Athlon Optics 111001 overview

  • 1Description

Designed as part of their flagship series, the Athlon Optics 10x42 Cronus Binocular is engineered to deliver the outstanding performance and precision required by birders, hunters, and discerning outdoor enthusiasts who need to resolve small details at distance.

To deliver peak performance, it is outfitted with extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, broadband anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, dielectric coated and phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms, and protective exterior lens coatings that work together to maximize light transmission through the entire light path without distortion or color fringing. Added to this impressive list of optical features is a field-flattener lens system that corrects spherical distortion at the edges of the field of view to maintain tack-sharp views wherever the user looks. The results are bright, sharp, and clear high-contrast views with accurate color fidelity and crisp resolution across the entire visual spectrum, even in challenging conditions such as at dawn and dusk. To further improve the observational experience, the Cronus is designed with an exceptional eye relief and comfortable exit pupil, as well as a wide 64° apparent angle of view. This minimizes distracting hand shake common with powerful optics and presents a spacious field of view.

Athlon built the Cronus to make it easy and comfortable to hold and allow it to withstand the harshest 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 magnesium alloy chassis that is strong and durable, yet extremely lightweight. Rubber armoring with textured palm pads provides a sure and secure grip. Athlon includes objective lens caps and a one-piece ocular rainguard to protect the exterior lens surfaces. To keep the caps and rainguard safe when the binocular is in use, they are tethered to the body and strap, respectively. For those who experience fatigue when holding large optics for long periods, the Argos can be tripod mounted using an optional adapter for easy hands-free use.

Optical Performance
  • High 10x magnification enables detailed observations of distant subjects
  • 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
  • Roof prism light path ensures the optical tubes remain slim for easier handling without affecting performance
  • Field-flattener lens system reduces spherical aberrations for crisp edge-to-edge distortion-free views
  • Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lens elements reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations for increased contrast and improved color rendition and sharpness without distortion across the entire field of view
  • 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
  • Dielectric Enhanced Spectral Prism (ESP) coatings boost surface reflectivity to greater than 99% for maximum light transmission through the prism with minimal loss and diffraction
  • Broadband anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics maximize light transmission and improve contrast and color fidelity across the entire visible spectrum
  • Proprietary XPL exterior lens coatings resist scratches and abrasions while allowing oil, dirt, and sap to be cleaned off without leaving smudges or residue
  • Wide 64° apparent angle of view presents an immersive and panoramic observational experience
  • Spacious 338-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge configuration provides a strong and stable platform for the internal focusing mechanism
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather, even while wearing gloves
  • Locking right-eye dioptric correction allows user to set the compensation for optical prescription to produce sharper views and lock it in place to avoid accidental adjustment
  • Broad 56-73mm interpupillary distance adjustment range enables easy use by a wide variety of users
  • 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
  • Extra long 19.3mm eye relief allows for easier viewing with reduced eye strain during extended use
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils as they open and dilate in low light to keep the whole scene in view without vignetting
Construction Details
  • Lightweight and durable magnesium alloy chassis material
  • Protective rubber armor with textured palm pads provides a solid and secure 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

    Athlon Optics 111001 reviews

    10x42 Cronus Binocular is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great binoculars I did a lot of research before I decided to buy these binoculars, and there are a lot of good offerings out there from other companies like Vortex and Vanguard. Since I'm already the happy owner of 2 Athlon riflescopes I felt comfortable going with Athlon again and I'm glad I did. These feel very good in hand, solidly built and of quality materials. The clarity is amazing, and it's edge to edge. I often can't wait to grab them to see things up close. They also have a good close focusing distance. Athlon has a no hassle lifetime warranty if any harm ever comes to them. I'm very happy with my purchase and with B&H for offering them. I've always been happy with B&H's service.
