Magnification (binoculars)

The magnification of a lens compared to the naked eye. A 10x magnification will make the distant subject appear 10x bigger than it is. A common mistake that many binoculars buyers make is to rush out and buy the most powerful they can find. While this sounds like a wise move it isn't. Powerful pairs are difficult to hold steady and the view is also dimmer. It's far more difficult to view a wobbly and dim object at 16x power than having an 8x power with a bright and steady view .
