VIXEN 6.5X32mm ED BINOCULARS - UT-13967

Vixen Optics 6.5x32 WP ED Astro Binocular

Multiple optical technologies are brought to the fore to boost image quality. These technologies begin with the use of extra-low dispersion (ED) glass for the objective lens elements and low-light absorption BK7 glass for the roof prisms. Next are specially-engineered 7-layer anti-reflection coatings, fully multi-coated on the optics, which are tuned specifically for starlight and for use in the dark for maximum light transmission, accurate color rendition, and improved contrast. The prisms have phase-correcting and highly-reflective dielectric coatings which work together to boost light transmission through the prisms to greater than 99%, and eliminate color fringing, and further improve clarity and contrast across the expansive field of view. All these features, when coupled with its relatively low 6.5x magnification, present the user with an immersive observational experience with bright and clear expansive views, and accurate color representation.

Complementing the optical performance is a unique focusing system that eliminates the common center focus/dioptric correction for individually-focusing eyepieces — this allows a level of precision that center focusing systems often are unable to achieve but is required to split fine binary stars and bring dim objects into sharp resolution. This variable-speed mechanism further improves focus precision by slowing down as it approaches infinity, to provide even finer-tuning of the focus process that single-speeds cannot give.

To withstand the rigors of outdoor use, the chassis is made of a lightweight and durable magnesium alloy that reduces weight, and the optical tubes are wrapped in slip-resistant rubber armor. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature and environmental conditions. For extended observation sessions, the Astro can be tripod mounted using an optional adapter for hands-free use to reduce distracting hand-shake or vibrations, and eliminate arm fatigue.

Optical Performance

  • Relatively low atypical 6.5x power magnifies view while ensuring a wide field of view and exit pupil, and long eye relief
  • Moderate 32mm objective lenses provide performance without adding excessive bulk
  • Compact low-absorption BK7 roof prisms help to maximize light transmission through optical path
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings increase contrast and clarity while eliminating halos and off-axis comas
  • Highly-reflective silver and dielectric prism coatings transmit greater than 99% of light to limit internal light loss while maintaining image brightness, contrast, and clarity
  • Extra-low dispersion glass corrects chromatic aberration to produce accurate colors without fringing
  • 7-layer anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics are engineered specifically for nighttime astronomical use to produce neutral and accurate color fidelity, and improve contrast and image brightness
  • Exceptional 473-foot field of view at 1000 yards minimizes the appearance of the distracting hand-shake that is common when holding optics, for clearer views
