I was excited to receive these binoculars but was immediately disappointed at my first look through the eyepieces. The image clarity and brightness are not up to Celestron's standards. If you want to purchase a pair of first class binoculars you should look elsewhere!
Excellent value on these, we use them to view the night sky as well as wild life around our area. We live in a rural setting so there is quite a bit of wild life to view. This was a great deal for the cost. One thing, they are heavy for my wife, so attaching them to a tri-pod works very well.
I own a mix of binoculars & brands....now consisting of all sizes from 7x35 to 10x50. Totally dissatisfied with Celestron's earlier roof prism "nature" 10x42 (#71327) open bridge model I purchased & quickly returned 3 years ago. These newer DX glasses from Celestron are well constructed w/ nice features & much improved optic quality. I was expecting slightly crisper image detail here for price & included phase correction....as compared to my cheaper $ glasses which don't have PC but match all else. Nature DX delivers bright, edge to edge clarity + true color resolution w/ generous FOV. Diopter adjustment on mine tends to overcorrect. Happier exterior body color is actually a darker shade green (forest) color than pictured. If looking for quality mid-size binoculars between = compact...10x25 and full-size...10x42, these are quite decent !
