The 12x70 Cometron Binocular from Celestron combine large objective lenses, mulitcoated optics and Bak-4 Porro prisms into an optical system designed for astronomical viewing. The 70mm objective lenses and multicoated optics gather enough light to provide bright images of the moon, planets, comets, and even some larger deep-space objects like nebulae. This combination of light gathering ability and prism design produces rich depth of view and contrast. The included adapter allows the binocular to be mounted on a tripod for extended viewing sessions.

The aluminum and polycarbonate body reduces the weight without sacrificing strength or durability. A center focus wheel gives easy access with either hand for precision focusing. Rubberized armor protects the optics when being used in damp conditions. Dimpled hand-grips help keep a steady hand on the binocular. The rubber eyecups optimize the long eye relief and block stray light from leaking in from your periphery vision, and can be folded down for eyeglass users.
