Overview
  • 1Description

Representing the pinnacle of their optical prowess, the APO HG binoculars from Minox deliver a remarkably accurate and well detailed image. The glass is manufactured by Schott AG - the eyepieces are graced with aspheric elements, while the rest of the optical stack features fluoride glass ED lenses with apochromatic properties. As a result - the APO HG 8x43 Asph. delivers exceptional optical performance. Across the entire field of view - the APO HG offers enhanced contrast and sharpness from the center to its edge.

The technologically advanced APO HGs also feature a cornucopia of multicoating technology. The phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms sport Minobrite coatings for enhanced light transmission. The lenses lay claim to no fewer than 21 layers of with M* multicoating to increase their efficiency, while the external surfaces are treated with MINOTEC multicoating to repel dust, water, and soiling. These optical treatments ensure maximum clarity, light throughput, color-rendition, edge-to-edge sharpness, and the longevity of the optic's critical external surfaces.

The APO HG is built around a rigid, tough, and lightweight magnesium alloy housing that offers a significant reduction in weight, a sleek profile, and an excellent platform for a precision optical system. Argon gas purging and a rubber-armored exterior ensure optimum performance and handling regardless of the climate.

An enhanced center-focus design features Minox's innovative QCF (Quick Close Focus) system. Precise long-distance and rapid close-focusing is easily managed with a single turn of the cross-knurled focusing-knob. A thoughtful range-finding scale on the knob allows viewers to take distance readings at a glance.
