Some things about binoculars that Iï¿½ve learned are as you "zoom" in with some as they have a magnifier less light is able to be let in thus making you image a lot darker. Also when you try to see something so small and you are magnifying so much every little movement you make is magnified. Very shaky unless you rest your arms on a table. I donï¿½t have access to my binoculars to get the specs, but those are just two problems I notice.

I would like to know if there are handy binoculars available to watch planes flying at full altitude, say FL350.
I am looking for binoculars that is strong enough to spot and recognize a plane type and airline flying in clear sky when it is passing over my city.
When I watch planes crossing in clear blue sky, I wonder what airline could it be.
The model and price etc will be more helpful.
Any suggestions or help will be appreciated.

I'm not sure about them losing light as you magnify.

would recommend a spotting scope like the ones bird watchers use, and have a tripod.
