Looking for specific info?

How much is the zoom difference between 10×42 and 12×50?

120/100 = 20 % in the magnification from a 10×42 to a 12×50

We are going whale watching, which would be better 8 x 42 or 10 x 42?

I own celestron 18-40x80mm for the sky view and canon 12×36 is iii for wild nature. Based on the experience and knowledge i have, using those 2 binoculars, i can tell you that higher a binoculars’ viewing power is, more details but less content on the view you will see, whereas weaker/lower viewing power a binoculars is, less details but more content you will see. Also higher viewing power helps you see things far away whereas lower viewing power helps you see things less far away.

The above said is not all that should be taken into consideration. The other factor is stability that must be well considered because the view through the binoculars does shake/wobbles. With higher viewing power ones, the view is more unstable when held by hands, whereas, with lower/weaker viewing power ones, the view is more stable when held by hands. That’s why my celestron 18-40x80mm is useless when held by hands because the view shakes and it makes my eyes very uncomfortable. Imagine you hold a level tool in your hands. Your hands shake and you can’t keep it still. You won’t be able to keep your hands steady holding a high-powered viewing binoculars in hands. That’s why i bought a tripod.

Taking these two binoculars into comparison, i’d go with 8 simply because the view would be more stable. Staying on a boat in the water, the stability wouldn’t be ideal.

(hope it helps assuming you haven’t watched the whales yet.)

Could these be worn around the neck comfortably?

I think so. The strap is good. The weight is really the main issue. Compare the weight of these to other models to determine if they would be comfortable or not.

They are good to take them to a music concert?

Would be yes. They aren’t that heavy.

Will these work for a 5-day african safari?

Depends on how close you will be able to get up to the animals you will be searching for and on the weight you are comfortable with hanging around your neck. I use them for wildlife viewing/birding and they work fine in and around different wildlife refuges and state parks. Also i purchased a different neck strap to help to make the binoculars less painful on my neck. Works great.

Are these binoculars auto focas?

Not at all.
They are ‘traditional’ binoculars, you have one central knob for adjusting the main focus and then on the right eye-piece you have another one for fine tuning.
All in all, they are excellent binoculars, i use them extensively for spotting marine mammals out in the open sea and they are well worth the money.

If not satisfied can it be free return ?

Yes

I lost one of the protective caps, how can i get another one?

Contact the manufacture on there website.

Are this o-ring sealed?

Yes these binoculars have sealed o rings and are waterproof and fogproof.

Can the lens be replaced

Celestron does not offer lens replacement for their binocular line.

What is the real weight, 2 pounds or 22 oz?????

2 lbs

Someone said only the green models are fully multicoated, the black models are not, is this true?

I’m sure both colors have the same level of multi coating. I think the discrepancy comes from celestrons website where in the description for the green it says, ‘fully multi coated’ and the black says, ‘multi coated’, but in the specs they are both listed, ‘multi coated’. Furthermore they are the same model of binoculars, the difference should only be color.

Does it come with the cell phone adapter?

No, it does not come with a cellphone adapter but one can be purchased separately.

Does it float?

No – the outland x 8×42 binocular will not float in water.

I just purchased these and can see my eyes or something moving around in the viewing area regardless of how i arrange them. What’s the issue???

Try adjusting the individual eye pieces. I have not had this issue with them.

How can i buy more than 3 of these units? I have a family safari and want a pair for all family members but only allows me to buy 3 🙁

Heck with ‘the man’!
Buy three with your name, address and cc number. Someone else in your family does the same.

I cannot seem to locate the minimum focus distance

I just received mine today. 8×25 outland x. Min focus distance is 8 feet +/- an inch or two.

Is this set good for bird watching?

I do feel they are great for bird watching! I am definitely an amateur bird watcher but love them.

Aside from cosmetics are these the same as the celestron cosmos tree of life 10×42 that retail for $100?

Cosmos tree of life are compact (5.3x2x4.9) 1.5 lbs, fully coated lenses, waterproof and fog proof. Outland x are midsized (7x3x8) 2.2 lbs coated lenses, fog proof and moisture resistant. If you aren’t planning on using them in extremely wet weather the outland x binoculars work great.

Amazing! Such a great price for what you get!

This was my first ever binoculars i’ve ever owned so i didn’t want to spend so much on the first one. I went through all the reviews to see which had great feedback at a reasonable price and ultimately decided on this. And is it absolutely amazing! Came exactly as described and its so sleek and comfortable and well made! Its also super easy to use and focus, its light so using it is easy. I could see the top of the mountain behind our backyard so clear! The weight really is great, since holding this for a longer time isnt a burden. Its also confortable to hold, specially for a female, and the case and covers are such a great bonus. Highly highly recommend!

