MINOX BD 15x58 ED BR: light gathering giants for nature observation
It is an essential feature for many nature observers to be able to detect the very finest details even in twilight. With the range of 58 mm binoculars (8x58, 10x58 and 15x58) MINOX offers a generation of powerful binoculars with enhanced light transmission and high magnification.
When using high magnifications, color displacements are frequently encountered and these can only be fully omitted with ED glass containing fluoride. For years now these special types of glass have been used in photo optics and are predominantly applied in telephoto lenses (APO lenses = apochromatic correction). MINOX is applying this type of glass in binoculars of this calibre (10x58 and 15x58). The result is quite outstanding: these binoculars can provide unadulterated rendering of the finest color definitions in the feathers of rare bird species viewed over long distances.
It goes without saying that the new 58 series is fitted with all the features which distinguish the other well established MINOX binoculars; large field of view of up to 6.5 degrees, short close focus range of < 4.9m, robust aluminium body, extendible eyecup and excellent viewing for people wearing glasses. The argon gas filling prevents misting up of the optical system on the inside, even under extreme temperature fluctuations.
All 58mm binoculars are provided with a leather case and a wide neoprene strap. The MINOX BD 15x58 ED BR also comes with a tripod adapter.
