Not bad
 
Good binoculars, but weren't much brighter than a pair of 10x50's that I had, and the right eyecup did not fold back (and stay that way) which is a problem since I wear glasses. There are brighter 7x50's that have better coatings and prisms so if you're getting this for astronomy there are better options. In the daytime they are pretty sharp.

These ended up on back order because of high demand. Disappointed I decided to cancel order

Lens barrel misthreaded
 
Unpacked the binoculars and one of the lens barrel was crooked it was screwed into the body at an angle. I may have been able to unthread it and rethread it but I did not trust the collimation would ever be accurate. I will find a more expensive and hopefully better quality product.

Great general-purpose binoculars for little $$$.
 
These binoculars are a great deal. I have a telescope as well as giant binoculars for astronomical viewing, but I wanted some binos that I could hold in my hands (the others are too heavy) for general and astronomical use. I read the chapter on binoculars in "The Backyard Astronomer's Guide" (the 'bible' for such things), and they said that 7X50 (7X magnification, 50mm light-gathering lenses) are ideal for general use and perfectly adequate for casual astronomical viewing. I like Celestron pr...

Solid feel, decent optics
 
For casual stargazing, binoculars can be more fun than higher-powered scopes. And of course you can also use binoculars for general sightseeing. 7x50 is a common power and size for general-purpose binoculars and have been for a long time (my dad still has a German pair of 7x50 binocs that he got shortly after WWII). Magifications exceeding about seven or eight require a tripod unless your hands are exceptionally steady, and with a power of 7-fold a 50mm objective is the right size. The antir...

Great bang for buck
 
These binos are a great buy. The field of view on these is really good and the clarity is excellent. They are well made and have a quality feel. Eventhough these are geared for astronomical purposes I have actually only used them once at night. They worked very well and probably would have worked even better if I had given my eyes time to adjust. Overall I feel you will get some quality binocs for little money with these.

Celestron products
 
I recently purchased a pair of the Celestron Cometron 12 x 70 binoculars--I did so because there was an article written about them in Popular Mechanics, which led me to believe that these would be a good investment. The quality is POOR. The item appears to have been manufactured using the least expensive material and processes available anywhere. The first pair was delivered broken, and there was a 30 day delay for the arrival of the second pair. They work, but the parallax is horrible, and I am...

Nice Binoculars for Star Gazing
 
I have a pair of Barska 12-36 x 70 zoom binoculars I bought several years ago for looking at the night sky, but they are very heavy and difficult to use for simple star gazing without setting up a tripod to support them. Even then, they jiggle around quite a bit. Then a few months ago I read an article in Earth-Sky News about the best binoculars for amateur astronomers to view the night sky. They recommended 7x50's as the most useful for beginners.I'm not a true beginner as I've o...
