Granite ED 9x33 Binocular
Celestron Granite ED Series Roof Prism Binoculars are the pinnacle of optical and mechanical design. The fully multi-coated lenses provide maximum light transmission with the highest levels of contrast. This feature also provides superb natural color fidelity and vivid color saturation. The Granite ED 9x33 binocular stands up well against the much more expensive European and higher end Japanese manufactured binoculars at a fraction of their cost - a real value.
Rugged and Lightweight
With its state-of-the-art modern open frame, the style of the Granite ED 9x33 Binocular provides an excellent grip and is comfortable to handle (even single handed) with the reduced weight. The body is made of magnesium alloy which is lighter than aluminum and more rugged and tough for handling in any environment.

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.
Right out of the box I was impressed with the feel and design of these binoculars. The open bridge (pioneered by Swarovski in their very expensive EL series) allowed me to get a very comfortable and secure grip on the pair. The magnesium body felt light but solid. The rubberized finish was very good but not especially great. There is a tripod socket hidden on the front bridge; unscrew the cap and there is a socket that will attach the binos to a tripod using a separately available adapter. I adjusted the interocular distance and set the diopter to suit me and headed into the field the put the Celestrons to the test.
The use of ED glass in binoculars this affordable really impressed me. They provided me with incredible sharpness and very decent color saturation. Although I wear glasses I prefer to view through binoculars without them and the twist-up eyecups gave me a very comfortable view. The image is very bright and the field of view is what I expect from 10x42's (my favorite magnification and lens diameter combination for wildlife observation). The combination of the excellent multi-coating and the ED glass caused colors to stay in register (although I noticed just the tiniest bit of ghosting when looking at something bright red.Read more ›
I own many binoculars already, from midrange pairs to alpha glass, but I was attracted to the 7x33 because it has one of the largest field of views (FOV) available in a binocular. The only other comparable FOV's that I am aware of are the Zen-Ray 7x36 and its sibling, the Eagle Optics Atlas 7x36.
Unfortunately, after getting the diopter adjustment dialed in, it was quickly apparent that the Celestron Granite 7x33 has a very small sweet spot, meaning that the image degrades (gets fuzzy) quickly off-center in the field of view. Away from the center of the field, the view deteriorates to such a degree, that I found it to be very distracting. I cannot recommend the 7x33's at all. You are better off with a 8x pair of binoculars with a larger sweet spot, than a 7x pair which such compromised sweet spot.
The 8x42 variant was ranked very highly in the Cornell binocular review, so if you want a Celestron, I would try that instead. Or if you are on a tighter budget, the Opticron Oregon 8x32 is quite good (main shortcoming being the handling of glare). The Sightron Blue Sky II 8x30 is very well-regarded too.
