Good quality lenses
Giant binoculars are now bigger, brighter and better...
At the time of writing this I have just acquired a pair of Celestron 20x80 binoculars at a very reasonable price. I had been observing a comet (C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy) with very good 7x50 binoculars, a 90mm f10 refractor and some other equipment. The comet was a circular blob about 20’ of arc in diameter, somewhat centrally condensed and livid grass green and opal blue (in DSLR images), the same but very pale visually in the refractor, and a grayish version of same in the 7x50 binoculars... Using the Celestron 20x80 binoculars (which had arrived in the mail at 9am that morning – longest day ever!), on a good solid tripod, the comet, now three times larger and much brighter, showed the colours clearly. Even the base of the tiny (purely gas) tail – from this least dusty comet – was just visible to averted vision. The comet being in the Taurus-Aries region, I looked at the Pleiades – they were superb! The field of view neither too large nor too small. So I looked for the usual suspects. The Jewel box in Crux and 47 Tucanae were breathtaking. The relaxed viewing with both eyes wide open and actively looking was great. I cannot recommend these monsters enthusiastically enough! But you need a good tripod. The 20x80’s were , at less than NZD250.00, no more expensive than a good 3” refractor! I have always told students to get a good pair of binoculars and use them to see if astronomy is their thing, then move on to the 3” refractor, or a 6” reflector, etc. to do some useful work. But these binoculars - for a price no higher than good 7x50 binoculars when I last bought them – may be changing the hobby at its very beginning.The student still needs the refractor (say)for the high magnification, but I can't see these binocs being "put aside". No astronomer at any level should be without a pair.
Great for general viewing.
Not perfect but very good for the price, I have them mounted on a tripod so my choices in this price range limited for the mounting set up however they sit out in the weather all day and night in our sala and I can pick out if a fisherman is wearing a T shirt or a collared shirt at about 1000 metres, for birdwatching they are great up to about 150 to 200 metres and as for astronomy, The moon is sharp and clear depending on the night with craters easily visable however people stating they see the rings of other planets are possibly exagerating a little ... for me anything other than the moon is just a fuzzy spot ... if there was a 30x80 with a tripod mount like this one has I would have gone that way.

Though not perfect, this is a good entry level binocular for the money.
I bought this after purchasing a Mead telescope. I dabble in astronomy at the amateur level and heard binoculars were vastly underrated as a tool. So far, the cold and overcast skies have limited their use in my area. The Skymaster is a good product, well suited for gazing upward, although there are even better makes if you can pony up the cash. I particularly like the built on tripod attachment which is quite versatile. I found the optics to be good, but not spectacular. I expected more contrast. You'll notice their downside immediately in the almost 10 lb. weight. Don't even think of buying the 71018 Celestron without a very good tripod. Actually, I'd purchase it first and then decide on the binoculars later. Don't skimp on thisor you'll regret it. My tripod is too short for and I can't use it standing without back pain. I haven't tried it sitting at a table yet. j.s.
I am very happy to acquire this item that is so good in quality and cost.
I bought 10*40 Nikon binocular 2yrs ago. It has very good quality in sharpness and blightness. but I wanted more magnification so bought this SkyMaster 20*80 with the question about the quality of it. but I am very satisfied with the SkyMaster in sharpness and blightness just as in Nikon, also in cost. So I recommend this item.
Great binoculars for the price , it has a good build construction a little front heavy ,but is understandable due to the 80 mm front elements. You can hand hold them but not for long due to the weight ,highly recommend using a tripod . The reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 is because they could’ve done better with the lens covers very cheap and consistently falls off
