  • Description

    A nice pair of 8x42 binoculars offers the best of both worlds. The large 42 mm optics will gather a lot of light, which is especially important during low light conditions such as sunrise, sunset, and observations that take you from sun to shade and back again. The Meade 8x42 Wilderness Binoculars have multi-coated 42 mm optics and BaK-4 prisms to deliver bright, sharp, high resolution images! 42 mm optics aren’t as large as binoculars with a 50 mm aperture, and that keeps the weight down so you can observe longer without resorting to mounting them on a tripod.

    The 8X magnification of these binoculars also serves the user in two ways. It provides a magnification “sweet spot” for most observers, especially when used for longer periods of time. Most everybody can easily hand-hold an 8X binocular, and this is important because you want to keep the image as steady as possible for the sharpest (and most comfortable) views. An 8x42 binocular also produces a large 5.25 mm exit pupil, delivering just about the largest diameter of light that adult eyes can handle.

    The Meade 8x42 Wilderness Binoculars have a green, waterproof rubber armor coating to protect against water intrusion, fogging, and accidental drops and bumps. The roof prism design is rugged, the eyecups fold back for eyeglass wearers, and the nice, wide 6.8-degree field of view feels natural. To complete the package, you’ll receive a padded case, neck strap, cleaning cloth, and Limited Lifetime Warranty.
