Celestron Skymaster 20x80 Review For Starters

Cloudy Nights
16 February 2012
  • Excerpt: My little experience in the astronomy field consists of being and amateur of theoretical astronomy. I have spent almost three years just reading stuff about the Universe, kind of a hobby, kind of with passion. A couple of months ago I decided to take this a step further, and realized that it was time to start gazing, and began to investigate what was the best instrument for a newbie like me.

Celestron 20x80 Binoculars

Cloudy Nights
29 December 2009
  • Excerpt: I’ve been involved in amateur astronomy for some 25 years and have learned that quite often, a good pair of binoculars is indispensable, either as an adjunct to a telescope or, quite often, just used all by itself. I’ve had a variety of both binoculars and telescopes over the years, good and bad, and know their ins and outs fairly well by this time, but as far as binoculars go, I’d been limited to using binoculars in the 35mm to 63mm range, with my main pair being a good...

  • Excerpt: I live in a good observing area, the Pilbara Western Australia, and I already have a 12 * Newtonian. It's a great telescope, but sometimes I don't want to go to the effort of setting it up, so the binoculars are an easy intermdiate level of observing between my eyes and telescope. Very pleased, I should have purchased these along time ago!
  • Pros: portability, user friendly, Good price

Great Binos.for Astro and land use.

  • Excerpt: For their price and size this is a great set of binos. The feel and finish of these binos is excellent. With 2x 80mm lens's it can gather more light than a lot of the smaller telescopes, while being a lot more portable. Having the built in tripod adaptor is handy, as while they are somewhat light it is very easy to get the "shakes" as most of the weight is at the lens end. You will see a marked improvement when using a tripod.
  • Pros: user friendly, Decent glass, Positive adjustments, portable, great first telescope, quality +++, Beautifully crisp image!
  • Cons: May encourage you to buy a big telescope!

A great tool for star gazing

  • Excerpt: This a great buy for scouting the night sky. Has a large 80mm objective lens that picks up faint objects and large FOV that makes it easy to detect where you are. Will get the shakes if observing for a while, or trying to see detail on the moon and planets. A tripod would be handy. Focus control is nice and smooth.
  • Pros: price, Good price, quality +++
