Clear, Crisp and lightweight I love the outdoors and have had many sets of binoculars. I am a boater and a target shooter. Over the years I cannot even calculate the amount of money I have spent on numerous pairs. After this purchase that has ended, this will be my last pair. I made this purchase on a friends recommendation.

they suffer from 1 very serious design flaw as well as poor quality control in regard to collimation (optical alignment) This is one of the most affordable, waterproof/fogproof, 15×70 binoculars (with a central focus knob) that I have seen. However, they suffer from 1 very serious design flaw as well as poor quality control in regard to collimation (optical alignment). 

Amazon Customer says:

Poor Support I purchased the Calvary 15X70 binoculars (item 71426) with great anticipation to improve my celestial viewing experiences. Unfortunately, they came with a collimation (i.e. alignment) issue. For example, the double star in the handle of the “Big Dipper” showed up as 4 stars. Through Amazon, it was suggested that I contact Celestron directly. I did. The phone message for Celestron technical support last Friday morning indicated “We are closed for a company event”. I got the same message for that afternoon. So, I left a message in their web site and got a confirmation code last Friday. I got the same response to telephone contact on Saturday and Sunday. This morning (9-16-2013) I called again and got the same message. And, there has been no follow up from their web site as of noon today.
