APM 11 x 70 Magnesium Series ED APO Binoculars
A good pair of 11 x 70 binoculars can be an amateur astronomer´s best friend. Step outside on your porch and scan the skies for the latest comet, or grab a lawn chair and peruse the Milky Way to discover wispy galaxies and clusters of stars that shine like jeweled boxes in the night. However, don´t put your APM MS 11 x 70 Magnesium ED APO binoculars away once the Sun comes out! These big binoculars, with their over-sized 70 mm optics, are a joy to use for nature observations. Unlike many telescopes, the APM MS 11 x 70 Magnesium ED APO´s are portable and easy to take along on a trip, with or without a tripod. Let´s look at the many features you´ll enjoy if you pick up a pair of APM MS 11 x 70 Magnesium ED APO Binoculars:
Amazing Optics: The heart of a pair of binoculars is the optics. It doesn´t matter how beautiful they are, or how much they cost if the optics don´t give you a clear, sharp, true color image of the world around you. APM Magnesium ED APO binoculars, regardless of their magnification or aperture, use quality ED (FK61) glass and BAK-4 prisms to yield high contrast, tack-sharp images over their entire field of view. Special coatings on all optical surfaces enhance the final result producing true-to-life color.
IPX-7 Water Protection: The International Electro-technical Commission, or IEC, classifies and rates the degree of protection provided against the intrusion of water into a system that would suffer from damage were that to happen. The APM Binoculars have an IPX-7 rating, which means they are capable of withstanding water entry for up to 30 minutes in 1 meter of water. We realize this sort of mishap will most likely not happen, but this superior protection will keep your binoculars safe if they get rained on or splashed.
Rugged, Lightweight Body: The binoculars have a body made from Magnesium, the lightest of the metal elements. Magnesium is also noted for its strength and resistance against corrosion. The binocular body is over-coated with a rubber armor, which further protects and offers a slip-resistant grip without adding much weight.
Good Eye Relief:The APM ED APO 11 x 70 Magnesium Series Binoculars have very comfortable eye relief of 23 mm. The term “eye relief” has to do with where your eye has to be placed to see the full image being produced.