Good binoculars – as advertised

Just received my 10×42 binoculars.

Nothing broken, work fine to awesome. They were $74 at the time of purchase and worth every penny.
Eye cups, diopter ring, focus all work as they should. You should ofc do your own research at celestron
before buying. This holds true for any manufacturer.
I’m just guesstimating, but i could read the license plate on a car 250 yds. Away.
I have no trouble focusing on objects that are at least a mile away.
No… These are not $1500.00 binoculars being sold for $74. But they are easily worth up to $100.

I am not a bird watcher. So all i really care about is sharp focus at a great distance. In that dept., these
are fantastic.

Best binoculars i've ever had

Love the compact design even if it loses a little bit of the light compared to a more traditional style. I can’t tell the difference, personally.

Great eye relief, easy adjustable cups for viewing with and without glasses.. And the highest power set of glass you can use without needing a tripod to keep the image steady. I love laying back at a campsite and looking up in the night sky with these (moon gazing is great with these), or scouting deep valleys, looking for small caves in a far away mountain side, etc.. Just awesome binos!

Rugged and high quality.

Perfect with eyepiece modification.

Nice set of binoculars. My main pair are swift 8.5 x 44 audubons with porro prisms. Obviously the swifts have much better and brighter optics, but the cost is also much higher. I have a heavily wooded lot and often sit with my wife in the garage(no porch) and got tired of running inside to get the swifts if i see an unusual bird so needed a set for the garage. I have spotted 81 different birds around my house in the last 30 years, but every once in a while see a new one. These have very good optics, only problem were the eyepieces collapsed every time i looked thru them. As pictured, i used a couple of zip ties on each lens and problem solved. Overall, they feel fairly cheap, focusing a little slow, and i found out i like porro prisms better for better depth of field(more 3d effect). That may not sound like a 5 star, but the price was right and they will do the job i wanted.

I used these in the amazon to see birds that were hard to find with the naked eye. They worked great! A few people with me had expensive leopolds and vortex binos, and were impressed with these, especially for the price.

Eyepiece fell off after 7 months

I really like these binoculars. They worked well for me, watching birds from my yard. They eye relief cups are easy to adjust. They’re not too heavy either.

The only problem i had was after 7 months, one of the eyepieces came lose and fell off. At first, i noticed the image in the two barrels were not aligned. Then, i noticed the left eyepiece was loose. Finally, it came off. Apparently, the action of removing the rubber dust covers put some strain on the eyepiece and the rubber armor that actually holds the eyepiece in place. Eventually, the rubber armor ripped (see image with pencil) and the eyepiece came free.

I definitely didn’t mistreat them. I’ve taken good care of these binoculars. The rubber surround holding the eyepieces just isn’t sturdy enough.

So, i emailed for an rma because it has a manufacturer lifetime limited warranty. The rma request was quick and easy. Initially, i called support. But, because the wait time was going to be too long, i decided to email them instead. In the email i explained the issue and included the same pictures. The next day they gave me an rma number and made it clear i need to include a check or money order to cover processing (just over 14). Also, all original parts need to be included. It sounds like they’re going to send me a new kit. I shipped the binoculars at my cost today. I might update this review if anything interesting happens.

So far, the cost to ship the binoculars plus the service cost is about 40% of my total original order. I guess that’s a good deal. Better than buying another pair.

Although, i’m not keen on the service cost, i understand and accept it. The build of the binoculars could’ve prevented the additional cost to me. Support was very responsive, though. In the end, i think i’ll be happy with the replacement.

I’m no binocular expert but these work very well. Easy to adjust, good combined view. Used for stargazing so far. Spectacular. Really makes a difference. I can easily read license plates from 100 yards.

Great multipurpose binoculars

These are pretty high quality binoculars, and perform quite well for the price. They come with some nice accessories as well.

All of the components work fairly well, except that the eye cup distance adjustment is a little too sensitive. When placing on the rubber eyepiece cover, it will turn/adjust them. You will need them set to maximum if you rest them against your eyes, or set to minimum if you wear glasses.

These are pretty good for birdwatching and low-light use.
For birdwatching, you want a low magnification such as 7-8, which will allow you to focus closely and have a large field of view so you can easily track movement. For night/low light use, you want the largest objective lens possible, to let a lot of light in. 42mm is fairly large for objective lenses (7×50 would be better, but you would have to switch to a porro-prism design which results in a full sized/heavy binocular.

If you want binoculars for looking at stars, i would suggest getting the 10×42 version as a minimum. A large objective lens and large zoom will help a lot. So you may want to consider a zoom binocular with a tripod. A telescope would be even better :3

these are 8×42, which is fairly uncommon, and on the large size for a bak-4 setup. 8x is perfect for a large fov and a close focal length (it’s something like 9 feet to infinity). The large 42 objective lens is fairly large, which gives you good vision in low-light conditions, as well as further expanding the fov. Bak-4 is going to give you the best quality, which is quite noticeable compared to other bak prisms, or the cheaper porro prisms.

