Swarovski SLC overview

  • 1Description

Engineered and built for the wide-open plains of the American West, Swarovski Optik's 8x56 SLC Binocular is optimized to deliver bright and clear high-contrast views when viewing at extreme distances. Its performance begins with a combination of moderate magnification and large objectives which produce a wide apparent angle of view, long eye relief, and ultra-wide exit pupil. It also ensures views remain bright and crisp in low light or when observing at extreme distances. Its phase-corrected Abbe-Koenig roof prisms and extra-low dispersion fluoride HD glass—plus the proprietary SWAROTOP, SWAROCLEAN, and SWARODUR lens coatings—all work together to deliver the exceptional observational experience that Swarovski is known for.

Complementing the optical performance, Swarovski designed the SLC to withstand a lifetime of use out of doors in the harshest conditions. To help offset the weight of the large objectives, the elongated Abbe-Koenig prisms allow thinner optical tubes versus conventional prisms and evenly distribute the weight to make the binocular center balanced for more comfortable handling. To reduce overall weight, the chassis is made of a lightweight and durable magnesium alloy that is wrapped in a protective slip-resistant rubber armoring. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof to a depth of 13' and resistant to internal fogging in extreme environmental conditions and temperature changes. For long-duration observation sessions, the SLC can be mounted on a tripod using an optional adapter to eliminate arm fatigue and vibrations or to leave both hands free for other activities. Tethered objective lens caps and a one-piece rainguard provide the ability to react quickly when an opportunity presents itself without the fear of losing them on the forest floor or in tall grass.

Optical Performance
  • Moderate 8x power magnifies view while preserving field of view, exit pupil, and eye relief
  • Large 56mm objective lens diameter maximizes light gathering to push the binocular's usage from the pre-dawn hours through to last light; also ensures views remain bright and clear even when observing subjects at extreme distances
  • Compact Abbe-Koenig roof prisms have reduced internal diffraction compared to conventional roof prisms for brighter images and are more compact to produce thinner optical tubes for a more comfortable grip
  • Phase-corrected prism coatings reduce internal interference to maximize light transmission and improve contrast and resolution
  • Extra-low dispersion fluoride HD glass limits chromatic aberrations to produce clearer and sharper views with little or no color fringing
  • Wide 60° apparent angle of view provides an immersive observational experience
  • Spacious 400-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Swarovski Technologies
  • SWAROTOP: Anti-reflection lens coatings that are index matched to the glass reduce light loss to just 0.2%
  • SWAROCLEAN: External lens coatings make it easy to clean off insect repellents, water marks, and other residue without smudges or smears
  • SWARODUR: Protective scratch-resistant lens coating prevents damage from chemical elements such as hand perspiration, condensation, gun oils, and insect repellents
Use and Handling
  • Closed-bridge design offers a solid and steady platform for the internal focusing mechanism
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather or while wearing gloves
  • ±5 right-eye dioptric correction with locking adjustment integrated into focusing wheel
  • Broad 56-76mm interpupillary adjustment range enables easy use by a wide variety of users
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear; replaceable if they are lost or broken
  • Tripod mountable with an optional adapter for hands-free use to eliminate arm fatigue and reduce vibrations
  • Exceptional 23mm eye relief improves viewing comfort and reduces eyestrain during long-duration glassing sessions
  • Ultra-wide 7mm exit pupil will completely cover fully dilated pupils for improved comfort and viewing in low light
Construction Details
  • Prism system evenly distributes the weight through the optical tubes to produce a balanced optic that sits comfortably in your hands
  • Lightweight and durable magnesium-alloy housing
  • Iconic Swarovski green rubberized armoring
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature and environmental changes
  • Waterproof and submersible to 13 ft (4m) to withstand the harshest conditions
  • Tethered one-piece ocular rainguard and objective lens caps come off quickly for fast reaction when needed, without the chance of losing them
  • Broad -13 to 131°F (-25 to 55°C) operating temperature; -22 to 158°F (-30 to 70°C) storage temperature
  • Weight: 43 oz
