Great Binoculars

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on June 27, 2013
These are great binoculars for terrestrial viewing or sky watching. You really need a tripod for celestial viewing. For the price, I think you can't beat them. I use them for terrestrial viewing, as a spotting scope, and for sky watching.
Pros: clear optics, easy tripod mount
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

Celestron 20x80

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NY Written on August 13, 2011
I had read numerous reviews of these binos being out of collimation but took a chance. They seemed well made and gave me outstanding views of the moon but once I started looking a stars I was getting doubles, I was very disappointed and sent them back. Now I'm afraid to order giant binos and went back to using my Nikon 10x50's.
It's a nice product so why doesn't Celestron address this issue?
Pros: good value
Cons: arrived out of collimation...

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on June 30, 2011
Generaly ok as for this price, but defenitely could be better if the optics was brighter (pitty just multicoated). With a tripod not a problem to focus, but really hard holding it in hands. Body construction wants to be more solid, but in this price you can't demand more...

Great Value

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 7, 2011
When I received these, they were not collimated. However there are collimation screws that can be turned using eyeglass replair screw drivers. They located under the rubber covering the had grips. I was able to put it in alignment and have never had problems since. You can collimate it yourself without problems! Why Celestron does not tell you or include collimation instructions is beyond me. It's simple to do!
Pros: Nice Optics
Cons: Celestron Customer Support Stinks...

Celestron 20x80 SkyMaster Giant Binoculars 71018

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on November 2, 2010
GROSSLY UNCOLLIMATED

Why a company like CELESTRON ships binoculers so uncollimated that it is wiser to buy a spotting scope instead. ?

Should have service support in other countries.

Not all of us are collimating expert.

Trying to get my binoculars serviced over seas.




Pros: Good Thing
Cons: GROSSLY UNCOLLIMATED...

20x80 SkyMaster

These binoculars were not useable. Collation is off. Two images. Worthless. This is second set of Celestron I purchased and both had same problem. Will not purchase Celestron again without using them first.
Cons: Not useable...
