Description

Celestron SkyMaster 15x70 Center Focus large-aperture astronomy binoculars offer state-of-the-art technology and phenomenal performance. Despite their "SkyMaster" name, these astronomy binoculars are nearly as exceptional for long-distance terrestrial use. SkyMaster binoculars bring star fields, Jupiter and its moons, Saturn's rings, and globular star clusters into clear view, allowing for a spectacular and unique peek at the universe.

 

The SkyMaster 15x70 features high-quality BAK-4 prisms and multi-coated optics for enhanced contrast and maximum light allowance. Additionally, Celestron has designed and engineered the larger SkyMaster models to meet the special demands of extended astronomical or terrestrial viewing sessions. In dark-sky environments, even such objects as galaxies and nebulae are within reach of a Celestron SkyMaster Binocular. For added utility and convenience, the Celestron SkyMaster 15x70 binocular is water-resistant and tripod-adaptable with the included tripod adapter.

 

Additional SkyMaster 15x70 Features:

 

  • Soft case included
  • Tripod Adapter included
  • BaK-4 Porro Prisms
  • Multi-coated optics for sharp, clear views
  • Large aperture perfect for low-light conditions and stargazing
  • Diopter adjustment for fine focusing
  • Minimum interpupillary distance, 60mm
  • 4-element objective lens for ultra-sharp focus across the field of view
  • No-fault lifetime warranty

 

Included Tripod Adapter

 

The Celestron 15x70 SkyMaster binoculars include a tripod adapter for fixing the binocular to any standard photo tripod.  To install tripod adapter simply un-thread the logo cap in front of the focus knob on the front of the binocular.  This will reveal a female thread to install the tripod adapter.  Then simply connect the binocular to your tripod for ultra stable viewing.  

 

Ideal for stargazing.... but also excellent for daytime use

 

The 15x70 SkyMaster is excellent for night time stargazing and lunar viewing but also shine for long-distant terrestrial applications.  Point the binocular at scenic mountain ranges or view ships out on the water for amazing views at 15x magnification.

I purchased a pair of these back in March to assist in locating Deep Sky objects. I was amazed at the views these binos provide, especially at the price. I do not have a problem with the weight and have devised a few methods that make scanning the skies quite comfortable for extended periods of time....without a tripod. A tripod would have made these useless to me as I already own a pair of Zhummell 25x100 Binos. Now those are heavy. I have accumulated a nice arsenal of gear over the past couple of years including an 8 and 10 inch Dob, ETX 125,Stellarvue 80mm Refractor and tons of accessories and after spending all that cash (thousands by now), The [$] I spent on these was loose change......and they have to be the best money and value I have spent on this hobby so far. I like them so much, I bought a second pair (I don't like to share these) for the wife and guests. They are a constant companion when stargazing and are usually around my neck. I even added a red dot finder to my pair to make locating DSO's easier. All in all a great value and great companion for whichever scope I use. Considering the 25x70 as well....just to have! This hobby is like a boat, except the hole is in the sky...lol and the funny thing is, I don't mind. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for bigger aperature and magnification and don't mind the small sacrifices that entails, such as added weight and unstable views. If you want rock solid, buy a tripod or a set of 10x50. But for quick scans and as an aid in locating DSO's, these are among the best available for a reasonable price. Nice job Celestron

[...]Binoculars seem sturdily built. But no instructions were contained (I don't know if there are supposed to be any, although binoculars are no-brainers to operate properly).BUT the collimation was very wrong(!), causing double images (yes, of course I first adjusted the interpupillary distance, which for me is approx 63mm). Rather than go through the hassle & shipping cost of returning/exchanging, I learned how to collimate the binoculars (while at the same time preserving the exit pupil shape as best as possible). I found that the prism adjustment screws weren't even adjusted. Once collimated, the binoculars give nice views (Orion nebula, for example).Not sure what to say - I didn't expect perfection at this price point (<[$]), but I did expect aligned optics. Bottom line is that the Sky Master 15x70 binoculars are nice for the price, but you need to personally try one to ensure it's properly assembled/adjusted. Whether this means that the only way to ensure a good binocular is to buy at a local store vs internet, I don't know. I think one needs to consider internet ordering of precision optical products with a common sense approach, being prepared to deal with possible irritants.

      I bought a pair for my husband last year. Living I. AZ we have many opportunities for star gazing. These bring it all closer. I bought a pair for my dad this year to replace his telescope that he had to sell. Now he can enjoy the stars any where he goes. Easy to use, fairly light weight and good clarity.

      Comments about Celestron SkyMaster 15x70mm Center Focus Binoculars:

      I've owned a pair of 15x70's for nearly a decade and I wouldn't go out observing without them. I use them for locating nebulae, galaxies etc at Star Parties, before I use my 10' SCT's 60mm finder or red dot finder. I scan the Milky Way, observe M42, Jupiter and Saturn and hunt comets with them. A Field tripod is a good investment, but I mainly use them with my LaFuma lounge chair, or hand-held.

        Customer Q & A

        1 - 5 of 12
            1   2      

        Q1: If I buy it will it come with a strap and a carry case or do I need to get those things separately?

        A: The Celestron 15x70 does include a strap and a carrying case.

        Q2: How do these compare in physical size to a "standard" pair of porro prism 10x50s?

        A: They are quite a bit larger. The chambers are longer and wider. This one is recommended to be used with a tripod.

        Q3: Does the SkyMaster 15X70 include a photo tripod adapter so I can use it with my current tripod?

        A: Yes, they have a built-in rigid photo tripod adapter.

        Q4: What are the dimensions of the SkyMaster 15x70 Center Focus Celestron binoculars?

        A: The dimensions of the Celestron Skymaster 15x70 are 7.9" x 9.3" x 3.6".

        Q5: The Skymaster 15x70 binoculars are are said to be fully coated. Do you mean fully multi-coated, that is coating of all air to glass surfaces and is the coating magnesium fluoride?

        A: The Skymasters are fully "multi-coated" and it is a magnesium fluoride coating they use.
