    This posting begins with a discussion of some core information about binoculars for astronomical viewing that should help potential purchasers make a more informed purchase decision.

    If you have other viewing objectives than astronomical objects, or are already familiar with binocular specifications, you may want to stop here or just read the latter part of this review before going on to other postings; otherwise, read-on.

    There are two main styles of "true" binoculars. Here, binoculars that do not use prisms such as opera glasses, are not discussed further. Most binoculars use one of two type prisms, either roof prisms or Porro prisms. Roof prisms are more modern and have a straight through appearance, i.e., the binocular cylinders form straight tubes. Porro prism binoculars (named after Ignazio Porro) have a tell-tale right angle bend. These usually are manufactured with two prism on each side of the binoculars, i.e., double Porro prisms. Although considerably larger in size, because of their improved optical qualities Porro prism binoculars, such as the model reviewed here, are preferred over roof prism binoculars for astronomical viewing.

    Another important aspect of binoculars is the size of their exit pupil. Younger folks have pupils that can open, dilate, to a maximum size of slightly over 7mm. However, as one gets older the size of this window into the eye reduces. Over the age of thirty most folks have a reduction in their dark adapted pupil size of approximately 1mm every 20 years. The exit pupils for a pair of binoculars should ideally approximate the entry pupil of the observer's eye. Although some studies suggest an even smaller exit pupil size, see below. The size of a binoculars' exit pupil is found by dividing aperture by magnification.

    Having read conflicting reviews, I cautiously purchased these binos, they arrived and... Brilliant!

    Very robust, good quality and well designed, they look good too. I think the price is very good too. Crisp, clear image and no problems with collimation as reported by a few reviews. Easy to perform the initial set-up and the tripod adapter works really well.

    Not as heavy as I was expecting, although I brought a monopod in the end which gives me the perfect mix of stability and manouverability with less weight.

    What have I seen so far: Lots of clouds (I live in London), The Full Moon with such clear detail of craters and blemishes and all and Jupiter and 4 of its Moons (amazing to see sometinh so far away as almost pea-sized).

    OK, so I've had these a few days and have only managed to use them during the day a couple of times to see the other side of town, and once tonight to see Jupiter but scuppered by more cloud cover. The image seems fine but it's seriously hindered by the tripod bracket. It has to be the most inappropriate peice of kit they could've included. I'm wondering if it might have been better to leave it out rather than be criticised for such rubbish.

    I am a serious photographer, so I know my tripod is more than up to the job, and I had a closer look at the bracket while doing it's job - or trying to. The flex that is clearly visible means that the bins will wobble with the slightest of nudges, which is any touch when trying to find an object or focus - or if you touch the eyepiece with your glasses for that matter.

    I don't have a problem with the binoculars themselves, although I haven't really given them a proper testing. What I would say to anybody thinking of buying them is: get a decent tripod mount or be frustrated by the limitation.

    Feel reasonably sturdy and well protected for the price. Probably a useable introduction to astronomy.

    Excellent binoculars, BUT, very delicate, don't drop them or even knock them as the lenses will go out of line and they are broken for good! I knocked mine on a table just after I got them and they were useless with a double image. I sent them away to be re-aligned but they still aren't right.

    They are nice for the money. I do like mine. Despite what you read dont try 15x70 binocs hand held unless if you are Data from startreck. Yes it can be done, but the vibes mean you lose alot and it aint that comfortable. Tripod mount it. The bracket they supply is a joke though. Plastic and flexes to much. You will need to order a proper one - solid metal - which wont flex.

    I got these so me and my kids could look at the stars and the moon and see all the wonderful things in the galaxy.
    They are big, so getting them on a tripod will help, but I managed to use them to watch some crows dive bombing an osprey.
    The kids haven't gpt much of a look in yet, but my wife and I spent a good ten minutes just looking at the moon.
    I did a bit of research on binoculars for star gazing, and I haven't been disappointed.

    After much research, I finally decided to go with the Celestron SkyMaster Binoculars. They are better than I expected, I can see the moon clearly, very close up and my only advice is they are quite heavy so a tripod is recommended. I am not an expert on Binoculars but I am VERY pleased with these. Happy Stargazing.
