Celestron Granite 10X50 binoculars As a retired NASA photographer I have used different binoculars for years. Recently my Celestron 7X56 binoculars had the outside surface of the binoculars crack and completely deteriorate. It was several years before I found the guarantee for them, a CELESTRON LIFE TIME WARRANTY!I sent them to Celestron asking for a comparable pair of binoculars. They no longer manufacture the 7X56’s. They sent me the Granite 10X50 binoculars and I was stunned. They cost almost three times what the original binoculars had cost and are literally light years ahead of the old binoculars. I have never seen a binocular that can touch them. Sharp as a tack from side to side and a brilliant field of view.So keep in mind that you get a LIFE TIME GRARANTEE when you buy the Celestron brand.

Celestron 8×42 Granites I first saw the Granite binoculars at the British BirdFair. I was very impressed and when I returned to the States I acquired a pair. I am an active birder and I love the Granites. They are not a true compact binocular but they are relatively small and light weight. The image is bright and clear all the way to the edge of the lenses. They have a wide field of view, over 400 ft, and a close focus distance of 6.5 feet – good for birders. Image quality and brightness very comparable to much more expensive brands, at least to my eyes.

Don’t be fooled by the low price for this item First of all, I must state that I am particularly pleased with the great selection and the top class service from Amazon. I have been an Amazon customer for several years now and this is my very first review. Thanks to those who had sent in their reviews which had guided me in the past. I wish to contribute with my own first review. This is an exceptionally top class performer. It is light in weight, feels very good in the hands, top quality and the image is exceptionally good for its low price. I am very happy to have made this choice and will highly recommend it. I had evaluated this against the top brands of binoculars in the market for astronomy including those in the several thousand dollar price range but eventually settled for this not because it was inexpensive but because I was looking for the best and I had found it.
