The most powerful binocular in its class, ideal for closer views of terrestrial long distance objects or the Lunar landscape in the night sky. All in all I am very chuffed with these binos, which will get much more use looking for fuzzies later on in the year when darker skies arrive back. ULTRA CLEAR IMAGE – Multilayer-coated aspherical lens elements provide superior light transmission and minimal distortion, better image brightness, contrast, and quality. In the 1960s, Celestron’s founder, Tom Johnson, created groundbreaking new telescopes never before seen on the consumer market.Celestrons SkyMaster Series of large aperture binoculars are a phenomenal value for high performance binoculars ideal for astronomical viewing or for terrestrial (land) use - especially over long distances. As for astronomy, you do get plenty of reach and image detail when compared to most other astro binos that generally have a lower power, but to get this you do sacrifice the width of the view and the smaller exit pupil means that they are not as bright as the lower powered ones or those with larger objective lenses. A higher magnification gives you a further reach and more image detail, but on the flip side, it usually means that your field of view is reduced. Compared to an 8x42 binocular that can have a near focus of around 6ft, the close focus of these seems very far away, but focusing on near objects is not really what these long distance binoculars are about anyway. Perhaps Celestron assume that these will be mounted on a tripod most of the time, but I think the fact that they make such good long distance terrestrial bins and you can hand hold them, means that I think they are missing a trick here.

Unlike many binoculars these days, they are not tethered to the binocular and so you have to remember to put them somewhere safe every time you remove them, so as not to loose them. I had previously owned a pair of the same range smaller magnification binos at 15x70 a couple of years ago but sold them on after slimming down my equipment, and whilst there are certainly better binos out there, I knew that as long as there was no problem with alignment between the two barrels of the binos, then acceptable views where available from them. Celestron™'s SkyMaster Series of large aperture binoculars are a phenomenal value for high performance binoculars ideal for astronomical viewing or for terrestrial (land) use - especially over long distances. Large eyepiece ensures the stability of human imagination, preventing dizziness and eye fatigue after a long time watching. I have a monopod too which I use for quick looks withthe binis, but the tripod is much better for longer more stable views of objects.The overall image also looks nice and flat and stays in focus from the center of the view right until the edges where this minimal softening occurs. I would say though that their depth of field seemed good enough, with it never being an issue for me.

The generous eye relief of 13mm accommodates eyeglass wearers and minimizes eye strain, ensuring a pleasant and immersive skywatching experience. PERFECT EYEPIECE SIZE – 26MM eyepiece size is perfectly designed for the eye structure of America, which provides a broader and clearer vision for birdwatching and other nature explorations. Generally, the higher the Strehl ratio, the lower the Astigmatism and Coma meaning a better image quality from your instrument. This movement is soon canceled out when you place your eyes against the eyecups, but for the most stable view possible, I feel a metal adapter or at least one that was designed to counter this twisting movement would have been better.EASY FOCUS BINOCULARS – These binoculars are very easy to focus and use: Adjust the binoculars to the correct position according to your eyes, then rotate the center wheel to focus. Each SkyMaster model features high quality BaK-4 prisms and multi-coated optics for enhanced contrast. For maximum stability and secure optical alignment, the 80mm and 100mm SkyMaster models feature enhanced structural reinforcement to the main binocular body. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag.

The multi-coating also helps to minimize ghosting and internal reflections, thereby improving overall image contrast. Large 70mm objective lenses for excellent light-gathering capabilities: The binoculars’ large objective lenses are highly praised for their ability to gather ample light. Not the chewy, chocolatey kind sadly but these cookies are useful to help show you relevant content. Perfect binoculars for travel,bird watching, concerts, football game,climbing, hiking, driving, watching wildlife and scenery.However having said that they do just enough and to be honest I would rather see them making cuts in this department than making more sacrifices to the quality of the actual binocular. Made from a soft, flexible plastic/rubber, the objective lens covers fit fairly snugly over the ends of the barrels and so do not come away accidentally too easily. Apart from the fact that they're a really stunning pair of astronomy binoculars to look at, the view is fab too.
