I first saw the Granite binoculars at the British BirdFair. I was very impressed and when I returned to the States I acquired a pair. I am an active birder and I love the Granites. They are not a true compact binocular but they are relatively small and light weight. The image is bright and clear all the way to the edge of the lenses. They have a wide field of view, over 400 ft, and a close focus distance of 6.5 feet - good for birders. Image quality and brightness very comparable to much more expensive brands, at least to my eyes.

As a retired NASA photographer I have used different binoculars for years. Recently my Celestron 7X56 binoculars had the outside surface of the binoculars crack and completely deteriorate. It was several years before I found the guarantee for them, a CELESTRON LIFE TIME WARRANTY!

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.

First of all, I must state that I am particularly pleased with the great selection and the top class service from Amazon. I have been an Amazon customer for several years now and this is my very first review. Thanks to those who had sent in their reviews which had guided me in the past. I wish to contribute with my own first review. This is an exceptionally top class performer. It is light in weight, feels very good in the hands, top quality and the image is exceptionally good for its low price. I am very happy to have made this choice and will highly recommend it. I had evaluated this against the top brands of binoculars in the market for astronomy including those in the several thousand dollar price range but eventually settled for this not because it was inexpensive but because I was looking for the best and I had found it.

Size: 7x33
This is specifically about the 7x33 variant of the Celestron Granite Series, evaluated in May, 2015. (I have no experience with other models of the series.)

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.

Size: 10x42 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been a serious birder for several decades and have owned many pairs of binoculars including a few that have cost more than a thousand dollars. I currently use my Canon 12x36 Image Stabilization and my Leica 10x42 pairs the most. When I got a chance to own this pair I was a little concerned that they might not be something that I would want to carry with me, even as a back-up for my back-ups. Boy was I wrong!

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.