I suspect that these are from the same chinese manufacturer as many of the generic unbranded/fakebranded 8-10×48 bak-4 binocs floating around, that run 60$ -80$ range. The company logo is a plastic sticker on a removable nut. The ‘outlandx’ lettering wipes right off with your finger. Even if they are from the same factory, the pricing here is fair, and generally us based companies will do their own qc to weed out any of the lower-end units that will slip through with the cheaper brands. Re-branding aside, the overall quality is quite good. The housing is completely wrapped in a thick rubber shell. It’s glued down fairly well and should provide plenty of durability. The lenses are clear, and they are sealed/waterproofed, so you don’t have to worry about particles/humidity ever appearing in them.

You can mount it to a tripod if you wish, by unscrewing the logo cap.

The objective lens covers have a ring to hold them on to the binoculars, and are tight enough that they won’t fall off when flipped down.

The eyepiece cover is flexible, and split on one side. You can easily tie a lanyard (like paracord) around the unsplit side, and clip that to the included neck strap, so you won’t have to worry about losing it.

The included neck strap is fine, and will adjust short enough to let you carry these high on your chest, or low at your waist.

The included bag is is padded, and decently made. It has a clip-on strap and two d-rings. There is also a pocket where you can keep a small booklet, or the microfiber cleaning cloth.

Nice budget binoculars with quality still there!

Got these to take to the beach because i love sitting on the balcony with my beer looking out at the ocean plus looking up the boardwalk at all the sights and action. These came today so i tried them out for about an hour and was pleased with the optics and overall quality of these 10×42 celestron. I paid the current price of $83 which is a fair price but i looked back when i had purchased the celestron skymaster 15×70 astronomical binoculars i purchased in 2012 and i only paid $69. I think these should have cost at least $15 less in all honesty but since covid messed up trade and so many things this past year or so i guess it’s to be expected. So look around for a price drop’ i even seen video from only a year ago where they paid around $60 for these exact binoculars. That being said they are nice so overall satisfied at this point. Just lower the price a bit for us! My skyview 15×70 are still working great and i trust the reputation of celestron with my new ones.

They’re nice

First pair i’ve had. They feel good and solid, simple to use and work great. Only negative would be maybe that the eye cup adjuster things feel a little fragile but they’re working fine. Just over time i could see them wearing out with hard use. I got them to view some things in the night sky which they’ve been amazing for. I used them to see the andromeda galaxy for the first time and that blew me away.

Excellent binoculars for around $60!

I am a very experienced birder, and needed a good pair of 10x42s for some field work. I was pleasantly surprised to find that these do not suffer from nearly as much chromatic aberration as other binoculars of this size and price usually do. There was some chromatic aberration present, but it was a forgivable amount. The glass is of course not as crystal clear as a pair of nikon monarchs, but then again, you’re getting these new, waterproof, and fogproof for around only $60-$70. They were excellent in the field, allowing me to see colored bands on the robins, sparrows, etc. That i am studying. The focus is smooth and easy to use, as your index finger is able to rest on top of it when holding the binoculars. Since these have a magnification of 10, one must have steady hands to get a good still image, however, that is to be expected with any large binoculars. I found the shakiness to not be too distracting, and i imagine as i use them more, i’ll learn how to hold them better.

All in all, i am very happy with my purchase, as i tested two other pairs of 10x42s from other brands, and neither one came close to having the image quality and price range that these have, along with being water and fogproof.

Yes… They were surprisingly 'helty.'

Perhaps the biggest initial impression these binoculars made on me were the weight. I’d read a few reviews that referred to this weight issue… But also knew that they were only around 1 and half lbs… And that didn’t seem at all heavy to me… I’m a 6’3′ man and thought these reviewers were being a little silly. However, as soon as a i got them, i realized that i’ve indeed been used to a lightweight pair of relatively inexpensive 7×20 nikon travellite iiis, and that these more powerful celestron’s were surprisingly hefty. I like having these more powerful 10×42 binoculars… And it’s not like they’re overwhelmingly heavier… And i think i’ll eventually fall in love with the clarity and power of these binoculars. My old pair of nikons are really, really old and have been through a lot… So i hate to use them as a comparison with these new celestrons. A million years ago, the nikons probably had much more clarity than they do now. As for power of magnification 10x is indeed the high end of what i’d want to use without the need to mount them to a tripod for stability. It sometimes helps with these to have something to lean on. And who knows… If these were any lighter, it might harder to hold them without getting a jittery effect.
