Description

The name Hummingbird reflects many of the qualities of hummingbirds: very small size, highly mobile (they can fly in most any direction at will), and capable of long-distance travel (many migrate between South and North America). The Celestron Hummingbird is a micro ED spotting scope, and like its namesake, the Hummingbird Micro Spotting Scope is as well suited to long-distance travel as it is to the backyard. Ideally suited for travel - the Hummingbird will easily fit into a pocket, shoulder bag, or carry-on luggage. This spotting scope is perfect for traveling birders as a more travel-friendly alternative to a full-size spotting scope. The lowest magnification level can also serve as a substitute for a binocular. The Waterproof / Nitrogen filled construction of the Hummingbird keep it protected against wet weather, humid conditions, and other environmental challenges. The durable armor works to keep the Hummingbird protected against bumps and jolts both during transport and in the field. The Hummingbird is tripod / monopod / window mount adaptable providing a variety of options for viewing. This spotting scope can easily be secured to a stable platform for comfortable long-duration or long-distance viewing.

  • Easily carried in vest or coat pocket, in belt pack, or shoulder bag
  • ED lens optical system provides sharp, clear images with vivid, well-managed color
  • 9-27 x magnification range spans binoculars and spotting scopes
  • inch Birder-friendly inch close focus distance: 10 ft. / 3m close focus satisfies birding field optic requirements
  • Waterproof / Nitrogen filled - Protected against wet weather, humid conditions, and other environmental challenges

Better than I expected

Better than I expected. Love that it's lightweight and waterproof and close-focusing. Field of view is bright and sharp and the view through the eyepiece does not shrink when the scope is zoomed. Zooming does require re-focusing however, but not an issue for me. You can hand-hold it, but it's better mounted on a tripod or monopod. Love it.

Great little scope. It's very handy and easily held in your hands. It an be held so zoom and focus are easily adjusted in your hands. I can use it on the 27 magnification without a tripod. Nice ED glass and very little chromatic aberration.

A very compact spotting scope

The scope is very tiny. When I got it, I can see the scope is well made. According to other user report, it should be a very fast scope (F3.8-4). It is very challenging to make a good fast refracting scope. When it is at 9x-15x, the image is fine and clear. When it is higher than 15x, there is obvious chromatic aberration.Compared with the Nikon ED50 with 13-40 x zoom, hummingbird can barely compare with ED50 at 9-15x. However, above 15x image can not match Nikon due to hummingbird severe CA.

Good little scope

Great view in lower magnifications, a bit large to put in a pocket. I wish they had provided a way to put it on a harness or neck strap. I find it a bit unstable to handhold. I did buy a Manfroto desk top tripod and can handhold it now. I have several full sized spotting scopes and find the Hummingbird to almost equal but a lot smaller and easier to take along when birding. Good job Celestron.

Celestron Hummingbird 9-27x56mm ED Micro lens

Nice size; small and light weight. Tried it out outside and the viewing is clear. Also tried it through the window and still had a clear image to see detail. Later at the end of the day, I tried it in the failing light. It surprised me how bright the view was, even better than with the naked eye. The light gathering ability did surprise me. This glass will be very useful in low-light conditions. Also like the ability to change out eye-pieces. I have a Celestron spotting scope with the same size eye-piece so will try a switch to see how it works. The barrel grips to focus and zoom are large and make changes easy.Would have liked a strap connection. Since I carry a camera also, having a strap would have made it quicker to change from one to the other. Still will be handier than a pair of binoculars with the extra viewing range and no added weight over the binos.

A pleasant surprise !

This is my first spotting scope with ED glass, the images are bright and clear, to my surprise, this scope also accepts 1 1/4 inch eye pieces ( very easy to switch out ) .The zoom eyepiece that it comes with is very nice . I'm also using eyepieces that are made by Explore Scientific, the 14mm gives me around ( 15 x ) and the 6.7 mm gives me around ( 30 x ) comparable to the quality of Televue eye pieces in my opinion, less the cost . My main use for this scope is for looking at birds and other wild life . If you are looking for a high quality spotting scope , but you don't want to spend a lot , just get this one, you'll be happy that you did , I am .

This small scope is a good buy. I have a larger Bushnell Legend Ultra

This small scope is a good buy. I have a larger Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 20-60 x 80 scope and when I compare it with this scope I do notice that things look a little better on the Bushnell, but this scope by no means is a slouch. I once noticed some fairly severe chromatic aberration while watching some Mourning Doves at a sizable distance (cranked the zoom up) in a tree at dusk with the sky in the background, but that was a rare case, most of the time any chromatic aberration is only present as a yellow color on the very edge of the image or faintly sometimes outside the center (these observations though are reduced or are gone when you observe things closer or in better lighting or another situation, that is, not at dusk with a sky in the background, I watched some sparrows at a somewhat close distance and the image is superb). This scope is better than my Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 10 x 42mm Binoculars (which are rated high by others for quality) while being the same weight and more zoom. This is like a hybrid between a scope and a binocular, the portability of a binocular with the zoom of a scope (albeit not to 60 x zoom). I use this scope with an Amazon Basics 50 Inch Tripod, the weight is soo light it's amazing. The weight of my previous scope setup was definitely an annoyance, this scope is very light. All-in-all a very small scope that packs a punch, quality is good and is perfect for light and easy birding.

I found this to be a nice scope, easily portable

I found this to be a nice scope, easily portable. It has good clarity. I did find that at the highest magnification the focusing range is extremely narrow. Also, as I have seen in other reviews the carry case fits very tightly and is difficult/near impossible to completely zip closed. The case needs to be slightly larger.

Love the Hummingbird

I got to try this from a stranger who owned it. I immediately was blown away and bought one. This thing is tiny and yet very powerful with amazing optical quality. Its at its best at the lower end of magnification - I find that between 9x and about 15x that the image is stunning. As you push to the higher magnifications it becomes difficult to hold steady enough. But its nice to have the option for the crazy high magnification of 27x.I am glad I opted for the 56mm as it physically is only slightly larger. Overall, I am very happy with this scope. It has become my handy side-kick.
