Celestron SkyMaster 15x70 Binocular
2 weeks ago
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.
Excerpt: The tripod stand holder is not centered. center of weight is far front than the tripod stand so that it tends to lean to front. This results shaking left and right when using normal camera tripod. It made me feel motion sick even though I just observed Jupiter stand still.
Pros: Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: Sturdy while fairly light weight. Easily customized to your unique vision. Brings birds, animals, etc. close-up and three dimensional. Keeps iin focus while tracking fast moving objects, birds, boats, racers, etc. Holds focus sp you spend your time observing rather than adjusting.
