The 8x32 Sahara Binocular from Barr & Stroud combines a fully multicoated optical path and weather-sealed housing to create an optic well-suited for a wide range of glassing tasks. This 8x optic features a wide 64° apparent viewing angle and an impressive minimum focus distance within four feet. Roof prisms made of BaK4 glass and multilayer anti-reflective lens coating help the Sahara binocular transmit bright and contrast-rich images. A nitrogen-filled fogproof housing complements the optical features; the binocular is submergible to three feet (for up to one minute) and is wrapped with slip-resistant rubber armor that absorbs light impact. Twist-up rubber eyecups with multiple click-stop positions and a rapid focus wheel capable of focusing from close-up to infinity within a single rotation make the Sahara binocular easy to use, comfortable to handle, and well-equipped for almost any close to mid-range observation.
