Celestron Cometron 12 x 70 binoculars

Enjoy a crisp, detailed view of the night sky

The night skies are yours to explore with these powerful Celestron Cometron 12 x 70 binoculars. Their massive 70mm objective lenses, multi-coated optics, and large exit pupil allow them to pull in light to give you spectacular views of comets, moon craters, planets, and more. The binoculars' wide field of view also provides an expansive look at the heavens that lets you quickly locate the exact objects you want to see, and keep them in sight without the need for constant movement and readjustment.

The Cometron's long eye relief and folding rubber eyecups provide added viewing comfort, whether or not you wear eyeglasses. The included adapter lets you easily mount the binoculars to an optional tripod for an extra-steady view of your subjects — ideal for extended stargazing sessions. A water-resistant, rubberized aluminum and polycarbonate housing protects the binoculars in damp viewing conditions. Plus, Celestron includes a wide neck strap and carrying case for greater portability and protection.

    Powerful Binocs

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Very useful binocs. We use them to identify bat entry points into homes. Works very well helping us distinguish openings and just shadows. It is a bulky piece of equipment though.



    Great budget binoculars

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I purchased these for my son. He need some for a bird watching class. Now not high quality professional glasses however for the price they are great for what they are. Comes with a tripod mount which is nice. Carry bag is little more then a pillow case....does nothing for protection. All and all great glasses to use for kids, campers, back decks to watch wide life or any thing else you may need.

    Pros: Price

    Cons: Heavy

    Product Research


    Overview: The Cometron Series 12x70 binocular by Celestron is a powerful binocular with a wide field of view, and large 70mm objective lenses, designed for astronomers and stargazers who enjoy viewing objects in the night sky. The 12x70 model comes with a neck strap, rainguard, objective lens caps, a tripod adapter, and a vinyl carrying case.

    BaK-4 Prisms: The 12x70 binocular includes high quality BaK-4 prisms and fully multi-coated optics for great image detail, and brighter images, even in low light. The large 70mm objective lenses and multi-coated optics dramatically increase light transmission for brighter images with increased contrast and resolution.

    Central Focusing Knob: This Cometron Series 12x70 binocular has a large central focusing knob. In addition, the right eyepiece has a diopter for focusing the binocular to your eyesight.

    Folding Eyecups: The binocular features folding rubber eyecups to accommodate eyeglass and non-eyeglass wearers. The eyecup can be left in the up position for non-eyeglass wearers, or folded down completely for eyeglass wearers. There is a middle fold-down position, which may be more comfortable for some users.

    Water-resistant: The 12x70 model has a rubberized aluminum housing that is durable and water-resistant, so you can use it in damp viewing conditions.

    Tripod Adaptable: The 12x70 binocular has built-in threads that allows the unit to be mounted to a tripod, using the included tripod adapter.
