    Basic Binoculars with great performance

    Posted by Bird watcher 25 on March 7, 2019

    Yes These are not waterproof but, you get the biggest bang for your buck. It is a great all purpose binocular. They are better construction compared to many competitors asking for the same features. These are reliable and great lenses. They are brighter than my monarch but, when it comes to brightness they surpass the Steiner and Bushnell porro prism binoculars..

    Perfect for satellite spotting

    Posted by Maroochyman on October 2, 2018

    I use the Aculon 10x50s in conjunction with a smartphone app to search for and spot satellites. Crisp images and a good field of view are a necessity and the Nikon ticks all the boxes. I too found the diopter a little tight at first but once "zeroed" it stays there so, for me, it's a plus.

    Not waterproof, but astronomy in rain is never a concern, is it?

    Posted by Ezra Two-Eyes on May 3, 2018

    I am impressed with all the Aculons, and these are no exception. For inexpensive units they never fail to amaze me, it's true. The diopter ring is indeed rigid, but it may be a plus doing away with a locking mechanism. Optically nice, clear, crisp. Lack of waterproofing is a real drawback if you live in a humid environment, because mold/milder/fungus otherwise will be happy to feast on the interior lenses and prisms.

    Aculon A221

    Posted by hvitouse on November 15, 2014

    I use these for both bird watching and my local area car and boat drag racing. The magnification and clarity are great for events that attend.

    Good value, but diopter ring not Nikon quality

    Posted by DB97 on June 1, 2014

    Good value, comfortable, sturdy, bright, clear, sharp optics. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the diopter ring is much too difficult to turn, a surprising oversight for Nikon. Still, best value for the money.

    Awesome Nikons!

    Posted by Stargazer1 on December 13, 2013

    For the price these Aculons are impossible to beat. They are not waterproof but I doubt I'll need them for astronomy in the rain anyway! Visually these Nikons are very crisp and bright and a huge step up from department store varieties. Well done Nikon!

    initially a little disappointed

    Posted by Nikon Skeptic on November 26, 2013

    I just got these binoculars and am having some difficulty turning the diopter ring. At first it wouldn't move at all, but with some persistence and using two hands (4 fingers) I was able to get it to move. I guarantee you my grip is stronger than most. I have been working it back and forth for several minutes and it seems to be getting easier, but still far from easy. Hate to go through the hassle of returning it, but had much higher expectations of Nikon quality. The one I looked at in the store did not have this problem. I can live with this but now worry about the quality of the product overall. Hoping the optics will redeem these.
