Product DescriptionCelestron and; s SkyMaster Series of big aperture binoculars are an incredible worth for high performance binoculars ideal for huge watching or for terrestrial (land) usage – particularly over long ranges. Each SkyMaster model features high quality BAK-4 prisms and multi-coated optics for enhanced contrast. Celestron has created and crafted the larger SkyMaster models to fulfill the special needs of extended astronomical or terrestrial viewing sessions. The 15×70 variation is one of the most popular designs in the series. It offers major big aperture light event in an inexpensive and fairly light-weight configuration.Amazon.comBinoculars can be found in a large range

of shapes and sizes these days, and an even broader variety of rates. It’s simple to invest less than$100 or more than$500 for exactly what might seem, at least outwardly, comparable designs. While they might look the exact same, they are most likely quite different on the inside. Just recently, the binocular market has seen a flood of huge binoculars

at costs that were unusual simply a few years back. In general, huge field glasses are specified as those that amplify the view 10 times or more and have 70-mm or larger front(objective)lenses. It utilized to be that the least pricey huge binoculars expense in excess of$150, even $200. All that altered recently, when the bottom fell out of the price cellar. Now, a number of companies import giant field glasses that sell for half that, or less. Celestron’s 15×70 SkyMaster field glasses are among the leaders in the low-price

giant binocular arena. They definitely sound great on paper. The SkyMasters include multicoated optics and BaK-4 internal prisms, 2 functions that guarantee brighter, better images, and crucial points to search for when evaluating a pair of field glasses. They also come with an adapter for attaching them to a picture tripod, which is a should to utilize them to their fullest, and a soft bring case. But just because they are inexpensive doesn’t constantly mean they are worth the rate. Would it be much better to conserve up for a more expensive set? To discover the response, I had a chance just recently to evaluate the SkyMasters against a pair of Fujinon 16×70 FMT-SX binoculars, one of the finest pairs of giant field glasses offered today. Like the SkyMasters, the Fujinons function BaK-4 prisms, however likewise have completely multicoated optics. As a basic rule, exceptional coatings indicate remarkable image sharpness and contrast. However then, that must be expected, considered that the Fujinons cost lot of times more than the Celestrons. While the Fujinons were clearly the much better performer, the Celestron SkyMasters held up admirably. Image brightness, quality, and contrast were all amazing considering their bargain

cost. Although images were a little soft throughout the outer 25%of the Celestron’s field, the big picture was outstanding nonetheless. Some economical binoculars have really sloppy focusing, triggering the eyepieces to tilt and move. Not so with the SkyMasters. I discovered that their center-focusing mechanism worked efficiently, with no obviously reaction or wobble. Eye relief(the range you hold your eyes away from the eyepieces to see the full field )is specified to be 18 mm, a good distance for greater power field glasses and an essential factor to consider if you must use glasses when viewing. The SkyMasters are likewise light adequate to support by hand for short durations of time, although buyers would be well advised to mount them on a durable image tripod. The bottom line is, if you are thinking about a pair of giant field glasses, whether for bird watching, stargazing, or another leisure usage, and have a minimal spending plan, Celestron’s giant 15×70 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 fuzzy Requires a tripod to use for extended periods Features Multi-coated optics Large aperture ideal for
