What a bargain! Oberwerk high-quality light-weight 60mm binoculars, at a 50mm price! That extra 10mm doesn’t sound like very much- but 60mm objectives gather 44% more light than 50mm models (surface area = pi*r2). With that much extra light-gathering power, these are ideal for a low-cost entry into binocular astronomy. They are also excellent for birding, nautical applications, and surveillance.
Not only do you get big 60mm objectives- you get the same highest-quality BAK4 prisms that are found in much more expensive models. These are available in your choice of either 9x or 12x magnification. All air-to-glass surfaces are fully broadband multi-coated to decrease light loss due to scattering and reflections, a feature normally found only on binoculars with much higher price tags. All Oberwerk binoculars have rugged rubber-armored aluminum bodies, all-glass lenses, right ocular diopter adjustment, brass 1/4-20 tripod adapter threading, case, caps, and neck strap.
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. Oh- and we lowered the price- now just $99.95!
