First of all, people need to understand: When ordering binoculars online, especially ones in this range, you are taking the chance you will get a bad pair. Between the factory and the shipping to your door, there's a chance the pair you get WILL BE OUT OF COLLIMATION. This means you will see double and never get a merged focused image. In other words, they'll be useless. If you read through reviews that's the main complaint people have and they conclude the binoculars "just suck". However, it seems the number of bad are outweighed by the number of good ones people received. And Amazon is really good at returns and exchanges, so you really just stand to lose time and convenience having to make the return if they are out of collimation. Having said that...

Since my main use is for stargazing I already had gotten the 15x70 SkyMaster, which is also an excellent pair for the price. But because of their size, for hand-held use they can be difficult to use. I can manage pretty well, but my wife definitely had a harder time, so I took a chance with these. Having taken the collimation gamble with the SkyMasters and being a pessimist, I wasn't expecting my luck to be good twice in a row. But these also arrived in collimation and focused just fine. After the relief of that, the second thing I noticed was how much easier they were to hold, and therefore, how much better and stable the image was. Using them at night was just as easy. Between their size and lower magnification I was able to focus in on objects a lot easier than with the SkyMasters. My wife also found them MUCH easier to use. The image is not as close or as bright, but for hand held use the stability of the smaller one wins.

My wife initially scoffed at my plan on purchasing these binoculars because of the low price. After some research, I defined the attributes that I was desiring. Next, I searched through the plethora of binocular manufacturers and their products. I came across the Celestron UpClose G2 and did some additional digging (it has many features that are available on the higher-end binoculars) - there was also an interesting youtube video someone had made using the UpClose G2. I was rather amazed so I ordered them. I handed them to my wife just after I received them and she was very much impressed and surprised by the clarity and quality of these binoculars.

Pros - great clarity, extremely powerful, easy grip and focus

Cons - not moisture resistant, low depth of field and viewing area.

At about 150 ft the field of view is only about 30ft and the depth of field is about 10ft so you are constantly focusing.

Closest view point is about 30ft which I probably should have gotten 8X for the back yard.

I left them outside one evening and they were fogged up with moisture inside that took almost a week to clear up. Suppose to be moisture resistant?

Great clarity. The optics are great and very clear.

I originally purchased the Celestron Outback 10x42, but had to return it due to a defect. Replacements were out of stock, so I research more and decided to go with the Celestron UpClose G2 10x50. Honestly, I can't tell the difference in visual clarity or quality between the two (even though the Outback is supposed to have Bak4--better quality prisms). These binos feel really solid, have a nice protective rubber layer and comfortable shape, and the 10x50 provides a nice, wide view that lets in plenty of light. For most people, a 10x magnification is more than enough (gets pretty shaky as you increase magnification). These are a little heavy and not super portable, but still comfortable.

These are not high end binoculars. The strap and case are cheesy, the front caps fall off and the rear caps are hard to put on. The first time I replaced the rear lens caps I was surprised when the eyepieces moved. The arm that supports them is plastic. The eye relief is not all that great, so when wearing glasses you can't quite see the full field of view even with the eye cups folded down.

However, for my purpose they are fine. I have a nice pair of 7x35 binoculars, but I wanted something with larger objective lenses for star gazing. These are great for that. Collimation of mine is spot on and the image is sharp and clear. There is a noticeable improvement in brightness and detail over my other pair. The rubbery covering feels good, and they don't weigh much more than my 7x35. Focusing is nice and smooth.

Instead of the case and caps, I keep them in a plastic bag on a shelf. Not fancy, but functional. The strap I can live with. With care, I believe they will last a long time. And, if I drop them, it's not the end of the world. That's nice when you're fumbling around in the dark.

I can see why some folks receive damaged binoculars. The manufacturer's box is not designed for shipping. There is just a thin strip of foam in the bottom. Amazon puts it in a larger box with some air bladders to fill up the space. There is no padding around the inner box. So, if it gets tossed around, like many packages do, the binoculars take the full brunt of it. Delicate optical instruments should have foam cushion all around.
