A good pair of 16 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 ED APO 16 x 70 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 16 x 70’s are portable and easy to take along on a trip, with or without a tripod.
Amazing Optics: 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. Focus is achieved by adjusting each eyepiece individually so that you can match your unique vision precisely.Special coatings on all optical surfaces enhance the final result producing true-to-life color.
IPX-7 Water Protection: The International Electrotechnical Commision, 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 16 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.
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 16 x 70 Magnesium Series Binoculars have very comfortable eye relief of 20 mm. The term “eye relief” has to do with where your eye has to be placed to see the full image being produced.
