30x to 280x X 160mm. Okay. Those are a pair of monster binos! 
with a serious tri-pod you should be able to see all kinds of things in the Heavens.
Never forget your binos.

I only paid 120 and it is no name brand not sure if it is accurate because when I compare it to my 22x60 binoculars there's only a very slight differance as far as range and when I look at Saturn I can't see any rings just a small white dot, it is focused and on a tripod, what could be the problem? Quality maybe?

Quality glass trumps Magnification every day of the week. This is true in every type of Optic.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

I think there is a lot of truth in this.
Was sure I had a point when I started this post...
