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: Love the binoculars. The tripod is a must. They are heavy but what you can see through them it's amazing. I stumbled into Rigel while star gazing. 770 light years away. Beautiful green, blue and red lights from this beautiful star.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Great Introduction to Astronomy

  • Excerpt: I use these binoculars to help my grand daughter with her interest in starts and planets. Once set up on the tripod we were treated to an exciting clear view of the night sky. Most notable was the ability to see three of Jupiter's moons distinctly.
  • Pros: Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult To Focus

Though not perfect, this is a good entry level binocular for the money.

  • Summary: I bought this after purchasing a Mead telescope. I dabble in astronomy at the amateur level and heard binoculars were vastly underrated as a tool. So far, the cold and overcast skies have limited their use in my area. The Skymaster is a good product, well suited for gazing upward, although there are even better makes if you can pony up the cash. I particularly like the built on tripod attachment which is quite versatile.

Celestron 20x80

  • Summary: I had read numerous reviews of these binos being out of collimation but took a chance. They seemed well made and gave me outstanding views of the moon but once I started looking a stars I was getting doubles, I was very disappointed and sent them back. Now I'm afraid to order giant binos and went back to using my Nikon 10x50's. It's a nice product so why doesn't Celestron address this issue?
  • Pros: good value
  • Cons: arrived out of collimation
