I am just getting into star gazing. I read about 100 reviews saying to get binos before buying a telescope. Noted. The binos do exactly what they are supposed to do, but it not good for doing what I had in mind (planet watching).

Now I use them in addition to my spotting scope to find what I really want to look at with my telescope (Orion Spaceprobe 130mm). They work great for that.

I will say they worked great for looking at the moon.

These are good binoculars. Apart for branding (CElestron) these are a decent instrument. If what you like is to view some stars and cluster, these are for you! good picture, high contrast for the aperture, and good weight..

The contrast was great. The weight is what you could expect from a 10x50. It feels quite sturdy and solid. Has underneath the cap at front, a thread-in for a tripod mount. One cool thing I like about this over others is the 2nd tuning adjustment for fine tuning. Haven't seen that on any binoculars (but I haven't owned many either). Alright, to the bad part. The fine tuning adjustment is actually on the right eye piece, so when fine tuning, you're twisting the rubber cushion on your eye socket. The 2nd bad part. The rubber eye cushions just have a edge to them that just kind of digs in. Does not feel real soft either on the eye sockets. It is rubber though, so I am sure there could be a fix to this. I might try smoothing down the cushions a bit. Also after reading online you can buy eyecups aka eye shields which are the rubber cushions. If you can replace these, these binoculars would be great. This is my first day of owning them.

It's hard to believe that Celestron offers these binoculars at such a low price. This is my second pair from Celestron through Amazon, the first being 7 X 35, also at a great price. Based on the satisfaction of the 7 X 35's, I purchased the 10 X 50's to use with a binocular/mirror setup I have for amateur astronomy. The binoculars are easy to use, have a nice field of view, and lend themselves to a quick setup for my purposes. In my estimation, these binoculars work as well as some that are much more expensive. Although there have been some negative comments about the quality of the product, I have not had that experience with either pair of binoculars I have purchased. They seem to be well made, and you can't beat the price.

When I ordered these I was looking for a general purpose glasses that would give good variety of focal ranges. I took a chance on these because of price (not too much invested if they didn't work out) I am well pleased with these!A great product for the price. They work extremely well at all focal lenghts and I made a good buy.
P.S I don't think you should write a review if your glasses arrive already broken.A bad Break for the buyer but more of shippers fault than product.

Update: After owning these for over a month, I finally figured out why they give the same resolution as my 7x35 binoculars. The focus wheel on these is loose. Lightly pushing on the eyepieces makes the wheel turn. So any time I try to look at Saturn, it slides just out of focus. The out of focus is not noticeable other than that I don't see more detail than the 7x35 shows. Also, sometimes I see slight double vision, though it is single most of the time. I've not had any headaches. Because of these two findings, I'm reducing it from 5 stars to only 4 stars.
-------------------------------------------------------

I bought a pair of Celestron wide view 10x50, model number 71174 from Target. Their price was $35. I can't find them anywhere online, but they look just like these ones, and I suspect they were only changed in name to this new model. They advertised all the same specs, including a 367 ft @ 1000 yds viewing angle. I don't want my inspection going to waste, so I'm leaving my report here.

I pointed them at the big dipper, and the two pointer stars fit just inside with 10% left over, indicating the field of view is 6.5 degrees, not 7.

The lens covers snap on securely, the field is clear and easy to focus, and the magnification is a true 10x. I could see the very center of the bulge of the Andromeda galaxy better at 10x than with my Tascos at 7x, in July though a city light dome. When looking at lit up buildings at night, and cars from side view, they do not seem to darken the image at all; if I did not know better, I would think they make the image a bit brighter or easier to see, same as the Tascos.

I wanted a cheap pair of binoculars for astronomy, something inexpensive that worked. That doesn't always happen! However, I'm pleased with these binoculars. Good viewing, easy focus, and at the price I paid, I won't be upset if I break or lose them. Hopefully that won't happen! Good optics, nice heft, but not too heavy to wear out your arms. I'd definitely recommend.
