Summary: Haven't really tested them out during hunting season but looking through them looks like high def! Would have rated higher if I really had a chance to test them out good. They are kinda heavy but seems to be solid good quality.
Excerpt: you sent my binocular without the tripod adapter<br />I am disabled with limited use of my right hand.<br />The only way for me to use the binocular was with the tripod that i own and the adapter you were to supply.Said right in the add tripod adapter included.
Summary: I have several pair of binoculars and can state with confidence that these are terrific binoculars for the price. Realize that these are large frame and while not heavy, they aren't light either. That's because they're astronomical binoculars-- most usersuse a tripod and adapter both to deal with the weight over extended viwing, as well as to reduce or eliminate the shake that comes from trying to use bino's higher than 8x or 10x by hand.
Excerpt: I had purchased some inexpensive 20 x 70mm bino's a while back [...] and found these Celestrons to have a more precise focus and just as much power==also would like to try the 15 x 70mm's at some point down the road. I can see passing jets' tails better with the 12 x 60mm's than with the inexpensive 20 x 70mm's. These are fairly good scopes for bird watching too.
Pros: Good Eye Relief, Quality Lenses, Works Well With Glasses
