Great for the price

  • Excerpt: You get what you pay for. The optics are outstanding. What I've learned from a previous Celestron purchase is...be gentle. Not built for handling. Keep it on a tripod and go easy. Beyond that, great for wildlife and night sky.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution

  • Summary: I bought 10*40 Nikon binocular 2yrs ago. It has very good quality in sharpness and blightness. but I wanted more magnification so bought this SkyMaster 20*80 with the question about the quality of it. but I am very satisfied with the SkyMaster in sharpness and blightness just as in Nikon, also in cost. So I recommend this item.

  • Summary: This series binoculars are made in china and carry at least 4 other names besides the celestron one. Stay away at all costs. The quality is sub par and makes them quite unusable brand new out of the box and only repairable for twice it's cost. Waste of precious materials.Celestron should be ashamed for putting their name on this terrible product. I tried 3 pairs and all bad. I'm done with these and the company,Never again.

Optically good, but not very robust.

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased two binoculars - a Nikon 10x25 Trailblazer - something small, light and robust to carry around hiking, and a Celestron 20x80 Skymaster for astronomy use.They arrived promptly, which was good, as I was about to go overseas. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to have a look at them before I left...The Nikons were fine, but on unpacking the Celestron I found that it wouldn't focus and the eyepieces fell off!
  • Pros: Great Value For Money, Light For Their Size, Reasonably Good Optically
  • Cons: Not Very Robust

  • Excerpt: Bought these for portability. DEFINITELY not disappointed. Looked at Saturn last night and was amazed. Only problem: they get a little heavy so a tripod is absolutely necessary.

Great Binoculars

  • Summary: These are great binoculars for terrestrial viewing or sky watching. You really need a tripod for celestial viewing. For the price, I think you can't beat them. I use them for terrestrial viewing, as a spotting scope, and for sky watching.
  • Pros: clear optics, easy tripod mount
  • Cons: none
