Summary: These are the binoculars I carry when I kayak, canoe, or raft. They've been in and under water in the far North Pacific, the Atlantic, the fjords of Southern Chile, Lakes Superior, Ontario, Kabetogama, Yellowstone, and a lot of smaller ones, as well as deep under the Green River and the Colorado River. They're still completely functional. Good optics, good feel in the hand. If you have any interest in bird-watching from a boat, these are what you need.
Great, powerfull and compact binoculars for a nice price

Summary: I bough these to replace my older Meade and Exakta binoculars which require collimation now (image from 2 lenses don't overlap anymore so all objects appear double). Celestron Outland provides great images during day observations (landscape, birds) and when looking at night sky (nice view of moon, can see more stars and some nebulas).
Great find, high value binocular, bright clear optics.

Summary: Really good quality binocular with features found in very expensive models. The eye caps stay attached, via hinged straps. I wear glasses and like the fact the eye cups rotate out of position and don't just fold over. I am very impressed with the clarity of the optics. I also have a pair of Steiner Marine binoculars for use while we're sailing. These fill the bill for high quality, toss in the suitcase, keep in the car, use everyday binoculars. No downsides at all.
Summary: We have been looking for a good pair of lightweight binoculars that wouldn't put us in the poor house. These are the ones! They are lightweight and easy to handle. I would recommend them to anyone!
Summary: Being keen walkers, we have purchased binoculars previously. These binoculars are, by far, the best we have had. The ease of use, build quality, and ultimately the optics, are all excellent. We would recommend these binoculars to anyone looking for a sturdy, well built, mid range binocular.
Summary: I read a few other reviews (not only on amazon) and the binoculars had had some good feedback. A bargain at the full price and a better bargain at the reduced price - brilliant binoculars, excellent views of birds on Hilbre Island, I will be getting another pair as soon as I can. As usual speedy delivery from Amazon - excellent.
Summary: The optics are good enough: a bit of aberration, but nothing serious. The binocular is compact and light. The price is fair. Used it on a couple of occasions for birdwatching. Bought two more from Amazon.it.
