Spot your target at any distance with the Celestron 20x80 SkyMaster Pro, the much-anticipated upgrade to the world's bestselling large aperture binocular, the Celestron SkyMaster. Designed to perform in the dimmest lighting conditions, you can count on SkyMaster Pro for long range glassing, hunting, target shooting, amateur astronomy, and more. Why upgrade the world's bestselling long distance binocular? This new version offers a host of new features, while remaining affordable for any hobbyist.
The 20x80 is a perfect size when you want to see maximum resolution in long distance terrestrial viewing. Although 20x80's can be cumbersome and should be mounted on a tripod, SkyMaster Pro's new poly-carbonate housing makes it more manageable than others in this size range.

Long distance binoculars can easily run into the hundreds of dollars (and beyond!), but SkyMaster Pro gives you all the most important upgrades while keeping cost in check. Of course, you get a fully waterproof, nitrogen purged and rubber armored housing that you can use confidently in rain, snow, mud, or just about any other tough conditions.
What's more, all optical surfaces are fully multi-coated with Celestron's acclaimed XLT optical coatings. These coatings--also used on their monster observatory telescopes--dramatically boost light transmission so you can see maximum detail in your subject. SkyMaster also features BaK-4 prisms for even brighter, high contrast images.
Finally, Celestron has added two sets of folding rubber eyecups: traditional round and winged eyecups to shield your eyes from stray light.
Unique Bonus Features
What sets SkyMaster Pro apart? Celestron has solved one of the most frustrating problems with long distance binoculars--centering your target. Taking cues from spotting scopes, they've added a "RSR" or "Reflex Sight Ready" rail to the top of the binocular. You can attach any standard reflex sight or red dot finder in one step, so locking in on your subject is quick and painless. The RSR rail is part of the SkyMaster Pro's innovative built-in tripod adapter, so you won't have to tote along a separate accessory to attach it to a tripod, either.

In the late 1950s, Tom Johnson, founder of Valor Electronics, built a telescope from scratch to introduce his sons to the wonders of stargazing. What began as a hobby soon grew to be Johnson’s driving passion, and in 1960, he formed an Astro-Optical Division within his company. That department eventually became Celestron.
Prior to Celestron, skilled opticians painstakingly produced high-quality Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes one by one, hand-figuring the glass for hours. Johnson wanted to bring observatory-grade optics to the masses, but achieving his dream required streamlining the manufacturing process. Johnson’s solution was developing ultra-precise match plates, allowing for mass production of the Schmidt corrector. With this groundbreaking new technique, Johnson created Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes of unparalleled quality, and brought them to market at a surprisingly low price. Celestron telescopes were an instant smash success that catapulted the hobby of astronomy to new heights.
In 1970, Johnson unveiled his landmark product: the Celestron 8, with its standout orange tube, high-end optics, and $1,000 price tag. Armed with the “C8,” thousands of amateur astronomers observed celestial objects previously seen only in professional observatories. The C8 cemented Celestron as an industry game-changer and the world’s premier telescope brand.
For more than 50 years, Celestron has continued to lead the market, creating dozens of revolutionary new products including telescopes, sport optics, and microscopes. With more than 80 employees around the world, Celestron remains guided by our founding principles as we commit to ever-increasing global growth. Today, we still produce our flagship product—the 14-inch EdgeHD optical tube—at our headquarters in Torrance, California, using Tom Johnson’s signature method.
