These extremely robust binoculars are waterproof and filled with nitrogen, which effectively prevents fogging of the lenses, even in un favourable weather conditions. The robust, yet very light construction is made possible thanks to the the modern magnesium housing construction. Magnesium is around 35% lighter than aluminium.
Due to the moderate x 10 magnification and the low weight, these 10x50s are also suited for hands-free use, however there is a tripod connection thread on the center axis. This means that this Astro & Marine Binoculars model can also be mounted securely on a photo tripod, which is included as part of the package. Although this is not absolutely necessary with a magnification of x10, it is highly recommended, especially for long-time astronomical observations, for both comfort and in order to obtain an absolutely steady image.
The precise single eyepiece focusing (SF) makes it possible to focus the binoculars once and then clearly observe all resolvable objects in the night sky, or on the horizon. In addition, this design prevents accidental change of focus. Foldable rubber eyecups and eyepieces with a comfortable eye relief distance (WP) of 20mm also allow those who wear glasses to comfortably use the binoculars for observations and to use the entire field of view.
Thanks to fully multi-coated Bak4 optics, a large 50mm objective lens diameter and the well-corrected eyepieces with 3 lenses in 2 groups, these excellent binoculars produce sharp and clear images. The maximum reduction of stray light is achieved by internal baffles and housing/edge blackening, which results in the best possible optical image and perfect contrast, even in difficult light conditions and especially at night.
