Our lightweight 20x80mm is probably the best buy in the Oberwerk line, especially since it now includes a $45 rugged hard case from Royal Case of Texas! Giant 80mm objectives have a serious amount of light grasp, yet they weigh just 4 pounds! Fabulous for astronomy when used with a tripod, and light enough to be hand-held for terrestrial usage, such as wildlife observation and surveillance.
Low-reflection broadband multi-coating is used on every air-to-glass surface, including prisms. Light loss due to reflection and scattering is minimized, providing the highest level of light transmission possible. New “slow-focus” provides precise focus control that won’t drift. 18mm of eye relief means you’ll see the entire field of view even when wearing eyeglasses.
This model is somewhat “objective heavy”, therefore we highly recommend our new Adjustable Tripod Adapter, (instead of the Heavy-Duty L Adapter) which allows fore & aft adjustment, to obtain perfect balance on your tripod head.
New for 2018, the prism covers in between the body and the objective tubes are now aluminum, to more rigidly hold the objective tubes in perfect alignment.
All Oberwerk binoculars have rugged rubber-armored aluminum bodies, all-glass lenses, BAK4 prisms, right ocular diopter adjustment, fold-down eyecups, brass 1/4-20 tripod adapter socket, caps, and premium denim strap. Also includes a $45 rugged hard case. A remarkable buy at only $199.95.
