We've scoped out all the best Leica binocular deals right now and put them in this handy guide. Where deals aren't available we've included our favorite models and displayed them with their best price next to them. Unfortunately, Leica binocular deals can be a little thin on the ground at times, but we keep this page updated year-round so it's always worth checking in to see what discounts are out there.

We're always on the lookout for binoculars deals and Leica is one of the most popular makers of binoculars and it's clear to see why with their quality of design. They make some of the best binoculars out there and while they may not have much in the way of models specifically for astronomical purposes, they do have binoculars that excel in nighttime and low-light conditions. These are just some of the reasons Leica binocular deals are so widely sought after. 

The optics brand started out back in 1869, in Germany and the name Leica is actually an abbreviated version of 'Leitz Camera' which was launched in the 1920s. After starting out as Leitz, the company changed its name back in 1986, and unfortunately, the price for quality optics from a company that's been making them as long as Leica has been is at a premium.  

That means we're always on the lookout for Leica binocular deals and we will update this page when we find them. We do also have brand-specific guides for deals on Nikon, Vortex, Bushnell and Zeiss binoculars.

Binoculars are often a cost-effective alternative to the best telescopes as a good pair will offer stunning night sky views and not burn a hole in your pocket. Leica models may typically cost a little more than the average binocular but there's no reason not to check out the best Leica binocular deals below and see what bargains are available.

Our favorites: Ultravid 8X50 HD-Plus

With bright, wide objectives and a decent magnification, these should be well suited for the night sky

RRP: $2,599 | Objective: 50mm | Magnification: 8 x | Field of view: 6.7° | Length: 7 inches | Weight: 35.3 oz

Waterproof
Schott HT high-transmission glass
Good size objectives
Price

Also available as 10x50 and 12x50, and with a 42mm trio too, these binoculars with their bright 50mm objectives and moderate 8x magnification should give a beautifully sharp view of the night sky.

The shell is a magnesium alloy, with a titanium hinge for extra wear resistance. Joint sealing provides remarkable water resistance - you won’t be shopping for a new pair even if you drop them in 16ft of water - and external lens coatings repel water and dirt.

Inside, there are some exotic fluorite elements and Schott HT high-transmission glass, meaning you get exceptional color reproduction and fidelity. With stray light kept to a minimum, more of it can end up in your eyes, and between this and the 50mm objectives, you get a bright view with plenty of detail. A separate adapter is available for tripod mounting.

Trinovid HD

Our favorites: Trinovid 8X42 HD

Slightly cheaper than the Ultravid HD option, these binoculars boast good image quality and durability to boot.

RRP: $999 | Objective: 42mm | Magnification: 8x | Field of view: 7.1° | Length: 5.5 inches | Weight: 25.75 oz

Durable and water resistant
BaK 4 glass
Fairly compact
Still not cheap

A pair of good all-rounders without the eye-watering price of the Ultravid HDs, these ruggedly constructed binoculars feature true internal focusing - the barrels will not extend or contract as you focus - and excellent optical performance.

The 42mm objectives might not have the sheer light-gathering power of 50mm optics, and in stargazing every photon counts, but being lighter and shorter counts too, in terms of your ability to hold them steady. Leica’s tripod adapter doesn’t rely on a screw fixing into the binoculars’ body, but instead supports both tubes while wrapping a rubber strap around the top, so all its binoculars are compatible. 

Rubbberized and impact resistant, the Trinovid binoculars are also weather-sealed and waterproof. The roof prisms are made from BaK-4 glass, with all the coatings you’d expect, and the same goes for the lenses - multicoatings abound, and despite the lack of any really exotic glass, image quality remains high. The Trinovids are also available from 8x32 up to 10x42.

Noctivid

Our favorites: Noctivid 8X42

Reasonably compact for such high specs, these binos are

RRP: $2749 | Objective: 42mm | Magnification: x8 | Field of view: 7.1° | Length: 5.5 inches | Weight: 30.3oz

Schott HT high-transmission glass
Easy-to-use diopter
Wide field of view
Aimed at bird-watchers, rather than stargazers

Right at the top of Leica’s range, although not the most expensive pair, these Noctivids come in both olive green and black. We’ve chosen the green ones to break up a page full of black binoculars, but they’re all the same on the inside.

Featuring Schott HT high-transmission glass, stray-light baffles, and specially hardened coatings, light transmission and contrast are unsurpassed. The optical pathway has been optimised with weight in mind, so the binoculars are centred on your grip rather than being front- or back-heavy. 

With an additional front hinge for stability, and a broad, smooth focuser that’s easy to operate with a finger, it’s hard to criticise a pair of binoculars built to such high standards. If you can stomach the price, that is. A 10x42 pair is also available.

These binoculars are primarily aimed at hunters, but their specs will impress stargazers too.

RRP: $3,499 | Objective: 56 | Magnification: 8 | Field of view: 6.6° | Length: 7.4 inches | Weight: 42.05oz

Huge objective lenses
Good low light performance
Rugged and durable
Heavy
Expensive

An expensive pair of laser-rangefinding binoculars aimed at hunters - and with an app that can transfer the ballistic profile of your favoured rifle into the binoculars so they can take into account its characteristics - these also have the precise combination of wide objectives and modest magnification that makes for a great stargazing pair.

Ideal customers - those who like to shoot a deer then spend the evening scanning the skies, and who can afford $3,500 binoculars - are likely to be rare, but the Geovids are rugged, waterproof, and tricked out with Bluetooth, temperature and air pressure sensors, and can accurately measure distance out to 3,000 metres, something Orion wishes he could do.

As with all Leica binoculars, they’re beautifully made, but the extra equipment, and those yawning objectives, mean the weight is a little high for long stargazing sessions.
