How's chromatic aberrations on these binos? Are they really apparent on a sunny day?
Asked by: pavel
Hello Pavel, thank you for your message. There is very little chromatic aberration seen in a TrailSeeker 10x42 binocular on a sunny day. Aberration is most commonly seen in any optic that may show it on overcast days when viewing high contrast subjects - bare branches against a white sky, for example.

question

The previous version, the Celestron Nobel 8X32 were said to have excellent eye relief for those who wear glasses. These seem to have narrower eye relief. What are other eyeglass weare's experiences with these binoculars?
Asked by: Doug
We haven't really had any feedback other than positive. As in the reviews indicate. The Eye Relief is 15.6 mm.

question

Would these be good for football games?
Asked by: Vicki H.
They would work, but I would recommend a wider angled model. A good option would be the Nikon 7x35 Aculon A211 Binoculars. They will be wider angled, and will be able to get an image of the whole field. Website link: <a href= http://bhpho.to/11UPz6r target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/11UPz6r</a>

question

Are the following items included In The Box : harness, objective caps, rainguard, lens cloth, neck strap, carry case, instruction manual for the Celestron 71400 bincular?
Asked by: Anonymous
There was no harness other than a neck-strap which I did not like and replaced with a softer cotton strap from a camera I no longer use.Objective caps were in the box (on the lenses).I do not remember about rainguard, or lens cloth. There is no need for the rainguard as these binoculars are water-proof and the carry case protects well against dirt.There was a soft carry case of somewhat unsuitable quality for the price of the binoculars -- I mean lower, not higher quality. Yes there were some instructions -- but one learns much more on the web.

question

Is this the STRAIGHT spotting scope or the trailseeker phone adapter..?!
Asked by: Brian H.
This model is the Straight Model Spotting Scope. Not the Phone Adapter. My apologies for the confusion. I will alert my Web Team to update this photo. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
