Top makes and models offer comfort and style and provide technologies that allow you to focus on objects instead of fidgeting with equipment settings. Quality binoculars add pleasure for many entertaining hours of stargazing, both for amateurs and veterans alike.

Celestron specialises in optical astronomy equipment. The high-powered Upclose10X50 Porro binoculars provide bright optics for nighttime sky viewing. The use of Porro internal prisms, named after the inventor, in these binoculars means that the optical quality is the best for your dollar. It also means that the physical design is the classic bulky style and not streamlined or compact. The exit pupil is measured at 5mm, which means that the binocular can focus enough light from the dark sky to provide excellent viewing conditions. The water-resistant body has finger grips and protective rubber coating that makes it practical for humid conditions or beachside use. This practical pair of binoculars weighs a mere 851gr.
