|Description:||SkyCraft keeps in stock the very popular 15x70mm and 20x70mm binoculars. These 70mm objectives gather significant light and are ideal for astronomy and avid nature watchers. Law Enforcement agencies also utilize these binoculars for low light surveillance. The higher 15x and 20x magnifications allow observation of many globular clusters and especially the open clusters which under higher magnification reveal their true natures. Even the ring nebula in Lyra can be seen with it's familiar smokey oval visible from city skies when used with a steady binocular mount. |
These quality binoculars feature full multi-coating of the optics which can often be found on more expensive binoculars costing several times our price. These coatings prevent light loss due to reflection and scattering of light, in order to provide the highest level of light transmission.
Precise focus control ensures that image focus will not drift and the 15x70mm model offers excellent long eye relief (which is handy if you wear glasses) while the 20x70mm provide standard eye relief. Both models of binoculars have handsome rubber-armored metal bodies, all-glass lenses, right ocular diopter adjustment, brass 1/4-20 tripod adapter threading, strap, soft case, and caps.
Please note that higher power binoculars are best used with a sturdy tripod or binocular mount if serious deep sky observing or smaller objects are desired as noted above. SkyCraft has a lo-cost "L" adapter for use with a standard photographic tripod as well as a premium binocular mount specially designed for use with our "Deep Sky Series" 70mm binoculars.
