Engineered for performance and comfort, the Minox 8x52 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 the relatively low magnification, over-sized objectives, long eye relief, and wide exit pupil, users will be presented with a panoramic and immersive observational experience. The combination of low magnification and large objectives helps to limit the appearance of hand-shake, which can lead to blurry images, and extends the usability from pre-dawn to dusk, and under dense forest canopies.

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 that can cause the optical components to move out of alignment over time, resulting in an inability to achieve a sharp focus. The chassis is wrapped in protective rubber armoring that provides a slip-resistant grip, while its center bridge is open to provide more surface area 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.

Optical Performance
  • 8x magnification
  • 52mm objective lenses
  • Compact roof prism optical path
  • Anomalous partial dispersion LD glass elements reduce chromatic aberration to limit color fringing and off-axis coma for true color fidelity, and increased light transmission for brighter, clearer, high-contrast images
  • Phase correcting prism coatings increase internal prism reflectivity, and improve contrast and resolution
  • Fully multi-coated optics limits light loss while further improving image brightness, color rendition, and contrast
  • 343' field of view at 1000 yards
  • Long 22mm eye relief
  • Wide 6.5mm exit pupil
Use and Handling
  • Open-bride/Dual-hinge configuration provides more gripping surface versus closed-bridge designs
  • Large, knurled center focusing knob
  • ±4 right-eye dioptric correction
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter
Construction Details
  • Bridge/hinge design reduces weight without sacrificing strength
  • Lightweight and durable polycarbonate chassis
  • Temperature resistant chassis material limits expansion and contraction to prevent lens-shift over time that can move the optics out of collimation
  • Nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for water and fogproof performance
  • Submersible to 16' (5 m)
  • Broad operating temperature range from 14 to 122°F (-10 to 50°C)
  • Weight: 33.5 ounces
  • Made in Germany
