The Granite Series are the finest binoculars Celestron has ever offered.
Celestron Granite Series Binoculars are the pinnacle of optical and mechanical design. They stand up well against the much more expensive European and higher end Japanese manufactured binoculars at a fraction of their cost - a real value.
They feature ED glass (low dispersion) in the optical design and they deliver edge-to-edge sharpness with excellent color correction & razor sharp images while virtually eliminating chromatic aberration, field curvature, and distortion.
The Granite series uses a state-of-the-art modern open frame/hinge style which provides an excellent grip and is comfortable to handle (even single handed) with the reduced weight.
The body is made of magnesium alloy which is lighter than aluminum but it is more rugged and tough for handling in any environment.

These are very high quality binoculars! I have not compared to high end European 12x50 binos, but I would think they can hold their own. The METAL twist up eyecups are a nice added touch (they are rubber at the eye opening). The open magnesium frame and ED glass makes for an amazing picture for your eyes.I will probably buy a 10x42 pair in the near future.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
