Large 70mm objective lenses
The 70mm objective lenses have tremendous light gathering capabilities, delivering superior low light performance, even in the dimmest conditions. Choose SkyMaster Pro for use at dusk, dawn and nighttime astronomical viewing.
Fully Multi-Coated optics and BAK-4 prisms
Every air-to-glass surface is multi-coated with Celestron’s proprietary XLT coating technology. These coatings coupled with BaK-4 prisms increase light transmission through the optical path and deliver crisp, high contrast images with outstanding resolution.
Built-in tripod adapter
The built in tripod adapter of the SkyMaster Pro 15x70 allows the binocular to be attached to a tripod for added stability during longer viewing sessions.
RSR “Reflex Sight Ready” rail
The tripod adapter also enables a red-dot finder to be attached via the included RSR “Reflex Sight Ready” Rail. When properly aligned, the red-dot finder will allow objects to be brought into view quickly.
Lightweight, waterproof construction
A polycarbonate and Aluminium housing makes SkyMaster Pro durable and lightweight. The housing’s protective rubber armour is extremely rugged and can stand up to tough use.
The fully waterproof housing for use in all weather conditions provides peace of mind when unexpected weather rolls in. The housing is also filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent the internal lenses from fogging when moving between extreme temperatures or when using the binocular in damp conditions.
17 mm of eye relief allows for comfortable viewing for both eyeglass and non-eyeglass wearers. Eyeglass wearers can see the entire field of view while looking through the eyepiece with their glasses on. For those that do not wear eyeglasses, the rubber eyecup positions the users eye behind the eyepiece at the correct distance for optimal viewing.
Bring distant objects into view with 15x magnification—great for observing celestial objects in greater detail, searching for wildlife in the brush or viewing a distant object on the horizon.

For £129 I have found these to be very good. I am no expert on Binoculars but the quality is worth the money. I'm a new customer to FLO and delivery & service from them was very good.
I decided to make the purchase after reading the review from Steve at Binocularsky.
For Bird watching at a distance they are fantastic, and at night I now see stars I didn't know existed, as for the Moon it looks fantastic.
You can hand hold these for a very short time but a mono pod / tripod makes all the difference and is highly recommended. Just make sure the ball head you have is strong enough to hold the weigh, as the binocular bracket is fairly tall and the ball head will not hold it if it's a light weigh one. You need to take this in to consideration, that the extra weight that is added to the ball head when looking straight up at the sky. I have now upgraded my ball head to hold 20KG.
Good astro binocs, also for nature!

Clear, bright and sharp image for a price of a good normal binoculars. I've spent a few hours with these both under dark skies, and also on beaches and trails looking for birds and animals.. If you are physically in a any decent condition, these are not too heavy for occasional handholding but for extended sessions I recommend using a tripod, or monopod with a ball head. I tend to keep my hands rather close to the objective lenses as it improves the stability of the image. They are best on a monopod with a slightly loose ball head - you'll be flexible enough for scanning but sturdy enough for stable image. I like these very much!
