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....

Too heavy and a bit awkward


Bit too heavy for me and a little awkward. Could not get comfortable with them so took them back and swapped them for a lighter set from Nikon. Not for me I'm afraid.

Great product


These are easy to focus. Great for watching ships out in the English Channel from my office window. A little bit heavy, but otherwise perfect.

Celestron 50mm binoculars


Brilliant specifications easy to use and clear view. Hardwearing, maybe just a little heavy for female hands but I find them solid and (I am used to heavy DSLR's) reliable. Excellent value

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 !
