Celestron Granite 8x42 Binoculars

Celestron Granite 8x42 Binoculars

Celestron Granite 8x42 Binoculars

Ref: 71370



The eagerly awaited Granite series have lived up to their promise. We believe these binoculars to be not only the finest Chinese-made roof prism binoculars available, but having equal or superior optical performance to some of the most expensive European and Japanese models in this class, but at only one third of the cost. This is quite a statement to make, but one that has been formed from comparison field testing alongside established high price models. We are confident to offer the Granites as the highest optical performance mid-price roof prism 8X42 and 10X42 binoculars currently available, and models that can seriously embarrass some of the most expensive roof prism brands in popular use.

The Granites feature low dispersion (ED) glass as part of the objective lens design, are fully waterproof, fully multi-coated optics, have phase corrected prisms, an open-hinge design lightweight magnesium body, close focus of less than two meters, attachable rain guard, both captive and removable objective lens caps, plus a strong lanyard, carry case and extra shoulder harness.

Fully Multi-Coatings - provide maximum light transmission with the highest levels of contrast. Provide superb natural color fidelity and vivid color saturation
BaK-4 Prisms with High Reflectivity Coatings - the high grade prisms allow for sharp images and the reflectivity coatings increases the throughput transmission to provide the brightest possible images
Phase Coated Prisms - correct out-of-phase shifts of light rays to ensure maximum contrast
Waterproof and Fogproof - nitrogen purged
Eco-Friendly - lead and arsenic free
Focus Knob, Diopter Ring and Twist-Up Eyecups - made of metal for long life and precision movement
Binocular Harness Strap - takes the strain off of your neck and distributes the weight load of the binoculars to your shoulders and torso. The harness is very comforable and keeps the binoculars handy when carrying them during extended use
Standard Deluxe Binocular Strap
Carrying Case
