The aluminum body not only provides structural integrity but also helps to minimize weight for enhanced portability.I have a monopod too which I use for quick looks withthe binis, but the tripod is much better for longer more stable views of objects.

Like the majority of binoculars I review, these SkyMaster's are tripod adaptable, but unlike most "standard", general use binoculars, the need to attach these to a tripod is far greater. Celestron™'s SkyMaster Series of large aperture binoculars are a phenomenal value for high performance binoculars ideal for astronomical viewing or for terrestrial (land) use - especially over long distances. The 8x56 and 9x63 models are waterproof and feature a shock-resistant rubber covering, and twist-up eyecups.I tried this extreme and this difference did not seem to affect the eye-relief too much, so I do not think that this is anything to worry about. Looking at smaller deep-sky objects, like planets, stars and clusters a tripod is pretty much essential to keep the view steady enough. Please be aware that The Widescreen Centre cannot be held responsible for any postal or third-party delays that may occur.

On most binoculars this grip location is also at or fairly near to the balancing point on the device, but because the barrels are so long and the objectives so large on these SkyMaster's, I found that this is not the case on these and if you simply hold them at this point with your forefingers on the top and your thumbs underneath, they want to tip forward.Its large 70 mm objective lens offers maximum image brightness in low-light and long-range conditions. ULTRA CLEAR IMAGE – Multilayer-coated aspherical lens elements provide superior light transmission and minimal distortion, better image brightness, contrast, and quality. But please don’t immerse the binoculars in water) The unique non-slip ergonomic design of the handles on both sides is made of environmentally friendly rubber material, full of concave and convexity, comfortable to hold in the hand and not easy to slip off. Although they may occasionally have misaligned prisms, similar to the 25x70s, the lower magnification is more forgiving of such issues.
