The Celestron Nature DX 8x32 Binocular
Celestron Nature DX 8x32 Binoculars offer relatively inexpensive roof-prism binoculars with excellent optical performance for beginning birders with smaller hands. The 8x32 Nature DX is compact, weighs just 18 ounces, and provides good light-gathering capacity. They feature fully multi-coated lenses, phase-corrected BaK-4 glass prisms, a durable shock-proof armor covering, and these binoculars are fully waterproof and fog-proof. The 8x32 Nature DX Binocular has a large 388-foot field of view at 1000 yards and close focuses to just 6½ feet.
For young birders in middle school and high school, also take a look at the larger 8x42 Nature Binoculars for full-size binocular birding experiences. Both models come with a binocular case, neck strap, and lens caps – and both models are on sale now at Optics for Birders. See https://www.optics4birding.com/celestron-nature-dx-8x32-binoculars.html
