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"
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
Summary: I was looking for high magnification budget binoculars and these are just the right choice. Since i knew the drawbacks in zoom binoculars i decided to buy these 25x70 Celestron binoculars. The order was delivered nicely and well packed.
Summary: Met my requirements, clean clear vision, great for viewing the coast line and shipping movements, waiting for clear skies to view the moon. Good solid construction well pleased with my purchase.
Summary: These are good quality-- but heavy. You will need a HIGH tripod to really appreciate them or a wall to balance them on. The moon appears in detail and the moons of Jupiter are nearly all visible. The are better that a kids telescope and less hassle.
Summary: These binoculars have given me an impressive view of the stars so far. It needs a tripod if you want really clear and sharp views. You can make out the rings of Saturn and the view of the moon is very impressive. Get a tripod as it comes with an adaptor for one. Happy viewing
