The 8x56 Savannah ED Binocular from Barr & Stroud combines a fully multicoated extra-low dispersion (ED) lens system, large objectives and phase-corrected BaK4 prisms to create a color-faithful high-transmission optical path built for low light performance. This 8x handheld optic features an immersive 61° apparent viewing angle and has the ability to focus within ten feet, making the Savannah ED ready for almost any intermediate to long-range glassing task.

In addition to the image quality rendered by their premium optics, this Savannah ED configuration also has a long 23mm eye relief and twist-up rubber eyecups with multiple click-stop positions. A rapid focus wheel allows the observer to focus from close-up to infinity within a single rotation. Additionally, Barr & Stroud's individual diopter control, located next to the focus wheel, helps the observer calibrate the oculars for their eyesight. Complementing the 8x56 high-transmission optics and handling features is a nitrogen-filled fogproof housing; Savannah ED binoculars are submergible to five feet (for up to three minutes) and are wrapped with slip-resistant rubber armor that absorbs light impact.

    8x56 Savannah ED Binocular is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great binoculars - especially for the price I already owned B&S 8x42 ED for birding so I was expecting great performance. I chose the 8x56 for casual astronomy because I felt the 56 mm objective diameter allowed the brightest image without getting to heavy for holding for extended periods of time. 8 times magnification is the most I want to hand hold these days now that I am a senior. Note: I also own sever telescopes for astronomy, but you don't just pick them up for a casual view from the patio or pack them in the car on a trip. They are sharp, nearly to the edge of the almost 50 degree apparent field. They have great eye relief for an eyeglass wearer like me. And, with fully multicoated optics and phase coatings on the prisms, the light transmission is very high. I compared them to Leica roof prism binos I purchased 40 years ago (no multicoatings or phase coated prism) he B&S image is significantly brighter. The only improvement I can think of would be a greater field of view. But that would come with larger prisms and greater weight and of course greater $$$. Highly recommended!
