    Default binoculars with Low light ?

    I want a set of binoculars that I can see good in the woods, dawn and evening. I'm not rich, so under $200 roughly. I might be able to go higher, but at this time I can't.

    1st. Welcome to the forums.

    2nd. Maybe slide over and introduce yourself.

    3rd. There are a few options in that price range, BUT given where you're posting from, perhaps let us know if you're looking for open country, or more forested areas, and the distance you think you'd be glassing. Also, $200 USD or CDN?
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.

    The largest diameter objective lens with the lowest magnification will work best in low light, a lot of manufacturers will make something in your price range.

    I use 7x50 and they work reasonably well in low light. Divide the first number into the second (50/7=7.1), the higher this number is the better it is for low light.

    For $200 price range Konus Tornado 7X50 binocular is a good choice. Great in low light and under $200 likely ain't happening.
    You should check this article before to pick one or try the other.

    x2 on the leupolds 6x30, its amazing how far I can peer into the darkness, small enough to carry on my neck but big enough to give performance.

    My steiner extreme predator are great in low light with CAT technology. Also they have really good deals to get rid of stock sitting around sometimes. Mine were 50% off when I got them a 5+ years ago
