Celestron LandScout 8-24x50mm Zoom Porro Binoculars 72355-CGL are great, all-purpose binoculars at an affordable price that can bring a new level of enjoyment to almost any activity: sporting events, sightseeing, birding and wildlife observation, hiking, and more.
Inside the Celestron LandScout are two pairs of Porro prisms, reflective optical prisms that take the form of a right-angle triangle with two sides of equal length. Porro prisms make binoculars more compact without compromising focal length or the transit of the light rays as they pass through it, giving the classic "broad-shoulder" shape of a traditional binocular. Our Porro prisms are constructed of K9 optical glass, which provide high reflectivity so that more light passes through the optical path to your eye.
LandScout also contains other optical surfaces treated with special coatings to boost light transmission even more. The result is a brighter view than uncoated binoculars.
Whether you are out on the trail or inside a crowded stadium, you want binoculars that are comfortable to hold and use over long periods, without fear of bumps or drops. LandScout features a lightweight and durable armour-protected chassis. Its tough, rigid frame is coated with rubber to stand up to hard use in the field. The LandScout is also water-resistant and can repeatedly stand up to unexpected conditions.
Viewing through LandScout is comfortable for eyeglass wearers and non-eyeglass wearers alike, thanks to its rubber eye cups. Keep the eye cups up for proper positioning of the eyes without glasses. If you are wearing glasses, simply fold them down and out of the way.
Celestron LandScout features 8x-24 zoom magnification, so you can find your subject at low magnification (8x) then zoom in for a close-up view (24x); perfect boost in power for sporting events, sightseeing, birding, wildlife watching, and more. You will get great views of distant subjects, plus a wide field of view, so you can easily follow them as they move. No matter how you choose to observe, this versatile binocular is an excellent all-around performer.
Celestron LandScout 8-24x50mm Zoom Porro Binoculars includes an adjustable neck strap that you can customise to be most comfortable for you. The binoculars also includes a protective soft case for storage and transport, so you can take it anywhere with confidence.
