The 8x42 TrailSeeker Binocular from Celestron is a weather-sealed optic designed for close to mid-range observations. This lightweight binocular weighs less than 2 lbs and is compact enough to fit in the side pocket of a daypack. In addition to the TrailSeeker series' streamlined form factor, this fixed-magnification binocular features a phase-correcting dielectric prism coating that renders enhanced clarity and color fidelity. An immersive 65° apparent viewing angle and impressive 6.5 ft minimum focus distance complement the fully multicoated lens system and help provide a user-friendly glassing experience that is ideal for birding. The TrailSeeker binocular has a nitrogen-filled magnesium alloy housing that is built to withstand heavy rain and deliver fogproof performance, making this Celestron optic ready to handle almost any outdoor glassing activity.

    Celestron 71404 reviews

    8x42 TrailSeeker Binocular is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended for high quality and good value The image quality of these glasses is among the best I have seen based on sharpness and brightness during low light observations. Near sunset, shady areas under bushes and in evergreen trees with dark shadows appear black or nearly so to the unaided eye. However using these glasses, details of tree bark and ground/rock under bushes in those same areas become easily visible. A good test of the optic's quality is to look for sharpness around the periphery of the field of view, and these binoculars show crisp detail around the edges of the field. The case seems strong, rigid and well protected by rubberized coating, but I have not had them long enough to assess durability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with these binoculars - highly rated! Purchased them for my daughter for occasional bird watching - did quite a bit of online research and these were highly rated on a couple of different bird watching websites. They came with a decent carrying case, a neck strap and a harness strap so you don't have to have them hanging from neck all of the time. B&H also included a cleaning pen for the lenses. The binoculars themselves are well built and comfortable to hold - the are crystal clear and have very good magnification. I would highly recommend these binoculars especially if you don't want to spend a ton of money but still want a really nice pair of binoculars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive Incredible quality for the money, these are so sharp. I can't believe the detail I can see for miles away. The close focus is an important feature as well, one of the reasons I chose these. These are comfortable, lightweight, well balanced and sharp. The case and straps that come with it are quality too. Very happy with this purchase. I got them mainly for bird watching, but with the range they can be used for most any kind of watching.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect all around binoculars I purchased these binoculars last January to more closely watch the birds in my backyard at the feeders. Here in Vermont the winters are hard on everyone, especially on the birds. I love these binoculars. They are lightweight, easy to hold and the lens provide a crystal clear view. I have a 10-year old pair of Bushnell binoculars and these are so much more superior!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Clarity, Wife Happy = I'm Happy Purchased these for my wife who loves to watch various critters outside. We both agree the clarity and quality of these are outstanding. She's went on and on (in a good way) to friends/family about these, and how much more clearly she can see the ducks, horses, turtles, birds, etc.. Seem sturdy, focus easy to operate, not heavy, very satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Binoculars and Terrific Customer Service These binoculars are wonderful from top to bottom. The body is compact and lightweight yet feels very sturdy. The glass is crystal clear and is quick and easy to focus. The eyecups are comfortable with sufficient eye relief. They also provide a very wide field of view (a major selling point for me). I also appreciate the quality of the included accessories, especially for a product at this price point. The customer service is also superb. Soon after purchasing the product, one of the plastic loops for the strap on the carrying case inexplicably broke (I suspect that this weakness was due to minor damage during shipping, rather than poor quality materials or a design flaw). I emailed Celestron, explained the situation, and they promptly sent me a replacement case, no questions asked. Needless to say, I was very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trailseeker vs Spirit XF I recently purchased these 8X42 Trailseeker bins and was able to compare them directly to my Vanguard Spirit XF 8X42's which are also sold here. I took them both into the field under various lighting conditions. The Celestrons have additional prism coatings but to my amateur eyes there was no optical difference between the two. Traiseeker has a slightly wider FOV but that was barely perceptible. I did really like the open-bridge design of the Vanguards but the Celestrons were almost as comfortable to hold. I also liked the Vanguard's eye-cups a bit better but that is a personal preference. I prefer the longer turn of the Celestron's focus wheel over the 3/4 turn of the Vanguards, but that would also be a matter of preference. In the end it was the slightly nicer carrying case and the included extra harness that would have me lean towards the Celestrons. I'm extremely happy with both and they are a great value for the money. I will be gifting the Vanguards to my daughter, but I may regret it. . .
