Celestron SkyMaster Pro 20×80 binocular review

The Celestron SkyMaster Pro 20×80 binoculars are designed to do two things extremely well: gather light in the darkest of viewing locations and reach in to far-away subjects. It does this by using its 80mm objective lenses to drink in all available light, even from that of distant stars and galaxies and it magnifies the view by 20x. All this means the binoculars are large and heavy. Even strong adults won’t want to hold these binoculars up for long so using them all night (or all day) will require a tripod. Despite their heft though, they’re easily some of the best binoculars for stargazing that money can buy.

Key specs

Weight: 86.4 oz (2449g)

Magnification: 20x

Objective lens diameter: 80mm

Angular field of view: 3.2 degrees

Eye relief: 0.61-inch (15.5mm)

Due to their uniqueness, which is more akin to two telescopes strapped together than a traditional pair of binoculars, these may not be the best binoculars for everyone.
