Celestron SkyMaster 12x60 Overview

SkyMasters are large-aperture binoculars from Celestron. They are great for both astronomy or long-range terrestrial observation.

Since high-powered binoculars are difficult to hold steady, a monopod or a tripod and adapter, with an incorporated fluid pan/tilt head, are highly recommended.

You can collimate the Celestron 72023 This bino is theUltima Dx if I’m correct? Thanks!
Asked by: Andy
No, the SkyMaster DX 9x63 is not the Ultima DX model. The binocular cannot be collimated unless taken apart by a factory trained technician. Sincerely, Garrett at Celestron

question

I have a Manfrotto 394 aluminum tripod with a quick release ball head for my film camera. Will the Celestron Sky-Watcher 8x56 binoculars mount to this tripod with the use of the Celestron tripod adapter? Thanks!
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes this set up will be compatible on your Manfrotto Tripod you have. The threading on the adapter fits 1/4 -20 threading, which is the size your ball head has.

question

1. Best Astronomy Binoculars 2015 (Editors' Choice) listed Celestron SKY MASTER 8x56. This is Celestron SKY-WATCHER 8x56. Are this different models?2. A video review of the Celestron SKY MASTER shows a dioptric adjstment on the right eyepiece yet the specs on this SKY-WATCHER says none for diopric adjustment. What gives? Is one and older model?
Asked by: Peter W.
Peter-1. I think the denotation 'sky-watcher' may be a mistake on the part of B&H's listing. If you search 'sky watcher' in the B&H store, these 8x56 binoculars (the same ones I ordered from B&H, which bear the name 'sky master' in the same spot in which 'ultima dx' is written on the model photographed in the store listing) are the only celestron product which pops up. Search 'skymaster' and you get many celestron results. To conclude a long winded explanation: I am confident this is not a different model, aside from what little logo is inscribed on the left prism barrel.2. There is indeed a right dioptric adjustment. The pair sitting on my desk here were ordered March 2014, and I doubt they would remove the feature. Again, probably just a mistake in the store listing.Hope that helps. They are excellent mid-range binoculars, and are great for star-gazing.

question

Does the Celestron 8x56 SkyMaster DX binocular have a tripod mount? The spec sheet says yes but a reviewer says no . Who is wrong?
Asked by: James B.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This model does not have a threading for a Tripod Adapter. I will alert our Web Team on this. The correct type of Tripod Adapters that will work are Strap Like Adapters. For example the Bushnell Universal Tripod Mount for Binocular would work. Website link: http://bhpho.to/2bzWmvD
