In addition to waterproofing, the binoculars are protected with durable natural rubber covering.
Featuring a high specification for porro prism optical system, the clarity and field of view derived from the 16x80 makes it an excellent choice for astronomy, while the higher magnification 20x80 and 25x80 are geared more toward long range terrestial observation and specialist outdoor applications such as aircraft observation. All three models provide long eyerelief and deliver full field of view with or without spectacles.
MS-binoculars, regardless of their magnification or aperture, use high-quality optical glass and BAK-4 prisms for high contrast and sharp images across the entire field. Special coatings on all optical surfaces further enhance the image quality and ensure true-to-life colors. You can see e.g. even the finest details in the plumage of birds or in the stadium from the upper ranks.
MS-binoculars have a magnesium housing, the lightest of all metals. Magnesium is furthermore known for its sturdiness and its resistance to corrosion. The binoculars are also covered with a rubber coating, which protects the binoculars further and allows a safe, non-slip grip without weighing too much.
MS-binoculars are IEC-certified with an IPX-7 protection against water, meaning it is resistant to the penetration of water for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 m. So you can use this binoculars safely in rain and splash water. Even a dipping in water makes it unscathed.
MS-binoculars have a comfortable eye relief of 20 mm. The term eye relief explains where you have to place your eye to survey the entire field of view. The smaller this distance, the closer you have to bring your eye to the eyepiece. If you wear glasses and want to watch with them, this distance becomes very important. Since the MS-binoculars have a large eye relief, you can oversee the entire field of view even with your glasses on.
