10×70 means: 10x magnification AND an exit pupil of 7mm – therefore brighter than the common 10×50 binocular, but also considerably larger in size and heavier. A fabulous observation tool, best used mounted on tripod. For astronomy, ideally to be used under a very dark sky, otherwise if your sky background is too bright, you actually would be better off with a 10×50. Only a small number of binoculars in configuration 10×70 / 10.5×70 / 11×70 are on the market today; this is one of the best. It is unfortunately not produced anymore.
