Reviews

Brilliant Binoculars at a great price 100% recommend.
These Binoculars are superb and great value for money, they come with a very nice case with a strap. The Binoculars are light but have a good quality feel to them, there are lens covers for both ends, the dual focus is is great it actually allows me to use these without the need for glasses 🙂 It comes with Smartphone Adapter allowing you to attach it to your phone to take pictures but i haven't used that yet. I'm by no means am a binocular expert but for my uses these are excellent I 100% recommend these and I almost forgot all this at a superb price. Pros: BAK4 Prism, FMC wide-angle 42mm lens High Power 12x42 Dual focus Capability & Precise Adjustment (No glasses) Comes with a Smartphone Adapter Waterproof, Fog-proof and Anti-slip Grip Lifetime 100% full refund & return guarantee. Cons: Nothing.
Not disappointed!
These are certainly worth the money. I've paid £30-ish for binoculars before and they've been very poor, but these are superb. Mine have the Kylietech badge, but they're Sunagor optics with BAK4 prisms which make for a really bright, clear image, with good contrasts and good colours. Focusing is sharp and no discernible chromatics around high contrasts. They have a very solid feel, slightly rubberised body, nice to grip with, no shakes or rattles, also convenient for use with spectacles. Waterproofing and nitrogen-gas purged, they're certainly not lacking much you'd expect of more expensive binoculars. Light to carry but quite chunky, they're not exactly pocket-able, but that's to be expected with any 12x42's. You'd not want to take them on a long hike - perhaps look for something smaller in that case, but for bird-watching, on the boat, or sport, they're really hard to beat. Difficult to say what extra you get for paying twice as much. I have a pair of Barr and Strouds I paid £80 for and, okay, the B+S are superb, but these are much closer to that quality than I'd expected for the price. The only very minor niggle I have with mine is that the focus wheel is a little sticky and over-damped for my taste but this may loosen off and become more silky for fine tuning with use - certainly not a deal-breaker. The phone attachment? Well, it's a novel idea, but a bit fiddly to set up and I doubt I'll be using it much. I did hesitate over the purchase button, thinking you can't expect much at this price and I'd just end up with yet another pair of rubbish binoculars, and wishing I'd spent a bit more for a better pair, but I'm glad I took the plunge and certainly not disappointed!
Great set of small binoculars
Bought these small binoculars as I am disabled & housebound. I have fantastic views of Dartmoor & surrounding countryside from my bedroom windows. They are a great set of binoculars, they make Dartmoor feel like it is right outside my window! The picture is crisp & clear. I wear glasses & the instructions were easy to follow to set up & adjust . The price is also very reasonable. Would recommend.

Recently made myself and my 5y member of RSPB, and he loves the exploration and discovery of nature and birds. With bird watching comes the need for a good pair of binoculars. These are great quality for money. Why do some brands even try to sell binoculars 10 times more expensive? IT really does not add up. The frame is sturdy and will survive the rough handling of a 5 year old. The lens and quality of view is spotless, with a great magnification and sharp view. Focus is easy to adjust, as well as the ocular distance. The grip on the rubber feels safe. Comes with decent carry bag with shoulder strap, fit for purpose if nothing fancy. But then, less likely to raise unwanted attentions with bit fancy logos. Only very minor improvement is that they could come with the carry strap already fitted. The instruction pictures are tiny and not trivial to understand how to fit them. Took me a good 5 minutes.
Great magnification with clear sharp views
I’ve bought this binocular based on previous reviews, so I would like to write my own experience and return the favor. I’ve had two binoculars so far and my last one is not focusing well, so decided to invest on new one. My bedroom window has a great view over the valley, and I spend lot of time looking through that, and I always need a good pair of binoculars. This is very good quality binocular, and feels very solid and robust. Most importantly, it’s sharp and clear with very good magnification. I don’t think I should waste time writing about tons of words about it’s features and packaging ect, because for me, the most important factors are magnification and clarity. So, I’ve tried to take couple of pictures from my smartphone, through this and without it, so that it’s easy to get an idea about this. It was not easy to take pictures because of soft rubber ends around eyepieces. Due to this, the edges around circles are not well focused on my smartphone camera, but in reality, this is not the case. Hope this review is helpful at least a little bit and my effort doesn’t go to waste.
