          Pro ED binoculars are the ideal choice for amateur astronomers or anyone who observes at great distances. The Pro ED uses superior optics, coatings, internal parts, and housing materials. With large objective lenses, BaK-4 prisms, ED glass, and fully multi-coated optics utilizing Celestron��s proprietary XLT coating technology, the?view through a Pro ED sets the standard for astronomy binoculars.

          ED Objective Lenses

          Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass virtually eliminates chromatic aberration, also known as color fringing, a visual phenomenon common in magnified optical systems. Pro ED delivers edge-to-edge sharpness with excellent color correction and razor-sharp images.

          Not all ED glass is created equal. Celestron��s high-quality ED glass delivers brighter, sharper images than non-ED binoculars. The difference is especially apparent in low-light conditions.

          Coatings and Prisms

          All of Pro ED��s lens surfaces are fully multi-coated and feature Celestron��s proprietary XLT optical coating technology.? These powerful coatings, similar to the ones you��ll find on our observatory-grade telescopes, decrease reflectivity for higher optical throughput across a broad range of the visible light spectrum. What��s more, the prisms inside the binocular are made of high-quality BaK-4 glass, further boosting light transmission. Working together, the fully multi-coated lenses and BaK-4 prisms deliver more light from your target to your eye for brighter, more detailed views.

          Objective Lenses

          The 70mm objective lenses offer plenty of light-gathering ability for superior low-light performance. The objective diameter-to-magnification ratio is ideal for scanning the skies, observing the Moon and planets, and exploring all the best deep-sky objects. Pro ED also makes an excellent choice for long-distance land-based viewing��especially at dawn or dusk.

          The Body

          Custom-designed rubber armor and a durable chassis protect your Pro ED binocular from damage without weighing you down. Viewing through Pro ED binoculars is comfortable for eyeglass and non-eyeglass wearers alike, thanks to the retractable eyecups and nearly 16mm of eye relief. Eyeglass wearers can see the entire field of view while looking through the eyepiece with their glasses by twisting the eyecups down. For those who do not wear eyeglasses, the eyecups position the user��s eye behind the eyepieces at the correct distance for optimal viewing.

          Ways to Observe

          The Pro ED binocular is tripod-adaptable. You can use a binocular tripod adapter (not included) to mount it on any standard photographic tripod or monopod for extended viewing or digiscoping (photography through the eyepiece).

          Pro ED��s eyepieces are threaded to accept standard s. Adding the right filter can deliver game-changing views for terrestrial and celestial observing. For terrestrial observation, filters can reduce the brightness of sand, snow, and water. For nighttime viewing, filters can cut glare, minimize eye strain, increase contrast, and even combat the effects of light pollution. Remember, the binocular needs a set of two filters.
