About this deal
It is modern and classy without being too futuristic and I feel makes the binocular look far more expensive than it actually is which is always a good thing.

It's then possible to attach the small straps on either side of the TrailSeeker 8x42 to a clip on each side of the harness. The Celestron TrailSeeker 8x42 is a good choice for anyone wanting to go stargazing, but they’re particularly well suited to anyone wanting to travel to dark skies. The same rubber-armour coating is available to offer fantastic protection and prevent any water damage.However, as I had not tested a binocular from Celestron in quite a while and because of the extremely generous support that I receive from Racheal and others like her through Patreon, I decided to go one step further and contact Celestron on her behalf to see if I could arrange to have a pair sent out to me to test. This is good to see as this is an area on a binocular that often gets damaged when dropped, but to save costs many instruments will have plastic housings, which are cheaper to make, but nowhere near as impact resistant.

The manufacturer-stated field of view of 426 feet at 1000 yards is one of the best in its class, however, in testing conditions we recorded a measurement of 373 feet. The use of roof prisms generally means a more streamlined design and ultimately a more durable product that’s compact and lightweight.The function of the twist-up mechanism is very good as it lacks any free play, or looseness that I often find. Firstly because you are seeing a "bigger picture" it makes it much easier to quickly locate what you want to observe, which if it is small (like a bird) really helps.
