APM MS 20 x 70 ED APO Magnesium Series Binoculars
A good pair of 20 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 20 x 70 ED APO Magnesium 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 20 x 70´s are portable and easy to take along on a trip, with a tripod. Let´s look at the many features you´ll enjoy if you pick up a pair of APM MS 20 x 70 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 binoculars, regardless of their magnification or aperture, use quality ED glass (FK61) 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 ED APO 20 x 70 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. Its superior protection will keep your binoculars safe, even if they get rained on or splashed.
Rugged, Lightweight Body: APM 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, further protecting the binoculars from damage while offering a slip-resistant grip all without adding much weight. Focus is achieved by adjusting each eyepiece individually so that you can match your unique vision precisely. A tripod adapter port is located on the bridge and is covered by a metal cap. To access the port, simply unscrew the cap and attach the included tripod adapter.
Good Eye Relief: The APM ED APO 20 x 70 Magnesium Series Binoculars have a very comfortable eye relief of 16 mm. The term “eye relief” refers to where your eye will need to be placed to see the full image being produced by the binoculars. The lower the eye relief, the closer your eyes will need to be when positioned against the eyepiece. If you happen to wear eyeglasses and wish to observe with them on, eye relief becomes very important. Since APM Magnesium Binoculars have great eye relief, all you have to do if you want to wear glasses is to fold down the rubber eye cups. For non-eyeglasses wearers, keep the eye cups unfolded.
