B&H put together this Celestron 25x100 SkyMaster Binoculars Kit to give you a complete observational platform for terrestrial or astronomical use. The kit includes a pair of Celestron's powerful binoculars that feature an ultrawide apparent angle of view, integrated tripod adapter, and individually focusable eyepieces; and a highly portable yet stable tripod with a fluid head.
Celestron 25x100 SkyMaster Binoculars
SkyMasters are economically priced large-aperture binoculars from Celestron. They're great for both astronomy and long-range terrestrial observing. The tripod adapter on the enormous 25x100 model provides support and increased rigidity. But be aware that these gargantuan lenses require an enormously strong tripod. The recommended tripod and head combinations listed as accessories here are not overkill for the application; actually, they are spot on. Slap this wonderful instrument upon an ultrabeefy tripod/head combo, and be amazed.

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.
