SAVE YOUR MONEY SAVE your money.I usually do not venture into bargains like this but I know Celestron and I figured I would give them a try.After about 15 minutes of fiddling with them I have come to realize "focus" is a concept that escapes the capabilities of these binoculars.I will be sending them back. 1Excellent inexpensive binoculars. Perfect for young children. My great-nephew is very bright, and a pretty big guy for a four-and-a-half year old... and he loves to go hiking with Mom and Dad, so I wanted to get him some binoculars of his own. He's also a fairly "rough-and-tumble" sort, so I felt that the binoculars should be able to withstand a good bit of wear and tear.I first looked at the "Kidwinz Shock Proof 8x21 Kids Binoculars", which seemed to be nicely designed... but several reviews pointed out their tendency to rather easily break, due to their all-plastic body construction.In searching for a more rugged all-metal design, I came upon the "SkyGenius 8x25 binoculars", which were only slightly more expensive than the Kidwinz, so I ordered a pair. Unfortunately, when they arrived, I found them to be so badly out of collimation as to render them unusable, and I returned them.Having been an observational amateur astronomer for more than six decades, and having owned a classic Celestron C8 telescope for the past forty years, I finally decided to go with the ultra-reliable Celestron brand, opting for these Outland 8x25s.As it turns out, this was the perfect choice. Their collimation is spot on, and daytime images though them are bright and sharp. The central-focus-knob turns smoothly, and with just the right amount of friction. The right-eye diopter focus-adjustment is significantly stiffer than the central focus... which is a good thing, since this means that once adjusted, it will retain that adjustment during normal handling of the binoculars.Interestingly, it appears that Celestron has elected to place a flat glass lens in front of the actual objective lenses, presumably as a form of protection from dust and fingerprints. I have owned and used a number of very-high-end binoculars -- as well as several more-moderately-priced ones -- and I don't recall ever having seen this feature on any of them.But this feature, to me, is a brilliant solution to the problem of allowing a young child to use a "good" pair of binoculars. Either by accident or on purpose, it is inevitable that most children will end up touching the front lenses of any pair of binoculars that they're trying to use. That these flat protective lenses are in place, simply means that an occasional light cleaning of them will never adversely affect the anti-reflection coatings on the real objective lenses.The all-aluminum construction of the Celestron Outland 8x25s is strong and precisely machined, so that folding or spreading the two halves is both smooth and positionally secure. The rubber coating allows for a very secure grip... and also provides a far more insulative touch to bare hands than a metal body, when used in cold weather. And one final thing that I very much appreciate, is that the minimum IPD (Inter-Pupillary Distance) on these 8x25s is a reasonably-narrow 56mm... making them very suitable for use by children.All-in-all, an excellent pair of "beginner" binoculars for an imaginative and adventurous youngster. Highly recommended. 5Exceeded my expectations. Excellent performance and value. I compared several binoculars that were triple the price of these, chose these because of other reviews, and am delighted. These replace a pair of Fuji 7x35's (8x42 in today's inflated ratings currency) that were dropped and died. I like the build quality these and the extra magnification compared the old ones. I live in the cloudy Pacific Northwest. These easily gather enough light for my purposes.I very much like the twist-up eyecups.Focusing is easy and quick. I have little technique of sighting using the center of binoculars like a gun sight. I acquire my subject and then just lift the binoculars in the same plane; it takes a little practice but works great with 10x binoculars. I learned it sailing off the coast with an old guy who had a pair of ancient 10x50 beasts.Take this as a general comment, although it applies to these bino's: They come with a silly bag and cheap straps, but are beefy enough to deserve a more comfortable strap, so I grabbed a strap from an old camera and am all set. I tend to grab binoculars in a hurry, so I don't encase them anyway. I also remove the caps first thing. Better putting caps in the trash rather than littering all over the country in the inevitable process of losing them. Because I have camera gear all the time, I have plenty of options for cleaning lenses. I store bino's in the glovebox of my car or have them in a pack, so they easily stay clean enough. 