For anyone seeking a pair of binoculars for stargazing but don’t want to drop a ton of money, the Celestron Skymaster 12x60 binoculars are probably your best bet. The 12x magnification gives detailed observations, especially with a tripod that can be attached to an adapter ( Celestron 93524 Roof and Porro Binocular Tripod Adapter purchased separately). They provide ample magnification (12x) so that you can zoom in on star clusters and far-away subjects and the 60mm objective lenses, whilst cumbersome, give a great deal more light through-put than more generalist 42mm binoculars.

The smallest pocket sized models are fully-multi coated to help provide better images since they are using less bright roof prism system. For those we’d recommend the recently reviewed Celestron Nature DX 12x56 because of their broader appeal given that they are of roof prism design and therefore more slender and lightweight. BAK-4, on the other hand, produces a round exit pupil that will allow you to see the entire field of view regardless of the lighting conditions. Eyeglass wearers will be pleased to note that these have 17mm of eye relief and thus you should be able to see a full image without black rings on the edges whilst keeping your glasses on.Maximum Inter-pupillary distance, therefore, is the measurement in mm from the center of the left eyepiece to the center of the right eyepiece when the binoculars are spread as far apart as possible.

Get ready for a night of astroimaging with your mount faster than previously thought possible with All-Star Polar Alignment. Celestron’s patented StarSense® Technology makes it easier than ever to locate objects in the night sky, even if you’ve never used a telescope before. Unless, of course, you plan to mount your binoculars on a tripod, monopod or other type of support, then the weight doesn’t matter. Small tweaking for collimation was done this morning on the 12x60's after I had them out yesterday and thought that the collimation was spot on. If the only thing you'll be using your binoculars for is viewing at a distance, then you may not see the value in paying for extra-close focus.And ‘cheap’ Porto prism bins usually suffer that ‘back and forth’ focus necessity as the focus arms are rarely slick enough to avoid some slack (probably the reason for the tight main focus wheel, to keep the arms in as ideal a plane as possible.

I guess they assume that people are planning to put this model on a mount, so the weight isn't significant enough to put on the box. Clear, bright views are observable through the large 60mm objective lenses, even in lower light conditions. I would have purchased the Nikons, but I wanted to have 12x60's and 25x100's instead of just the Nikons alone.

Eyecups are foldable, but offer very generous eye-relief, and you can make it perfect even for eyeglass wearers. Fantastic optics and great performance mean they sit at number one in our best binoculars guide, though they're much more expensive than the Skymasters reviewed here. Whether you want to view far-away wildlife or aviation shows even down into low light and twilight or you need a pair of binoculars for some decent stargazing the Celestron Skymaster 12x60s are a great option.
