Celestron Cavalry 15x70mm

Well they arrived today and in a word, wow.  I just spent 30 minutes outback and they really impressed me.  I know sitting in my chair helped, but still they were not too hard to keep steady.  The view compared to my 10x50mm binos blew me away.  I broke out Struve 747 in Orion without a problem.  I actually could see stars in NGC 1981 and M41 instead of just smudges like I saw in my 10x50s.  All of this with a lot of light from a very bright moon.  I am sold on these.  Thanks to everyone for the help, I really appreciate it. 

Well boys, we got three engines out, we got more holes in us than a horse trader's mule, the radio is gone and we're leaking fuel and if we was flying any lower why we'd need sleigh bells on this thing...

   You just realized the effect of larger diameter optics, and the need for steadiness. This is why we nearly all end up with beefier scopes on heavier mounts.

I agree.  Now I think it is time to start looking into an affordable starter telescope.

Celestron has taken a bold step for 2014 with top-of-the-line binoculars.

Who is going to be bold enough to part with their hard earned cash & give us a review?
