I am looking for a good set of zoom binoculars that will mount on a stand that I can use for spotting (100-300 yards)... I would prefer to keep them under $200 if possible. The more powerful the better... would be nice to use them for astronomical viewing as well. Suggestions? Thanks!

Canon image stabilized binocs. The stabilized feature really helps to spot movement. Cost runs from $360 for 8x25 ranging to $1320 for 18x50 on Amazon. I've used the 8x25 for years for bird watching -really stabilized image. Some models are touted as "All Weather". Well worth the price.
