Athlon Optics 115004 overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for discerning contrast and color variations, even in low or challenging light, the Athlon Optics 8x42 Talos Binocular will quickly become your constant companion when you're out birding, hiking, camping, enjoying sporting events, or sightseeing around town.

The Talos is outfitted with anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics that maximize light transmission through the light path and improve contrast and color rendition across the entire visual spectrum. The compact roof prisms are made of BAK4 glass and finished with highly reflective silver and phase-correcting coatings that limit internal interference, light loss, and diffraction. These features work together to produce bright, sharp, and clear high-contrast views with accurate color fidelity and crisp resolution. Its combination of moderate magnification and large objectives is a favorite among both amateur and professional users for its versatility and balanced performance. It brings distant subjects in for closer inspection while maintaining a wide exit pupil, with images remaining bright and sharp even in challenging light—such as at dawn and dusk, or when peering into dense brush or under heavy canopies. To further improve the observational experience, the Talos is designed with a wide 60° apparent angle of view that presents users with a spacious field of view.

Complementing the optical performance are construction details that allow the Talos to withstand the elements. The optical tubes are argon-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging if the weather turns or they take an accidental spill in a stream or puddle. Protecting the optical components is a composite chassis that is lightweight and durable as well as resistant to the expansion and contraction that metal suffers from and which can lead to fuzzy views over time. A slip-resistant armoring provides a sure grip, and raised-ridge palm-pad accents further improve grip strength. Athlon includes objective lens caps and a one-piece ocular rainguard to protect the exterior lens surfaces. To keep the caps and rainguard safe during use, they are tethered to the body and strap, respectively. For those who experience fatigue when holding large optics for long periods, the Talos can be tripod mounted using an optional adapter for easy hands-free use.

Optical Performance
  • 8x power brings subjects in for close inspection while helping to maintain a wide exit pupil and field of view
  • Larger 42mm objective lenses improve light-gathering ability for enhanced low-light performance such as at dawn and dusk or when peering into dense brush
  • Compact roof prism light path ensures the optical tubes remain slim for easier handling without affecting performance
  • BAK4 prism glass delivers a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings eliminate internal interference to improve color and contrast
  • Highly reflective silver prism coatings minimize internal light loss
  • Broadband anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics maximize light transmission and improve contrast and color fidelity across the entire visible spectrum
  • Wide 60° apparent angle of view presents a spacious and immersive observational experience
  • Spacious 394-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed bridge configuration provides a solid platform for the internal focusing system
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather, even while wearing gloves
  • Right-eye dioptric correction allows user to compensate for optical prescription to produce sharper views
  • 56-73mm interpupillary distance adjustment range
  • Twist-up click-stop eyecups for easy use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with an optional adapter for hands-free use to eliminate vibrations and arm fatigue
  • Long 17.2mm eye relief makes viewing easier with reduced eye strain, especially during long glassing sessions
  • Wide 5.25mm exit pupil will completely cover pupils as they open and fully dilate in low light to keep the whole scene in view without vignetting
Construction Details
  • Lightweight and durable composite chassis material
  • Composite material is resistant to the expansion and contraction that metal suffers from and which can lead to the optical components moving out of alignment over time, preventing sharp focus
  • Protective rubber armor with raised ridged palm pads provides a slip-resistant grip
  • Argon-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature and environmental conditions
  • Tethered objective lens caps and one-piece ocular rainguard protect the lens surface without the fear of losing them when not in use
