Best Binoculars for Astronomy 2019 – BBR Best Astronomy Binocular Awards

In this video I’m going to reveal to you
the winner of the BBR award for the Best Astronomy Binoculars 2019 and
we’re going to start right now. Hello my name is Jason and welcome to
the 2019 Best Binoculars for hunting Reviews Award winner series. In each episode I’ll be
highlighting one of the category winners and explaining just why i believe they
deserve to be classed as one of the best binoculars of 2019 now into its ninth
year the BB r awards are a great way for me to showcase the very best binoculars
scopes night-vision devices and accessories in a wide range of
categories that I fully hands-on tested and reviewed in the past twelve months
and today we’re going to be taking a look at the Best Binoculars for
Astronomy 2019 designed for astronomy but also a very
capable long-range terrestrial binocular these Celestron Echelon binoculars
feature a powerful 20x magnification as well as these really
large 70 millimeter objective lenses so just like the windows in your house
these large lenses are able to capture and then let in much more light than
smaller lenses can however this is just the start because it takes much more
than just large lenses to deliver bright high-quality views especially in
low-light conditions as what is required here is also a really good optical
system and that is where these celestron Pinnock does really do excel scoring a nine out of ten for optical
components on the bbr scale the celestron epsilon binoculars use very
high-end japanese-made optical glass and coatings to ensure that as much of the
collected light as possible gets right through the entire optical pathway and
onto your eyes with such a high magnification and for use in very low
light situations this is critical and it is where I really notice that these
completely are performed less expensive lower quality alternatives
the quality doesn’t end with the optics indeed the binocular itself is assembled best compact binoculars
by hand in the US where the focus is very much on precision and quality
rather than volume on top of this celestron uses an aluminium chassis on
the edge lot whilst not as lightweight it is certainly more robust and gives us
a much better feeling of quality when compared to the many plastic
polycarbonate alternatives on the market these binoculars are also completely
sealed and filled with nitrogen gas making them both fully waterproof and
fog proof now I know you may be thinking astronomy doesn’t really work in the
rain so what is the point of this well for me it is a strong indicator of a
higher quality instrument and on top of this remember that these seals will also
prevent tiny dust particles from entering the system please remember if
at any time I mentioned a technical term or a feature that you don’t understand
or just if something isn’t clear feel free to fire off your question down in
the comment section down below and I will get back to you or if you prefer
just click through to the bbr website where there are answers to most
frequently asked questions whilst it is just about possible to use these very
powerful and somewhat heavy binoculars by hand for short periods of long-range
terrestrial observation for best results and for Rocksteady shake free views and
something that is especially important for astronomy mounting them onto a
tripod is essential so as you expect these are tripod adaptable and thus all
you have to do is unscrew the dust cap located on the front face of the hinge
where it reveals a standard sized quarter-inch thread this thread will
then except pretty much any standard tripod adapter that you simply screw in
like this once attached you can then fix the
adapter either directly onto your tripod or onto your tripod head depending on
what setup you have often somewhat misleadingly referred to
as having some sort of autofocus these celestron HL and binoculars use an
individual eyepiece focus system which means that once you have calibrated the
instrument by adjusting each of the eyepieces
to match the vision in your particular left and right eyes no further focal
adjustments are ever necessary and everything from their minimum focus
distance right to infinity will remain perfectly sharp and in focus for long
distance and astronomy this always in focus optical system works particularly
well and makes the binoculars much easier to use and is also quicker to
lock onto your subject the nineteen point five millimeters of eye relief is
another impressive feature on the celestron 20 by 7 th line binoculars and
beats many of its competitors this very long eye relief make sure that you are
able to enjoy the full image without any dark rings forming on the edges of the
view where the UA eyeglasses or not another major difference between these
HL and binoculars and lower priced or lesser alternatives is the included hard
carry case which is a massive improvement on the soft case like this
one that I typically see this case is practically bomb-proof
in that not only does it have a rigid construction but like a high quality
camera case it comes with a perfectly molded foam insert to ensure the
binoculars survive even the roughest of handling on top of this this case has a
rubber o-ring seal around the lid and so whilst inside these edge loans are
completely protected against dust and moisture indeed because it is completely
sealed there is also this cap that allows you to equalize the internal
pressure when transporting the binocular between places at different altitudes whilst the next strap and especially the
hard carry case are truly excellent I cannot say the same for the lens covers
which have to be said or very basic to be fair to celestron they do fit well
and work pretty much as intended but it would have just been nicer to have had
them match the very high standards set by the rest of the binocular so what do
you think about these celestron HT LAN binoculars do you want to or do you
actually already own a pair or alternatively do you have another pair
of astronomy binoculars in mind that you thought should have a one no ward I’d
love to get your thoughts and opinions on this so please feel free to comment
down below in future videos in the series I’ll be highlighting some of the
other winners that include the best compact binoculars the best travel and
Safari binoculars as well as the best kids binoculars where I do hope I’ll be
able to convince my eight-year-old daughter Cora to honor us with a guest
appearance so please do subscribe and remember to hit that little Bell button
on the side just so that you’ll be notified as soon as these videos become
available this is something that also really helps both myself and my channel
to continue to grow and I really do appreciate your support on this so thank
you very much for watching and I’ll see you again next time cheers for now you

    two spotting scopes strapped together. sweet!

    I use a set of eschenbach 8x56s for astronomy though. I prefer the wide field of view for binocular astronomy and move to a telescope for closer looks.

    Why would you use binoculars and not a telescope for astronomy?

    Hello, for astronomy, why 20×70 and not 20×80?

    Hello again, what are the differences (light, colors, contrast) between Echelon , Skymaster Pro and Skymaster models ? The cost of Echelon really make the difference in these aspects?

    For stargazing using 20x a tripod is a must…plus, anything 30 degrees above the horizon will be very uncomfortable because you'll have to contort your body to get it under the eye cups…forget about comfortable prolonged views of anything close to the zenith. The extra aperture (weight) and magnification is not worth the discomfort that comes with it. Personally I'd opt for a good handheld 7x or 10x 50mm binocular.

    Hi good video dude…last year i bought a pair of Celestron Skymaster 25×70 which i was blown away by it's great performance with lovely images of the Moon galaxy of stars and planets , but recently this year read alot of good reviews about the Celestron Skymaster 20×80 so now own both giants obviously the 20×80 although losing the 5% magnification equals out better with higher apertures which in the Bin world means better light gathering and better images i am tempted to buy the 25×100 by the same franchise but now there is this pair in this video Would you say these Echelon pairs are superior to all the other giant pairs of Celelstron Skymasters .

    As a complete noob, it was unclear I would see a major difference between the Celestron Echelon 20×70 binoculars (which were over $900) and the binoculars I ended up buying, namely, Celestron 71018 SkyMaster 20 x 80 Binoculars (for less than $130). Thanks for your excellent reviews…I will have a look to see if you reviewed the older lower quality Skymaster binoculars which seemed great value, especially for a beginner.
