I can see clearly now...,
This review is from: Celestron 71009 15 x 70 Skymaster Porro Prism Binoculars (Electronics)
These are possibly the best value for money bins on the market.
The field is wider than stated, they are light but solidly constructed and the optics are fine.
The only downside is the plastic mount adapter, this is completely useless and brings the overall quality of the product down, it would have been better to have not included it at all. But as the bins are so cheap and a new metal mount is just a few quid it's not a real problem.
So these would make a great first instrument for a newbie astronomer, although a decent tripod and mount adapter are a must.
For the experienced with existing optics, these are not the best bins available, but pound for pound (that's money not weight) they are exceptional value.
