Minox ultimate aim was to ensure performance at the highest level when they developed and designed their Minox HG 8.5x52 BR Waterproof Binoculars 62159. The German engineers in Wetzlar, Germany have created High-Grade-Sport optics with the best possible performance in every area that defines a quality binocular.
By using special optical glass from German glass specialists SCHOTT AG, a newly developed optical system of Minox HG 8.5x52 BR Waterproof Binoculars provides a fascinatingly high level of light transmission which is bound to be highly rated for brightness and contrast. With their sleek body design and magnesium housing, the Minox HG 8.5 x52 Waterproof Binoculars 62159 are real lightweights at the top end of the range and along with their beautiful cosmetics and ergonomics Minox 8.5 x52 Binocular ensure the end user will enjoy a satisfying new experience when using Minox Binoculars.

With these exciting features and given quality, the Minox HG 8.5x52 mm Binocular is today?s trailblazer that has all the quality and features potential to become tomorrow?s classic.
Top quality light transmission is an essential mark of quality in binoculars. Minox engineers developed the innovative M*-coating of the lenses which consists of up to 21 different layers on the glass surfaces, adapting the various wavelengths of the visible light. This increases the overall light transmission in the Minox H G Binoculars to an impressive 92 percent, while improving brightness, contrast, detail and colour rendering significantly.
Another benefit of the Minox HG 8.5x 52 BR Water proof Binocular is a completely new optical system with internal anti-reflection and anti-glare coatings to help improve contrast. Minox 8.5 x 52 Water proof Binocular feature aspherical lenses to enhance the contrast and sharpness of the image from centre to edge. To provide a reliable and durable protection against internal corrosion and fogging, the Minox HG 8.5x 52mm BR Waterproof Binoculars are filled with state-of-the-art Argon gas.
Another milestone in the Minox HG 8.5x52 BR Water proof Binoculars is the mirroring of the roof prisms through the MinoBright technology. This silver-based coating in Minox High-Grade Waterproof Binoculars 62159 guarantees an improvement of up to 99.8 percent efficiency of the light reflected at the mirror surface. This is yet another improvement in Minox Binocular towards better light transmission within the system of the Minox High-Grade Binoculars. The high-tech optical glass is ?Made in Germany? by the Mainz based SCHOTT AG, which belongs entirely to Carl-Zeiss-Stifung, which was founded by Ernst Abbe. High technology originating from German glass pioneers used for innovative optical products by the Wetzlar based optic specialists. All of the expertise from Minox, a trusted industry pioneer, is combined in this high quality german binoculars.
Better and more advanced handling of the Minox HG 8.5x52 BR Waterproof Binocular is achieved through the Quick-Close-Focus (QCF), developed and patented by Minox. With just one turn of the focusing wheel the Minox 8.5x52 Binoculars can be adjusted from close-up to infinity. This one turn allows fast focusing close-up, and a more precise focusing for longer distances. With the aid of a scale on the central focusing wheel of the Minox Waterproof Binocular, the distance to the object in focus is indicated to the user. This additional feature makes these Minox Binoculars a reliable distance rangefinder.
Despite all their features the Minox High Grade Binoculars 62159 weigh just 750 grams. This puts Binoculars Minox amongst the very best lightweights at the top end of the range.
The Minox HG 8.5x52 BR Waterproof Binocular sleek body design with its protective rubber armouring was designed and fitted around the natural position of the hand. The Minox 8.5x52 Water proof Binocular weight was reduced considerably by using a magnesium alloy, which is increasingly used in aircraft construction. With its much lower density compared with aluminium and its extreme durability, magnesium is a revolutionary material for modern, tough housings of binoculars.
The Minox HG 8.5x52 BR Water proof Binoculars eyepieces are fitted with twist-up eyecups with four click-stop positions. This gives more freedom for an individual?s own eye-relief settings. The design of the Minox HG 8.5x52 Binocular large metal focusing wheel is both attractive and functional. Equipped with a cross-knurl, like the diopter-adjustment, Minox HG Waterproof Binoculars provide a very good grip.
