Celestron Granite 42mm Binoculars 8x42
Model: cel_granite_8x42_71370Part Number: 71370
Celestron Granite ED Series Roof Prism Binoculars are the pinnacle of optical and mechanical design. They stand up well against the much more expensive European and higher end Japanese manufactured binoculars at a fraction of their cost - a real value!
Granite ED Binoculars feature ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass, delivering edge-to-edge sharpness with excellent color correction and razor sharp images while virtually eliminating chromatic aberration.
State-of-the-art modern open frame style provides an excellent grip and is comfortable to handle (even single handed) with the reduced weight.
The body is made of magnesium alloy which is lighter than aluminum and more rugged and tough for handling in any environment.
Had these for about two years now and very pleased with them. My partner wears glasses and can use them fine, the eyecups give plenty of room when down and are comfortable to use when up if you don’t wear glasses. The frame is very easy to hold even when wearing gloves and we find are light enough to hand hold. The flip down eye caps are floppy so we always remove them before any use so they aren't in the way. The views are very bright and crisp day or night and the wide field of view is absorbing particularly on the night sky.
The Celestron Granite 42mm binoculars weigh approximately 633g / 23.4oz.
Granite ED and TrailSeeker binoculars include a binocular harness strap similar to a photographerâˆšâ‰ s Cuban hitch. This harness strap serves a dual purpose. Compared to the conventional neck strap (also included with your binoculars), the harness distributes the weight load of the binoculars to your shoulders and torso, taking the strain off your neck. It is very comfortable and also safely keeps the binoculars handy when carrying them during extended use.To use the harness, first find the small straps (about 6 inlong) that came with your binoculars. Remove the regular strap to get it out of the way. Thread the shorter straps (one on either side) onto the binoculars.Once you've threaded the short straps, you can don the harness. The mesh side will go against your back, while the perforated fabric side will face outwards. Pass your ams and shoulders through the two loops so the harness panel rests on your back. Next, clip the binocular's two short straps to the swivel hooks on the harness. You are now set to observe with your binoculars.
