FRONTIER ED X 8x42 BINOCULARS FROM HAWKE
Using a superior optical system, designed around ED glass, the Frontier ED X produces stunning colour retention, crisp definition and excellent light transmission, you are sure to be blown away by its performance in the field.
The benefits of the Extra-low Dispersion glass and first class coatings throughout are clear to see. Controlled chromatic abberation eliminates colour fringing allowing all detail to be clearly visible.
All Frontier ED X binoculars pass through a strict quality control inspection to ensure all aspects match design intent. They are optically checked for resolution, light transmission and Strehl Ratio for optical image formation. They are further tested in extreme operational temperature conditions from -15°C to +55°C and storage tempratures -40°C to +70°C. Final checks of waterproofing to IPX7 and fog proofing are tested.
Rated for extreme low and high temperature use, the focus knob offers a smooth precise adjustment and a quick turn ratio making focusing the image effortless.
TWIST-UP EYE CUPS
Replaceable twist-up eye cups with position stops allow you to set correct eye relief depending on personal preference or if eye glasses are being used.
