Update: These binoculars had been knocked down to just $75.49, but sadly this deal has disappeared. The current discounted price of $107.99 is still cheaper than the original $132.95 cost, so it represents fairly good value for money. If you're still planning on purchasing this pair, you might want to nab them from B&H instead. The model is on sale there for the same price ($107.99 (opens in new tab)) but comes with an additional cleaning tool.

For crisp views of anything from the ballpark to lunar craters, a pair of Celestron Outland X binoculars is hard to say no to. The California-based manufacturer has been making optics for 57 years since spinning off from its parent electronics firm, and was the first large scale commercial manufacturer of the Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. Now, it's well known for making some of the best binoculars on the market, along with telescopes and other optics accessories.
This year, there haven't been quite as many discounts from optics companies, thanks to ongoing supply issues. In fact, you'll struggle to find some of the best telescopes in stock anywhere. However, we're just starting to see a few deals emerging with Celestron leading the way, and you'll find plenty of their models listed in our round-up of the best Black Friday binoculars deals.
Celestron's Outland-X series are loaded with features that make them a pleasure to use when outdoors. Light transmission is excellent, and the 50mm objectives mean you'll get clear, bright views of whatever you want to look at. The twist-up eyecups have multiple positions for comfortable viewing , and the eye relief of over three-quarters of an inch means you'll have no problem using them with or without glasses.
The binoculars are available in slightly different variations. You can also bag the 8x42 and then 10x42 model. However, when it comes to stargazing, that 10x50 variation is really the sweet spot, offering the best mix of portability, aperture size and magnification to give you immersive night sky views.
