Customer Reviews

Nikon Aculon 16x50 So far these have been great entry level binoculars. They are fantastic for viewing things a bit too far off for 12x magnification and also work great for viewing the moon. I can vaguely focus in on Jupiter's Galilean moon's on a clear night with a tripod of course. They came with a tripod adapter so that was convenient. They also came with lens covers, a carrying bag and neck strap.The optical quality is great for the price point. I enjoy the clarity, brightness and wide view that they provide. That was my doubt initially, but it was not an issue. They are keepers due to what they offer. 5Great BinocularsI bought these binoculars because I was going to see the Phantom of the Opera, and I wanted to get the best set possible. This is a terrific set. It comes with a neck strap and a Nikon tripod adapter., and the case is really nice as well. Overall, it's a great purchase. I find it a little bit heavy for the opera or the theater, but I wanted something excellent, and this is it.5Great for distant viewingI'll admit, I do not know a lot about binoculars, lenses and the like. I wanted a good pair of binocs for use at the lake house to watch birds/deer/beavers as well as to watch people (because when you're on a lake, you want to see what everyone is doing). These binocs are not for sitting on a deck looking at objects within 25-30 feet. You'll want to use them for looking at objects 100 yds or 1/4 mile away. They are a little heavier and that's fine. I use my knees or railing for balance. The package comes with a tripod adapter (if you have a tripod, I don't). Overall great value, I might purchase a pair for my father for father's day.5These are great! I was afraid the magnification would be so ...These are great! I was afraid the magnification would be so much that it would be hard to see if you didn t have something to steady them with. That isn t the case! They work great!5Top notch, as expected from Nikon, with one exception.Can you get a pair of 16x50 binocs for $40? Yep. Then why pay $140?Because the quality is worth it.I have bought dozens of Nikon products over the last 30+ years and have never, not once, been less than thrilled with the quality and dependability of their products. You simply don't have to question whether it is going to be good or not.These binocs are no exception.The only criticism I have is that the diopter adjustment knob is a little hard to use if the eye cup is down all the way and you have large fingers.Apart from that these are great!The case is nicer than I would have expected too, very well padded.The Nikon tripod adapter is not plastic but solid thick aluminum.Even the neck strap isn't El Cheapo.So yeah, if you are looking to spy on the neighbors, go spend $40.But if you are looking for a high quality pair of binocs, you can feel very confident about spending the extra money for these.You really do get what you pay for...and that is a good thing.****EDITED OCT. 29, 2017****I do have one beef with Nikon that needs to be mentioned here. I buy a lot of their products because they are simply that good. But when you pay top dollar for something you expect that the details will reflect that. And on the binoculars (and other Nikon products) they do...except the lens caps. Nikon makes the worst lens caps on the market, whether it is cameras, or binoculars, and these may be the most frustrating lens caps of all time. The eyepiece cap just sits loose over the eyepieces. There is not even tension to hold it in place. The barrel end caps don't go over the barrel like most caps do, they snap into the inside of the rim...if you set them in just right. If you don't, then they stick in place for a few minutes and then fall off. Nikon has fixed something that wasn't broken here, and ended up making it worse. Fortunately, after-market standard lens caps can be purchased cheaply, and I would highly recommend it. Again, not an issue with the binocs themselves, but just a fairly important detail that could have been done better. -1 star.4Much Better Than The Celestrons I TriedI tried a set of Celestron binoculars, but the collimation was WAY out, giving a double image and making the binoculars useless. I got the 16X50 model. These are much better, for not much more money. The only negtive thing I can think of is the size of the eyepieces. If you have narrow-set eyes (say your interpupillary distance is 58mm or less), you will have to ajust the binoculars inward, and there won't really be enough room for your nose to use them comfortably because of the oversized eyepieces. If your eyes are wider apart, you won't have any problems at all. I like that the focus control is extremely smooth and and extremely easy to focus. I don't have any problems with shakiness for shorter viewing times. The difference between these and my old 7X35's incredible. They really bring in whatever you are looking at. These are a good value, and highly recommended.4Very good image. A significant upgrade over my 10x50.Pros:Thick solid metal tripod adapter.18mm wide eyepiece, vs 16mm on my Celestron 10x50 and 13mm on my Tasco 7x351.5 inch wide neck strap with leather backingThick, padded carrying pouch, without a strapMy reflection in the Nikon lenses (Objective and eyepiece) are dimmer than in my Celestron 10x50's by at least half, which is good for the Nikons.Sharp images with easy smooth focus. Not much turning required to focus.Near focus of 15 feet not 28 listed, but I am a bit near sighted but don't use glassesLight and easily hand holdable by me, but I've had lots of practice and am young. I can hold it steady with one hand.Measured exit pupil at thinnest point, and it is exactly 3.1mm, vs 4.3mm on Celestron 10x50Pressing my eye sockets