SkyMaster Binoculars are large-aperture offerings from Celestron, great both for astronomy or long-range terrestrial observing. The tripod adapter on the 20x80 model provides support and increased rigidity. These were never designed to be held in the hands. Take this beast where skies are dark and mount it to a tripod. Then be awed at their awesome ability to penetrate the inky depths of night, revealing the subtle nuances of galaxies and nebulae with all the advantages of using two eyes instead of one.

Celestron SkyMaster 20x80 Reviews
Not strong enough to see any planetary details; go for the telescope!
Great binoculars for night and terrestrial viewing. Requires a sturdy, supportive tripod as these are too large for viewing while holding. Clear optics and perfect for our entry into serious celestial viewing.
Nice for stars
Thought I’d buy a nice pair of binoculars for stargazing. While it’s not to be used as a replacement for a telescope, you can see stars that you cannot see with the naked eye.
Just Right ! Buy this NOT a cheap telescope!
If you want your kids to fall in love with science, this is a great value! I bought this for both bird watching and astrophotography, mainly moon photos. I’m glad I didn’t buy the 100x25. Even with this size the birds that are close enough to find with naked eye are often too close to focus on. It focuses brilliantly at about 75-1000 yds. The Moon is breathtaking and fills the scope perfectly right in the sweet spot on the lends! The tripod is a must theses things are heavy! And you need it to avoid shaking.
Incredible aperture for the dollar
I'm amazed that Celestron can offer so much aperture at such a reasonable price, with solid construction. I use mine mainly for specialized astronomy (observing variable stars) and find them superbly suited to that application. They are sufficiently lightweight and well balanced that I actually hand-hold them for that purpose, since most of my targets are high overhead where a tripod won't help. The eyecups are comfortable and functional, and the views are clear. I find that nighttime views of the stars are more satisfying than daytime views, which seem a bit less sharp and show some aberrations - not surprising at this price point, and I'm not complaining. Well done, Celestron!
very clear and much closer than anticipated.
very clear and crisp image. fits very comfortable to my eyes even with a narrow ppd of 53 I get a single focal point. only issue I had so far was the green/pinkish on some objects when viewed where in front of brighter object or sky
Seems to be good optics happy with these. Long Focus thou and not as smooth after third or fourth use not a problem unless it gets worse.
Celestron SkyMaster 2080
I recently purchased a pair of SkyMasters from B&H and I am very pleased with them. After searching online for a binocular that would fit my needs of viewing the night sky I found the Celestron SkyMaster 2080's. And for the price that B&H was offering at the time, I knew had to have them. I'm very pleased with the online services and delivery. The binoculars were packed well and arrived ready to use right out of the box. Thank you B&H Photo! I've been looking at other products and plan to make future purchases. D. Bell Marion County, Ga
