January 16, 2014 by Sarah
Celestron, the leading maker of telescopes in the world and located in Torrance just outside of Gardena, recently announced its new product lineup for 2014. Most likely the company is turning to a variety of printing services to help with the announcement of these new products.
In 2013, Celestron introduced five series of binoculars and other scopes for the sport optics market and this year has added a new line of large aperture binoculars. This has become the Echelon line with three rugged models with magnifications of 10x, 16x and 20x that feature fully multi-coated optics, 70 mm objective lenses and BaK-4 prisms. The binoculars have an aluminum housing armored with rubber that is needed for sports optics for durability and enhancing ergonomics. For 2014, Celestron has added three new large aperture models to the Nature DX binoculars that have magnifications of 8x, 10x and 12x.
For 2014, Celestron is also expanding its line of astronomical accessories. They have developed two spotting scope eyepieces, one of which is a wide-angle model and the other a long relief model that also feature fully multi-coated optics and waterproof housings.
Another new astronomical accessory is the TrailSeeker tripod which is made of lightweight aluminum and can be used for spotting scopes. It has multiple leg angles, quick release plate and a two-way fluid head so that it can be used in a variety of terrains.
Adding to its line of digital microscopes, Celestron has created the MicroFi which includes Wi-Fi integration so that live streaming video can be fed to up to three tablets or smartphones up to 30 feet in distance.
