Useful for most low-light outdoor activities, especially lunar observations and wide-field astronomy, the Levenhuk 15x56 Vegas Binocular is outfitted with high magnification and oversized objectives to boost its low-light performance. It features BAK4 roof prisms and 8-layer anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, which work together to maximize light transmission through the optical path and ensure bright and clear, high-contrast images with accurate colors even in challenging light conditions, such as at night, or at pre-dawn and dusk. The combination of magnification and objective lens diameter translates to a wide angle of view that, when put together with the comfortable eye relief, makes this binocular extremely easy to use for extended periods. The use of roof prisms help to maintain a slim form factor for the optical tubes, so hand-holding this Vegas model is more comfortable; but if arm fatigue or distracting hand-shake become an issue they can be tripod mounted using an optional adapter.

For convenience, and to make it easier to pack and carry, the chassis is made of a lightweight impact-resistant plastic. This material is also temperature-resistant to limit the expansion and contraction common in metal chassis that can cause the optical components from moving out of alignment over time. The chassis is wrapped in a slip-resistant rubber armor with textured palm-pads to add grip security and stability in cold and wet weather or while wearing gloves. Its optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof and resistant to fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes. Finally, a wide interpupillary adjustment range, a ribbed and textured center focusing wheel, a broad −4/+8 dioptric correction range, and twist-up eyecups enable precise focusing and eye relief for just about any user — regardless of most individual eye prescriptions.

Optical Performance
  • Powerful 15x magnification for making detailed observations of distant objects
  • Over-sized 56mm objective lenses draw in large amounts of light for better viewing in low-light conditions such as at dawn or dusk, or in wide-field astronomical use
  • Compact roof prism system help to keep the optical tubes thin for easier handling, despite the large objective lenses
  • BAK4 prisms deliver a round exit pupil, and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • 8-layer anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics produce neutral and accurate color fidelity and improve contrast and image brightness
  • Wide 60° apparent angle of view helps to offset the appearance of visible hand-shake common when holding high-power optics by hand
  • 210-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge configuration
  • Large textured and slip-resistant focus wheel enables easy use even in cold or wet weather, or while wearing gloves
  • Wide 50-73mm interpupillary distance adjustment range allows people with small or narrow faces to properly see, even children or young adults
  • Broad −4/+8 right-eye dioptric correction range for precise focus adjustment to most user's individual prescription
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod-mountable with optional adapter reduces arm fatigue, and eliminates hand-shake and other vibrations
  • 16mm eye relief reduces eye strain and makes long-duration glassing sessions more comfortable
  • 3.7mm exit pupil
Construction Details
  • Lightweight, and impact and vibration-resistant plastic chassis
  • Chassis is temperature resistant to maintain a comfortable temperature in all weather, while resisting expansion and contraction common in metal chassis - that can cause the optics to move out of alignment over time, preventing the ability to achieve sharp focus
  • Nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof to a depth of 3.3 feet (1m), and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes
  • Rubber armoring provides a slip-resistant grip
  • Raised palm-pads improve grip security
