Celestron Skymaster DX 8x56 Binoculars

Celestron Skymaster DX 8x56 Binoculars


The Skymaster DX 8x56 is quite special. Our binocular technician loves how wonderfully flat the field of view appears. With most binoculars, stars appear pin-point in the centre of the field only. With this unit, however, stars maintain their pin-point like appearance over a larger degree of the field, making it an excellent astronomical binocular.

This model is formerly known as the Ultima DX.
