Excerpt: You'll notice on the photo that it has a base with a pressure nipple, which functions as a type of spring washer. That is the reason why I filled in the bottom cavities on the Skymaster adaptor, to prevent the nipple getting ripped off as the adaptor get screwed on. Excellent value for money. The vision at the extreme ends of view (if you ever look at something on the edge of the field of view) does lose some clarity. But has no real effect on the main view.
Perfect for beginner, but will use throughout all aspects of stargazing.

Excerpt: My only problem, and not a criticsm of the binoculars themselves, is getting a stable image. I build a small bracket that slots between the mount and the tripod and is fixed to one lense tube with velcro. Perfectly stable. I am staggered at the clarity and number of objects I can see. Much more than I expected. I'm very happy with the 15x70 binoculars. And even happier with the service level.
Excerpt: Nice quick delivery, very well packed. The 15x70s had a nice solid feel about them. Focused on hill out the back, approx 1.5km, focus was a little akward to carry out at first but easily sorted with practice. That night I focused on Jupiter nice bright image, but I could not hold the 15x70s steady enough, Jupiter was doing figure of eights and bobbing about. Same story with the stars easy to find but even braced or seated, I could not get a steady image.
Pros: easy to carry, portability, light weight, Good price, quality +++, Beautifully crisp image!
Excerpt: Awesome pair of binoculars. Best in the market for a beginner in my opinion, worth every dollar and then some. I know I'm supposed to be reviewing the binoculars themselves but I also want to say that the service was amazing from Ozhut. Emails were swiftly replied and the delivery was incredibly fast, I remember thinking about the parcel "what could this be? It's way too soon to be the binoculars...". I will definitely recommend this website to friends.
Pros: easy to carry, price, portability, user friendly, great first telescope
Excerpt: Celestron SkyMaster 15x70 Binocular are awesome, providing big bang for buck for beginner binocular astronomy. 70mm gathers lots of light and theyre are surprisingly lightweight for their size and a joy to handle. There are slight slight color and focus aberrations around the edges of the field of view - but these are insignificant. A Tripod is HIGHLY recommended to fully appreciate these binoculars also.
Pros: light, easy to carry, price, portability, light weight, user friendly, Good price, Decent glass, Cheap, portable, quality +++, Beautifully crisp image!
