You can make some good savings on popular Nikon models, which we’ve listed here. Where we can’t find a big deal or discount on a pair of our favorites, we’ve listed the model against the lowest price we can find online. 

One thing to look out for when searching for the best Nikon binoculars deals is that retailers can sometimes hike the ‘before’ price to make their deals look better. On all of the below deals we’ve compared them to previous prices, so you can rest assured you’re getting good value. 

Nikon Monarch 5 and M5 binoculars

Price: $900 | Objective: 56mm | Magnification: 8x | Field of view: 6.2° | Length: 199mm | Weight: 1140g.

With a roof prism design that’s notable for its large objective lenses, the Monarch 5 binoculars should lend themselves well to stargazing – particularly the 8×56 model. A modest magnification of 8x makes them a good choice for the night sky, and with their additional light-gathering power they should provide bright, high-detail images. The weight of around 1kg certainly isn’t the heaviest we’ve seen, but a tripod mount might still be a good idea. 

Elsewhere, the Monarch 5s have a degree of waterproofing (though we wouldn’t leave them out in the rain) a diopter adjuster on the right eyepiece and a chunky focus adjuster that should be easy enough to reach and turn with a single finger. We like the 8×56 for the wide field of view, but you can also get them in 16x and 20x magnifications. 

Sadly, it’s proving quite tricky to find reliable stock on these Monarch 5s at the moment. Monarchs 5s and M5s with slightly lower specs are more readily available. These pairs tend to offer a lower aperture at x42, but they have got the same extra-low dispersion glass and sleek design.

Price: $5,996.95 | Objective: 50mm | Magnification: 7x | Field of view: 10.7° | Length: 272mm | Weight: 2,420g.

A dedicated pair of astronomy binoculars, and just a little bit expensive, the Nikon WX is everything you could want for a night’s stargazing — though we’d prefer they be lighter.

That’s just not possible when you look at the design. An unusual Abbe-Koenig prism structure, three ED glass elements per tube, and a field-flattener lens system all add up. Luckily, there’s a tripod mount.

The body is made of a magnesium alloy so it’s light but strong, and the combination of 50mm objectives and 7x magnification means images will be bright and contrasty. 

Among the accessories available is a sturdy metal case you’ll surely want to transport binoculars of such quality and expense around in, but for the well-heeled amateur astronomer, these are surely the ultimate viewing experience. Except, of course, for their bigger brothers, the EX 10×50 IF, which retail for $300 more.

Nikon Aculon A211 binoculars

Price: $120 | Objective: 50mm | Magnification: 10x | Field of view: 6.5° | Length: 180mm | Weight: 899

Can you really get 50mm objectives for just over $100? It is possible, and while you shouldn’t expect exotic glass or special prisms (it’s a Porro), you do get multi-coated optics and a tripod mount. 

The Aculons aren’t even that heavy, tipping the scales at just less than a kilo, but being able to attach them to additional support is a big mark in their favor. On the outside, they’re nicely coated in rubber armor, and despite being some of the most ‘traditional’ looking binoculars in the Nikon range, this shape has long proved easy to keep a grip on.

The Aculon line of binoculars from Nikon aren’t necessarily stargazing binoculars but because of their large objectives and moderate magnification, owners will find themselves looking up to the skies. These binoculars also work well in low-light conditions.

Nikon Action EX

Price: $190 | Objective: 50 mm| Magnification: 12x | Field of view: 5.5 degrees |  Length: 196mm| Weight: 1043.3 g

The 50mm aperture on the Nikon Action EX means that you should get plenty of light when you’re using these binoculars. Pack in some multi-coated lenses and high-refractive-index prisms and they’re even better, offering clear, crisp views of stars. When we tested them out, we did notice some slight curvature around the edge of the field of view, but overall we were impressed with these binos when considering the reasonable price.

They feel surprisingly rugged, too, with comfortable rubber grips and a large focus knob. Glasses wearers will be pleased with the eye relief, which is a generous 13mm. They promise to be fairly waterproof too and offer decent fog resistance. But all this comes with a price in the way of weight, as the 12×50 binos are slightly heavier than other models at 2.3lbs. As such, you may want to invest in a tripod to avoid shakiness when using these optics.
