Opticron Countryman BGA HD+ Roof Prism Binoculars

About this product

* Free shipping for this item *

The Opticron Countryman BGA HD series binoculars are designed and built to deliver exceptional viewing performance in a lightweight rugged body. An ideal choice for the wildlife enthusiast searching for superior cross-field definition and light transmission coupled with great handling, the fourth generation Countryman BGA offers a mixture of improved field of view, clarity and resolution over previous models.

These binoculars feature Oasis prism coating, which is the name given to a 64-layer coating process applied to the reflective surface of each roof prism. Oasis improves light emission to 99% over a broader spectrum at the reflective face when compared to silver coating traditionally used on many high-quality roof prism binoculars. The result is a measurable increase in light transmission and overall image clarity. Furthermore they feature PC phase correction coating. When light waves are reflected at the opposite faces of a roof prism, phase shift occurs, resulting in marginal deterioration in sharpness. Phase-corrected coatings are designed to adjust this phase shift within the prism, increasing overall clarity and definition.

Three models with different magnifications are available, the 8x42 and 10x42 (pictured first), and the 10x50 (pictured second). The 10x50 model is well-suited for marine surveying, giving you powerful vision when out at sea.

Key Features:
- 100% made in Japan HD optical system
- High quality 'PC' phase-corrected prism units and Oasis prism coating
- Long eye relief eyepieces giving full field of view for spectacle wearers
- Nitrogen-filled construction for waterproofing to a depth of 3 metres
- Durable, textured 'natural' rubber armouring delivering exceptional comfort and grip
- Wide-wheel glide-action focusing with right-side dioptre adjustment
- Multi-stage (locking) alloy retractable eyecup assemblies (3-stage on the 10x42 and 10x50 models, 4-stage on the 8x42 model)
- Tripod adapter socket
- Comprehensive 30-year warranty
- Includes a softcase, a wide lanyard, Opticron microfibre cleaning cloth, rainguard and integrated objective lens caps.
