A Great Value in fairly small size Binoculars
on July 19, 2011
I mainly chose these binoculars because of price point, size. The positive reviews gave me some confidence in the quality and Celestron is perhaps best know for their telescopes, so I did not think they would be that bad. The glass is rated BK-7 which is not the best but is very good. To Focus the binoculars you close your right eye and adjust the center focus adjustment while looking through the binoculars with you left eye. Once adjusted; close your left eye and adjust the Diopter (near the eyepiece) while looking through the binoculars with your right eye. Then you got it. Once you have done this; you should just be able to adjust the center focus depending on the objects distance. The 10X magnification is great with slightly steady hands. My wife was also impressed with the quality feel of this binocular. I do not recommend if you wear glasses, as the eye relief is extremely close (about 10mm?). They have a better optical quality and construction than a Tasco and Simmons binocular brand I own. I would say the optical clarity is impressive for the cost of this set. 10x magnification in a fairly small size. Water resistant. Great optical quality. Replaceable cost if lost, stolen or damaged. A GREAT value that will magnify your surroundings, Without breaking your bank account. I do not regret my purchase and certainly recommend. I'm actually trying to purchase another set. Thanks.
