Customer Reviews

What GREAT pair of binoculars for not a lot of money!!!
Ruth M
The focus of each left and right side is fine but they are not aligned therefore you would see a double image.
Traveler
Great binoculars overall; very clear, easy to focus, sturdy, and easy to grip!

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.

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.

I just got my Celestrone UpClose. I had planned on getting the $62 Bushnell with AutoFocus, but changed my mind when I read the reviews for this binoculars. I can tell you that I'm so happy I got this. The optics are very clear and bright. And it's easy to focus. I'm very happy with the purchase. Even my wife said it's very clear compared to our old one. I can't wait to take it to the mountains or beach.

Style Name: UpClose G2 20x50 - Porro Verified Purchase
I'm a newbie when it comes to binoculars. But I can definitely tell you: You get what you paid for. Compared to another binocular I own Orion 7x50, these Celestron are defective and low quality at best. The image is not sharp or crisp. And although the objective lenses is 50, it does not capture enough light. And worst of all, the focus is horrible. The focus of each left and right side is fine but they are not aligned therefore you would see a double image. Spending over 2-hours focusing, I just cannot get one single focused image. I think it's called collimation misalignment. Any way, do not let the brand name convince you. The quality is just not there. Not even for $30-35. I would not recommend. Thank goodness Amazon willing to accept refund and provided free return shipping.

Let me preface this with the warning that I don't know much about binoculars. This is only the best info I can give as someone who has rarely used them.

This review is a bit long because I tried to provide as much information as a I could, since if you're buying online, you probably can't test them out first.

- The Binoculars shipped in a box with a soft carrying case, a generic lens cloth, and a very thin (1 cm) nylon neck strap, and fully-detaching lens caps (soft ones for the objectives, hard ones for the eyepieces). The body is sturdy rubber-coated metal. This makes them a tad heavy, but they feel reasonably durable.

- Out of the box, new product has a bit of a chemical smell from the rubberized covering, lens caps, and bag.

- I have hyperopic astigmatism, and decided to adjust the binoculars for use with my glasses. This worked out fine for me, even with the relatively low eye relief, but your results may vary. Of note, the lens caps cannot be attached to the eyepieces unless the rubber cups are up on the eyepieces (which they can't be if you have glasses-- unless you want a reduced field of view). This is a problem for me as it means that I have to fold down the cups for each use, which mean's I'll probably screw up the diopter focus every time I uncap them.

- The objective lenses reflect green, the eyepieces reflect blue. I don't know too much about coatings, so I can't say exactly what that means, but if you do, there you go.

- The right diopter adjustment and center focus move smoothly. The interpupillary distance is tough to adjust, but also won't slip, I imagine.
