This Amazon Prime Day, find unbeatable prices on stargazing binoculars for the space cadet in your life. Among countless other exclusive deals, Amazon is offering a few pairs of binoculars like the Celestron's EclipSmart 10x25 Solar Binoculars for sun observing, as well as other binoculars for night sky viewing, birdwatching or just taking in Earth's outdoor sights. Our top pick, though, are Celestron's solar eclipse binoculars.
Celestron EclipSmart 10x25 Solar Binoculars: If you're one of the millions of Americans who will be watching the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, check out Celestron's EclipSmart 10x25 solar binoculars. The binoculars are on sale at 10:45 a.m. EDT (1445 GMT), and will be marked down from $35 on Amazon.com.
Why it's a good deal: With their built-in solar filters, these binoculars offer a safe (and super-affordable) way to get a closer look at the sun during the solar eclipse. After the eclipse is over, you can still use these to look at sunspots or save them for the next total solar eclipse (which occurs in 2024!).
