I am thinking about getting some bigger aperture binoculars. I have found I like center mounting posts over the L adapter. Barska, Celestron and Orion all make 25x100. Oberwerk does as well but theirs are out of stock. All things given, they are all fully multi-coated with relatively the same field of view and they all have center mounts. Prices are all in the same ballpark. So, what do you all think about the quality of the above three makers? Are they all basically the same or is one better than the other? Thanks for the help!
I don't know where you got your information, but, if you go to the individual websites, you will see that
Barska & Celestron are only multi-coated. (MC) Which tend to show ghosting on bright objects such as the full moon.
The Orion is Fully multi-coated. (FMC)
The Oberwerk is Fully Broadband multi-coated.
I would rate the Oberwerk #1 overall.
Celestron SkyMaster & Barska Cosmos tied for #3.
With Oberwerk you have a choice between the older model with Individual Focus or
the newer model 25x100 which has Center Focus & their latest technology in optical coatings.
The Deluxe models recently received an upgrade in the optical coatings within the past year.
Based upon my past experience with Chinese 25x100mm binoculars I would recommend the Oberwerk.
