1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality design, 27 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Celestron 71008 25x70 Skymaster Porro Prism Binoculars (Electronics)
From the moment I opened the parcel I eagerly anticipated using these 25 X 70 Celestron. I know buying binoculars for less than 100 I should not expect the best, but at least they should focus. Mine did not. The focussing ring just could not get the lenses to focus at any point. Company has agreed to replace them, but to be honest I just want my money back. For me the Celestron 25 x 70 is not worth the money. Better to wait and get a more expensive set from a more reliable maker. Although sending the binoculars back to Jersey (didn't realise when buying from Amazon the the company was not UK based) is free, I still don't want to have to wait for my refund. As I'm going away in a few days I'll be with my trusty 10X50's instead.

Sounds like you had a faulty set. I've just received mine and they focus perfectly.
In my opinion they are a brilliant set of binoculars, they really let the light in and distant objects are very clear and bright.

If you're very far-sighted, then high-powered binoculars might only focus at 'infinity and beyond' ?

Did you try with your driving specs on ?

Alternatively, most people will find these only focus down to 75 ft (23 m). Were you looking at birds just outside the kitchen window ?

25x are quite extreme binoculars - I doubt if you'll find even expensive ones work fundamentally different.
Pentax make handy close-focussing binocs called 'Papilio' ...
