Make long-range observations or explore the night sky using the 15x70 SkyMaster Binoculars from Celestron. These binoculars are specifically designed for those tasks and possesses two distinct characteristics that set them apart from many other binoculars and make them a good fit for the purpose. First is the extra-wide 70mm objective aperture, which allows lots of light and delivers good visibility in low-light conditions. Second is their high 15x magnification power, which enables you to have good close-ups on distant objects, even the moon and the stars. These binoculars have a configuration that allows you to observe celestial objects with both eyes, an advantage over regular telescopes. Also, they are fully assembled and ready to be mounted on a tripod using the included adapter. To ensure that you get clear images without glare, the lenses are anti-reflection multi-coated. Other highlights of the optic are its center focusing, interpupillary adjustment, and diopter corrector. To protect these binoculars while not in use, objective lens covers are included, along with a rainguard for the eyepieces, and a carry case.

Has anyone had the problem with the Celeston 15x70 Skymaster not being collomated? I saw the procedure on youtube and it does not look easy to do. I really don't want to go through this hassle.

I am interested in daytime viewing of the cityscape from my terrace and landscapes in the country. Night viewing is secondary. Are these binoculars appropriate?
Asked by: Barbara
These would work great, yes. However keep in mind they might be too heavy to hold steady, so you might need to mount them on a Tripod at some point. For your use these would be suitable.

question

Everyone is saying that these binoculars are really heavy, however its only 1.5 kg. Does it become very uncomfortable for a binocular, or is there add on weight?
Asked by: Pranay J.
I dont consider binoculars heavy. I normally have them mounted on tripod. When not the little extra weight helps steady them. Good buy for the money. I have recommended to a couple friends.

question

i want binoculars to see the evening sky. what do the numbers 25x70, 20x80, 25x100, etc, describe? thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
I'd suggest you go with a lower magnification, such as a 15 x 70. The higher the magnification, the harder it is to hold the binoculars steady. Even at 15 x it is challenging to hold. You need to brace yourself. If you want to go higher, you need a tripod. The other factors to consider are weight and cost which both generally goes along with the higher diameter.