5Great quality at a low price. Fantastic binoculars! The quality of the image they provide is outstanding. You can pay more than twice as much for the equivalent Nikon binoculars, and the Nikons would probably be better, but they would only be 5 or 10% better, not twice as good.The 8x42 are perfect for me for birding, sight seeing, sporting events and stuff like that. They are a good balance of magnification,wide field of view, and brightness (exit pupil). The higher magnification 10x42 would also be good for these things, but you give up some field of view with the higher magnification. The extra field of view is helpful for following birds that tend to move around. It is easier to find the birds, and keep them in view. Higher magnification also means more image shake, the 8 power is easier to hold still than 10 power. The larger exit pupil makes viewing easier, even in bright daylight, because you can see the full image circle, even if your eyes aren't perfectly lined up behind the eye peices.I where eye glasses and these binoculars work great with them, I have no trouble at all seeing the full image circle. I just fully retract the eye cups with a twist, and I'm good to go.The eye cups make viewing with out my glasses very comfortable, I just have to adjust the diopter.They are a medium to full sized binocular, but I find them light enough to cary around my neck all day. Lighter than my 7x50s ,but not quite as bright at dusk or for looking at the night sky.They are nitrogen purged and waterproof, so they won't fog up, on the inside, and you can use them in the rain with no worries. If they get dunked in the river when you are canoeing, they should be fine.All in all, I think that for the money they are excellent quality, and being nitrogen purged at this price makes them even a better buy. 5Great set of binoculars! Would definitely recommend giving them a try. These binoculars feel sturdy, not light and not too heavy they satisfy my "holding test" of signifying a well-built product. The optics are very clear and the rendition is more than I need: at 25 yards I can read the nutrition facts on a yogurt container, meaning that the clarity is enough to produce sharp, crisp lettering. Contrast is good and I honestly cannot find much complaint at all in the reproduction of what I'm seeing though the lenses. I'm glad I did not spend more.I was looking for a decent pair of binoculars that I could take hunting, fishing, scouting/animal watching, etc. but felt amiss in spending over $100. I've been into photography for a long time so I can appreciate good optics and know what they can do for an image; however, since I felt like I was not taking pictures through a pair of binoculars in other words not reproducing the image I see in real life for preservation into another medium I felt like I could compromise a bit since the best possible optics were not necessarily needed for purposes of observation, rather than image reproduction. I almost bought the $178 Nikon Prostaff glass but feel great about this purchase overall and better that I didn't spend three times the amount. This is not to say that the Prostaff glass would not have been better, i'm sure it would; however, there is a point of diminishing returns and I think I hit that cusp perfectly with this purchase. 5The 8X42 Outland X rock! Perfect for my Florida kayaking purposes. Surprised by quality / value. This review is for the Celestron 8X42 Outland X. (I say this to clarify because so many Amazon reviews are getting hijacked for other products these days! I hope this helps shoppers make a desicion in a world of conflicting reviews and highjacked ratings). These are, for my $100 max budget, exactly what I was looking for. These binoculars rock! I am not a binocular pro - just an amature enthusiast who often kayaks Florida s spring fed rivers. But, I understand optics from former professional experience. I did my homework before settling on this pair in this magnification power 8X42 (more power is NOT always better). I tried other name brands at various retails stores I am glad I gave the Celestrons a shot. Resolving power, magnification light gathering, color fidelity and many other objective and subjective assessments can be made about optics. Right out of the box, my perception was that these lenses where fantastic considering the under $90, I payed for them. I wanted waterproof / fog proof binoculars that I could reliably point and focus from close to far while in a moving/ bobbing kayak. I wanted an offset I could use with prescription glasses. I wanted eye cups that did not collapse easily once set to my liking. I wanted to be able to close focus to around 14 feet. I wanted the larger optics for light gathering and better contrast for the shade and bright sunny days on a Florida river. But I didn t want something bulky and heavy. They have a better build and finish than I expected. The rubberized waterproof finish feels and looks really good. I messed around with them indoors in low light when I unboxed them and I could read lables on food items 30 feet away. They are sharp. The focusing knob and right eye diopter adjustment feel just right not too stiff, not to loose. The inter pupil distance holds comfortable tight. I hope this helps someone! 5Great 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 (7x50 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 10x42 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 :3These are 8x42, 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 8-10x48 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. 