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: Right i'm going to start with the delivery,i spent that extra few quid to get it as soon as possible because i am impatient lol ordered it on the Tuesday and it arrived the following day... very impressed with that!!
Summary: Always promised myself a pair of these and they perform well. They are - as is only to be expected - heavy. Stability of vision over more than a few seconds is best achieved by using a support surface or a tripod - they are easily mounted by buying the accessory necessary for a few pounds.
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: great to look out at sea with as i live on the coast , i was watching a sea king helicopter training yesterday evening and could see the helicopter fairly clearly from 1mile away approximately .
Summary: Pros: 1- Very easy to use even for a complete amateur, and you can do so almost straight out of the box. 2- Magnification is great (I could make of individual craters on the moon). 3- Well-built and with a sturdy feel.