Very good quality, staggering value for money
This was my first pair of binoculars and they are absolutely fantastic value for money.They have also allowed me to reach new depths of immersion into nature that just wouldn't be possible without them. I never go on walks along the coast or in the countryside without them now. I didn't know anything about binoculars before i bought these and was unsure if I should buy a pair of binoculars or a spotting scope, or neither, because I was worried they would end up being one of those things you use once then never use again. After spending a good few days comparing these with all the other binoculars and scopes out there with various different specifications and prices, I settled on these as they seemed to have the best balance of performance and value. I am so glad I chose these particular binoculars, and even more glad I didn't chose a scope for my intended use. They have a good weight to them, feel very solidly built, and have a rubber coating to improve grip and offer some shock absorption if you were to accidentally, lightly bump them. They come with a lightly padded carry pouch with straps, good quality and fitting rubber caps for the lenses at both ends and a good chamois leather/suede cloth to wipe the lenses. Overall very good quality and they are packaged and presented well with a good finish. Now onto the viewing experience. The wide objective lenses combined with the wide eyepiece lenses provide a very wide field of view, this makes it very easy and pleasant for you to view things through, even for spectacle wearers, and gives you a very full and natural feeling view of whatever you're trying to get a closer look at. Some binoculars with the same size objective lenses as these have twice the magnification that these have (20x), but they tend to have bad reviews. The reason for this is extra magnification comes at a cost. The field of view will be a lot narrower, and the magnification is being stretched too much for the size of the objective lenses making the image lower quality. If you want a full and clear image that is pleasant to look at, you want a wider field of view, and if you want that image to be clear and crisp, then 10x magnification seems to be the sweet spot for 50mm objective lenses in my opinion. The BK4 prisms also add to the clarity and colour correctness of the image, which is a surprising feature to have for binoculars at this price range and spec. Overall, these binoculars are perfectly balanced and offer powerful magnification with a very wide, full and pleasant view. They are easy and smooth to adjust, well made and offer excellent value for money. I am more keen than ever now to go out and explore nature, knowing that I can see more of what is around me and in much more detail, especially where wildlife is concerned. I recently went to Mutton Cove in Cornwall to see if I could see some wild seals from the cliffs, I was lucky to see a bunch of seals there and actually managed to position my smartphone over the binocular lens, just about steady enough to take a few pictures. The imagine is slightly blurred as I was taking these pictures on my phone without a holder or tripod so was shaking a bit (you can actually see the reflection of my phone in some of the pictures), but i think you get the idea of how much of an advantage you have from having these with you at times like this. Cannot recommend these binoculars enough.
Compact and clear view
Just received these and went to work in the garden straight away and they are brilliant so easy to focus just turn the part on your right eye only the left doesn't turn get the focus and then you can look through as an even view with both eyes and just turn the wheel in the middle for your distance. I love the fact that they are pocket or handbag size no bulky things hanging around your neck so you can have them with you at all times for them unsuspecting moments. Definatly recommendable.

Excellent set of binoculars for the price 🙂
Celestron - Nature DX - 8x42: I have been looking for some reasonably priced but good quality binoculars to take on a planned safari, and these seem to fit my requirements exactly. I spent a long time looking around on the internet for reviews of binoculars, and these were mentioned as a very good quality / specification pair of binoculars for the price by one seemingly very experienced reviewer on what appeared to be an unbiased website. I have not had a chance to use them in anger so far to see how they stand up in the field, but I have taken them on the odd walk and they seem robust / well made, and the image quality to my eyes seems very good, although I don't have a £1500-£2000 pair of Swarovski binoculars to compare them too! They also seem very compact / lightweight for a 'full' size pair of binoculars. Generally very happy 🙂
Good quality bins for a budget price.
The 5 stars is based on quality/price ratio. At £90 these are never going to be the best binoculars out there, they are very much budget end bins. I bought these for use by my wife mainly for use on safari. We went for the 8x42 as I felt anything with more magnification would require more stamina to hold steady. Also the 8x42 had a longer eye relief which is important as she wears glasses. I had also read that they fold close together so would be ideal for her small head - they do indeed fold close enough for her - and would also be suitable for many children. She thought they looked big but I think they are quite compact and light for an 8x42. The build quality looks solid enough. The case and strap are not the best but the binoculars themselves (the important bit) looks good. The image is bright and easy to focus. My eyesight isn't great but to my eyes the image was reasonably sharp to the edges. There was minimal chromatic aberrations. Overall the image was very acceptable for cheap binoculars. There is a mount point for an adaptor for use with a tripod or monopod. I can't see us using a tripod with them but I think she may benefit using a monopod if she has to hold them for a long time. I already have a monopod so we will dive that a go. I have no idea how well they will stand up over time? Due to my very poor eyesight in one eye I tend to use a monocular but I might borrow these for a bit of birding from time to time. Overall I think these are good value for money at £90. I am not convinced I would pick these if they were at their highest price of £160 as there might be a better option at that price point.
