Minox 62245 overview

  • 1Description

Minox's 8x56 BL HD Binoculars sport a moderate magnification and massive objective lenses that are optimized for low-light performance.

The combination of power and objective size draw in copious amounts of light, while the impressive 7mm exit pupil completely covers pupils when fully dilated such as during the early morning or late evening hours. Complementing these features are low-dispersion glass, phase-corrected prisms, and fully multi-coated optics that further boost light transmission while improving color rendition, resolution, brightness, and contrast. Keeping the magnification to 8x helps to extend the field of view to almost wide angle while minimizing distracting hand shake.

Engineered for ergonomics, the chassis is made of a lightweight polycarbonate material that helps to offset the heavy objectives without sacrificing strength and stability while also resisting the expansion and contraction that metal chassis can suffer from. The optical tubes are argon-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible to a depth of 16 feet, and resistant to internal fogging in extreme conditions. Tethered objective lens covers and a one-piece ocular rainguard allow users to react quickly to changing conditions while offering protection from the elements without the fear of losing them. And as the 44-ounce weight may lead to fatigue during long glassing sessions, the Bl HD is tripod mountable with an optional adapter to eliminate vibrations, handshake, and arm fatigue.

Optical Performance
  • Moderate 8x power magnifies the view without sacrificing exit pupil, eye relief, or field of view
  • Large oversized 56mm objective lenses boost light-gathering capability to be optimized for low-light use, such as at dawn and dusk, or when using under heavy forest canopies
  • Roof prism optical path keeps the optical tubes as slim as possible for a more comfortable feel in the hand
  • Anomalous partial dispersion low-dispersion glass lenses correct for chromatic aberration for accurate neutral color rendition and improved contrast
  • Phase-corrected prism coatings reduce internal interference to improve contrast, clarity, and resolution
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics eliminate glare and improve light transmission, image brightness, sharpness, color and contrast
  • Apparent angle of view approaches wide angle to present an immersive observational experience
  • 380-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Open-bridge/dual-hinge configuration reduces weight without sacrificing strength or stability
  • Large knurled center focus wheel allows for easy adjustments in cold or wet weather, or while wearing gloves
  • ±4 right-eye dioptric correction enables users to compensate for optical prescription for sharper and clearer views
  • Twist-up/click-stop rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter for hands-free use to eliminate hand shake and arm fatigue
  • Ultra-long 20mm eye relief makes long-duration glassing sessions comfortable with reduced eye strain
  • Large 7mm exit pupil is optimized for low-light conditions to completely cover pupils when they are fully dilated to avoid vignetting of the view
Construction Details
  • Bridge design provides more surface area for hands to improve grip security
  • Lightweight and impact-resistant polycarbonate chassis
  • Chassis material is temperature resistant, preventing the expansion and contraction that is common with metal, which can cause the optical components to move out of alignment over time and prevent sharp focus
  • Protective rubber armoring provides a slip-resistant grip
  • Argon-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible to 16' (5m), and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature or environmental conditions
  • Ergonomic design provides a comfortable grip for long-duration glassing
  • Tethered one-piece ocular rainguard and objective lens covers to protect the lenses without the chance of losing them
  • Broad 14 to 122°F (-10 to 50°C) operating temperature
  • Made in Germany
