I bought these new about 6 months ago and used them a couple of times so they are like new. They are terrific and work just as advertised. Along with these I purchased 58mm UV haze filters and immediately placed them over the objectives. I also got two new camera lens style plastic covers and keep them over the UV filters. The objectives are absolutely pristine as are the filters.
Also, I purchased two 58mm to 48mm step down rings. This allows you to place standard 2" nebula filters in the rings and then place the rings in the binos. With only one UHC filter screwed in I was able to get a beautiful views of the Veil Nebula and the North American Nebula from a dark site about 50 miles west of Memphis this Autumn.
I'll sell the binos, case, UV filters and two (2) step down rings for $600.00 and I'll pay to ship FedEx in the U.S. Sorry no PayPal, will accept money order or cashier's check.
