*EDIT* ~~ I found my answers (for the most part) here --->>> http://www.opticsplanet.net/how-to-b...lars.html#ch01 ~~~ & here --->>> http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_is_the...ulars_measured
Hey all...this is sort of indirectly related to firearms, but I have inherited a pair of "Mason", 16X50 binocs...does anyone know if they're any good? Is that a pretty good strength (16X50), please?
Thanks in advance,
PS ~ underneath the 16X50 power designation, it says: "183 ft. @ 1000 yards" - does that mean they make 1000 yards away look like only 183 feet away, please?
