hello .
I'm going to buy a second hand zeiss conquest 8x30 T*B for bird watching and night sky . i don't have a lot of information about what is the best choice for my need . i red lots of review and found that it has really good quality . i don't know does zeiss conquest 8x30 T*B can satisfy me for bird watching and night sky or not . also i found that zeiss conquest 8x30 T*B has a 6.9 degree FOV and i don't know it is enough or not . Also if there are some vintage binocular (like zeiss 8x30 oberkochen ) instead of conquest ? please help me .

I am not sure if you mean the older version Conquest 8x30 or the newer Conquest HD.
 
The Conquest HD is a very good model, and is better if you can afford it.  The older one may
also do just fine for you.
 
Good luck, let us know how things turn out.

I think these are good bird watching binoculars.  For night sky I usually like something with a little more exit pupil, but these will work just fine in a pinch.

Good binos but for low light if you can get something with a larger objective it will help and to make the most use of your eye pupil, something where the objective / magnification = 7 will help
Was sure I had a point when I started this post...

Thanks everyone .
Yesterday i bought that zeiss . It is fantastic . Very bright . Neutral color . Its close focus is useful for bird watching . Super sharp and also very good for night . It is powerful against bright light . 
Thanks again .
