Reasons not to get an astronomy binocular may include you are only interested in the details of things far off in space, not something up close. If you want something that has a high magnification, youll actually need a telescope instead of astronomy binoculars. Are you wanting to use your binoculars to track down birds? If you are then this is not the right one for you.
Astronomy binoculars are meant to look at the stars, late at night and a far view. However, just because it is a far view does not mean you will see every little crater in the moon. But you will get to see a cluster of stars or even constellations.
A couple of astronomy binoculars you may want are the Hercules 20-40×100. This pair of binoculars are a giant compared to the rest. The actual binocular sits on top of a tripod and has a handle to help you navigate the direction you want to look. This can even be used for those that wear glasses, so if that was stopping you it isnt any longer. You too, can look out at the stars now. They are even waterproof, so if it starts raining while you are star gazing its okay. These binoculars cost around 00, but are worth every penny. This can even come with its own silver case to store everything in. The legs of the tripod actually fold down for easy storage.
Other astronomy binoculars you might want to look at are the Celestron Binoculars. The SkyMaster Giant is a pair of binoculars that are gray in color and have a grip hold so you they wont slip through your fingers. A good pair of binoculars means youll have better lighting and sharper images and this one gives you just that. The Celestron binoculars run around . You can set this up out in your backyard or on the top of a hill late at night with its own tripod that comes with it. No longer will you have to hold your own binoculars.
Start thinking about why you want astronomy binoculars and figure out if they are really what you need. If they are, figure out which one is in your price range. If they are what you want then go out and buy yourself a pair of astronomy binoculars and start star-gazing tonight.

Note: A previous version of this video referred imprecisely to “Neolithic Britain” when discussing the Newgrange tomb in Ireland. We have removed that phrasing. My apologies to the Irish.

Stonehenge is a popular destination for summer solstice celebrations because the 5,000-year-old monument points toward the summer solstice sunrise on the horizon. However, it also points to the winter solstice sunset in the opposite direction and there’s good reason to believe that this may have been the more important alignment for the Neolithic people who built Stonehenge. We investigate by constructing a tiny model of the Stonehenge monument.
