Top customer reviews
I recently saw the need for a 10 power binocular so my aging eyes could get up a little closer to the birds. Trusting to Celestron's reputation, as well as many good experiences with their products, (and the recent rebate), I decided on these reasonably priced Celestron Trailseekers. I have already had them out a number of times and am quite happy with their performance. The field of view for a 10X binocular is excellent. So is the close focus which will allow you to focus on a bird less than about 10 feet away--as close as most birds will allow. The focuser works smoothly, the weight is about average and the general feel of the binoculars in my hand is comfortable.
As for the optical quality, these binoculars produce a bright, sharp image that shows no aberrations except possibly toward the very edge of the field--and not much even there. While they won't produce an image as nice as a $2500 pair of binos, these cost less than 1/10 as much. Unless you are used to the ultra expensive binoculars, these are an excellent compromise between quality and price. Actually, it's not really a compromise since Celestron is not compromising on the quality. They are giving you a beautifully made product with exceptional optical quality that would have cost much more, if this quality was even available, 30 years ago. Optical glass and coatings have advanced a lot in the past 20 to 30 years and we have been able to benefit with better quality and lower prices. I believe these are a good choice for anyone seeking a good performing binocular at a very reasonable price.
I did a lot of comparative research on brands using the internet and everything kept steering me back towards Celestron, whose name I recognised from telescopes. Unfortunately, at the time of buying I was in a part of New England that did not seem to have any stockists. I visited a few stores and tried out a whole range of other makes such as Vanguard, Vortex, Nikon and even Swarovski before deciding to stick with my research and go for the unseen Celestron.
I am happy to report that I am more than happy with my decision. They are as compact as any I looked at, feel very solid and well made without being at all heavy and I can wear them with my spectacles just fine without any problem whatsoever. They are perhaps a little brighter than I was expecting, which was a bonus and left me feeling better for not going bigger. Also the field of view is nice and wide, so you can really see what is going on around you.
They come with a decent enough case, an average quality neck strap which I found comfortable and an additional chest strap, so I could wear them around my neck without them swinging all over the place. To be honest, I haven't quite figured out how to wear it (or if I would need to) but whilst I was out, I did see someone else wearing such a harness and it was working well for him as he hiked about, so a nice touch having it thrown in for free. The eyepiece rubber covers are connected to each other, with the ability to thread them through the strap, so you won't loose them in use. The covers at the other end (objective lens) I'm a little less happy with. They come with a rubber ring that sits in a groove that runs around the body, so you can flip them off and not loose them. I'm just not sure how well this will last, whether they will slip off off or the rubber ring snap. I have to stress everything is working fine now, its just in the long-term. I also have to say I never looked to compare other makes for how they dealt with it, so this could be good, bad, or average. It certainly does not detract from how pleased i am with them.
Overall, for someone who is a very occasional user, I am very pleased with my purchase. They look good, feel good and do what I expect them to do. Amazon's delivery was poor - ordered for 2 day delivery and they were days late, Prime certainly seems much better in UK.
