Whether you are a nature enthusiast or an enthusiastic concert-goer, this binocular has your mid-range glassing application covered. High density extra-low dispersion glass transmits bright images with enhanced clarity and detail. Multicoated elements and phase-corrected roof prisms render rich contrast and color fidelity throughout the entire focus range. The argon purged and o-ring sealed housing is waterproof and fogproof, and a rubber armored exterior provides maximum weather resistance and light shock absorption. A locking diopter adjustment, detented twist-up eyecups, and optional tripod adapter make the 8x configuration of the Golden Eagle HD a full-featured binocular for mid-range glassing in the field.
High Density (HD) Elements
High Density (HD) extra-low dispersion glass elements provide enhanced image quality compared to standard extra-low dispersion glass. These elements are engineered to minimize chromatic aberration and maximize detail by efficiently transmitting all wavelengths of visible light. This translates into lifelike colors and well-defined edges of in-focus subjects.
Fully Multicoated Optics
These coatings effectively eliminate reflections throughout the optical channel, delivering high contrast and superb clarity.
SeeClear Lens Coating
Eagle Optics coats the objectives and oculars with their proprietary SeeClear polymer coating that prevents water and oil from adhering to lens surfaces. This preserves image quality even when lens surfaces have become wet or dirty.
Argon purged and o-ring sealed housing delivers waterproof and fogproof construction, ensuring that this binocular can withstand driving rain and extreme humidity.
Using an adapter (sold separately), this binocular can be mounted to a standard 1/4" tripod mount.
