About this deal

Talking of accessories, the tripod adapter of which I was familiar as I studied photography years ago and using a tripod was par for the course. The 25x magnification of the SkyMaster 25x70s is not nearly as advantageous as it seems, and for the most part is a detriment to a fun and easy observing experience, rendering these binoculars far less of a good choice compared to the SkyMaster 15x70s or even lower magnification options, such as 12×70 binoculars. EclipSmart solar products feature Solar Safe filter technology providing the ultimate protection from harmful solar radiation, including both IR and UV light, and filters 99. The Celestron SkyMaster 25x70 binoculars are acceptable but just not particularly easy to use, and their 25x magnification provides few advantages over more typical 12x70 and 15x70 binoculars to justify the many compromises otherwise necessary in the design. ED stands for "extra-low dispersion," which refers to the composition and optical properties of the glass used for the lenses.

Fixing your binocular to a tripod can go a long way in helping you achieve a really stable platform for a shake free view, as well as free up your hands to do something else and take the weight off your arms enabling you to relax, which is important should you want to observe an area over a long period of time. Professional High Powered Binoculars – 20x magnification and 50mm objective lens ensures wide angles viewing from more than 1000 yards. The PV rating (Peak To Valley) is a measurement from the highest point (Peak) to the lowest point (Valley). Just select Zygo Test Report from the drop down box at the top of the listing and we will test the optics in house and provide a full 2 page report with your scope.which is nice and close and matches some of the best full sized bins out there, which means that these should be ideal for those whose eyes are fairly close set. At the forefront of a new era in amateur astronomy, the launch of Celestron Origin stands as a beacon, seamlessly intertwining stargazing and astrophotography into a singular, user-friendly experience. The light-gathering ability of these binoculars, which is what matters for deep-sky objects, is similar to that of a small, wide-field telescope in the 4” aperture range, though viewing with both eyes can have some contrast improvement, especially under light-polluted skies. Obviously I did not test them to destruction, but to me they look to be easily strong enough to take most normal, day to day bangs and bashes. Astronomy Binoculars with smartphone adapter and Tripod Adapter: Phone adapter with rubber sucker, which can 180°angle and length adjustment,is easy to set up and take images.

I have a monopod too which I use for quick looks withthe binis, but the tripod is much better for longer more stable views of objects. Celestron has designed and engineered the larger SkyMaster models to meet the special demands of extended astronomical or terrestrial viewing sessions.

Both options can be time-consuming and significantly frustrating, and doing it yourself requires quite a degree of precision on account of the 25x magnification and the fact that these binoculars were never intended to be maintained by the user.

Are the SkyMaster 25x70 binoculars good for imaging and observing, or would you recommend another pair?The top flap is held closed with a strip of Velcro which holds very well, but makes a huge noise when opening it, which to be fair is not such a great deal with these long distance binoculars as whatever you are about to look at will probably be a fair distance away and not be frightened off.
