Celestron Granite 9x33mm BinocularsItem#: HN-CELE621
Celestron Granite Series Roof Prism Binoculars are the pinnacle of optical and mechanical design. Granite offers all the features you’d expect from a top-of-the-line binocular, including ED (Extra Low Dispersion) glass. The ED objective lenses and fully multi-coated optics provide excellent sharpness and color correction, while virtually eliminating chromatic aberration. Granite also features BaK-4 prisms with dielectric and phase coating to increase light transmission and overall image quality.
As the name implies, Granite binoculars are made to withstand the test of time. They are constructed from magnesium, which is tougher and lighter than aluminum. Granite also features metal—not plastic—twist-up eyecups.
Joining the beloved Granite series is the 9x33 model. This new model provides an excellent balance between performance and comfort, weighing just 20 ounces. The 9x33 provides a wider field of view compared to 42mm binoculars, making them an excellent choice for travel, sports and outdoor activities.

These are great. I saw a pair at a bird show last spring and I decided to finally buy a pair. Everything expected, and just as good as the demo I tried. These are light weight, I guess because of the magnesium body, and have great optics. I as looking for quality and they have "ED" glass. I noticed when I compared these to my Nikon's that the color was much better. They are noticeably sharper as well. Very pleased!
