.......More than 95% Light Transmission!
More freedom of movement whatever the weather – that is the beauty of the VICTORY HT 8x42. Thanks to the 5.3 mm exit pupil diameter, a particularly wide field of view and 8x magnification, these binoculars are outstandingly well suited for a wide range of different uses. The vastly superior transmission levels deliver extremely bright images even in the worst light conditions. This means that you can go on watching for longer, until deep into the twilight. Weighing just 785 g and with their robust, Double-Link-Bridge design, these binoculars are a lightweight and extremely reliable companion – with the highest mechanical focusing precision.
Innovative Optical Concept
Unrivaled brightness, thanks to a light transmission of up to more than 95% - this unique result is created by the innovative optical concept of the VICTORY HT range. It is made possible by the perfect interplay of SCHOTT® HT glass, the Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating and the Abbe-König prism system. Observe those creatures that are active in the twilight hours, such as nightingales, earlier in the morning and bats, screech owls and other shy animals later in the poor light of the evening.
Top quality user ergonomics – that is the promise of the new Comfort Focus concept focusing wheel. The strikingly large focussing wheel is set a long way forwards on the bridge. You will be aware of the benefits the very first time you use the binoculars. The focusing wheel lies automatically below your index finger, your thumbs gently grip the barrels while the remaining three fingers rest easily next to your index finger.
The extremely robust construction offers the very highest levels of precision and durability. The housing, with its innovative double-link bridge, is made of high-tensile, ultra-light magnesium. The focusing wheel is securely embedded in the housing. This means that the VICTORY HT is perfectly equipped for use even in the most extreme conditions.
Brilliant FL Optics
Make the most of the full richness of color and brilliance in the world of birds. The outstanding lens construction, using lenses made of high-performance FL (fluoride) glass helps you to see the colors with more brilliance and natural authenticity and to observe details such as plumage more clearly. Chromatic aberrations are kept to a minimum. Important details, colors and shapes are clearly defined.
Water simply rolls off the lens as it does from a lotus leaf or off a duck's back. The LotuTec®coating on the lens and eyepiece ensures that water or snow simply roll off the surface of the glass. Since neither water nor dirt can collect on the surface of the VICTORY HT you can spend less time cleaning and more time watching nature.
