Actually it is better for at least most of us to focus the glasses on a telephone pole at a decent distance of say 100 yds. Also best to have them either supported by a tripod or laying on something solid, and not being held.Quick little test for ALL bino's at any cost is to to this quick little alignment test.
pic a long straight line such as powerline, horizon, etc.
next focus binos and then slowing start pulling them away from your eyes, you will start to see two separate circles form. You want the distant line to be even in both lenses.
