Scope This Out
This nice tabletop, Celestron® UpClose spotting scope has a 60mm objective and a zoom eyepiece for a whopping 20-60X magnification. Strength-wise somewhere between binoculars and a telescope, this portable beauty is great for bird-watching, target-sighting, moon-gazing, and multiple hiking and nautical applications, including ridge-identifying and land-ho’ing. Has a rubber-coated housing, rubber eye-cup, and fully coated lenses. Comes with a soft case, a flight case with adjustable strap, and a 12” tripod. Limited lifetime warranty through Celestron®.

Astronomical Binoculars
Serious 80mm dia binoculars, for serious gazing. These big boys measure 13" long and weigh 4.6 lbs (they have a 1/4"-20 tripod mount) and have coated optics, a rubberized housing, roll-back eyecups, interpupillary adjustment (say that ten times fast) and focus, and a variable zoom from 15X to 45X. They come with a chamois, neck strap and a padded, zippered black leatherette carrying case with a strap. Not for the opera, unless you really want to see the fat lady's tonsils. Near focus of approx 25 feet. Great viewing, whether you're into wildlife or astronomy. Includes a 2-year manufacturer's warranty.
$104.95 EACH
The Better Binoculars
Paul, the guy with vision around here, calls these the binocs to get if you're stepping up your binocular game. From Celestron®, they're Nature DX Series 8 x 42 and lightweight at about 22 oz with BaK-4 prisms, fully multi-coated optics, twist-up eyecups, 7.4 degree angular field of view (FOV), 6.5 ft near focus, linear FOV of 388 feet at 1000 yards, 17.5mm eye relief, 5.2mm exit pupil for brighter images and phase-coated optics. They're completely waterproof and nitrogen-purged to prevent fogging and are "perfect for birding" per Paul. Measure an easy-to-handle 5.3" x 4.9" x 2" and come with a case, neckstrap and chamois.

Isaac’s Bathroom Mirror?
No, but this is a Meade® Newtonian reflector. An 82mm (3.2”) tabletop telescope with a 300mm (F/3.7) focal length on a 360-degree swivel and tilt mount for ease of pointing anywhere in the sky. Highly portable at 3.8 lbs, and comes with 26mm (11.5X) and 9mm (33X) 1.25” eyepieces, a 2X Barlow lens to increase your magnification, and a simple-to-use red-dot finder scope that helps you locate objects in the sky.