EXCELLENT Value for Money, a really lovely pair of binoculars
12month review - Bought these for my young son as his first pair of decent quality binoculars. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SHORT SUMMARY - seriously, just buy them, used these for a year and they are super. These are lightweight, really good quality optical images with very adaptable use cases from bird watching to astronomy. My sons has a very high opinion of these binoculars. He loves them. Excellent Value for Money for a super optic BIT MORE INFO - PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION Excellent quality of view for the price - there is zero noticeably photochromic aberration in any situation, the exit pupil is great for low light situations. Eye Relief, I wear glasses and eye relief is perfect using with them fitted. Obviously, at night I use them without glasses and the eye relief is easy to change between them with 3 firm twist positions Light weight - easy to handle for long periods of time with no shake from heart beat, at about 600g perfect weight to take on a hike. Comfort of Use, nice position of indents in the bridge moulding and not at all slippery. Feel really nice to hold Focusing - the focus movement is easy to move and fast to adjust Covers, easy to use, offer good protection. Easy to flick them off with your little pinkie finger when you spot something to investigate USE CASES Birdwatching, very adaptable being light and easy to focus so very easy to keep up with moving targets, often using in low light and image is still really decent as they have good exit pupil 42/8 = >5mm Astronomy - great for a quick star gaze, light enough to not have heart beat twitching you get with heavier binoculars, yet they do catch a lot of light so easy to see clearly, likes of the Beehive, Andromeda or Orion's Scabarb. I will repeat, my son has found these a great piece of kit to help learn and enjoy birdwatching or his our way around the night sky. Value for Money - EXCELLENT
Well done Celestron! Read on and thank me later 😆
After reading some of the reviews, I was like I have to buy this pair and review it. Read the entire review before watching the video. The footage trough a phone never do the optics justice especially in a very cloudy day. A bit of background, I am an optics freak who tested and owned more than twenty pairs of binoculars, to name some of the brands Bushnell, Vortex, Nikon, Minox and Steiner all ranging from £300 to about £500 Here is what I look for in a pair of binoculars to pass my test for birding purpose. Good FOV Reasonable edge to edge sharpness Neutral colour rendition Good Eye relief Sharpness in the centre and well controlled chromatic aberration. Absence of lens flare, reflection and ghosting Good barrels alignment Good ergonomic Now testing binoculars under different light conditions will ultimately provide an overall score of the image quality but for this review my test was under a bright sunny and slightly hazy spring day. First time handling the Celestron, it was nice surprise, they felt compact and rather easy to handle with one hand. I do like the design and the green rubber armour. Looking through them was a breeze, eye relief was excellent and alignement or the barrels is spot on. There was no overlapping or the need to readjust my eyes. The view is totally relaxed, immersive and almost with a 3D feel that you get in Porro prism. So far two major areas passed with flying colours. At this point I am slightly annoyed since my benchmark binocular that cost 3 times the price has one issue and that is having to readjust my eye positioning. Let’s moving on! Image quality is where I am very demanding, the first thing I noticed colour pallet packs a punch, leaning toward warmth which surprisingly I found it to be rather nice to have popping colours coming from my neutral benchmark binocular. Sharpness test, a binocular is worth nothing if it cannot precisely focus to pick out details. Well, let me tell you this pair is a bad boy when it comes to center image sharpness, I was actually picking out fine details on leaves about 20 meters away, quite simply gob smacking at this price point. The field of view was decent and never felt narrow, it’s not a 8° + but better than some 8x42 double the price. The sharpness across the FOV start to soften from about 75% from the centre, this acceptable at this price point and who cares really since most people would be glassing in the centre of the image! CA is well controlled with a small hint in the centre but overall really well suppressed. In my test there was no flaring and straight light from the sun was nicely controlled. This is an area where most entry level binoculars fails miserably and makes the binocular almost unusable. The only thing that was clearly apparent between the Celestron and my 8x42 Opticron Natura ED is the brightness of the image. The Celestron has really punchy colours but lacked the luminosity that my Opticron provides. Despite the Celestron had a less brightness the image remained vibrant and I could still make out the same details. I would still consider it just because how well it executes other areas like the immersive view and sharpness. My Opticron delivers outstanding light transmission & colour fidelity that matches the Zeiss conquest HD. If you have a budget of £100 go with Celestron and you would be very happy but if you want top quality glass without breaking the bank, I suggest you take a look through Opticron. If you have nothing to compare the Celestron to ie a £600 pair of binocular these would surprise you by their sharpness and lovely vibrant colours. Btw I test binoculars side by side before purchasing and I when purchased my Natura ED I put it up against Vanguard Ed II, Nikon HG and Zeiss Terra ED
