Leupold BX-5 overview

  • 1Description

Sporting over-sized objectives, a powerful magnification, extra-low dispersion glass, and the proprietary Xtended Twilight (XT) Lens System, the Leupold 15x56 BX-5 Santiam HD Binocular, in Sitka Gear Optifade Open Country camouflage, delivers bright high-contrast images with true-to-life color and crisp clarity even when observing from long distances. Image quality is enhanced through the use of phase-corrected coatings on the prisms, and lenses made of lead-free high-transmittance calcium fluoride glass, which by their nature, limit reflection and increase color fidelity and contrast. The XT system complements the glass through the use of index-matched lens coatings that are specifically engineered for the calcium-fluoride lenses to raise the already high transmittance across the entire visible spectrum — with special emphasis on the blue and violet wavelengths that are most prevalent in low-light, such as at dawn and dusk and under heavily-canopied forests. Its large 56mm objectives gather generous amounts of light to further boost performance in less-than-ideal conditions.

Designed to stand up to a life lived outdoors, the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to make them water and fogproof, even when moving through extreme temperature variations. The chassis is made from an aluminum alloy to make it lightweight and corrosion-resistant. And to further cut weight, providing users with more area to grip, Leupold employs an open-bridge configuration with a dual-hinge. For long-duration glassing sessions, or to reduce fatigue and visible hand-shake that are common with high-magnifications and large objectives, the Mojave can be mounted on a tripod or other support systems using the included adapter.
