Great general-purpose binoculars for little $$$. These binoculars are a great deal. I have a telescope as well as giant binoculars for astronomical viewing, but I wanted some binos that I could hold in my hands (the others are too heavy) for general and astronomical use. I read the chapter on binoculars in “The Backyard Astronomer’s Guide” (the ‘bible’ for such things), and they said that 7X50 (7X magnification, 50mm light-gathering lenses) are ideal for general use and perfectly adequate for casual astronomical viewing. I like Celestron products and so I bought these. They are designed for astronomical viewing, but are just as suitable for land-based viewing. The collimation (alignment) of the two barrels is perfect, and the view is crisp and detailed. The lenses are multi-coated (a good thing), and they are solidly built. At around $35, you can’t go wrong. Highly recommended. PS: For those who have never used binoculars before, there is a certain amount that you need to know to get them set up properly for your…

I gambled…. and lost Well…. I bought these bins based on a recommendation from Space.com and Celestron’s reputation (love their telescopes). But I lost the QC lottery. For such an inexpensive pair of bins, I do not expect the top end of everything, of course. The cheap lens covers were expected, and I think the bins’ fit and finish were better than expected at this price point. The glass looks decent, but not amazing, of course. But certainly good for the price point. BUT…. binoculars are meant to be used with two eyes, which means the two light paths have to be aligned. These weren’t. In fact the collimation was absolutely terrible, making it impossible for me to merge the image beyond 10 yards. It’s too bad, since otherwise these very nice for the price. But the one problem I had is the one that makes bins unasble. I returned them (smooth and easy returns via Amazon, as usual) and ordered a pair of Nikon Action Extreme 8×40’s. Yup, they cost several times what these do, so I won;t…
