Nikon Superior E (SE) 12x50 binoculars with 5° true field of view. Some regard these as the best binoculars for stargazing. Optics are clear and blemish free. All mechanical functions are excellent with no play or flop. Very smooth and precise focusing gives excellent 3-D views characteristic of porro-prism binoculars. Birders consistently regard the smaller 8x30 SE to be best binocular for hard to please bird watchers. The optics in the 12x version are the same as the 8x except for the 50mm objectives. Used but in very nice condition I would rate them cosmetically 7.5 out of 10. They were rarely used so there is little general "wear and tear" such as around strap lugs. The case is cosmetically good but with the Nikon badge missing. Neckstrap is hardly used. Comes with original new lens caps, strap and case.
