The Cypress Series, new from Celestron, is an excellent beginner binocular with high-quality optics at an affordable price. Cypress reverse porro models feature BaK-4 prisms for maximum light transmission and multi-coated optics. You’ll enjoy bright, sharp, high-contrast views through these binoculars. The porro prism design makes Cypress easy to hold, even for those with small hands. The smaller models are an excellent option for children. Cypress is waterproof and the housing is purged with dry nitrogen gas to prevent fogging. The binocular is constructed to withstand harsh treatment, while keeping weight to a minimum. For a sturdy, entry-level binocular, Cypress is the ideal choice.
