how close would a whitetail buck appear at 1 mile, using Steiner 20X80 binoculars

Asked by: Hiker Mike
I'm not sure I'm able to answer that effectively. The deer will still be 1 mile away, but the image that you see would be magnified 20x. the Field of view at 1,000 yards is 195 feet, so with 1 mile being 1,670 yards, the equation becomes 195x1.670=325.65 feet. A deer is ~7 feet long, or 1/46th of your field of view.

How are the m20x80's during night-time astronomy viewing of stars, the moon and star clusters? I currently own a pair of celestron 20x80 binoculars and I recently purchased a pair of steiner marine 7x50 binocculars and I like them.  Thanks

Asked by: DeeDee
I feel that they are great. They aren't designed for that application but they work well.

Close focus of these binoculars is 197 what? Feet? Inches? Centimeters? 

Asked by: HFRY
197 Feet.
Answered by: SteinerCustomerService
Date published: 2015-07-08

Specifications indicate Close Focus: 197. What is the unit and definition of close focus? The Sport-Auto Focus system indicates that the image is in focus from 20 yards up after individual adjustments are made; I find the images blurry at 20 yards.

Asked by: Marc
The specification of the sports auto focus being razor sharp down to 20 feet is a generic specification that indicates the capabilities of the system, not what the binocular is capable of. On other models of binoculars with the sports auto focus, the close focus is much closer than the high power 20x80 binocular. The lenses in the 20x80 binoculars limit how close an image will be razor sharp.
