I bought the TS Optics 15 x 70 LE a few weeks ago at Teleskop-Express for a price of 119€. I think this binoculars are a good start for amateur astronomers. You don’t have the weight of a telescope and don’t have the problems to adjust it. You can take it easily with you and just start to look at the sky. It’s a nice way to learn star hopping. You have a greater field of view than with telescopes, which makes it easier.
I want to show you a really good software, it is called Stellarium.
I just found a very interesting site, it’s called WorldWide Telescope.
