Minox 10x52 BL HD Binocular

$1,807.00

Product Details

A nice balance of form and function. Including low dispersion glass elements, fully multi-coated optics, and phase-corrected roof prisms work together to produce bright and clear high-contrast images with true coluor fidelity. When coupled with the relatively low magnification, over-sized objectives, long eye relief, and wide exit pupil, users will be presented with a panoramic and immersive observational experience.

The large objectives and wide apparent angle of view help to limit the appearance of hand-shake that is common with higher magnification optics, and extends the usability from pre-dawn to dusk, and under dense forest canopies.

Complementing the optical performance are design details that will make this a binocular that can be comfortably used for long observation sessions. It starts with a lightweight polycarbonate chassis that is resistant to expansion and contraction caused by extreme temperature changes which can cause the optical components to move out of alignment over time, resulting in an inability to achieve a sharp focus. The chassis is wrapped in a protective rubber armoring that provides a slip-resistant grip, while its centre bridge is open to provide more surface area for a more secure hold - especially in cold and wet conditions. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fog proof, as well as capable of being submerged to depths of 16-feet.

Use and Handling
  • Open-bride/Dual-hinge configuration provides more gripping surface versus closed-bridge designs
  • Large knurled center focusing knob
  • ±4 right-eye dioptric correction
  • Twist-up rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter

Optical Performance

  • 10x magnification
  • 52mm objective lenses
  • Compact roof prism optical path
  • Anomalous partial dispersion LD glass elements reduce chromatic aberration to limit color fringing and off-axis coma for true color fidelity, and increased light transmission for brighter, clearer, high-contrast images
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings increase internal prism reflectivity, and improve contrast and resolution
  • Fully multi-coated optics limits light loss while further improving image brightness, color rendition, and contrast
  • 343' field of view at 1000 yards
  • Wide 65° apparent angle of view
  • Long 18mm eye relief
  • Comfortable 5.2mm exit pupil
