Have been using these for a few weeks now and here is my feedback. The optical quality is excellent for the money with a fairly wide field of view. Not too heavy or bulky for a full sized nitrogen filled binocular. I get the impression that corners may have been cut slightly with the build, the white branding is already rubbing off after only a few uses, and the bag and straps are also pretty basic. That's not to say they don't feel well made - the binoculars have a solid feel to them and it's clear that Celestron have focused on making the optics as good as possible. The image clarity is exceptional and with the 42mm lens the brightness is great even in low light, which makes these perfect for birdwatching. I would highly recommend these binoculars for anyone looking for a decent set without a premium price tag.
- Excellent optics
- Bright, clear image
- Precise focusing
- Good value
- Superficial rubbing away
- Case and strap not the best
- Focus wheel squeaks slightly on occasion

My rating is based on quality/price ratio and at just over £100 for the 8x42 these are never going to be the best binoculars out there, however, at this price point I think they are excellent. I bought these for my son to use on wildlife walks. I opted for the 8x42 as I felt anything with more magnification wouldn't provide a steady enough image for him. I had also read that they fold close together so would be ok for his smaller head and they do fold close enough for him to use comfortably.
They seem fairly well made and the image is bright and easy to focus with little chromatic aberrations. Overall I think these are very good for binoculars of the price and would be excellent for beginners. I would be less sure if they were at their full price of £160 as there might be a better options at that price point.

Cracking pair of binoculars for the price! Much better than other similarly priced binos I've tested - can't fault these. Sturdy build, good optics, and comfortable to use. Very pleased with my purchase.

I purchased these on the advice of a friend who is very much into birdwatching. The binoculars are nice and bright and offer a very clear image, as well as a good field of view. I opted for the 8x42 model because I was told this had a wider field of view which is better for amateurs like me. It's quite heavy but the quality of the lenses more than makes up for that. Excellent value for money too!

Well designed and feel very high quality. Can be used with glasses which is essential for me. Image is sharp and clear and the binoculars are very easy to focus. Comfortable to use for long periods as well. Given the price of these I am extremely impressed.
