There’s a new binocular in town. Sharper Image’s Spion weighs two pounds measuring 13” by 10” by 5” for portability.
The MSRP $200 binoculars go from 20x to a whopping 140x magnification (the garden variety binoculars are normally 7x with amateur telescopes generally 85x) and include a center wheel focus with diopter adjustment. The 70 mm objective lenses will gather tons of light for bright and clear viewing of objects and people up close and personal. The rubberized body makes for easy holding and there is an adjustable strap and a ninety day warranty.
It’s a ton of magnification for a fairly low price.
