Home Binoculars Giant Binoculars Celestron SkyMaster 15x70 Binoculars
SkyMaster 15x70 binoculars are large high performance binoculars ideal for astronomical viewing or for terrestrial use - especially over long distances. Each SkyMaster model features high quality BAK-4 prisms and multi-coated optics for enhanced contrast. Celestron has designed and engineered the larger SkyMaster models to meet the special demands of extended astronomical or terrestrial viewing sessions.
BBC Sky at Night Magazine Group Test Winner. The 15x70 version is one of the most popular models in the series. It offers serious large aperture light gathering in an affordable and reasonably lightweight configuration. This is arguably the best available binocular for astronomical use that is light enough for hand holding for shorter periods, and still having a larger aperture. Easily tripod mounted for astro or terrestrial use on a standard photographic tripod with the suppied L adaptor. As a terrestrial binocular, it excels in low light. For birding at dawn or dusk, and for wader or gull roosts, this binocular removes the need for a spotting scope. The magnification is high enough to resolve detail and for species recognition in poor light, whilst retaining a bright image. An exit pupil of 4.67mm is ideal for providing the correct sized light cone for low light use maximising all the available incoming light. This binocular is lightweight enough to hand hold for this purpose, or can be mounted on any popular photo tripod.Specifications:15x magnification porro prism binocularLarge 70 mm objective lens offers maximum image brightness in low-light and long-range conditionsUltra sharp focus across the field of viewMulti-Coated optics for sharp, clear viewsSuitable for terrestrial or astronomical viewingProtective rubber covering for ultra-firm grip Large center focus knob for easy focusingTripod adapter includedLong eye relief ideal for eyeglass wearersCarrying case included for travel and safe storage TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:OPTICAL DESIGN: Porro DIAMETER: 70 mm MAGNIFICATION: 15 xANGULAR FIELD OF VIEW: 4.4 °LINEAR FIELD OF VIEW (@1000 YDS): 230.406 ft (70.23 m)EXIT PUPIL: 4.7 mm EYE RELIEF: 18 mm NEAR FOCUS (BINOCULARS): 43 ft (13.11 m)PRISMS: BAK4 OPTICAL COATINGS: Multi-Coated CAPS: Yes STRAP: Yes CARRYING CASE: Nylon WEATHER PROOF: Water Resistant TRIPOD ADAPTABLE: Yes WEIGHT: 48 oz (1360.78 g)
Very pleased with these binoculars. Observational astronomy made easier. They are an entirely new experience. These 15x70 binoculars are about as much as I can handle without a tripod but, they come with an adaptor and fit on most camera tripods. That makes for very cool observation. Tka them anywhere. Super service, quick delivery. (08/08/2020) Yorksman - Yorks
Great value and clarity These are really beautiful binoculars considering their price and the clarity is very sharp. Very easy to focus. Great all round astro binoculars. (16/10/2017) Chris Brown - Suffolk
