Celestron’s TrailSeeker ED 8x42mm binoculars provide the highest-level outdoor performance—a perfect choice for avid birders, hunters, and outdoor enthusiasts.
ENTREE traveled to Africa with the TrailSeeker ED 8x42mm and we were very impressed: it is a feature-rich binocular with superb optical quality at an economical price. Phase and dielectric coated BaK-4 prisms dramatically increase light transmission through the prism system for unrivaled image quality and views. Compared to other binoculars in its price range ($379.95). TrailSeeker ED 8x42mm offers a better close focus along with a wider field of view.
In this superb model, Celestron uses extra-low-dispersion glass, also known as ED glass, because for them and, for us, clarity of vision and accuracy are important. You’ll get precise image quality with these binocs.
