celestron’s SkyMaster Series of large aperture binoculars are a phenomenal value for high performance binoculars. Ideal for astronomical viewing or for terrestrial (land) use, especially over long distances. SkyMaster models feature high quality BAK-4 prisms and multi-coated optics for enhanced contrast. celestron has designed and engineered the larger SkyMaster models to meet the special demands of extended astronomical or terrestrial viewing sessions.Seeing is believing with the Celestron 72022 Ultima DX 8 x 56 waterproof binoculars. The Ultima Series has always been one of Celestron’s most highly respected line of binoculars. It’s hard to believe, but with the newly redesigned Ultima DX Series, outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes will find even greater value.

Combining superb optics, quality construction, and affordability, the Ultima DX series is perfect for the serious bird watcher who demands a binocular that is lightweight and easy to use, or the outdoor enthusiast who relies on rugged durability and resistance to the elements.

The new design elements of the Ultima DX Series include a waterproof body, shock-resistant rubber covering, and twist-up eyecups. Ultima DX binoculars provide superb image quality with BAK-4 prisms, fully multi-coated optics, diopter adjustment for sharp focusing, and they are super lightweight for their aperture size. With long eye relief for comfortable viewing and an excellent depth of field that provides a good overview without the need for constant refocusing, all Ultima DX models are excellent for all kinds of long distance viewing. And with large fields of vision, these binoculars are well-suited for astronomical and other low-light observation. It’s simply hard to imagine a set of binoculars with these many outstanding features in such a durable yet lightweight design.

The Celestron 72022 features an 8x magnification and an objective lens diameter of 56 millimeters, giving it a 7-millimeter exit pupil. (The exit pupil size — the diameter of the objective lens divided by the magnification — determines the amount of light available to your eye. The larger the exit pupil, the brighter the image obtained will be. A three-millimeter exit pupil is generally sufficient for daytime use, five-millimeters is suitable for daytime and twilight, and seven-millimeters is generally necessary for maximum nighttime or astronomy use.) All Ultima DX Series models also come with Celestron’s No Fault Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Celestron makes great binoculars, period I really have to take issue with the reviewer who claimed that all Celestron products are crap. That is a blanket statement that just doesn’t hold water. No doubt he had a bad experience and is unhappy, but as a life-long binos lover and owner of 3 different pairs of Celestron binos, I could not disagree more!

Best value………… I have used these binoculars for nearly two months now, under varying conditions. Mostly for astronomy. I have found them exceptional in clarity, with no distortions or abherrations that I could detect. I have also been using these aboard a boat for searching channel markers and lights…they are absolutely unexcelled used in that function.Although not petite, they are very comfortable and easily held for extended periods , even for my wife who is no weight-lifter.Dollar for dollar I rank these equal to some binoculars I have used that cost twice as much. The case and strap are cheap crap, but that is small payment for the excellence of the instrument itself.

Great Grab-and-go Stargazing Binos I have been using my Celestron 9x63s for over a year now and they are great binoculars. I take them everywhere with me. Very easy to adjust and good eye relief makes them very comfortable and user-friendly. There is a reason Celestron has stuck with this design for so long- it works, and it’s economical. No, these won’t compare with a top-end set of binoculars, but you won’t pay top-end price, either. In my opinion, these are the best bang for the buck, and I’ve had no issue with collimation on my optics. If I had anything to complain about it would be the low, flat eye-cups, which allow a lot of stray light in from the sides. However, if you wear glasses, this might be an advantage for you. Bottom line, I highly recommend these binoculars!PROS: Quality for the price, Solid feel, large objective lenses. Great entry-level binos.CONS: Eye-cups
