The 8x56 BL Binocular from Minox combines fully multicoated optics and an argon-filled water and fogproof polycarbonate housing to create a durable optic for intermediate to long-range observations. A high-transmission optical path with multiple layers of Minox's M* anti-reflective lens coating and phase-corrected prisms produce bright and clear images that have true color representation and rich contrast. A 50° apparent viewing angle and 23' minimum focus distance give the BL binocular impressive range for a high-powered optic without sacrificing the wide angle view expected of a premium set of glasses.
For durability, the focus wheel is metal with rubber ribs for easy manipulation, and an 'infinity focus' mark on the wheel provides tactile feedback. The 20.8mm eye relief complements the click-stop twist-up eyecups to make the 8x56 BL easy to use and comfortable to handle. For enhanced grip while wearing gloves and when conditions get wet, this binocular has a rubberized grip for slip-resistant handling.
