Opticron Oasis-C overview

  • 1Description

Opticron's 8x42 Explorer WA Oasis-C Binocular features phase-corrected BaK4 prisms and Oasis-C anti-reflection lens coatings that work together to virtually eliminate chromatic aberration to produce high-contrast images with true color fidelity. Complementing the optical performance is an expansive 393' field of view with a 60° apparent viewing angle that produces an immersive viewing experience. Its long 17mm eye relief and twist-up eyecups make viewing for long periods comfortable with or without eyewear.

Opticron employs a magnesium alloy chassis to reduce weight without sacrificing strength and overall durability. The body is wrapped with soft-touch rubber armoring to give protection from drops and impacts while helping to provide a non-slip grip - especially in cold and wet weather. Designed for durability, housing is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for water and fogproof performance in all types of conditions. Included with the binocular are two tethered objective lens covers and a one-piece ocular rainguard that attaches to the neck strap so you're caps and covers are always within easy reach.
