Hi Warren, I've used my daughter's on many occasions, and can say that the
stabilising works A.1. Jupiter is wandering all over the place, press the button,
and there it is steady, for you to peruse. If you want them primarily for astro
I recommend getting the 12x36 or 42, a bit more aperture and magnification is always good. Whatever you are looking at at 12x I.S. is great. I love my stabilised lenses too, great when a tripod is not available. Just saw Dunk's post, yes the 15x 50 are obviously preferable for
astro to the smaller sizes that I mentioned, but as Dunk said, they are heavy, they are also much bulkier. Your choice.
