Engineered for performance and comfort, this second version of the Minox 8x44 BL HD Binocular strikes a nice balance of form and function. Optically, several technologies, including low dispersion glass elements, fully multi-coated optics, and phase-corrected roof prisms work together to produce bright and clear high-contrast images with true color fidelity. When coupled with its wide angle of view, long eye relief, and wide exit pupil users will be presented with a panoramic and immersive observational experience.
Complementing the optical performance are design details that will make this a binocular that can be comfortably used for long observation sessions. It starts with a lightweight polycarbonate chassis that is resistant to expansion and contraction caused by extreme temperature changes which can cause the optical components to move out of alignment over time, resulting in an inability to achieve a sharp focus. The center bridge is open to provide more surface area to grip for a more secure hold especially in cold and wet conditions. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof, as well as capable of being submerged to depths of 16 feet.
