About this deal

You get some fantastic, clear and crisp views when looking at the moon, especially if it is large and full, it almost completely filled up my field of view and whilst a tripod was not necessary, it really helps keep the image steady and gives your arms a rest during longer periods. An unbalanced bin is harder to keep steady and will also lead to fatigue over longer periods of use. I would say though that their depth of field seemed good enough, with it never being an issue for me.

In the 1960s, Celestron’s founder, Tom Johnson, created groundbreaking new telescopes never before seen on the consumer market.These Celestron SkyMaster's have ocular lenses that are 23mm in diameter, which is around the same size as the larger ones found on most standard bins. O-ring sealed optics with coating and debris from getting inside the binoculars, which ensures it , durable and provides a firm grip.

This is something that I did detect fairly often and you have to be more careful than those with larger exit pupils to set the IPD (Inter-Pupillary Distance) absolutely right. Unlike many phony reviews out there, I wrote this Celestron SkyMaster 25x70 binocular review after actually using and testing them over many days (and nights in this case), both out in the field and in my office. Sure you get a more stable view using a tripod and possibly people with shaky hands may find it difficult, but I would say that the average fairly fit person should be able to do the same. However, binoculars with this magnification have to be mounted or the wobbly views will make observing uncomfortable and unsatisfying.At 25x magnification, this equates to an apparent field of view of 61 degrees, which is fairly immersive if not super wide. This body shape has been tried and tested over many, many years and is one that makes for a very comfortable holding position that helps prevent fatigue when using bins over longer periods and which also helps you to keep them as still as possible for a shake free image. Celestron SkyMaster 25×70 binoculars offer astronomy enthusiasts an exceptional viewing experience with their extraordinary magnification power and premium optics.
