poor performance on higher magnifications


Focus was good at low magnifications but at the upper limit of X30 I could not get the left and right eyes to focus together. Also, there seemed to be a columination problem at X30 where the left and right sides were looking at two different targets....

Good Quality Binoculars


I purchased these Binoculars for my Daughter, who loves Aviation. Good Quality feel and ease of use. My daughter claims that you can see a 747 at 29000 feet, when using the Zoom function. Would certainly recommend this product !

not suitable

good value for money


Good pair of general use binoculars.They are quite light considering there size.They are easy to focus over the entire zoom range and give a bright image. They perform as good as other binoculars costing twice as much that I have!

A little on the heavy side, but does the job


I researched a whole range of bins. and chose these as a compromise on performance and price. So far I am very pleased with the ease of use and clarity of image. The potential to increase the magnification is a bonus.

Celestron 10-30 x 50 binoculars


I bought these to watch aircraft at airports and also those flying over at high level. My expectations were exceeded given the price. They suit my needs and do what I bought them for.