against the eyepieces does not move the focusI can see veins in distant tree leaves that my 10x50 only shows the general leaf shape ofThe objective covers stay on easily and can clip onto the neck strap.As I look around my dark house inside, lit only by one computer screen, the view through the Nikons is no darker than with eyes.The smooth sides of the eye cups makes it easy to tape paper light shields on them to block side glare. It made the viewing that much more enjoyable.Careful measurement confirmed that the apparent field of view is indeed 61 degrees, a degree wider than my 10x50 wide angle, and that the magnification is indeed about 16x.Cons:During the day, I must look straight forward. I can't move my eye to look around the field of view like I can with my 10x50, because the exit pupil is smaller and gets blacked out. This is not a problem at night. At 5pm, with my pupil a bit larger, this is no longer an issue. I get better use during the day if I'm very careful to measure my interpupilary distance and match the eyepiece distance to it exactly.The eyepiece covers are too big and fall off the eyepieces. But they do clip on the neck strap so they don't have to fall on the ground. With some tape, I can make my own covers that double as side light shields.The carry pouch, although nicely padded, is small, and you have to really stuff the binoculars in there to barely close it.===The Andromeda galaxy and M33 are easier to see with the 16x50 than with 10x50. I did not see a dimmer view with the smaller exit pupil. In fact, the Nikons seem a bit brighter, even when looking at houses without any porch lights nearby. The Pleiades look better and show more stars in the 16x50. When looking at Venus, near sunset, I noticed some faint stars with the 16x50 that I could not see with the 10x50. Orion's belt also had a denser star field in the 16x50 than in my Celestron 10x50, though not by a large amount. Venus looked larger, but I still could not see its phase. Jupiter looked larger and rounder in the 16x50, and the moons were a bit easier to see but still small. I could not see stripes on Jupiter. The moon looked a bit better too, though not spectacular. I did not see any extra details at 16x that I could not see at 10x; however, I did not have to look as hard to see them. Any detail obvious at 16x could be verified at 10x. I was getting tired from being up late, and shake was more noticeable in the 16x than the 10x.I can locate M82 and M81 in my 16x50, but not in my 10x50. M51 and M101 are much easier to locate too.During the day time, the 16x50 expands every detail I could be curious about with my naked eyes. It makes me feel like I'm over on that distance hill, walking through that tall grass. The 10x50 is more for seeing the full picture.16x is as high as I can go and still have good depth of focus on terrestrial objects at different distances. At 25x, I have to refocus for each distance. Also, 16x is as large as I can go and still figure out where I am in the sky just by panning around. At 25x, I can just point and look but not know where I'm truly at unless I recognize and object of known location.I recommend owning a Nikon 7x35 and a Nikon 16x50 for both big picture views and detailed inspection. Get a telescope if you want more power.5Eyepieces are too fat to allow a good view without crushing my nose.Optics look fine, but the eyepieces are so large that I can not look through the binoculars without having to crush my nose between the eyepieces. Perhaps if you have wide set eyes and a thin nose, this may work for you. The celestron skymaster 15x70 worked fine for me. Also the Nikon Trailblazers 10x25 also were fine. Both of those are awesome binoculars too.3Crystal Clear Magnification !!!I bought these binoculars to compare with the Aculon 10x25 compact. The compacts are also great, but these are way better for the following reasons:1. Crystal Clear2. Magnification is POWERFUL3. Eye cups are extendable4. Tripod adapter included5. LightweightI live in NYC and I can see peoples faces clearly half a mile away! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!5Very Good Pair of Binoculars, with some issuesOptically, these are excellent binoculars. The images are crisp, and clear. But, the set has some disappointing parts. 1) the right eye diopter adjustment is very difficult to move and whenever I try to adjust it; it causes the eye relief cup to move with it. Very annoying. 2) the optical lenses cover is very loose; and the objective lens covers fit inside the objective cylinders and have a tendency to fall out in the carry case, so, poorly designed. The material and construction is barely above average. But, the lenses are great. The carry case and strap are very good quality. Also, you get a tripod mounting bracket, a very nice bonus. As far as looking at the night sky (moon, stars, etc) it's no big benefit. But, for up to a mile distance, you get great views and great details. Very happy about that.4Best for the money anywhere I use these for security work. You cannot buy better binoculars for this price. I would like the old style eye cups back though. They have twist in and out eye cups instead of the folding kind. New idea I guess for longer wear. They are clear. I have paid a lot more for others that just weren't as clear. I use short tripod to help steady them as they are 16 by 50's 5Seem decent, time will tellThese are made in China. The optics look pretty clear. They come with a decent neck strap. They also came with a tripod adapter. They work well with my glasses because the rubber eye pieces twist to get closer to the lens for glasses or farther away for viewing without glasses. They system is easier to use than the fold over rubber eye pieces.4
