On the floor trial, the 25×70 once again showed the acute image quality where it is perhaps best known. Its 25x magnification and larger 70mm objective lens did well to show the planes of the rocks. Both the CP and the MPB were very precise in definition and each had a decent level of brightness across the lower portions of the vision that is helpful for object recognition. The big difference between the two, as mentioned, was the slight resolution drop off in the upper portions that shows up in the Planes of the FOV and the user interface. Whether this is a fault of the CP or the MPB we cannot say, but 100 yards is where we would have expected both instruments to perform at their best.

Its bright, sharp optics combined with its small, lightweight build makes the StarMaster 25×70 binocular a great choice for a wide variety of uses. Whether you're out traveling in the backcountry enjoying the scenery or you're an avid wildlife or sports photographer, the 25×70 will be an excellent addition to your collection.
