  • question: i’d like to make sure i’ll be able to study the solar before i buy those binos. Any tailor-made sun filters for this version? If now not,any guidelines? Tks answer: you’ll need to search for any motive made filters. Lacking those, when you have a sun filter out for a telescope, mine for an 8” celestron c8, you may create a homemade mount to hold that filter in the front if the binos.

      Since I’ve bought these I find myself breaking these out more than my telescope . If your looking to get into astronomy or simply just tired of lugging around your big bully telescop for a short star gazing sessions these are worth checking out . You can make out jupiters moons , Saturn’s ring , orion nebula , andromeda galaxy and many other objects with the binoculars. Read more

      Just Wonderful Binoculars. … The Right Eyepiece remains in place where you focus/adjust it (in other words it and the main focus-adjuster are stiff to turn/adjust and stay in place like they both should be). … .At 20x Power + 5lbs … use a Tripod for the Best Enjoyment. … I like this binocular so well that I just ordered a 2nd pair of “Celestron 20×80 SkyMaster Pro” binoculars, an “Orion Tritech II Field Tripod with Fluid Pan Head”, a “Messier Observer’s Planisphere”, and a “Guide to the Stars” for my two grand-kids as their 1st Telescope. On the 1st clear night with these 20×80 binoculars mounted on a tripod, I am able to see Jupiter and clear separation of 4 of its largest moons … and with two eyes. From what I saw through these binoculars, I would not recommend any more powerful binocular because Jupiter would then more quickly fall out of view … due to the rotation of the Earth. Read more

      Great binoculars for the price. I actually ordered these AND the Oberwerk’s 20x80LW to compare them side by side. They are both equally good. Celestron’s have a warmer (yellowish) color to them (compared to the crisper bluish color of Oberwerks), and are about 95% sharp edge to edge. The focus is smooth. They are considerably heavier than Oberwerks, but at that size that’s expected. Get a solid tripod for these, entry level ones will NOT do!!! The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because I did the comparison with Oberwerk’s. Had I had no point of reference I’d give it 5. Read more

      Everything about these binos I loved. They should be the max size binos for astronomical purpose without upgrading your tripod. Land viewing was perfect as well. With the help of smaller roof binos, you can see most globular clusters. I even saw Bode’s Galaxy and Cigar Galaxy (M81 and M82). Very dim, but you can make it out Read more

      My whole life I always wanted a giant pair of bincoluars. But they were so expensive. These are affordable. The quality is good with just a few minor issues. The eyecups come off too easily. Might could be replaced with some better ones though. There is a little bit of discoloration/distortion right on the very edge of the field of view but it is negligible. You can see a bit of that in my photo. Overall they are a really good set of bincoluars though. When I look through them I am constantly amazed at what I see. My photo is not as good as what my eyes see looking through these because of issues with the camera more than the binoculars. Read more

      I really wanted to like these. The fit and finish is very good with rubber coating to prevent dings. The diopter, eyepieces and tripod bar worked very well with close tolerances but not too tight. So, what’s the problem? First, it had way too much color for daytime use. I would have been more than happy to have paid twice the price for better glass. I had a pair of Celestron 11×80 bins during the 80’s that were made in Japan, they were incredible, so, I know what a good pair should look like. Also, they arrived collimated but I still had a tough time getting them to focus sharply…just not acceptable images. Also, they came poorly packed like someone returned them before and they resent them to me. If I’m buying new, I want new. Also, they are listed as 4.5 pounds but they weighed 5.4 pounds on my food scale which I know is accurate. In their favor, I measured prism clipping with a flashlight and they measured a full 80mm. This is Celestron’s top binocular in this size. So, my other alternative is Oberwerk’s 20×80’s. Their lightweights I already know have too much color and their Oberwerk 20x80mm Deluxe III is a triplet and weights a whopping 7lbs, way more weight than I wanted………..back to the drawing board.

      Binoculars work great! Must have a tripod. I purchased the Celestron red dot locator and loved it! Worth the $12 to be able to find what you want to see so easily! Read more

      Original pair ordered was improperly collimated. Celestron replaced them and verified collimation at no cost to me (shipping too). 5 weeks required for replacement. Requires firm elbow support to stabilize when holding by hand as these are high magnification. Mounting adapter works well with tripod or dovetail adapters. Chromatic aberration noticeable in high contrast daylight viewing. Light gathering ability good for messier objects Read more
