  • Fully multi-coated optics allow the greatest possible amount of light to be transmitted through the optical path
  • Brilliant, true-to-life colors are the result of phase coated BaK-4 prisms
  • Sturdy, twist-up eyecups with multiple stops provide plenty of eye relief for a comfortable viewing experience for those who wear eyeglasses
  • Tripod adaptable to any standard photographic tripod to allow extended viewing sessions or digiscoping

Celestron's already award-winning Nature DX binocular series is now even better with the inclusion of ED objective lenses. This is a noteworthy upgrade that raises the optical performance level of these Nature DX binoculars to that of more expensive models, but for a price that won't break the bank.

The Celestron Nature DX ED is a versatile, general-purpose binocular that is optimally suited for hikes, birdwatching, sporting events, concerts, or nearly any situation where you want to get an up-close view of the action without compromising on brightness or detail. With ED glass to help you identify the most subtle of field markings and a close focus of only 6.5 feet, these binoculars are especially great for observing nature.

ED Objective Lenses

Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass virtually eliminates chromatic aberration, also known as color fringing, a visual defect common in binoculars. The Nature DX ED delivers razor sharp images, even at the edges of the field of view. ED glass is also known for producing images with outstanding, true-to-life color.

Not all ED glass is identical in terms of quality. Compared to binoculars without ED glass, images viewed through these Celestron 10x42 Nature DX binoculars with high quality ED glass are noticeably brighter and sharper. Viewing in low light conditions such as at dawn or dusk makes this discrepancy especially apparent.

Coatings and Prisms

All Nature DX ED binoculars contain fully multi-coated optics. For a binocular to be considered "fully multi-coated", all interior air-to-glass surfaces need to be coated with multiple anti-reflectivity coating layers. This enables the greatest possible amount of light to pass through to the user's eye.

Interior prisms are made of high quality BaK-4 glass with phase coatings applied to allow more light to reach your eye after being reflected off their internal faces.

The combination of fully multi-coated lenses and BaK-4 prisms delivers exceptionally bright views with enhanced detail. These features are given a further boost, especially in low light conditions, thanks to ED glass objective lenses.

The Body

A durable rubber armored, polycarbonate housing protects your Nature DX ED binoculars from damage without weighing you down. Viewing through Nature DX ED binoculars is a comfortable experience for both eyeglass wearers and non-eyeglass wearers, due to sturdy twist-up eyecups. Twist through multiple click stops to find the position that works best for you. What’s more, the binocular is fully waterproof and filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging of lenses. Nature DX ED binoculars are able to stand up to even the toughest outdoor conditions.

Perfect for a Variety of Uses

With 10x magnification, this Nature DX ED binocular model is ideal for viewing remote subjects close-up. Despite this high magnification, close focus is still only 6.5 feet, making these binoculars an excellent choice for observing birds, butterflies, plants, and more.

Ways to Observe

Comfortably carry your Nature DX ED binoculars using the included strap. Tripod adaptable, these binoculars can be mounted to any standard photographic tripod for extended viewing or digiscoping (photography through the eyepiece). Tripod adapter sold separately. A protective padded nylon case is also included for protection during storage and transport.
