That’s them. As the ad says, they’re great for travel and for birding, but i’m not sure about using them for astronomy. If u can, try and have a hands on test of a range to find what suits you best. I don’t know Sydney well enough to suggest stores. I got mine locally in Hobart so they must surely be on sale somewhere in Sydney😊☺️☺️

 

cheers

Just doing some more research and it does appear that binoculars suitable for bird watching, are not ideal for astronomy. For the time being, I'll concentrate on bird watching. Astronomy will have to wait til I move house down to the South Coast (NSW) where the night skies are clearer. Thanks for the help guys.

It was a cold and wet weekend, and too windy for chasing native orchids, so I decided to chase a few birds instead.

Two more photos this morning.

The Brown Thornbill (Thanks Mick) is right into nest building by the look of it.

Nice pics, but I think it’s a Brown Thornbill - it doesn’t have the brown leading edges on the wings, or the ‘white underpants’ of the Tas Thornbill.

Late afternoon walk today, very overcast and windy.

Found at least 3 pairs, possibly more, Flame Robins hunting among the grass.

 

Male.
