Minox 62042 overview

  • 1Description

The 8x56 BL Binocular from Minox combines fully multicoated optics and an argon-filled polycarbonate housing to create a durable yet lightweight optic that is ready for mid-range observations in low light conditions. At the core of the 8x56 BL binocular is a high-transmission optical path that uses multiple layers of Minox's M* anti-reflective lens coating and phase-corrected prisms to transmit bright images that are color faithful and rich with contrast.

Building on the existing handling characteristics of previous BL series binoculars, Minox improved the balance of this latest BL configuration by refining the weight distribution. The closed-bridge design, twist-up rubber eyecups with click stop positions, and a finger-felt infinity focus mark on the focusing wheel make the 8x56 BL comfortable to use and easy to handle. For enhanced grip while wearing gloves and when conditions get wet, this optic is rubber-armored and includes rubber ridges on the focus dial. Complementing the ergonomic features and image quality of the 8x56 BL binocular is an argon-filled housing that is fogproof and even submersible to a depth of 16 ft.
