The Celestron UpClose G2 10 x 50 Porro Prism Binoculars are ideal for observing wildlife while on vacation, hikes or outdoor adventures.

Inside the UpClose G2 are two Porro prisms, reflective optical prisms that the form of a right-angle triangle with two sides of equal length. Porro prisms make binoculars more compact without compromising focal length or the dispersion of the light rays as they pass through it giving the classic “broad-shoulder” shape of a traditional binocular.

These Porro prisms are constructed of BK-7 optical glass, which provide high reflectivity so that more light passes through the optical path to your eye. UpClose G2 binoculars also contain other optical surfaces treated with special coatings to boost light transmission even more. The result is a brighter view than uncoated binoculars.

Whether you are out on the trail or inside a crowded stadium, you want a binocular that is comfortable to hold and use over long periods, without fear of bumps or drops. UpClose G2 binoculars feature a lightweight and durable armour-protected chassis. Its tough, rigid frame is coated with rubber to stand up to hard use in the field. The UpClose G2 is also water resistant and can repeatedly stand up to unexpected conditions.

Viewing through UpClose G2 binoculars is comfortable for eyeglass wearers and non-eyeglass wearers alike, thanks to its rubber eyecups. Keep the eyecups up for proper positioning of the eyes without glasses. If you are wearing glasses, simply fold them down and out of the way.

UpClose G2 binoculars feature 10x magnification for long distance viewing, a major boost in power for sightseeing, birding, wildlife or whale watching, and more! You will get great views of distant subjects, plus a wide field of view so you can easily follow them as they move. The large 50mm aperture will bring in greater detail and image clarity, helping you observe in low light conditions and at night. No matter how you choose to observe, this binocular is a solid performer.

UpClose G2 binoculars are tripod-adaptable, so you can mount it on any standard photographic tripod for extended viewing or digiscoping (photography through the eyepiece). The tripod adapter is sold separately.  With the detachable objective lens caps you’ll be able to keep your lenses protected at all times. Plus, the large, smooth focus wheel is easy to turn allowing you to focus on subjects at varying distances even with gloves on.

UpClose G2 includes a built-in neck strap for easy carrying. The binocular also includes a protective soft case for storage and transport so you can take it anywhere with confidence.
