About this deal

Not only because of their innate specifications, but because they have both core quality and a compact design that makes them easily portable.

field of view means close-ups that are that tiny bit better than on binoculars with 10x magnification, it has the ability to focus on things just 2m/6.

Some on this site will say you want 15x, but I don't think for starting out since no longer hand held. More than enough light gets into the Celestron Nature DX ED 12x50 for basic astronomical use, but that's also of great value when observing wildlife during dawn and dusk.

Although it's easy enough to use, you do have to take quite a journey from one end of the scale to the other, which makes it slightly long-winded to refocus the binoculars for an object closer to you after studying something in the distance. Celestron''s award-winning Nature DX binocular gets a major upgrade with the addition of ED objective lenses. Celestron’s patented StarSense® Technology makes it easier than ever to locate objects in the night sky, even if you’ve never used a telescope before. Also known as color fringing, this refers to an optical distortion within lenses that fails to accurately focus different wavelengths of light — each representing a different color which causes a slight blur. As well as being ideal for stargazing, you should also consider the Celestron Nature DX ED 12x50 as ripe for everything from wildlife observations (they can focus on animals just 2m/6.Celestron’s high quality ED glass delivers visibly brighter, sharper images compared to non-ED binoculars. It’s also tripod-adaptable, so you can mount it on any standard photographic tripod for extended viewing or digiscoping (photography through the eyepiece).

It’s Celestron’s name for high quality glass that eliminates chromatic aberration (which is responsible for a purplish edge around bright objects), accurate color, more brightness and extra sharpness.

With 12x magnification, this model is an excellent choice for long distance viewing or surveillance. This versatile, all-around binocular is an excellent choice for the trail, the stadium, the arena, or just about anywhere you want a close-up view of the action without sacrificing brightness or detail. The eyecups are attached to the neck strap, which is of decent quality, like the padded case with the Nature DX ED 12x50. A binocular can be considered fully multi-coated when all air-to-glass surfaces are coated with multiple layers of anti-reflectivity coatings so that the maximum amount of light passes through the glass to the eye.

If you're after a mid-range pair of binoculars that can cope with rough travel, dawn safari drives and late-night stargazing then the Celestron Nature DX ED 12x50's top-class glass will impress. Whether you are looking for binoculars with extreme close focus - only two meters - or with high magnification, there is Nature DX model for every purpose. Make sure an adult who is familiar with the correct operating procedures is with your optic at all times, especially when children are present.Jamie has been writing about all aspects of technology for over 14 years, producing content for sites like TechRadar, T3, Forbes, Mashable, MSN, South China Morning Post, and BBC Wildlife, BBC Focus and BBC Sky At Night magazines.
