I agree with 4V50 Gary. My experience with binoculars is that you pretty much get what you pay for, and I don't think that you can get a quality pair of everyday binoculars for $200, much less a pair of long-range giants where every factor that's part of delivering a good image becomes more critical. My upscale birding friends, the ones with far deeper pockets than I, use Leitz or Swarovski and they occasionally let me look through them - the difference between those top-of-the-line glasses and even good quality ones that run to several hundred dollars is breathtaking. A quality pair of giants is going to be in the range of ten times more expensive than the Skymall product.
