Oberwerk 11x70 binoculars An economical way to gather a lot more light than 10×30 binoculars

First, the plusses: At $181 shipped from, the Oberwerk 11×50 binoculars are really nice binos at a great price. I learned about them from Todd Gross’ web site. Todd is a long-time TV meteorologist in Boston, MA, and an avid stargazer. His review of the Oberwerks helped me decide. They really do grab a lot more light, and at 11x, they are less susceptible to shaky hands than the higher-magnification 15x model.
