Celestron 71021 overview

  • 1Description

Equipped with an oversized aperture and a powerful zoom range, the Celestron 18-40x80 SkyMaster Zoom Binocular is an ideal choice for long-duration astronomical or long-distance terrestrial (land) use. The large objective ensures volumes of light are gathered to see better than smaller aperture models; and the easy zoom lever allows you to set the optic on low power to easily find your subject, then zoom in to make detailed up-close observations. This model was engineered with an exceptionally long eye relief to make it comfortable to look through for extended periods of time, while limiting eye strain. Because of the size and weight of the SkyMaster, Celestron engineered them with a center stabilizer bar and an adjustable tripod mount to provide a hands-free option and relieve arm strain, reduce fatigue, and limit vibrations.

    18-40x80 SkyMaster Zoom Binocular is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent glass, poor collimation. As a disclaimer, I purchased these binos after reading several reports of poor collimation from the manufacturer. They were in the power/price range I was looking for though. First night out, I had them mounted to a alt/az tripod for testing. I had Mars in the center of one eyepiece, and the very bottom right edge of the FOV in the other eyepiece, at the lowest power setting. Ugh. Took them back in the house and got my old birding binos out instead. Spent most of the next afternoon collimating them back into a usable state. Bottom line- I'd skip these unless your prepared to deal with fixing the collimation after purchase. The optics themselves are pretty decent for glass in this price range though.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very low quality would not purchase again Not a good value, even for the very inexpensive price. As delivered the collimation was way off, but luckily that is easy to fix. After adjusting the collimation the optics were a bit blurry at 18x, but got very blurry as the zoom increased. B&H is the best! The quickly provided an RMA with a shipping label which will save me money on the return. Lesson Learned: I should have bought a more expensive and higher quality pair of binoculars.
