Customer Reviews

Very powerful and well built

Review by Lowjiber | Posted on 8/8/13

This was my first pair of astronomical binoculars.

The light gathering ability of the 70mm aperture is awesome. Even in the somewhat "cluttered light" in aa typical suburban backyard, the moons of Jupiter stand out clearly.

As one would expect, the 25x Magnification gives a small field of view. My next pair of Celestron binoculars will be something in the 10-15x category simply for a wider view of the sky.

The quality is very good and far better than one would expect... given the price point. The carrying case is pretty flimsy, but that's not really an issue for me.

The one warning I offer is that you'll need to mount it on a very sturdy tripod. With the intense magnification, it is all but impossible to hold on an object. I tried a medium sized tripod made for a camera, but it was still too flimsy for comfortable viewing. I ended up getting a very hefty tripod that cost me more than the binoculars... all is well now.

If this is your first venture into the world of celestial viewing with binoculars, I'd recommend a much lower magnification (while sticking with the large aperture).

As usual, Opticsmart delivery was on time with no complaints.
