  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I’ve owned a pair of Oberwerk Ultra 15×70’s for several years now and am still amazed each and every time I look through them. These binoculars are fantastic for lunar observing and deep penetration of the wonders of the Milky Way! I mount mine on a Bogen 475B with 501HDV head which is really an ultimate binocular setup. They’re very sharp on the moon, revealing tons of craters and mountain ranges. Sweeping the deepsky with this setup is simply fantastic. I had the choice between the 15×70 Ultra’s and the less expesnive standard 20×80’s and have absolutely no regrets going the with slightly smaller but optically better 15×70’s.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have been a backyard astronomer for decades and used to own a pair of Celestron 20X80’s (long before the less expensive Skymasters came along) as well as a pair of 10X50 Celestron Ultima’s, as a companion to my scopes. I spent a great deal of time researching my latest binocular decision and am beyond satisfied with my choice in the Oberwerk Ultra Series15X70’s.

    The level of quality and craftsmanship of these binocs is superb, the views are crisp very close to the edges, and the background is beautifully dark, creating a sharp contrast. I wanted to have the best field of view I could get without wasting the wash-over of additional light from an over-sized exit pupil, and found the perfect combination with the Ultra 15X70’s.

    One of the things that you don’t hear enough about in binocular discussions is that as you get older (I’d like to say I’m a fit 52) your night sky adapted pupil simply doesn’t enlarge the way it did when you were younger. If you select a binocular with an exit pupil much larger than your own, you are simply wasting the Image. (You literally can’t see the full view without constantly shifting your eyes about… No fun!) The 4.6mm exit pupil is perfect for people of my age group, or older. (Otherwise I might have considered purchasing the 10.5X model for the wider field of view.)

    These are hand-holdable for a short time, but you really do need a solid tripod to get the most out of them. After talking with Kevin, the owner of Oberwerk, I purchased the Oberwerk 3000 combo model tripod with the heavy duty L adapter, and couldn’t be happier with the balance of solidness, minimal weight, and convenience to just run outside on a whim and set them up.

    I cannot give a heartier thumbs up for these binocs as well as the combination with this tripod. You won’t be disappointed if you are looking for convenience, quality, and stunning medium-power binocular views. If you’re younger you might consider the 10.5X model, but for us older (and supposedly wiser gents) the 15X just makes more sense.

    Lastly, if this helps you sort through the options, Kevin also told me the the 15X70 Ultras are optically superior to the 20X80 deluxe III’s. That nailed it for me.
