    These are great binos for the price.
    Better than expected more than hoped for.
    There is something about buying an item that is relatively cheap and it turns out to be a real winner.
    Given the price these are amazing, for what you pay you get great clear views.
    Jupiter's moons were sharp images considering the light polluted sky over Adelaide.
    First time buying from Ozhut awesome service, I will be back !

    My only problem, and not a criticsm of the binoculars themselves, is getting a stable image. I build a small bracket that slots between the mount and the tripod and is fixed to one lense tube with velcro. Perfectly stable. I am staggered at the clarity and number of objects I can see. Much more than I expected.
    I'm very happy with the 15x70 binoculars.
    And even happier with the service level. Rapid delivery, even over the Christmas period, and excelllent follow-up on phone calls to Ozscopes. Great to deal with them.

    Celestron Skymaster 15x70 - Review by

    Nice quick delivery, very well packed.
    The 15x70s had a nice solid feel about them.
    Focused on hill out the back, approx 1.5km, focus was a little akward to carry out at first but easily sorted with practice.
    That night I focused on Jupiter nice bright image, but I could not hold the 15x70s steady enough, Jupiter was doing figure of eights and bobbing about.
    Same story with the stars easy to find but even braced or seated, I could not get a steady image.
    I will have to invest in a good tripod in the near future.

    Awesome pair of binoculars. Best in the market for a beginner in my opinion, worth every dollar and then some.

    I know I'm supposed to be reviewing the binoculars themselves but I also want to say that the service was amazing from Ozhut. Emails were swiftly replied and the delivery was incredibly fast, I remember thinking about the parcel "what could this be? It's way too soon to be the binoculars...". I will definitely recommend this website to friends.

    FAQ

    Q:
    I would like to get this product for both myself and my 7 year old son. I think this is a good starting point. I wanted to know if can place it on a tripod and if there is a way to connect a DSLR?
    A:
    Yes you can place it on a tripod. The Skymaster 15x70 already comes with a tripod adapter so you'll just need a tripod. Unfortunately I don't think there's a way you can connect it to a DSLR. There isn't an adapter in the market that can let you use your DSLR with binoculars... but I think you can use two tripods (one for the binoculars, one for your DSLR) and adjust their heights so that the camera lens looks right through one eyepiece of the binoculars for photography to eliminate shakiness etc. But unfortunately, there's isn't any adapter that lets you photograph through binoculars with your DSLR.
    Q:
    Can you please tell me the cost of the appropriate tripod for these 4 binoculars?
    A:
    The Celestron SkyMaster 15x70 Binoculars would be suitable for almost all of the full-sized tripods in our range (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/accessories/mounts-tripods#dir=asc&order=price). You can go for any of the following. They are all $149.95 each. Velbon DV-6000 Tripod with Fluid Effect Head (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/velbon-dv-6000-tripod-with-fluid-effect-head.html) Long Perng MX3000 Heavy Duty Tripod for Binoculars, Cameras and Spotting Scope (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/multi-purpose-heavy-duty-tripod.html) Optex OPH-2440 Tripod with Two-Way Pan Head (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/optex-oph-2440-tripod-with-two-way-pan-head.html) SAXON HVT10 Tripod for Binoculars, Cameras and Spotting Scopes (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/saxon-hvt10-heavy-duty-tripod-for-binoculars-cameras-and-spotting-scopes.html)
    Q:
