    by fromExcellent binoculars, minor quibble I researched a lot of binoculars and tested out different pairs. The Monarch 5 are a great balance between price and quality. I needed something for both daylight viewing as well as astronomy. Having used them now for both and compared them to my brother's 8x42 (different brand, similar price range) the Monarch build quality is higher, fully coated optics are crystal clear and work great in low light, and I enjoy the magnification bump, which is noticeable. My only minor quibbles are that eyepiece cap that goes over the eyecups is too loose and falls off easily. Since it's tethered to neck strap I won't lose it, but I have to be careful b/c I don't want them to come off in my bag or someplace and expose the lenses dust, grit, or impact. Other than that, the fit and finish everywhere else, including the objective lens covers are solid, and feel really well built. Overall really happy with these binoculars.
