    For the price I paid (Under $100) I rate these 5 stars. I have had mine for over 2 years and not had any issues with the zoom or focusing the binos. I must say they are heavy and unless laying on your back observing straight up they can become taxing on the arms. I purchased a tripod and mounted mine which seems to be the way to go for these are heavy. I have used them at several National Parks to observe the wildlife and natural attractions as well as astronomical observing of the moon and stars and the star packed areas of the milky way. For these uses they have been outstanding for the price, highly recommended.

    The Celestron 71012 SkyMaster 20-100×70 Zoom are OK. Not outstanding or of superior quality. The zoom feature is not as smooth opertaing as the more expensive models but works just fine out of the box. Some folks are complaining of the double vision when you zoom. I think that those folks just don’t know how to adjust them properly. They will require some getting used to as the feild of vision is drastically reduced when you zoom. An 80mm objective lens will give you a better field of vision at max zoom, but hey, the PRICE was right for the budget minded consumer like myself. If you want to step on up to the top of the line Nikon you will pay three 0r four times as much. They are adequate for the average user…they are what they are.
