About this deal

It’s an especially great companion for nature observation and bird watching, with phase-coated BaK-4 prisms and a close focus of just 8. To achieve this optical performance, these binoculars feature antireflection fully multicoated extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass lenses with phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms. Celestron’s award-winning Nature DX 12x50 binoculars are the perfect companion for your next outdoor adventure. That makes them just as ideal for wildlife, particularly since they also have a close focus of just 2m/6.

You'll get a high-end experience whenever you use them, not only because of the solid and expensive-looking build quality but also because they use a special glass.With 12x magnification and 50mm objective lenses, at first glance the Celestron Nature DX ED 12x50 is exactly the right size of binoculars to consider for both safari and stargazing. Unlike traditional telescopes, the RASA design ingeniously places the imaging sensor at the front of the telescope tube, creating an ultra-fast f/2.

Stars are very small to the naked eye, so you will need a pair with high magnification which means either a long instrument or one that uses mirrors to fold the light path into a more condensed size.Omni Capital Retail Finance Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (register number 720279). If you're after a mid-range pair of large binoculars ideal for wildlife viewing, the Celestron Nature DX ED 12x50 fit the bill. Of course, as they get bigger they both cost and weigh a lot more so a tripod will be handy to give your arms a rest. The angle of view is generous and despite the powerful magnification, these binoculars can focus as close as 8. It is particularly evident during low light, dusk and dawn, and when looking at bright objects like the Moon, which can be fringed with yellow and purple.

Celestron has a range of binoculars to suit everyone from the junior nature observer to the dedicated star-gazer. This Celestron award winning Nature DX binocular gets a major upgrade with the addition of ED objective lenses. However, the major upgrade that you're paying extra for here is the extra low dispersion ‘ED' glass, which gets rid of chromatic aberration/colour fringing. Also, I really want to have a full hand-held experience so if anyone thinks that these will be too shakey and maybe I should go for their 10X versions I would also love to know, thanks!Armed with 12x magnification and 50mm objective lenses, the Celestron Nature DX ED 12x50 have a slightly higher magnification than most binoculars designed for all-round use, so they’re best considered if you want close-up views of distant subjects. If you're after a mid-range pair of binoculars that can cope with rough travel, dawn safari drives and late-night stargazing then the Celestron Nature DX ED 12x50's top-class glass will impress.
