Product description

Product Description

Celestron’s SkyMaster series of large aperture binoculars are a phenomenal value for high performance binoculars ideal for astronomical viewing or for terrestrial (land) use - especially over long distances. Each SkyMaster model features high quality BaK-4 prisms and multi-coated optics for enhanced contrast. Celestron has designed and engineered the larger SkyMaster models to meet the special demands of extended astronomical or terrestrial viewing sessions.

Amazon.com

Binoculars come in a wide range of shapes and sizes these days, and an even wider range of prices. It's easy to spend less than $100 or more than $500 for what may appear to be, at least outwardly, comparable models. While they may look the same, they are probably quite different on the inside.

Recently, the binocular market has seen a flood of giant binoculars at prices that were unheard of just a few years ago. In general, giant binoculars are defined as those that magnify the view 10 times or more and have 70-mm or larger front (objective) lenses. It used to be that the least expensive giant binoculars cost in excess of $150, even $200. All that changed not long ago, when the bottom fell out of the price cellar. Now, several companies import giant binoculars that sell for half that, or less.

Celestron's 15x70 SkyMaster binoculars are one of the leaders in the low-price giant binocular arena. They certainly sound good on paper. The SkyMasters include multicoated optics and BaK-4 internal prisms, two features that promise brighter, better images, and key points to look for when judging a pair of binoculars. They also come with an adapter for attaching them to a photo tripod, which is a must to use them to their fullest, and a soft carrying case. But just because they are cheap doesn't always mean they are worth the price. Would it be better to save up for a more expensive pair?

To find the answer, I had an opportunity recently to judge the SkyMasters against a pair of Fujinon 16x70 FMT-SX binoculars , one of the finest pairs of giant binoculars sold today. Like the SkyMasters, the Fujinons feature BaK-4 prisms, but also have fully multicoated optics. As a general rule, superior coatings mean superior image sharpness and contrast. But then, that should be expected, given that the Fujinons cost many times more than the Celestrons.

While the Fujinons were clearly the better performer, the Celestron SkyMasters held up admirably. Image brightness, quality, and contrast were all remarkable considering their bargain price. Although images were a little soft across the outer 25% of the Celestron's field, the overall view was impressive nonetheless.

Some inexpensive binoculars have very sloppy focusing, causing the eyepieces to tilt and shift. Not so with the SkyMasters. I found that their center-focusing mechanism worked smoothly, with no apparently backlash or wobble. Eye relief (the distance you hold your eyes away from the eyepieces to see the full field) is stated to be 18 mm, a good distance for higher power binoculars and an important consideration if you must wear glasses when viewing. The SkyMasters are also light enough to support by hand for short periods of time, although buyers would be well advised to mount them on a sturdy photo tripod.

The bottom line is, if you are considering a pair of giant binoculars, whether for bird watching, stargazing, or another recreational use, and have a limited budget, Celestron's giant 15x70 SkyMasters represent an excellent value. --Phil Harrington, author of Star Ware and Star Watch

Pros:

  • Exceptional value for the price
  • Light enough to support by hand
  • BaK-4 prisms
  • Multicoated optics
Cons:
  • Outer 25% of the field is soft and a little blurry
  • Requires a tripod to use for extended periods

Reviewed in India on January 29, 2016
I bought these binoculars after returning the Celestron 10X50 and Celestron PowerSeeker 60AZ Telescope. The reason I returned them was cause I didn't get the views I wanted and found them to be very basic though I was on a tight budget as well. Finally I saw the must spoken of 15X70 in the Amazon sale for 7979. I know reviewers here had got an even better prices but then unfortunately that was the lowest I could get! Here is my review as an astro-viewer, more than a terrestrial viewer!
Pro's:
1. View and zoom is good if you are accepting it as a realistic person.
2. Price was ok, though lower prices are possible!
3. Better than the equipment I have mentioned above. No science in figuring that out!
4. Came we well packed though I am sure I got a used piece. Multiple tape marks confirmed this. The binos were clean though!
Con's:
1. Heavy blurring of stars and planets gives a frustrating experience!
2. Heavy equipment, which may benefit your muscles though! Long time use may surely do neck and back damage. Tripod is a must!
3. Lighting around in a metro city messes the overall experience
Setting expectations in a polluted metro:
1. Jupiter will be seen a bright white dot with 4 moons seen as fine and faint dots next to it it. Just like a thermocol ball.
2. No, you can't see the red spot on Jupiter!
3. Saturn is the most sought after planet. However, it looks white, blurred, elliptical and like an even smaller thermocol ball. Due to the blurring, you have to conclude that the elliptical shape is because of the rings. And no you can't make out the rings clearly!
4. The moon is bright as big as the new 10Rs coin. Craters are clear!
5. I'm yet to see the galaxies and nebulae so can't comment on it yet.
6. You can see other stars that you may not be able to see with the naked eye. In short you see more of the milky way!
7. Terrestrial views are fine and you can see good amount of details. My house is 9kms from the airport runway (as-the-crow-flies) and the detailing on the airplane tail is just fine. Easy to make out the airline. Don't expect to see waving passengers at this distance though!
What is a must:
1. Tripod!!!!! Buy the Photron Stedy Pro 560 and it works like a charm. I got it at a reduced price of 1100 instead of 2950 on Amazon which was even more fantastic. The bino to tripod docking station is plastic but I think it does the job. Reviewers on Amazon USA have suggested a metal dock, which would definitely be better than plastic. However you can stick to what you get.
2. Google Sky Map on Android is brilliant! Can't track planets and stars without it.
3. A good phone that you can focus on the eyepiece to click pictures. Makes silly pics, but then can surely show people what you saw! I use the Note 5.
4. Painkillers, if you go without the tripod for extended viewing.
5. Don't wear your cap the other way while viewing else you may be mistaken for a sniper!
Pictures:
Check the pictures to see how the planets look. Please excuse the blurred white circle (in between which should not be mistaken for some astro object) and also the quality! These pictures are very crude representations of what you see and the real view is slightly better. I still need to test these in a less polluted and lit area and I'm sure they will do their magic!
Verdict: You may buy if
1. Your expectations are not very high.
2. You can wait for reduced prices if not in a hurry. As I type my review, these binos are retailing for 10,048.
3. If you need to buy it, Amazon it is!
Finally, I hope the review helps you make your choice!
