Although binoculars come in a variety of sizes and prices, the Celestron SkyMaster Giant 15×70 Binoculars with Tripod Adapter is one of the leaders for low-priced giant binoculars. These binos include multicoated optics and BaK-4 internal prisms which promise bright images. Even though images may seem a little soft across the outer 25% of the field of view, the overall view is still very impressive for such a bargin price. The distance you hold your eyes away from the eyepiece to see the full field of view is stated to be 18 mm, which is a good distance for higher powered binoculars especially taking into consideration those who must wear glasses when viewing. For those on a limited budget, these binoculars are an excellent value for astronomical viewing or terrestrial watching. Binoculars come with a soft carrying case.

Average Customer Review is 4.3 out of 5 stars. See all 910+ customer reviews here. Below are what some buyers have said about this particular pair of binoculars:
5 Star – “For the casual observer binoculars are the superior choice. They are everything that a telescope is not…relatively cheap, light, easy use. And because they are so easy to use, you will end up using them much more often than you would a cumbersome telescope.”
4 Star – “Unless you are very, very steady, you will need a tripod or these wonderful binos may end up being a burden. You may be able to hold steady for awhile, but to really enjoy them for any amount of time, go ahead and get a tripod if you don’t have one.”
3 Star – “The optics are truly amazing for the price. The field is wide, the image is bright, razor sharp and with fine contrast and color rendition. My complaint is with the center focusing mechanism which tends to drift and requires constant attention.”
