Product Features in Detail
Up to 15% extended field of view
Depending on the APO/HG model used, the optimized and newly calculated prisms and eyepieces offer the hunter an extended field of view of up to 15 %
Optical glass from SCHOTT
SCHOTT is a multi-national, technology based group developing and manufacturing special glass, specialty materials, components and systems for more than 125 years to improve how people live and work.
Distance-scale for a quick distance-setting
A quick glance at the focusing wheel makes these binoculars a reliable rangefinder. The scale on the focusing wheel of the MINOX HG binoculars gives information of the distance to the object focused on.
The new MINOX Quick-Close Focus system needs only one turn of the focusing wheel to adjust the HG-binoculars from close to infinite.
Clear viewing thanks to MINOTEC (only APO HG)
Thanks to MINOTEC technology the objective lenses can be cleaned quickly and conveniently. Dust and dirt particles are wiped away with ease.
Unrivalled lightweight and body shaping
All bodies of the MINOX HG binocular series are manufactured from magnesium. This gives them an unrivalled light weight. This ergonomically shaped body is then coated with rubber armor for a comfortable grip.
Highest light transmission through M*Lens coating
The innovative M*coating of the lenses optimises the light transmission and colour rendition. With up to 21 applied layers to the glass surface, light loss by reflection is avoided.
Ideal reflection through the non-glare coating MinoBright®
This novel silver-bearing MinoBright® coating is used to apply a non-glare surface to the prisms to ensure highest reflection of light. As a result, images are very bright, with high contrast.
Guarantee for a long life: ARGONGAS INSIDE
A superior argon gas filler protects the inner glass surfaces against fogging and corrosion, because it does not react with the other materials. Due to its larger molecules, argon gas has a slower rate of diffusion than the conventional nitrogen, which guarantees that the super gas remains inside the binoculars for much longer than is the case with nitrogen.
Apochromatic lenses (only APO HG)
The use of special glass containing fluoride in ED binoculars has improved the optical performance significantly. This glass provides a solid image exceptionally rich in detail and with high colour rendition throughout the visual field. The user is able to see true-to-life images, even under critical lighting conditions
