Was messing around in the garage and found my box for my Celestron Ultima 8x56 binoculars. I still use them all the time. There pretty beat up, but they are my main binos I go to. Light weight and are a pleasure to use. Stays in collimation and really haven't had any issues.

Just was excited to find the box and had to tell someone. Thanks.

I think they deserve a little bit of a wipe down.

I have a classic pair of Tasco 7x35s and had the original box and leather case inside it, alas, UTL* as the CHP* says.

Uh...."pretty beat up" doesn't quite describe this pair of abused binoculars.

 

I've seen road kill, hit by several large trucks, in better shape!  lol.gif

 

But what do I know?! If they're "used all the time," they're servin' their purpose, aren't they?!?!  tongue2.gif
