Great bino's, but needed to be collimated

21calkins21, Ebay
4 June 2014
  • Summary: Awesome set of bino's! I got these thinking a tripod was 'recommended' and that i'd just hand hold these but the tripod is heavily recommended. These came not properly collimated (i saw double images) so I had to order a jewelers screwdriver from ebay to collimate these. I just got around to it and almost fixed it and will fix them after finals. Once collimated, these will be amazing!

Great for night sky

  • Excerpt: Excellent light-gathering for star gazing, plus the right magnification to allow use without tripod when seated (not standing). It comes with a tripod mount if you chosoe to use one. I can clearly see open clusters, asterisms, Jupiter's Galilean moons, and bright nebulae. I saw one of the brighter globular clusters as well.

FANTASTSIC BINOCULARS FOR THE PRICE

randywhite2013, Ebay
7 April 2014
  • Summary: As with any on line shopping you rely on positive reviews before making any such purchase decisions. I wanted the best visual power binoculars that could give me clear crisp views of the night sky and terrestrial objects. I thought that such binoculars would be way more expensive than what my budget would allow but found the Celestron Sky Master 15x70's on ebay for way less than even lower spec expensive branded units in my local camera shops here in Australia.

Mine work great

  • Excerpt: My primary use is astronomy, but also enjoy bird watching. The negative reviews about poor collimation, etc., are probably accurate for those PARTICULAR units and they should be returned. Hey folks, ANYBODY can have a bad production run and these poorly performing units are probably a result of a bad run. Mine work great and a fellow retired health care professional who has a similar pair also loves his.

Great budget binoculars

James, B&H Photo
24 March 2014
  • Excerpt: These are great binoculars for bird walks. The focus control is very fine, and everything looks very 3 dimensional. Color and contrast is better than expected for such an inexpensive item. The view is very bright. The only downsides are objects have to be pretty far away to focus on them (but that's stated in the specs so I knew to expect it) and they are large compared to the 10x50s I have.
  • Pros: Economical, Lightweight, Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Bulky

Watch our Heaven, here I come

Harvey, B&H Photo
2 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I use my Celestron binocular to look at our property. I am in charge of our building on the co-op and people sometimes leave gates open which is an infraction. I do not have to go out now and check them manually and can just look from my window which saves a lot of in and out. I LOVE looking at the moon and keep my eyes open for any accidents here on our streets - especially with the snow and ice we had.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
  • Cons: Bulky, Heavy

Desert Skies, B&H Photo
11 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Bought these for a sky watching trip to the desert. Pleased with the optic quality for the losw cost. The case left a little to be desired. Really don't quite fit and no pocket to put the tripod adapter so it is left to bounce around in the case.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Cheezy Case
