Huge 80mm Aperture
This binocular was designed to observe objects at a significant distance. With that in mind, the 80mm diameter aperture is more than enough for typical long range terrestrial viewing. The wide range of zoom levels available makes it easy to acquire your target and then zoom in to get more details.
Crisp, Color Corrected Images
Chromatic aberrations are a common stumbling block for a lot of standard binoculars. The higher magnification levels tend to affect the image produced by the lens. Since different wavelengths of light travel at different speeds, some colors tend to become more dominant at higher magnifications. This is where optical coatings help improved the images. Aside from high quality glass and precision design, optical coatings ensure that the images you view are color correct.
Be Prepared for Long Viewing Sessions
Although the Saxon 25-125x80 Zoom Binoculars can be carried around and used like a regular binocular, mounting it on a tripod significantly enhances performance at medium to high magnifications. Its tripod adaptable and once you mount it on one; you’ll be able to view images at high zoom levels without suffering from blurring caused by vibrations.

However the product itself was disappointing.
It has very limited features, including the zoom, focus and general scope and width of image.
Still, I guess you get what you pay for. I had perhaps unrealistic expectations and as a result was disappointed with the result.
An old pair of hand held binoculars that I have are in fact much better than the new Saxon 25-125x80, even with the new ones mounted on a tripod for steadiness.
