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.

Received them yesterday, clear night sky, first sighting of M31 Andromeda Galaxy - Great!

Really pleased with these binos, they provide long eye relief (I read somewhere 18mm) which surprised me, given that they have powerful 15x magnification. I guess it's helped by the large 70mm objective lens.

The image is very good, no doubt down to the BAK-4 porro prisms and multi-coated lens. They focus well, and keep focus (left and right) when moving from distant to near objects (and back again).

I am pleasantly surprised how easy they are too handle, despite their size, they can be kept as steady as a pair of 10 x 50s that I tested (but returned due to poor eye relief). I suspect that this is mainly because one tends to hold them by the narrow part of the barrels, as opposed to the main body (prism chamber). Adopting this method means that the weight of those long barrels is better distributed and less likely to wobble. However one must be very careful not to bump those long barrels, else the optics might be significantly effected.

A plastic mount is supplied to attach to a tripod, but I bought a more substantial Opticron L mount to use with a monopod or tripod when I want to some support. A more relaxed and comfortable viewing position, which causes less neck strain is to lay on a reclining garden chair.

The binos are excellent for the night sky, far better than the 10 x 50 Olympus binos that I tried out. I would highly recommend their use, especially as they enable you to quickly navigate the night sky in a way that is not viable using a cumbersome telescope. Having said that, I will occasionally haul out my telescope to look at some objects in more detail.

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.

Like many people starting out with astronomy, I didn't want to purchase anything too expensive to begin with. These seemed like a good compromise before ultimately buying a telescope, but now I've had them for a week or so, I can honestly see myself using them alongside a telescope. I did debate getting some 10x50 binoculars, but I'm glad I bought these (15x70).

Amazon recommends that you also purchase the Hama Star 63 tripod and an Opticron Tripod L Mount for a total of £88. I'd strongly recommend this. You will get great use from the binoculars on a tripod (and the tripod (for the price) is FANTASTIC). The binoculars come with a mount so you don't NEED to buy the Opticron mount, but for a couple of quid, I'd recommend it. It's metal, rather than the plastic one you get included with the Celestrons.

As for the binoculars - they are great.

Using them without a tripod: You can see some fantastic detail on the moon, including craters etc. You can see stars that you can't see with the naked eye and the stars you can see with the naked eye, become visible in great detail. It is hard to hold the binoculars still (freehand, without a tripod) on individual stars and they will 'jump' around a bit, regardless of how much you try to hold them still. You can see constellations in great detail though and even a couple of galaxies including the Orion Nebula.

With a tripod: Amazing. Point it in the general direction, find your star and clamp down the tripod so the binoculars don't move. Let it settle for 10 seconds or so and then have a look through the eye pieces, trying not to knock the tripod. You will see the moon in amazing detail and the stars in good detail too.

First time using the tripod, I pointed it at the brightest star....
