Owning a 12" scope i do not have a grab & go option. Ive wanted a set of Binoculars for a while that will give me the grab and go option. Budget £100-200.

Any recommendations?

The 15x70's seem to get good reviews/feedback Rick... I have the 20x80's and whilst they give a great field of view you have to be careful you get a well collimated pair (which sadly mine aren't) and as to be expected for the price the quality of the optics/view is only really any good in the middle half of the image... unlike my dad's birding bino's which are shockingly good to right to the edge but are 15 (yes - 15) times the price !!

Any particular brand or type that stand out from the rest Simon? Or any that are mentioned more as a god set?

Can't say I have that much experience of different brands I'm afraid... mine are Revelation from Telescope House (http://www.telescopehouse.com/acatalog/binoculars.htm).
