Celestron's SkyMaster Series of large aperture binoculars are a phenomenal value for high performance binoculars ideal for astronomical viewing or for terrestrial (land) use - especially over long distances. Each SkyMaster model features high quality BAK-4 prisms and multi-coated optics for enhanced contrast. Celestron has designed and engineered the larger SkyMaster models to meet the special demands of extended astronomical or terrestrial viewing sessions.
The 15x70 version is one of the most popular models in the series. It offers serious large aperture light gathering in an affordable and reasonably lightweight configuration.
For the price you can not argue
This review is from: CELESTRON SkyMaster 25x70 (71008) Binoculars
Pros: Splendid clarity, 70mm allows for stunning views. Light weight and durable. Free carry bag and a tri pod mount.
Cons: box was opened when I got it. Looks like they may have been used. There is a white nick in the paint or coating right by 1 of the eye pieces. The coating itself has some sort of defect. It has lighter color lines all over 1 side of it. And that is just the cosmetic issues.
Other Thoughts: I missed out on a better sale but still 80 bucks shipped they are a good deal. Celestron makes great astronomy and star gazing products. I purchased these for just that. Within moments I had spotted Jupiter and 1 of its moons, The orion nebula, 2 galaxies, and of course the moon in stunning clarity. I am not sure if the defects listed in the cons is from manufacturer or if newegg shipped me a used product. I honestly would not put it past newegg as I have seen countless reviews of returned product opened being sold new these days.
