I saw a pair of USSR made binoculars today in a pawnshop.  I had a look at
them.  They were reasonable optics but quite knocked about and well
overpriced.  I did not note the brand but was intrigued by the
specifications.  They read "99990 X 6830"  and "8m at 280000m".

Can anyone translate this into figures I can understand?  I have just about
worn out my pencil trying to calculate what these figures mean.
