Orion gets requests all the time from serious amateur astronomers
asking what binocular we'd recommend for wide-field stargazing. Well,
from now on our answer will be "Resolux"! They're our new favorite astro
binoculars (and equally superb for long-distance daytime viewing),
combining high-resolution, flat-field optics with mechanical
construction that meets the U.S. military spec for ruggedness and the
strict JTII spec for collimation. They are fully waterproof, and
nitrogen purged to prevent internal lens fogging. And all this for a
very reasonable price.
With this Resolux 15x70 binocular, you'll enjoy performance that you
simply won't find in other binoculars. Your first scan of the Milky Way
will prove it — pinpoint stars set in bold contrast against the dark
background. Gorgeous! The extra-large BAK-4 prisms and advanced
multi-coatings on all optical surfaces really drink in the light. The
eyepieces focus individually, which yields a sturdier mechanical design
than a center-focus mechanism. And with 18mm of eye relief, even
eyeglass wearers will see the full field of view.
This Resolux's all-metal housing is armored with thick rubber to
ensure a secure, comfortable grip. Each binocular comes with lens caps,
heavy-duty tripod adapter, and neck strap. This binocular comes with a
foam-lined hard case.
