It provides comfort of use combined with good quality that only a reputable brand like Celestron can make possible. We see here that it is possible to come up with an entry level product that offers higher end features and keep it at a price that’s still easy on the pocket.
We buy binoculars mainly to see a good quality of close up images of our favorite subjects and this product certainly doesn’t frustrate us with that. Beginners to intermediate users will greatly appreciate this model as the right equipment for their next outdoor adventure!
Why should you get a pair of these binoculars?
I can effortlessly think of a number of reasons why this product is a must-buy.
No doubt, its affordability is a top attraction that will make customers, who are still checking out which model to buy, keep it on their list. This model certainly isn’t the only one available at its price, but, you will see how much better it is when you compare it with its competition.
Selling for less than $140 in most online stores, it’s tough to find a product priced that low that didn’t go short on providing advanced features that you’d want to see in quality products. The Celestron Nature Dx is an absolute bargain worth grabbing!
What’s even better about this binocular is that, at its price it offers versatility that is so user-friendly, even amateurs will know how to use it on their first try.
Another thing that would make me choose this product over others is its ease of focus that is not so easy to find in other binoculars. Customers who have previously owned a pairs of binoculars will attest to this fact. It actually baffles me up to now why manufacturers find it so difficult to fix this feature when it is a major component in the use of a binocular.
The Celestron Nature Dx is equipped with a focus knob that smoothly slides back and forth with ease. When you are out in the woods and need to focus quickly on a fast-moving object, this detail is most beneficial.
Are there any outstanding feature for this binocular?
Top in the list of this unit’s outstanding features is its lenses. No doubt that the 71332 shines in this area as it’s equipped with BaK-4 prism lenses. Roof prism lenses are designed in a way that the eye bins are directly aligned with the big lenses which explain why the images viewed have better depth of field, better contrast and resolution and appear like they are in 3D. Since prism lenses also do great in magnifying light source, it would not be a problem to use the product in misty or cloudy conditions. Trust to see crisp, sharp and clear images with these lenses.
Still not impressed? Aside from the roof prism lenses, the Celstron Nature Dx uses fully multicoated optics. The phase coating allows maximum amount of light to get through the lenses at all times for brighter images. Fully multicoated optics complements the function of roof prisms producing the best lenses for binoculars. If a product already gives the best of what we want to use it for, what else do we need to look for?
Two items that are as important in binoculars are its magnification and nominal aperture or objective lens, in this case 8×42. This product magnifies images 8x applied on a 42mm objective lens which is already a good number for hobbyists who like to go for wildlife observation, stargazing or landscape viewing.
What makes this design different from other binoculars?
Binoculars are, most usually, used to view far-away objects in the outdoors. Needless to say, a binocular needs to be ready for tough usage and the Celstron Nature Dx certainly does not disappoint in this aspect.
Made of tough and high quality material, it is dependable and durable that you can pass on to the next generations. The Celstron Nature Dx is perfect for clumsy hands or rigorous activities because there is no worry for damages to the unit when you accidentally drop it on hard surfaces.
One also doesn’t need to stay indoors when the skies are not so clear or on adventures that include possible encounters with the water because they can withstand extreme weather conditions as it is fog proof and waterproof. The Celstron 71332 is purged with nitrogen to prevent fogging in its optics and its housing is fully armored for resistance to water and keep off dust and debris from getting in. If that’s not enough, the lens even come with rubber caps that protect them from occasional splashes or dew that could form during cold nights.
Given that its magnification and lens is just at 8×42, some image blurring is seen especially when magnification is maximized when you want to view finer details.
Adjusting eye pieces is also quite inconvenient and can cause discomfort to users who will use the units for longer periods
There are also drawbacks on minor issues such as the quality of accessories that come with the package. The carry case and neck strap seem to be of lesser quality than that of the actual binocular. But looking at it from another angle, the accessories of this binocular are of better quality than that of others in its line. Besides with its price range, this issue is almost a non-concern as long as the advanced features are present.
Other Additional Accessories That Come With The Binocular
The Dx 8×42 Celstron comes with carry case, neck strap, objective lens covers, rainguard, lens cloth and the manual & warranty information.
Clearly, this model was manufactured to specifically target beginners to intermediate users. Given the advanced features, accessories and warranty, Celestron has achieved what it aimed for – and even more!
How can you go wrong when a product is tough, affordable and easy-to-use? Moreover, its optics deliver for the purpose that you need it for, and even exceeds what I just expected to get for the price I paid for.
Not to say that it is equipped with everything, though, because, for one, if you really want a brilliant quality image from your binoculars, then, I suggest you add more hundreds to your budget to get the pair that you want. But, if you just want a pair that would allow you to enjoy the outdoors and see objects far and near, then you’re getting a great deal.
All that said, the Celestron 71332 Nature Dx 8×42 will satisfy your desire to get up close and personal with nature and make you happy with your purchase.
