Again a Great Value for Top Quality

Jose the Birder, B&H Photo
27 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I am convinced that the name Celestron is the best kept secret when it comes to top quality binoculars. I have owned two Celestron telescopes that have given me great joy and satisfaction for many years because of their optical quality known the world over. Why not try their binoculars?
  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Waterproof

Easy to Use

Jayhawk, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I love these binoculars! They are easy to use and easy to focus. Great value. The image is clear and bright. I wear glasses and found that this is the first pair of binoculars that I do not have to remove my glasses to use. I use these for birding on a daily basis. They bring in bird details from a near distance to across the lake.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Quality Lenses, Works Well With Glasses

AFFORDABLE BINOCULAR THAT DELIVERS

Soundpix, B&H Photo
12 February 2015
  • Excerpt: WE HAVE TWO PAIR OF THESE BINOCULARS. THE COMBINATION OF WIDE FIELD OF VIEW AND STEADY IMAGE IS UNBEATABLE. WHAT YOU EXPECT IN A VERY EXPENSIVE BINOCULAR IS EDGE TO EDGE SHARPNESS, FINE DETAIL OF MACHINING, WATERPROOFING, ANTIFOGGING, LGHT WEIGHT, AND BEAUTY. THIS IS NOT AN EXPENSIVE BINOCULAr. It's from people who have been making precision affordable telescopes for decades.

Great field of view

Forest, B&H Photo
28 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Compared to my old Meade 8-24x50, the field of view of this Celestron Granite is much larger at 8x. The build is solid, and the images are sharp and contrasty.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution

Great Gift

Race Watching Don, B&H Photo
14 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I gave these to my husband as a gift. He has already used them at a Nascar race and to watch ships sail the Chesapeake Bay. He wears bifocals and the Celestron Granite binocular has worked well with his glasses on or off. They are a bit heavier than he would like, but thats a testament to their quality construction. They arrived very quickly and were packaged well. I have always been happy with my purchases from this seller.
  • Pros: Wide Angle Viewing

Excellent value optics -sharp and bright

Sam, B&H Photo
20 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I use these binoculars primarily for birdwatching. I also own a pair of Nikon 8x42 Monarch 5 binoculars, which I also like. They are on par in terms of optical quality (both being bright and sharp). Notwithstanding the extra goodies that come in the box, I give a slight edge to the Celestron Granite because it feels more natural to hold (in my case) and its operations are very smooth (especially when adjusting the interpupillary distance). This is truly a hidden gem!

They are fantastic binoculars. The picture is very crisp and bright ...

Dr C., Amazon
31 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought these for bird watching on the recommendation of reviews. They are fantastic binoculars. The picture is very crisp and bright - in fact on a dull day the image seems brighter when viewed through the binoculars. They are compact and comfortable to hold and carry and seem well protected. The only criticism I have is that one of the front lens covers became detached from its fastening without me noticing and I have lost it.

5 star plus optics and build quality

Mr. M. B. Landeryou, Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: The title of this review says it all. When compared too my old set of bino's (a cheap pair of bresser 8x45 for about £50 if I remember correctly) the optics on these granite bino's make the old set look as if you are looking at something on a misty day. I kid you not! The details in the tiles of a house roof are stunning, making these bino's very useful for checking the condition of any roof tiles/brickwork/satellite dish very easy.
