Vixen - Giant 16-40x80 ARK BCF Binoculars
For image quality and precise optics, Vixen's Giant ARK series of large nitrogen purged, waterproof binoculars are the answer. The same care that goes into making our high-end telescopes is evident in our large aperture binoculars. The Vixen ARK Series binoculars are used for viewing the night sky or for long distance terrestrial viewing.
The NEW 16-40x80 Zoom Binoculars (not waterproof) have the zoom focus conveniently located near the right eye piece.
All ARK Binoculars can be either hand held, or for the most stable viewing platform, mounted on Porta II mount (shown here) or a photographic tripod (with the optional tripod adapter).
The 80mm diameter lenses of these units allow the observer to take in such celestial sights as the Orion or Lagoon Nebula and other celestial wonders. The Milky Way, the Moon and bright comets will jump out at you with this combined aperture and power.
The optics on the Vixen ARK series binoculars are multicoated and the prisms are made from BaK4 glass. This combination allows for the greatest transfer of light through the optics. Other benefits include rugged optical housings, fine focusing and a right eye dioptor to allow for left/right eyesight differences.
