Levenhuk 8x32 Monaco ED Binocular

BH #LE8X32MEDB • MFR #72817
Levenhuk 8x32 Monaco ED Binocular
Key Features
  • Extra-Low Dispersion Glass Objectives
  • Compact Roof Prism Light Path
  • Phase Corrected, Dielectric Coated
  • Anti-Reflection Fully Multi-Coated Glass
Walking the fine line between compact and full-sized, the Levenhuk 8x32 Monaco ED Binocular is built to deliver the performance discerning outdoor enthusiasts demand while being compact enough to easily pack and carry all day on the trail or around town. To help offset the relatively small objectives, the Monaco is engineered with extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, and dielectric-coated and phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms that work together to maximize light transmission through the entire light path without color fringing. The results are bright, sharp, and clear high-contrast views with accurate color fidelity and crisp resolution, even in challenging conditions such as at dawn and dusk. To further improve the observational experience, the Monaco ED is designed with a long eye relief and comfortable exit pupil as well as a wide apparent angle of view.

Walking the fine line between compact and full-sized, the Levenhuk 8x32 Monaco ED Binocular is built to deliver the performance discerning outdoor enthusiasts demand while being compact enough to easily pack and carry all day on the trail or around town. To help offset the relatively small objectives, the Monaco is engineered with extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, and dielectric-coated and phase-corrected BAK4 roof prisms that work together to maximize light transmission through the entire light path without color fringing. The results are bright, sharp, and clear high-contrast views with accurate color fidelity and crisp resolution, even in challenging conditions such as at dawn and dusk. To further improve the observational experience, the Monaco ED is designed with a long eye relief and comfortable exit pupil as well as a wide apparent angle of view.

Complementing the optical performance is an impact-resistant plastic body that is wrapped in a textured armor to add grip security and stability in cold or wet weather—even when wearing gloves. The plastic body is also temperature resistant so it won't expand and contract like a metal chassis, which can cause the optical components to move out of alignment over time and prevent you from being able to achieve a sharp focus. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to make them submersible and resistant to fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes. Designed for a life of outdoor use, Levenhuk provides tethered objective lens caps and a one-piece ocular rainguard that attaches to the neck strap so they won't get lost while you're viewing through the binocular.

Optical Performance

  • Moderate 8x power magnifies the view without sacrificing exit pupil and eye relief
  • 32mm objective lenses balance light-gathering ability with portability to produce a well-rounded binocular that can be used from dawn to dusk
  • Compact roof prism light path helps to produce an easy-to-handle form factor without sacrificing performance
  • BAK4 prisms deliver a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lens elements reduce chromatic aberrations for increased contrast and improved color rendition and sharpness without fringing across the entire field of view
  • Dielectric prism coatings boost light throughput above 90% for minimal loss and diffraction to improve contrast and resolution
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings eliminate internal interference to improve color and contrast
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics produce neutral and accurate color fidelity across the entire visible spectrum and improve contrast and image brightness
  • 5-element/3-group eyepiece and 4-element/3-group objective lens configuration improves image quality by reducing lens-edge distortion
  • Wide 63° apparent angle of view helps to reduce the appearance of distracting hand shake while providing an immersive observational experience
  • Spacious 416-foot field of view at 1000 yards

Use and Handling

  • Closed-bridge configuration provides a solid and stable platform for the internal focusing mechanism
  • Large textured center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet conditions, even when wearing gloves
  • 56-74mm interpupillary distance adjustment range allows for easy use by a wide variety of people
  • ±3 right-eye dioptric correction enables tack-sharp focusing even without perfect 20/20 vision
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Long 18mm eye relief reduces eyestrain during long glassing sessions
  • Comfortable 4mm exit pupil keeps the entire scene in view, even in lower light conditions when pupils dilate

Construction Details

  • Durable and temperature-resistant plastic body
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible to 5' (1.5m) for up to 3 minutes, and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes
  • Slip-resistant textured rubber armor provides a sure and stable grip
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter to reduce arm fatigue or reduce vibrations
  • Tethered one-piece eyepiece rainguard and stay-on/flip-down objective lens caps are easy to put on and take off without the risk of losing them
