Celestron’s SkyMaster Giant 15×70 binoculars are 10% off for Black Friday
[UPDATE] This high-resolution binocular from Celestron is now 10% off in an early Black Friday deal. It was briefly knocked down by a full 25%, making is just $69.99, then it was 15% and has been dropping ever since so time may be running out. Unfortunately, deals don’t stick around very long, so the price has now gone back up to $89.95 – which is reflected in our updated headline. The new price still offers a $14.09 saving on the original price, but you might be able to find some better discounts in our round-up of the best Black Friday binoculars deals.
Celestron’s Skymaster Giant 15×70 binoculars are on sale right now for $89.95 at Amazon, and the highly-rated set is perfect for those looking to go a step beyond basic binoculars.
With a generous 70-millimeter objective lens, these binoculars are perfect for observers who want to see more detail in faint objects such as nebulas or galaxies. The binoculars come with a case and a tripod adapter. You may also need a tripod to avoid shaky viewing at such high resolution.
Viewers with eyeglasses or visual disabilities will appreciate the long eye relief of 20 mm, along with the fine diopter adjustments to optimize the binoculars for your eyesight. The package also includes multi-coated optics and a water-resistant frame that will keep dew out during twilight or sunrise.
You’ll find that this is a high-quality set of binoculars at a great price point. Images will be very sharp thanks to not only the multi-coated optics, but also the included BaK-4 prisms.
Once you get yourself situated in the field and give your eyes 20 minutes or so to adjust to the darkness, another benefit is the diopters allow each eye to have an individual focus point, which is not the case with all binoculars.
User reviews report that even at a lower price point than some competitors, Celestron holds consistent with what amateur astronomers require. You can expect great contrast and excellent brightness in dark-sky conditions, especially towards the inner 75% of the field of view.
You’ll be able to see sky features such as the larger moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, and fine details in some of the brighter sky objects such as M31 (The Andromeda Galaxy), which is the closest large galaxy to Earth.
Celestron is a trusted brand name for both binoculars and telescopes, and users report that this particular set is very durable and usable despite its low price point. Happy skywatching!
