Celestron's Granite Binocular reaches a top-notch level of performance with state-of-the-art design that cost a lot less than you normally expect to pay. The ED glass, fully multi-coated lenses, and BaK-4 prisms with dielectric coatings combine to provide you with razor sharp details, excellent color correction, and maximum light transmission for the brightest images. An open-frame design offers comfort and ease of use, especially valuable over long periods of observation or when using with only one hand. The strong, lightweight magnesium body and waterproof and fogproof protection makes the Celestron Granite a great choice for the serious outdoor person.

Suprisingly good, great value, keepers for me! - 12/23/2012

by Osage A. from Memphis, TN

These 12x50 binoculars fit my hands well enough that I can hold them just as steady as my other 10x binoculars. I have 10x Swaro EL SVs that I can compare them to - these are not quite as sharp as the Swaros (probably nothing else is) but they cost only 1/4 as much and are still plenty sharp enough so that I can see more detail at 12x than with the 10x Swaros. The 50mm objectives bring in more light than the 32mm Swaro objectives as you would expect, but the Swaro 32mm are as bright as any other 42mm "non-alpha" binoculars I have tried - the Celestron Granites can see a full magnitude dimmer than the Swaros as theory predicts so Celestron is doing something really right and for much less! I would purchase these again, they are everything a relatively high-power binocular should be and are a great value.

Estos Binoculares Granite 12x50 tienen excelente nitidez y muy buena imagen, son livianos ( 850g ) y facil de llevar, yo los uso para observacion general y me gustan tanto como los Nikon 10X50 Extreme Action All Terrain, pero me quedo con los Granite 12x50.
