I got these binoculars, Celestron 15 x70. Even on a clear sky of polluted city light, I can see Mars, Jupiter and its biggest moons, as well as Saturn with very faintly noticeable rings. Also, depending on the days, the planet Venus is also a very bright object in the night sky, just before Sunrise of after Sunset. You can also use those binoculars in the day time for nature observation. I don't use a tripod, I just lean on a wall or on something for farther away objects, to limit shaking. One advantage of binoculars is the use of both eyes for a more three dimensional image, while telescopes only uses one eye, but it gives a bigger image. Night sky observation is better and richer outside cities, where you can even see with naked eyes, the arm of our own galaxy, along with many more objects, blinded from us by city light pollution. If it were up to me, at least once a week, I would order a total electric blackout, to perfectly see the greatest show in the universe.

Binoculars diopter adjustment: Most people don't have the exact same strength of both eyes, which is why with all Binoculars that I know, first you have the perfectly adjust the focus with the left eye, keeping the right eye shut; And then close the left eye and only adjust the right eye, by turning the special separate right eye diopter adjuster, and once also corrected, open both eyes for a perfect vision.

Got to see tonight Mars (Redish) at the east, and at the south Jupiter and its biggest moons, and more clearly than last night Saturn with ring starting to be barely noticeable, with my Celestron 15 x70 binoculars. To see Saturn, you need your binoculars perfectly adjusted on both eyes with the diopter adjustment

As the video shows, the plastic part that holds the binoculars is a bit cheap and causes shaking, I tryed it on a tripode, and prefer holding it in my hands; the image is excellent
