I am very happy with my 10x50.
Price was about €100.

I like my Minolta Standard EZ 8-20X50.
About €200 inc. taxes.

For aircraft overhead at cruiselevel even a 20X may not be enough. You might need a telescope.

I just got a Galileo 10x60 (zoom feature) pair of binoculars for christmas. Although I havent used it as much as I like to (been to cold outside) with spring here, I'll be using it alot more.

Its very hard to get regs of trailing planes unless they are around FL300-320.Have you thought about a telescope?
