Celestron SkyMaster 8×56 Binoculars

SkyNews editor Terence Dickinson has always wanted to offer readers first-class 8×56 astronomical binoculars. Now he has found them: Celestron’s SkyMaster 8×56 binoculars, the best combination of quality optics and reasonable price available in this size.

“In many ways,” he says, “the 8×56 is the ideal binocular for the backyard astronomer.” Collecting 25 percent more light than a standard 50mm binocular and 96 percent more than 40mm binoculars, the 56mm is the largest binocular that is still comfortable to hand-hold. Moreover, the Celestron SkyMaster 8×56 is the lightest 56mm binocular we’ve tested.

  • superb 8-power optics with a 5.8-degree field of view—perfect for astronomy, boating, birding and at the cottage
  • fully multicoated optics; no ghost imaging, even on the full Moon
  • twist-up/down eyecups for ease of use with or without eyeglasses
  • exceptionally light weight for a 56mm binocular
  • neck strap, lens caps and soft carry case included
  • lifetime warranty from Celestron
