The Orion UltraView 8 x 42 Binoculars are ultimate in eyeglass- and sunglass-friendly binoculars. Their extra-long 22mm eye relief allows the full field of view to be seen with eyeglasses on, simply by retracting the twist-lock rubber eyecups. UltraView binoculars are also long on optical quality. Made exclusively for Orion by Japan's largest manufacturer of high-quality optics, UltraViews feature the finest BAK-4 glass prisms and lenses finely ground and polished to exacting specifications.
All lens and prism air-to-glass surfaces are fully multi-coated, providing much higher light transmission than can be achieved with the standard coatings offered on most other binoculars. Colors are pure and images are tack-sharp right out to the edges. The large center focus wheel allows quick focusing with just a fingertip. The UltraView 8 x 42 Wide-Angle Binocular is the ideal size for birding, nature observation and traveling. Delightfully wide 8.2° field of view. Birders also love the exceptionally close focus of 12'. 8x magnification, 7mm exit pupil, extra-long 22mm eye relief.
This binocular's cast alloy metal construction holds up admirably under extensive field use. Black rubber armoring protects the binocular against bumps and scratches and finger grooves provide a sure grip. The UltraView 8 x 42 binocular comes with a rugged soft field case, objective lens caps and a deluxe wide neck strap. The binocular has a threaded socket to accept a tripod adapter.
