B&H put together this Celestron 15x70 SkyMaster Pro Binocular Kit to give you a complete observational platform for terrestrial or astronomical use. The kit includes a pair of Celestron's powerful binoculars and a highly portable yet stable tripod with head.

  • Celestron 15x70 SkyMaster Pro Binocular

    Designed as an ideal optic for wide-view astronomical or long-range terrestrial observation, the Celestron 15x70 SkyMaster Pro Binocular features their proprietary XLT multi-coating system to reduce reflection and increase light transmission through the entire optical system. The porro prism configuration provides a rich depth of view and high contrast to draw users into an immersive observational experience. The combination of optical coatings, prism, and oversized 70mm objectives produces high-contrast views that are bright and crisp with accurate color fidelity.

    To help reduce weight, the binocular housing is made from a combination of polycarbonate polymer and aluminum. The aluminum provides strength in key areas, while the polycarbonate is temperature resistant to limit expansion and contraction in extreme temperatures, which can cause the optical components to move out of collimation and prevent the ability to achieve sharp focus. Large objectives and long optical tubes make the SkyMaster Pro fairly heavy with a center of gravity biased forward, so hand-holding it may cause fatigue and noticeable hand shake. A center stabilizer bar has a built-in 1/4"-20 tripod adapter to mount the instrument, with a detachable rail for a red-dot finderscope. To handle a wide range of environments, the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof.

  • Celestron TrailSeeker Tripod with Fluid Pan Head

    The TrailSeeker Tripod with Fluid Pan Head from Celestron is a 4-section aluminum tripod with a two-way fluid pan/tilt head. It extends from a minimum working height of 18.9" to a maximum of 70.5". Weighing 3.9 lb, the tripod can hold up to 9 lb, whether that be a spotting scope, binocular, camera, small telescope, or other equipment.

    The legs can be independently set to three different angles for shooting on an uneven surface. Flip locks allow you to adjust the height of each leg, and a foam grip on two of the legs adds comfort when carrying the tripod, especially in extreme temperatures. The Center column has a ballast hook for adding a counterweight, which will lower the center of gravity, adding stability to the tripod.

    The tripod features a 2-way pan/tilt fluid head with one large knob that both controls the tension and locks the head in place. A quick-release plate with a 1/4"-20 threaded stud makes attaching and detaching your equipment quick and easy. Bubble levels help ensure that your camera will be level to the horizon.

    Included with the TrailSeeker is a case and shoulder strap to protect your tripod and make transport easier.

15x70 SkyMaster Pro Binocular Kit is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would not recommend this product, Celestron Skymaster Pro I guess this is a case of getting what you pay for. I have an older Brunton 11x45 binocs. I bought them used at a very reasonable price. Normally sell for 4 to 500. bucks. There is absolutely no comparison! The biggest problem for me is trying to focus the Skymaster. Difficult to do in broad daylight. Can't imagine the difficulty with celestial objects. Anyway, would not buy them again. On the other hand, the tripod that came with the kit is excellent! Take the rather heavy binoculars with no problem!
