The new top class APO HG 8x43 BR asph. binoculars from Minox impressively represent the latest technologies in binocular design through its pin-sharp optics with natural color rendition. Featuring SCHOTT fluoride ED-glass lens elements these apochromatically-corrected binoculars deliver a brilliant color-fringe-free image. The new type of MINOTEC multi-coating, which is a nanotechnology application, helps to repel dust, water and soiling from the external glass surfaces. The APO HG optical system boasts natural color rendition, high contrast and also minimizes glare. Aspherical lenses inside the eyepieces guarantee consistent sharpness from the center right into the edges.
The APO HG 8x43 BR asph. binoculars also feature all the proven features of the HG line. This includes the M* multi-coating of 21 layers and the silver-bearing Minobright reflection of the phase-corrected roof prisms. The handling of the binoculars has been optimized further with the Quick-Close-Focus (QCF); a quick turn of the focus knob to adjust the APO HG binoculars from close-up to infinity, and the user can make very fast adjustment in the near-focus range and precision focusing at greater distances. The distance scale on the central focusing wheel informs the user on the distance from the subject in view. The body is made from exceptionally light magnesium, and together with the protective rubber armoring, the APO HG 8x43 BR asph. weighs in at an unbeatable 23.3 ounces. The binocular body is watertight down to a depth of five meters and is purged with argon gas (longer lasting than nitrogen purging) to eliminate internal moisture or temperature-change-based fogging.
