This full-sized version of the EclipSmart is outfitted with a classic Porro prism optical path, larger objectives, and a wide angle of view so you can observe details, such as sunspots, in natural and neutral color tones at a generous 10x magnification. The prism design creates a comfortable and ergonomic feel in the hand, with the optic's center of gravity pulled back over your wrists to reduce fatigue and allowing for longer observation sessions and reduced hand shake.

Can you see the sun with these during totality? Would they be too dark during totality?
Asked by: Ben
The Celestron 10x42 EclipSmart Solar Binoculars will not be able to see the sun during totality. I would recommend using these non filters binoculars instead: https://bhpho.to/3vgWU3q plus these removeable filters: https://bhpho.to/3FlitRE. This way you can remove the filters for totality and use the binoculars later for normal use.

I really need a front screw in so that I can mount this on a tripod. Any ideas?
Asked by: Anonymous
I just mounted mine. Was pretty fast and easy. Just remove the cap in front of the focus ring. It's actually a hybrid mount. Binoculars are mounted to a Joby GorillaPod with bulkhead and the GorillaPod is mounted on my tripod. A little cumbersome, but works.

Would you be able to see a transit of Mercury with these?
Asked by: Anonymous
Not likely. I've read 50X or better magnification is needed.
