Excerpt: I bought these binoculars about a year ago and the first pair I received were so far out of collimation they were unusable. Not wanting to try to repair them myself because of the possibility of damaging them, I contacted Celeston customer support who gave me a shipping label to return them and told...
Summary: I recently became involved in astronomy, starting on 10X50 binoculars. I have since acquired 3 telescopes, 76mm, 80mm and 203mm. I use binoculars for quick observing sessions where setting up a telescope would be inconvenient.
Excerpt: Binoculars were bought for astronomical use. Arrived in good collimation, nice coatings on lenses, good optics. Not high end binoculars but a bargain for the price.Included tripod adapter is plastic, bends and shakes; I threw it away and bought an all metal adapter for $ that is much more stable.
Pros: Arrived In Collimation, Good Lens Coating, Good optics, Quality Lenses, Relatively Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Only used a few times so far. Overall agree with the other comments. Optics are good (probably not outstanding, but nice enough for astronomy). Milky Way in Cygnus was really nice. Saw multiple Messier objects with the open clusters making the best views.
