A perfect companion for the outdoor enthusiast

Its hard to beat Celestron's Nature DX 10 x 56 binoculars for value and performance. Take a pair along on your next outdoor adventure for a crisp, up-close view of the world around you. Their rugged waterproof and fogproof polycarbonate housing is ready to handle whatever comes your way. The large, 56mm objective lenses gather light efficiently to give you brighter images in low-light viewing condition, when it's too dim to use smaller optics. These powerful binoculars are excellent for observing distant vistas, but also have an impressive minimum focus distance of only 9.8 feet so you can get a close, detailed look at that pileated woodpecker chiseling away on the maple tree in your front yard.

The Nature DX's fully multi-coated lenses and phase-coated BaK-4 prisms minimize light loss for greater brightness and contrast. Eyeglass wearers can better appreciate the view, too, thanks to the binoculars' long eye relief and twist-up, multi-stop eye cups. Their non-slip, rubberized exterior makes them easy to grip. Celestron's durable, high-quality construction is even backed by a lifetime warranty to ensure long-lasting performance.

    Product Research


    Overview: The Nature DX Series 10x56 binocular by Celestron is designed for many outdoor activities, including hunting, bird watching, or wildlife and nature viewing. It comes with a neck strap, rainguard, objective lens caps, and a padded carrying case.

    BaK-4 Prisms: The 10x56 binocular includes high quality BaK-4 prisms and fully multi-coated optics for great image detail, and brighter images, even in low light. The phase-coated prisms dramatically increase light transmission through the prism system for exceptional image quality and views.

    Waterproof: The 10x56 model has a polycarbonate body with a rubberized coating which keeps water out. The binocular is nitrogen-purged to prevent internal fogging.

    Central Focusing Knob: This Nature DX Series 10x56 binocular has a large central focusing knob. In addition, the right eyepiece has a diopter for focusing the binocular to your eyesight.

    Twist-up Eyecups: The twist-up eyecups can accommodate eyeglass and non-eyeglass wearers. For non-eyeglass wearers, the eyecups can be twisted to the full "up" position, or twisted to the "down" position for use by eyeglass wearers. There is a middle position which may be more comfortable for some users.

    Tripod Adaptable: The 10x56 binocular has built-in threads that allows the unit to be mounted to a tripod, using an optional tripod adapter.
