Sporting a high magnification, large objectives, extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, and fully multi-coated optical surfaces, the Vixen Optics Foresta II ED 10x42 DCF Binoculars deliver bright and sharp high-contrast images with true-to-life color and crisp clarity in all light conditions—from dawn through dusk.

To improve overall image quality, Vixen utilizes phase-corrected coatings on the prisms and ED glass lenses. The glass and coatings ensure views remain bright and clear and improve color rendition and contrast while limiting distortion and internal interference. The roof prism optical path keeps the form factor compact so the binoculars will be comfortable to carry and use all day on the trail, while an exceptional angle of view helps to reduce the appearance of distracting hand shake that is often associated with powerful optics. All of these features work together to present you with a comfortable and immersive observational experience during long days out in the field.

Designed to withstand the rigors of the trail, the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature variations. The chassis is made from an aluminum alloy to make it lightweight and corrosion resistant without sacrificing strength and stability. To further cut weight while providing you with more area to grip, Vixen employs an open-bridge configuration with a dual hinge. An oversized, knurled center focusing wheel allows for sharp focusing even while wearing gloves. For long-duration glassing sessions, or to reduce fatigue and visible hand shake that are common with high magnifications, the Foresta II ED can be mounted on a tripod or other support system using an optional adapter.

Optical Performance

  • High 10x power allows detailed observations of distant subjects
  • 42mm objectives boost low-light capabilities without adding excessive bulk and weight
  • Compact roof prism light path ensures the optical tubes are thin to fit more comfortably in the hand
  • BAK4 prism glass delivers a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lens elements reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations for increased contrast, improved color rendition, and sharpness without distortion across the entire field of view
  • Phase-corrected prism coatings reduce internal interference to improve contrast, clarity, and resolution
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optical surfaces maximize light transmission to ensure views are bright and clear in all conditions
  • Exceptional 70° apparent angle of view helps to reduce the appearance of distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics, while presenting an immersive observational experience
  • 368-foot field of view at 1000 yards

Use and Handling

  • Open-bridge/dual-hinge configuration reduces weight without sacrificing strength or stability
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold or wet conditions or when wearing gloves
  • Locking right-eye dioptric correction enables tack-sharp images; lift focus wheel to set diopter and push back down to lock it in position
  • Twist-up click-stop rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter for hands-free use to eliminate vibrations and arm fatigue
  • Comfortable 16mm eye relief reduces eyestrain for easier viewing
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils as they open and dilate as light fades to keep the entire scene in view without vignetting