4Celestron Outland X 10x42 Binoculars I almost didn't purchase this product because of the way the ocular adjustment was described in the review by "Hard Core Camper". However, knowing that Celestron has the reputation of producing what are normally high quality optics, I couldn't believe that adjusting the right eyecup could potentially force a person to have one eyecup as much as a 1/2 inch out of alignment with the other eyecup. Therefore, I took a chance and ordered the Outland X binoculars and I'm glad I did. For this price, I would defy anyone to find a better pair of binoculars on the market. For their size, they are relatively light weight and they produce crystal clear images. They come with protective coverings for the eyecups as well as the lenses and they are easy to focus. I live in FL where you frequently go from indoor air conditioning to outdoor locations that are hot and muggy and I have not experienced any noticeable fogging of the lenses. I think where "Hard Core Camper" went wrong was in the misunderstanding that when the principal focus wheel is adjusted, it should be done so in a manner that gives the left eye the best possible focus. Then, if the right eye is not in focus, yes, you must adjust that by turning the right eyepiece. While that can make the right eyepiece extend as much as about a 1/2 inch closer to your eye, depending upon upon how much turning it takes to give the right eye the the best focus, you can then turn the left eyepiece out to match the distance of the right eyecup. Turning the left eyepiece out WILL NOT change the focus of the left eye. It is simply an accommodation so that both eyecups are made equidistant from the binocular body. The bottom line is, you DO NOT have to be left with eyepieces that are misaligned. Overall, I think you will be very satisfied with these binoculars. 5Not as bright or crisp, focus not fine enough, but great for a beginner For what they are worth, these are good binos. I use them for birding out my backyard but would never consider taking them into the field for a few reasons:Pros:InexpensiveGood quality images/views for what they offerMy 9-11 year olds enjoyed them and found easy to use.Comfortable but a bit heavyCons-They produce dark images - not enough light gets in causing quicker eye fatigue especially in the earlier mornings and twilight.-Right eye piece is adjustable for custom visual fit, however it seems to easily go out of focus from one day to the next.- Focus is not fine enough. I find it very easy to roll past my focus point and have to back up and refocus. I have very good manual dexterity and fine motor skills but still experience challenges getting to my image quickly.I think these would make an excellent pair of binos for a kid interested in birding, possibly a new birder, or as an extra pair to loan a friend if your going to introduce someone to birding. BUT I d be cautious and forewarn the user that these binos are a bit tempemental and adjusting takes a bit of rolling back and forth with. I m in the market for a second pair of binos to keep by another birding window of my house and am hesitant to buy a second pair. 3Many adjustments. Well made binoculars, Just need to constantly be adjusting them to get a clear image. They will not hold the corrections. and you end up really having to moneky around with them alot. These were not a good buy for any kind of quick acquisition or spotting. You have to hunt for the picture and constantly handle them with white gloves despite the durable rubber coating. The was my first Celestron pair. 1

Turning the left eyepiece out WILL NOT change the focus of the left eye. It is simply an accommodation so that both eyecups are made equidistant from the binocular body. The bottom line is, you DO NOT have to be left with eyepieces that are misaligned. Overall, I think you will be very satisfied with these binoculars. 5Not as bright or crisp, focus not fine enough, but great for a beginner For what they are worth, these are good binos. I use them for birding out my backyard but would never consider taking them into the field for a few reasons:Pros:InexpensiveGood quality images/views for what they offerMy 9-11 year olds enjoyed them and found easy to use.Comfortable but a bit heavyCons-They produce dark images - not enough light gets in causing quicker eye fatigue especially in the earlier mornings and twilight.-Right eye piece is adjustable for custom visual fit, however it seems to easily go out of focus from one day to the next.- Focus is not fine enough. I find it very easy to roll past my focus point and have to back up and refocus. I have very good manual dexterity and fine motor skills but still experience challenges getting to my image quickly.I think these would make an excellent pair of binos for a kid interested in birding, possibly a new birder, or as an extra pair to loan a friend if your going to introduce someone to birding. BUT I d be cautious and forewarn the user that these binos are a bit tempemental and adjusting takes a bit of rolling back and forth with. I m in the market for a second pair of binos to keep by another birding window of my house and am hesitant to buy a second pair. 3Many adjustments. Well made binoculars, Just need to constantly be adjusting them to get a clear image. They will not hold the corrections. and you end up really having to moneky around with them alot. These were not a good buy for any kind of quick acquisition or spotting. You have to hunt for the picture and constantly handle them with white gloves despite the durable rubber coating. The was my first Celestron pair. 1
