inexpensive pair of binoculars compared to the naked eye. They are also great because you can use both eyes (bi-noculars!) and because the field of view lets you see more of the sky.

I'm still learning my way around the sky, but I've already been astounded by looking at easy targets like Jupiter, the moon, or some clusters that you can make out with the naked eye but are STUNNING in binoculars!

I've started borrowing a few binocular astronomy books from the local library hoping to find one that might be worth adding to my own library.

This was the first one I read. The first part of the book might be better for someone who has not yet bought binoculars as there is substantial information on how they work, how to choose them, evaluate them, etc. The book is quite technical and seems geared towards those with "bigger pockets" in terms of binoculars, mounting, unique observing chairs, etc. He even spends time on advice on nutrition. There's very little on *actual* stargazing until you get to the back of the book. The 50 objects for 50mm binoculars and 100 objects for 100mm binoculars are useful with charts of what you should see through your eyepiece, but the objects are heavily slanted towards star clusters with no mention at all of solar system objects.

A good amount of this information can be found on the author's very good website binocularsky dot com

It's a good book, but not the one I was looking for.

HASH(0x95f5cb70) von 5 Sternen Good Coverage of Binocular Astronomy 20. März 2013
Von BD King - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Until recently I owned and used an 11" celestron, and was fairly familiar with the night sky. I sold my astronomy gear because the setup and take down were extensive, and I found myself looking at the same 20 items each time I went out.

I decided to try binocular astronomy, and this book provides an excellent summary of the pastime, along with exceptional advice on how to choose binoculars. I am finding binocular astronomy to be as rewarding as telescopic astronomy. You cannot see as much detail, but it is vastly more relaxing to sit in a recliner with a good chair mount, and survey the night sky. You can still make out some detail in the Messier objects, and this book guides you in how to best do that.
