A picture is worth a thousand words, so B&H put together the Celestron 8x42 Outland X Binoculars Digiscoping Kit for you to view birds, game, the kids' soccer game, architectural details, or landscapes and then capture photos and videos of the magnified view. This kit includes Celestron's Outland X binoculars and their basic smartphone digiscoping adapter that fits over one of the eyepieces.
Celestron 8x42 Outland X Binoculars (Black)
The black 8x42 Outland X Binoculars from Celestron feature multicoated optics, BAK4 Roof Prisms, a wide angle of view, and weatherproof construction with rubber armoring. While the multicoated lenses increase transmission and image brightness, the Roof Prisms made of BAK4 optical glass preserve true colors. The wide 6.8° angular field of view allows you to see a linear field of 357' at a distance of 1000 yards, and the center focus with a diopter allows you to see crisp details as close as 13.1'. The binoculars have a 56 to 74mm interpupillary adjustment range, 5.3mm exit pupils, and 18mm eye reliefs.
In addition to optical performance features, the Outlander X binoculars present a number of convenience and construction highlights. The binoculars housing is nitrogen-purged, waterproof and fogproof, with a smooth black rubberized armoring to ensure a non-slip grip. For easy focusing, there is a large knurled center focus knob and a ribbed diopter ring on the right eyepiece. To accommodate anyone with glasses, the eyepieces have twist-up eyecups. If you want to attach the binoculars to a tripod, use the threaded hole under the front center cup with an optional adapter.
Also included with the binoculars are a soft neoprene carry pouch, a strap, and protective objective lens cups.

Celestron Basic Smartphone Digiscoping Adapter (1.25")
Capture still images and videos of celestial and terrestrial objects with virtually any smartphone through almost any 1.25" eyepiece with Celestron's Basic Smartphone Digiscoping Adapter. Ideal for telescopes, binoculars, spotting scopes, monoculars, microscopes, and any other type of optic with an eyepiece, the design allows it to be used on most oculars with outside diameters between 29mm (1.14") and 45mm (1.77"). The rigid frame is made of sturdy and lightweight aluminum with non-slip padding on clamping points to secure it to your eyepiece and mount your smartphone without marking or marring its surfaces. A clamping system holds the adapter securely on the eyepiece and locks in place, while an adjustment system allows for precise phone camera alignment.
