Zeiss is a top name in the optics industry. They're well-known and widely trusted. But, they're not the only manufacturer of quality optics so if you want to scroll through more deals, check out our other specific guides for Bushnell binoculars deals, Vortex binoculars deals and Nikon binoculars deals.

The only downside to a manufacturer producing premium products for as long as Zeiss has, is that their products tend to cost a premium too. Hopefully, the deals in this guide mean you don't have to break the bank to bag a pair of Zeiss binoculars. The company's origins go back to 1846 in Southern Germany, where they originally made microscopes. We've also included and displayed our favorite models along with their lowest available prices.

Zeiss Victory HT

Our favorites: Zeiss Victory HT 8x54

Excellent quality binoculars with sizable objectives, the Zeiss Victory HT are superb for sky watching.

Specifications

Price: $2599.99
Objective: 54mm
Magnification: 8x
Field of view: 7.41°
Length: 7.6 inches
Weight: 2.28lbs

“Made for the twilight hours” goes the marketing line, and with a light-gobbling objective of 54mm, we can imagine they are. As good for spotting crepuscular wildlife as they are at stargazing, the Victory HT binoculars use Schott high transmission glass for up to 95% light transmission. A multi-layer coating and an Abbe-König prism also contribute to image quality and lightness.

This binocular is sturdy as it's built robustly and the ergonomics are high. However, despite the quality of build, all the magnesium in the world cant stop these binoculars edging around the 1kg mark, which makes them quite heavy so a tripod mount - which is sold separately - wouldn't go amiss here. 

A 10x54 pair is also available.

Zeiss Victory SF

A lightweight pair of binoculars that offer a wide field of view, these are great for views of constellations.

Price: £2099
Objective: 42mm
Magnification: 8x
Field of view: 8.42°
Length: 6.81inches
Weight: 1.72lbs

Impressively light, the Victory SF range are more of a general-purpose set of binoculars than dedicated stargazing ones. This doesn’t stop them being useful, of course, and the 42mm objectives should do a decent job of gathering all that lovely starlight and funneling it to your eyes.

An ultra-flouride lens system, along with Zeiss’ multi-coatings, ensures 92% light transmission, and an innovative glass layout shifts the center of gravity toward the eyepieces, so they rest more easily against your eyes. The Zeiss tripod mount is universal, so it’s possible to take the weight of these with a tripod, but their lightweight yet robust construction means they’ll be less trouble to hold than other pairs.

Also available in 8x32, 10x32, and 10x42 varieties, the Victory SF binoculars are easy to carry and quick to focus, perfect for a day, and night, in the outdoors.

Price: $449.99
Objective: 42mm
Magnification: 8x
Field of view: 6.28°
Length: 5.9 inches
Weight: 1.6lbs

Larger objectives needed for night sky views

Cheaper alternatives from competitors available

These binoculars are lighter and more compact than other Zeiss models as they're the manufacturer's attempt at pocket binoculars. But don't let the size (or lack of) fool you as you still get the usual quality of build, image and robust construction as you've come to expect. 

Inside, you’ll find Schott ED glass with multi-coatings, and a choice of gray or green on the outside. The casing is reinforced with fiberglass and waterproof, while hydrophobic coatings on the lenses mean they’ll shed water too. 

The 8x42 formula is a common general-purpose one, but when your binoculars are this light there should be no problem holding them up to the night sky. A tripod mount is, of course, available. The Terra EDs are also available in 10x42, 8x32, 10x32 and even smaller Pocket 8x25 and 10x25.

Larger and heavier than many, but with enormous 56mm objectives, a pair of these on a tripod would make for an enviable stargazing setup. 

Built around Zeiss’ HD lens system, with multicoatings and waterproofing, you get 90% light transmission and extra-close focusing down to four metres (of little interest to astronomers but a selling point for those looking for a multipurpose pair).

The body is aluminum, the color reproduction impressively neutral, and the focusing wheel is close to the eyepieces, for extras simple adjustment. The Zeiss Conquest binoculars are also available as 10x56, 15x56, 8x42, 10x42, 8x32 and 10x32 pairs.
