I am new to astronomy ( have never owned astronomy binoculars....yet) and have been looking around and would like to know, what one is better the Zhumell or Celestron 20X80, Both seem to have great reviews but I can't decide what one I should get..... Keep in mind if it turns out that they are the same or that Zhumell is better I would probably get the Zhumell package which is about $30 more then what the Celestron alone cost and includes a pretty good tripod( I think).... I do own a tripod but its probably 10yrs old and only costs about $15-$20 so the Zhumell package sounds pretty good to me but just wanted to know if the Celestron have some advantage over the Zhumell.
Any info is appreciated.

This is a binoculars forum that is mainly geared towards hunting.

Here's a quick mini-review from a Zhumell customer.

Be sure and look in the classifieds section under binoculars.

Head over to cloudynights.com and ask on that forum.  There are some very experienced amateur astronomers there that could help out.
