Nikon Binoculars for Astronomy and Nature Watch?

I have been looking at Nikon binoculars but there are too many info to make a decision.

Should I get a 10×50 or 12×50 or 16×50 ? I´d say 16x is better because gives a better magnification but I am worried if it will be too shaky.

Do 16x become too shake for star gazing and nature watch?

Manchester United were playing Birmingham. The atmosphere there was amazing as was to be expected at the first home game of the season !

We learned from our mistakes form last year and took the Nikon binoculars that we bought a couple of months ago.

What a difference they made, it was great to be able to see expressions on the players on the bench and to see Sir Alex Ferguson in all his glory!
