Awesome bino's for star gazing, I have a pair myself. A bit on the heavy side, but worth it for the stunning images. I would recommend a tripod.

Cheapest they have ever been, according to the camel triplets, I paid more.

For the budding Patrick Moore's out there, give your mince pies a treat

SkyMaster Pro binoculars are the ideal choice for amateur astronomers or anyone that observes at great distances. Compared to lower-priced large aperture binoculars, SkyMaster Pro uses superior optics, coatings, internal parts and housing materials. With large objective lenses, BaK-4 prisms and fully multi-coated optics utilizing Celestron’s proprietary XLT coating technology, the view through a SkyMaster Pro is second to none at this price point.

The 80 mm objective lenses have tremendous light gathering capabilities, delivering superior low light performance, even in the dimmest conditions. Choose SkyMaster Pro for use at dusk, dawn and nighttime astronomical viewing. The built-in tripod adapter of the SkyMaster Pro 20x80 not only allows the binocular to be attached to a tripod for added stability but it also acts as a balance rail by sliding along the center support rod. A red-dot finder can also be attached to the center support rod utilizing the removable rail. When properly aligned with the binocular, the red-dot finder will allow objects to be brought into view quickly.

Box Contains Celestron SkyMaster Pro 20 x 80 Binocular. Tripod Adaptor. Rainguard. Neck Strap. Lens Cloth. Soft Case.

  • Large 80 mm objective lenses for excellent light gathering in low light conditions or for astronomical observing.
  • Detachable RSR rail for attaching an optional red dot finderscope.
  • Rubber armored for improved ergonomics and protection from every day use in the field.
  • Waterproof and nitrogen purged for use in all weather conditions.

I have a pair of these. Impulse buy. I wasn’t expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the optics. Build quality is not fantastic but for the price I wasn’t expecting Zeiss....

It would be customary to state the objective lens size and magnification as part of the description.

A spotting scope does a great job and has more magnification.
That said heat for the price.

I have the 15x70 and they very quickly become too heavy to hold - so a tripod for these large binoculars is essential.

Stuff I can see with my 15x70 (on tripod)
- Jupiter's moons. 4 distinct dots (Jupiter still just looks like a bright star though, no bands!)
- Andromeda Galaxy - very dim grey smudge but still amazing to see
- Orion nebula looks awesome
- Just loads of stars, that's the main draw - you really appreciate the sky is FULL of stars

Any image you like, magazine images, billboard images, photographs, you may need to stand a minimum distance of 30m away though

True, but you will be able to see more stars, as the dimmer ones will be brighter. Check out the seven sisters.
Btw, I saw your user name and remembered it from the massive Ferrari g3 thread years ago.

I've moved on to ooni gas ovens now, after 4 years with the Ferrari and a Giles and Posner.

If you are still making pizzas, check out the ooni koda!

Don't be so bloody ridiculous. We're too busy with our heads up our asses to notice the smog. Fortunately the sun shines out of them, so we have no problems seeing a star
At this price would a telescope not be a better option for star gazing.

More seriously though, if you go somewhere like the Australian outback or 4500m up in the Bolivian Andes the amount of stars you can see is absolutely amazing. (I'm sure other people can point out other great places to view stars.)

Whatever you point them at....if you remember to take the lens caps off the big end first.

What's the difference between cooking a pizza in a conventional oven using the correct tray with holes all over and using one of these dedicated pizza ovens ?
Here for the Binos, but I'll take this one. I always see people recommend binoculars instead of a telescope, but for this price, which is really better? I want to snap a pic of the moon really...

Conventional oven will hit 250c max, an dedicated one will top around 500c cooking on a heated stone of 400-450c - Pizzas in 60 seconds! :-)
