The Nikon Monarch HG 8x30 Binoculars take the quality of the 42mm models and present them in a smaller, 8 oz. lighter size. The Monarch HG 8x30 binoculars weigh a mere 15.9 ounces while providing wide 435' field of view at 1000 yds. In our tests, they performed better than their nominal 6.6' close focus and had a relatively deep field of focus, aided by field flattener eyepiece lenses. Eye relief is 16.2mm. A locking diopter ring prevents diopter drift. The Extra-low Dispersion (ED) objective lenses do an excellent job of reducing chromatic aberration, and are protected from scratches by Nikon's Armor Lens Coating. All lenses are fully multi-coated for improved light transmission The magnesium alloy body is rubber armored, waterproof and fogproof.
The Monarch HG 30mm optics include ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass for reduced chromatic aberration and high-quality multi-layer coatings on the lens and prism surfaces for improved resolution and light transmission. For protection from scratches, external lens surfaces are covered with a scratch-resistant coating.
Field Flattener Lens System
Nikon's Field Flattener System reduces the curvature of the field of focus so that the extremely wide field of view (8.3° in the 8x30) is sharp all the way to the edge of the image.
Compact & Lightweight
The Monarch HG 8x30 has a magnesium alloy chassis that provides strength, durability, and reduced weight. The chassis is wrapped in rubberized material for a sure grip and impact cushioning. Inside, Monarch HG 30mm binoculars are O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged, making them water- and fogproof to 16,000 feet.
