Opticron 30679 overview

  • 1Description

Optimized for glassing in woodlands or in the low light of dawn or dusk, the 8x42 Imagic BGA VHD Binocular from Opticron delivers sharp, clear imagery thanks to its light transmission and color rendition capabilities. This binocular combines a multi-coated VHD optical system with phase-corrected PGK prisms.

The 8x magnification provides detail at distance and a stable, shake-free image, while the light-gathering ability of the large 42mm objective lenses makes them ideal for low-light use. The 58° apparent angle of view makes it easy to find and track subjects and to see a wide slice of a scenic vista, while the 22mm eye relief makes that whole field of view available even if you're wearing glasses.

The Imagic BGA VHD is built for the rigors of the field with a rubber armoring around its waterproof chassis. Its ocular tubes are nitrogen-filled to prevent internal fogging and submersible down to 10'. Each eyepiece features a three-stage retractable eyecup for adjusting to each user's comfort level, with or without eyewear. A Cordura case, a neoprene neck strap, a rainguard for the ocular lenses, and objective lens caps are included.
