Looking for some great astronomy binoculars that won't break the bank? This pair of Celestron SkyMaster 20x80 binoculars might be just the thing.
If you want to do some stargazing this summer, you'll want a pair of the best binoculars around - and the Celestron SkyMaster 20x80 is well worth a look.
This pair of binoculars offers 20x magnification and is great at dawn, dusk, or night. It comes with a tripod adapter, and is durable, too.
With a new deal at Amazon, however, you can get the whole set, with a carry case, for just $127.83 - a price drop of 36%.
Key features: 20x magnification, includes carrying case, tripod adapter
Price history: Before today's deal, the Celestron SkyMaster 20x80's prior models had been cheaper - back in 2017. While there have been discounts that have dropped lower, this remains a solid price.
Reviews consensus: The Celestron SkyMaster 20x80 is a great piece of kit for an uncomplicated glimpse at the stars. Its optics are clear, and its focusing mechanism is smooth. It's durable enough to be thrown in a bag, and waterproof, too, so you can use it on a rainy day. It is, however, a little on the heavy side, so a tripod is recommended. Thankfully, the tripod adapter is included, as is a handy carrying case.
