  • Description

    All around the world, Celestron SkyMaster binoculars have become synonymous with stargazing. With enhanced features like fully multi-coated optics and a waterproof housing, the SkyMaster DX 8x56 builds on that legacy. It's a binocular you can use to enjoy stunning views of the night sky for years and decades to come.

    A great way to get started

    Many new stargazers get their start with astronomical binoculars before stepping up to a telescope. SkyMaster DX 8x56's size makes it comfortable for extended handheld viewing sessions, so it's a great choice for your first optic. Imagine panning across the Milky Way or viewing the dazzling details of a passing comet with a pair of high-quality binoculars. With 8x magnification and a wider field of view than most telescopes, SkyMaster DX binoculars are ideal for viewing larger objects like open star clusters. They even offer enough light gathering ability to view the moons of Jupiter and rings of Saturn! What’s more, astronomy binoculars offer a great way to get yourself acquainted with the night sky and the locations of all these popular celestial objects in relation to one another.

    High-end features for maximum versatility

    In addition to the large 4-element lenses, SkyMaster DX binoculars feature BaK-4 prisms and fully multi-coated optics for maximum light transmission, image brightness, and clarity.

    SkyMaster’s rugged, ergonomic grip makes these binoculars easy to hold and point at targets ranging from the Moon and planets to the Orion Nebula and the Pleiades star cluster.

    Although the name SkyMaster suggests celestial viewing, you’ll be surprised how often you reach for your SkyMaster 8x56 during the day. They’re great for viewing birds and other wildlife or boats on the water.
