About the Celestron Granite 12x50 Binoculars...
The Granite Series are the finest binoculars Celestron has ever offered. Celestron Granite 12x50 Binoculars are the pinnacle of optical and mechanical design. Celestron Binoculars stand up well against the much more expensive European and higher end Japanese manufactured binoculars at a fraction of their cost - a real value.
Celestron Granite 12x50 Binoculars feature ED glass (low dispersion) in the optical design and Celestron Binoculars deliver edge-to-edge sharpness with excellent color correction & razor sharp images while virtually eliminating chromatic aberration, field curvature, and distortion.
The Celestron Granite 12x50 Binoculars use a state-of-the-art modern open frame/hinge style which provides an excellent grip and is comfortable to handle (even single handed) with the reduced weight. The Celestron Binocular body is made of magnesium alloy which is lighter than aluminum but it is more rugged and tough for handling in any environment. Attach the binocular to a Celestron Tripod for extended viewing sessions.
