Re: binocular suggestions

If you are looking for a budget bino, I'd recommend the Leupold wind river series. I have a set of the cascades, 10X, that are actually pretty decent. I believe they make an 8X cascade as well. For the money, I really like em.

Ck out GR8fuldoug at cameralandny.com look for Minox 8 or 10X42 . I just got a pair of 15X58 and their really good. Their are quite a few good posts about Minox on this site. I sure like mine... Bill Maylor.

I deffinately recommend the vortex diamondbacks from Cameraland. Worth your time to check them out in person somewhere and then order online cheaper.
