I really enjoy these bino's.
2 weeks ago
Summary: Purchased for size and magnification. Land and sky use. My item was not new but slightly used, it arrived and the right eye could not focus sharp. It was repaired by Celestron actually replaced new and I had to have the original receipt. With the help of the seller I got the receipt. They work great, the only thing I recommend is do not treat them tough. These bino's are sensitive and not built tank tough.
Excerpt: I have had these for about a week now they are great for watching birds and whatever but you do need a tripod to watch things with because it is very hard to hold the binoulars still enough to keep the image from shacking other than that they are great for looking at the stars and the moon.
Excerpt: I purchased these for occasional astronomical use. Primarily for looking at the planets, moon and Messier objects. I believe they are made in China for Celestron, however they seem to be of very good quality. You cannot beat the price B&H shipped very quickly and with excellent secure packaging. You have to use a tripod with these binoculars. Spherical aberration is minimal, objects viewed, appeared clear and sharp.
Pros: Quality Lenses, Sharp Images, Strong Construction, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I'm happy with my purchase of these binoculars. The optics are fine and I've enjoyed looking through them. You must have a heavy duty tripod or they are useless - don't expect to hold them in your hands and get a steady view. As you zoom in the focus changes slightly and the field of view narrows considerably. I also have trouble using binoculars in general and often use a single eye. I think I might have been happier spending the same money on a decent spotting scope.
Summary: Bought a pair of these hoping I would get lucky and get a good pair. Turns out I didn't and went through the manufacturer for warranty. 2 months old and have to pay $25 warranty fee plus shipping fee and then had to return them 4 times at their cost and 5 months later have the replacements that are worse then what I had started with. Problems with them is double images when you zoom and the replacements had the same issue and now included rainbow colors.
Excerpt: This binocular is a very powerful instrument for the price.I use it without the zoom, for when zooming, an accurate adjustment is very difficult and seems almost impossible without ghosting and double vision. I would recommend it to a friend.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses
