Here's our handy guide to Leica binocular deals you can get right now and the best discounts on the market. Even where there aren't any Leica binoculars deals available, we've included the lowest available price next to our favorite models. 

Sometimes Leica binocular deals can be a little thin on the ground sometimes but, because of the quality of their binoculars, their discounts are always worth checking out. In fact, they're responsible for some of the best binoculars on the market and you can also check out our guide for binoculars deals too, if that's what you're in the market for.  

While Leica have some great binoculars for night time viewing and some that excel in low-light conditions, we do have other brand specific guides. Be sure to check out our round-ups for deals on Nikon, Vortex, Bushnell and Zeiss binoculars. If you're looking for views of the night sky, binoculars may not be as powerful as the best telescopes but can offer the stargazing experience you want without you having to break the bank. 

Leica started out back in 1869 and the name is actually short for 'Leitz Camera' which came about in the 1920s. The company reverted its name back to Leica in 1986 and unfortunately, when a company has been making premium optics for as long as they have, you normally have to pay for that premium. However, if you want to check out the best Leica binoculars deals, all you have to do is check out our round-up below.

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

The binoculars offer 8x magnification and a 50mm objectives that give crystal clear views of the night sky. You can also get these as a 10x50 and 12x50 with a 42mm trio too.

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.
