Celestron SkyMaster 12×60 Binocular 71007 BinocularsWhen it’s time to gaze at the stars or take in some long-distance or low-light terrain viewing, look no further than the Celestron 71007 SkyMaster 12 x 60 binoculars. Featuring high quality BAK-4 prisms, multi-coated optics for enhanced contrast, a diopter adjustment for fine focusing, and large apertures, these binoculars offer phenomenal performance.

The Celestron 71007 features a 12x magnification and an objective lens diameter of 60 millimeters, giving it a 5-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.) The Celestron 71007 also includes a tripod adapter and Celestron’s No Fault Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Good Binocular I received my Celestron 12 x 60mm binoculars yesterday, and I have to say that I was a little disappointed at first. I looked up at Jupiter and I could see little specs for the moons, but the problem was that I saw two of everything. The collimation was really bad making astronomy use nearly impossible. I searched the web on how to collimate binoculars and found a couple of sites. I held the binoculars up pointed at a star and turned the collimation screws (once I found them) and was finally able to get them fixed to one point.Now with the collimation done, I am able to see what I want. I am definitly able to see Jupiter’s moons. I can also see the Andromeda Galaxy and several star clusters. For little money this makes a good complement to my telescope.I would recommend the binoculars, but for astronomical use, be prepared to collimate.

Great Binocs for the price Excellent field of view especially with eye cups collapsed, super sharp when adjusted, just enough power for longe range viewing without the shake, recommend very highly

Good for the price UPDATE 25 November 2015: If you have any problems, Celestron support is excellent! Also, if you breath and have a pulse, you are going to need a way to steady them. I use a tripod and a VITE Fully Metal Binocular Tripod Adapter 1/4 Inch Threading. I am happy with the adapter.
