Field of View (Degree Angle)

Field of View per Manufacturer is 3.0 degrees, BUT based on actual observation of star fields and comparison with detailed star atlas, the field is really about 2.3 degrees, certainly less than 2.5 degrees.

Superior Function at Bargain Price!

By

from Windsor Heights, Iowa  -  Casual/ Recreational

I shoot High Power rifle. At 600 yards the spotting disc appears to be right in front of you. The Great Galaxy in Andromeda is awesome! Mars, Antares, Betelgeuse, and Mars all look like red stoplights. A full moon view is fantastic and nearly blinding. You can count the mites on a gnat's backside at 300 yards. Folks, for the money you simply just can't get it any better. You want better? Then dig up $125,000 for Canon's most expensive telephoto lens and you'll get better! MY bet is that for the money spent at Adorama, unless you get extremely lucky at a garage sale or inherit the big Fujinon binoculars, you WILL be happy with this. We bought a pair of 11x80 Celestron's for Halley's Comet, and after all these years they still give excellent service, have never required servicing, and those unfamiliar with big binoculars still commet on what an excellent view and ease of adjustment they give.

Bought Celestron's for Halley's 5*'s

By

from Windsor Heights, Iowa  -  Casual/ Recreational

Weight and bulk are the downsides. But unless you have $125,000 dollars to buy the Fujinon in this class....Yes there are better products in this class, but unless you are very serious and spend a lot of lens time, these will do just fine for 99+% of users. Now, if we can just get some clear night skies,the Great Galaxy in Andromeda (M31) should be be a fine beginning.Betelgeuse, Antares, and Mars ought to look like stop-lights

Pretty fantastic

By

from Santa Clara, CA  -  Casual/ Recreational

I bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift. He wanted some good binoculars for star and planet gazing at night. Reviews told me these were the correct choice, and they were right. They are heavy and a bit unwieldy, but a good tripod will sort that out right quick. The first night we took them out, I thought we were looking at Mars and I couldn't sort out what some tiny little dots near it were until I realized we were actually seeing Jupiter and its moons. Earth's moon looks just fantastic through these too, and Saturn's rings can even be seen. I completely forgive them for seeming excessively large given what they enable us to see. ...and I searched pretty much the whole internet for the best deal. Adorama had the best price by far. They shipped them quickly and securely - I was very pleased.

Good option, great value

By

from Northwest Indiana  -  Casual/ Recreational

I bought these for my son instead of a first telescope, and I'm glad I did! Collimation out of the box was perfect. Great views of the moon, as well as Jupiter and Saturn. Great for open clusters, ok on the brighter globulars. FOV is a bit narrow and they are heavy. Orion XHD tripod with binocular mount barely handles them, but remember they are 100mm binos. I also got a set of solar filters which work nicely with these binocs. Excellent for the money!

Great views, but Huge

By

from Doylestown, PA  -  Casual/ Recreational

These binoculars show great detail, but require a tri-pod and work best for stationary objects. The moon viewed through them is absolutely awesome. I have had trouble seeing much detail of planets or star clusters. However, I have not had them out yet in a non-light polluted area.

Celestron 25x100 SkyMasters deliver!

By

from St. Cloud, Florida  -  Casual/ Recreational

I've enjoyed hours observing star clusters; nebulae; and the moon with my skymasters. I mounted them on an Orion heavy duty tripod which is a must for these big binos.

affordablity

By

from nys

Simply put, any 25x100 affords the astronomer a unique fov not capable in single lens scopes. It truely is like using two single scopes for each eye. Exceptional planetary views and incredible dept of our moons lunar surface. During dark clear nights,these giants reveal many objects otherwise unseen throughout our milkyway. All binocular targets displayed in my charts are easily observed through these giants but you need a steady tripod for panning and suppporting these 10lbers. For the money?..well, my eyeglasses cost 100 dollars more than these and all i can say is i feel i got my moneys worth! These are built using a hell of alot more materials ,backed by incredible engineering and even backed by a limited lifetime warranty for just over a few hundred dollars! can not go wrong.

Excellent Quality but it really is heavy

By

from Western Florida

Arrived well packed both from manufacturer and seller. Nice storage case. The optics are of excellent quality, especially for the price. Construction is solid as it basically has to be. It really is heavy. Too much for most of my tripods and even my heavy duty one barely handles it. The great view makes up for a lot of the handling problems tho.
