celestron skymaster 25x70 binoculars

13 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I use these binoculars to occasionally sky gaze. They perform as advertised,but a good tripod is recommended. At 4 lbs, they are just a little too heavy to use without. I had no problem with the focusing procedure--a little time consuming for each individual, but manageable.

  • Excerpt: These binoculars are well made, the barrels seem the be aluminum with s rubber coating,the frame is also metal. The collimation was good on the set I received and the lenses seem to be clear and made from glass no visiable marks or bad spots in the lenses.

Not great but not bad

  • Excerpt: Basically, what I can say is that my Canon Powershot SX50 HS "bridge DSLR" camera at its full telephoto end (1200 mm) provides better magnification and clarity than this binocular. I'm giving this 3 stars because the price is quite reasonable and the product is pretty easy to carry.

Mostly good

Ron, opticsplanet.com
12 February 2013
  • Summary: I use it mostly for astronomy and occasional views of high flying jets with their contrails. When I used the binoculars with the binocular mount, there was so much lateral vibrations that it was just about useless.
  • Pros: Nice views of the heavens; feels like a "space walk"
  • Cons: Flimsy binocular mount

Great Binocular If You Are Using Tripod

Steven G, Adorama
13 December 2012
  • Excerpt: These binoculars are great if you plan on using a tripod to look at very distant objects or celestrial viewing. The image was clear and sharp. They also did well in low light. They are not great for bird watching or hand holding.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Priced Right, Sharp Image
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor Image Stabilization
