Levenhuk 71142 overview

  • 1Description

Sporting a moderate magnification and larger objectives, the Levenhuk 8x42 Sherman BASE Binocular is an ideal general-purpose optic for mid- to long-range use, even in challenging lighting conditions.

The large lenses draw in a generous amount of light and, combined with the 8x power, translate to a wide exit pupil that will completely cover most pupils in low-light conditions such as at dawn or dusk and when peering into heavy brush or canopies. Complementing these performance features are anti-reflection fully coated optics, a wide field of view, and a traditional Porro prism optical path that all work together to produce an immersive and comfortable observational experience that is defined by bright and clear high-contrast views with accurate color rendition and a rich depth of field.

For long-duration glassing sessions, to reduce arm fatigue, or to eliminate vibrations, the Sherman BASE can be tripod mounted using an optional adapter. Its optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to a waterproof IPX6 rating and resistant to internal fogging. The chassis is made of a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy and wrapped in a protective slip-resistant rubber armor. Fold-down rubber eyecups mold themselves to the user's eye sockets to block stray peripheral light for brighter views without intrusive side glare, and the binocular's center-focusing wheel is also slip resistant to make precision focusing fast and easy.

From the backyard to the backcountry to the stadium, the Levenhuk 8x42 Sherman BASE binocular gives you the ability to see wide areas in all light conditions and weather.

  • Fold-down rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter to limit arm fatigue and vibrations
