The versatile field of application of this top quality product ranges from mountaineering through astronomy up to nature observation of plants and animals. These advantages are particularly noticed at dawn and in twilight conditions, where it is possible to "capture" even very shy animals at substantial distances. With the large exit pupil of 4.3 mm this outstanding feature is also made possible by the unique twilight factor of 25 which permits rendering of fine contours and details even in inadequate light conditions.
The high magnification provides the viewer with an outstanding image which is rich in detail, making the BD 12 x 52 BR A.L.T. also suitable for observing celestial bodies and constellations. The practical tripod connection permits attachment of the binoculars to a tripod, using the tripod adapter which is available as an accessory.
The use of aspherical lenses (A.L.T. Technology) increases pin-sharp definition, providing higher contrast and detail resolution across the entire image field. Thanks to the well-established M* coating of the lenses for minimizing optical reflection and phase-corrected prisms, the new MINOX glass also boasts high light transmission. These outstanding features are ideal for people wearing glasses, because the built-in eyepieces specially designed for wearers of glasses provide an extremely large field of view which is also experienced in full by people wearing glasses, in combination with the extendible eyecups.

I use my Minox 12 x 52 BR A.L.T BD for hunting. These work very well in low light conditions and are well balanced for one handed glassing. I've owned mine for over a year and have no complaints what so ever.
