Excerpt: After reading many online reviews and comparing prices and features, I settled on the Celestron SkyMaster 25 x100 for its lenses, its magnification and its price. These are not for taking on a trail. They are large and heavy - a little clunky-looking actually- and require a steady tripod.
Excerpt: I purchased my Celestron 25 x 100 binoculars from B &H and mounted them on a tripod rated for 10 lbs. I use them for astronomy and can see ORION and the Horsehead nebula very well as well as the moons that orbit Jupiter and the rings around Saturn.
Excerpt: I shoot High Power rifle. At 600 yards the spotting disc appears to be right in front of you. The Great Galaxy in Andromeda is awesome! Mars, Antares, Betelgeuse, and Mars all look like red stoplights. A full moon view is fantastic and nearly blinding.
Pros: Great for casual user, M31 and M33 UP C LOSE, Quality Lenses, Sharp vision to lens edge, Strong Construction, Well worth the low price, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: Weight and bulk are the downsides. But unless you have $125,000 dollars to buy the Fujinon in this class....Yes there are better products in this class, but unless you are very serious and spend a lot of lens time, these will do just fine for 99+% of users.Now, if we can just get some clear night...
Pros: For most hell of a deal, No Not 125000 Fujinon, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Very good at price point, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift. He wanted some good binoculars for star and planet gazing at night. Reviews told me these were the correct choice, and they were right.They are heavy and a bit unwieldy, but a good tripod will sort that out right quick.
Excerpt: I bought these for my son instead of a first telescope, and I'm glad I did! Collimation out of the box was perfect. Great views of the moon, as well as Jupiter and Saturn. Great for open clusters, ok on the brighter globulars. FOV is a bit narrow and they are heavy.
Excerpt: These binoculars 25x100 were the most powerful i could find in my price range, more powerful are way more money. I am very happy with them, they have crystal clear viewing, i can see the moons of Jupiter pretty well. They are not tellascopes so don't expect to see the flag on the moon.
