These refreshingly affordable astronomical binoculars will gobble up photons from night-sky objects without eating through your wallet. With big 70mm objective lenses and 15-power magnification, the Orion 15×70 Astro-Binocular is an excellent choice for those looking for bright, high-power views of the night sky. See the moons of Jupiter, craters and mountains of the Moon, and hundreds of deep sky objects from dark skies. These big binoculars are also great for chasing open star clusters, even from less than inky-black urban skies.
Light transmission through the 15×70 Astronomy Binocular and view contrast is optimized by virtue of high quality BAK-4 prisms, fully multi-coated optics, and internal baffling. Eyeglass wearers can enjoy the view through these affordable performers without removing their corrective lenses, thanks to a luxurious 18mm eye relief. Foldable eyeguards provide helpful protection from distracting peripheral light sources, and they conveniently fold down for comfortable use with eyeglasses.
While these 15×70 Astronomy Binoculars are small enough for hand-held scanning of the night sky, they also include a tripod L-adapter for mounted viewing sessions, which is recommended for optimal stargazing performance. These lightweight powerful performers weigh 3.1 lbs.
Of course, these 15x70s provide wonderful views of daytime terrestrial fare as well, including birds, wildlife, and scenery. You’ll be amazed at the crisp, high-power view provided by these affordable binoculars.
