Since you guys were so helpful when i asked about knives, I figured that you all might know, or have some suggestions of some binoculars that would be economical, versatile, rugged and light. Compact might not be that bad, but i would prefer functionality over size. I suppse I would like them for range spotting of course, and I'd like to use them in the woods for spotting out birds and whatnot. Also, using them at night for star-spotting would be nice too. I was just wondering what you guys use. something under $100 would be nice. Thanks!
