APM MS 11×70 ED APO Binocular
APM MS 11×70 ED APO Binocular is sure to be an amateur astronomer and nature lover’s best friend. Optimized for terrestrial and astronomical observation, these binoculars can scan the skies for the latest comet and peruse the Milky Way to discover wispy galaxies and clusters of stars that shine like jeweled boxes in the night. These big binoculars, with their over-sized 70mm optics, are a joy to use for nature observations as well. Unlike many telescopes, the 11×70 binoculars are portable and easy to take along on a trip with a tripod for ease of viewing.
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 MS 11×70 ED APO Binocular features 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.
These binoculars carry an IPX-7 rating, which means they are capable of withstanding water entry for up to 30 minutes in 1 meter of water. This superior protection will keep your binoculars safe if they get rained on or splashed. APM ED APO 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 the binoculars and offers a slip-resistant grip 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 beauty cap. To access the port, simply unscrew the cap and attach the included tripod adapter.
APM MS 11×70 ED APO Binoculars have very comfortable eye relief of 23mm. The term “eye relief” has to do with where your eye has to be placed to see the full image being produced. 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. 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.
