The Celestron Skymaster Pro ED are astro-binoculars used for stargazing. They can be held by hand or mounted on a tripod, and have a smartphone adapter to capture images and video through the eyepiece.
For decades, Celestron has been at the forefront of optics manufacturing, establishing itself as an industry leader in telescopes and binoculars. Leveraging their new engineering package, our task encompassed the development of a design language that would highlight their latest product technologies while retaining its appeal to the established customer demographic. This design language was developed to seamlessly connect the past and the future, introducing innovative features and design components that would elevate the overall user experience.
The final design is a seamless combination of surfaces, textures, grips, and tactile points that converge to craft a comprehensive package exuding comfort, build quality, and durability. Every surface is thoughtfully considered to ensure an optimal user experience, intuitively guiding hand and finger placement. An assertively textured focus wheel, detailed with anodized rings on both sides, facilitates clear visibility and swift adjustments even in the encompassing darkness of the night sky. Accenting each side is a badge, elegantly centered within the sweeping curvature depicting a celestial entity in motion through space. The rubber over-molding was designed as armor to protect the glass and internal mechanics.
