Added to the mix are precisely ground prisms and lenses made of brightness-enhancing barium crown glass (Bak-4) to ensure clarity and brightness to the very edge of the field of view.Peace of mind and years of pleasure are further guaranteed thanks to a 25-year European warranty.Optical Perfection, Day or NightThis particular zoom model offers 8x to 16x magnification and a 25mm objective lens diameter. As it sounds, up to 16x magnification produces an image that appears as if the user were 16 times closer to their subject, while the objective lens diameter refers to how much light can be gathered to form that image. While for daytime use a lens diameter of 21 to 25mm is ideal.Also worth considering for low light work is the exit pupil. Here that is 3.1 to 1.6 mm, which for 8×25 binoculars, for example, is arrived at via 25 divided by 8 = 3.1 exit pupil in mm, so beyond the 2-3mm which is generally thought of as being suitable for daylight use. Another thing to take into account is the field of view, which here, due to the zoom capability, is 79-51 metres, and is defined as the width of the viewable field at a distance of 1000m from the point of observation. Closest focusing distance is five metres.ersatile and Bright, These Binos Will Place Nature in the Palm of Your HandOffering an 8x to 16x zoom magnification to bring faraway points of interest that much closer plus a 25mm objective lens diameter, the 8-16×25 Zoom PC I Binoculars incorporate multi coated lenses to deliver maximum image brightness, visual impact and image defining contrast.Fast and easy focusing is provided courtesy of a large, centrally placed knob.
