The Celestron Skymaster DX 9×63 Waterproof Binoculars is a top-range option whose inclusion is completely based on merits. Nature lovers will find it appealing by virtue of many of its major attributes, which include its waterproof and fogproof design, and of course, its large 63 mm (2.5 in) objective lens, which will be effective in low-light conditions. As we all know, the larger the objective lens, the more the light it allows in. On top of that, it comes with a magnification power of 9x, which is more powerful than what most of its peers offer.
At 44 ounces, however, this model is not the lightest, so you may like to remember that when making your decision. It makes up for the heavyweight with a fantastic performance, though, which you must remember as well. Apart from being waterproof and fogproof, this device is also shock-resistant, which is due to its rubber covering. The binoculars also come with fully multi-coated optics and BAK-4 prisms, allowing them to deliver high-quality images.
Why did it make our list? For optimum comfort, especially for glass-wearing users, the unit comes with a long eye relief, which we love. You also don’t need to constantly refocus, since the great depth of field that the unit provides already offers an excellent overview. Lastly, we like the fact that it’s tripod-adaptable, making it a perfect fit for nature and wildlife viewing, astronomical observation, or action sports.
What is not ideal about it? What’s not to like about this model? Well, there is always a room for improvement. For instance, it’s somewhat heavier than others, and that could cause some discomfort during long walks. Plus, the included strap and case are of low-quality.
