What sort of Binos should I be looking for stalking???
I don't want to brake the earth but want a pair that will do the job in low light levels.

Difficult! Cheap, but good in low light! As with a scope, cheapness won't give good low light performance. I use these: http://www.nikonspor...er-se-8x32.html You can pick up a second hand pair for around £300, I think I paid just under £500 so, as with a scope putting them in the low to mid price bracket.

What sort of features do I need to be good at low light levels. Light with scopes 56mm works best but what's the ideal/usual mag and aperture for Binos???

How much have you got to spend if you don't mind me asking Sir?

8 months later I would hope he is sorted. Even my Mrs don't take that long to make her mind up.
