Comments about Celestron Cometron 12x70 Binoculars:

This is basically a copy paste of the review I just wrote on the Celestron 15x70's I just wrote, as I just bought 2 pairs of binos. These and the 15x70 (for me and the wife).

These binos are virtually identical to the 15x70's with just a bit less magnifying power. I actually prefer these over the 15x.

Pros : Lightweight, Quality Lenses
Best Uses : Wildlife Viewing, Bird Watching, Atronomy Describe Yourself : Casual/ Recreational Was this a gift? : No

The good
- Very light for their size.
- Images are very sharp, focused!

The not so good.
- The focusing mechanism is cheaply made... be careful with these if you want them to last 20-30 years. But for the price, they get the job done very well.
- The lens covers don't attach very well at all.
- The eye piece cover is pretty much a joke.
- The carry bag is a 10 cent piece of vinyl. But it's better than nothing! :)

The Really bad.
- The tripod mount is a flimsy piece of plastic. Just throw the worthless thing away and spend $20 on a good steel one. Really.

Overall, VERY VERY good value for the money. Just think of the "low" price you pay for the binos themselves, which is a fantastic deal.
All the extras that come with it are free - and are not worth more than - free. Interpret that however you want.

Buy these.

    Comments about Celestron Cometron 12x70 Binoculars:

    I have a pair of SkyMaster 15X70's and saw these last week. I like the lower power in 70mm. Did a little work this last weekend and the Pleiades was a perfect fit. I know ISON is a little dim for these currently, but the bino's will be perfect in October and November.
