    APO-HG: The new top class from MINOX - Outstanding optics based on apochromatic lens technology


    Pin-sharp optics with natural color rendition puts the new APO-HG binoculars from MINOX in a class of their own and first in the top league. The APO-HG 8x43 BR and the APO-HG 10x43 BR models impressively represent the latest technologies in binocular design. Featuring SCHOTT fluoride ED-glass lens elements these apochromatically-corrected binoculars deliver a brilliant color-fringe-free image. The new type of MINOTEC multicoating, which is a nanotechnology application, helps to repel dust, water and soiling from the external glass surfaces.


    In cooperation with MINOX the glass engineers of SCHOTT AG, which is based in the city of Mainz,  designed the required glass composition for the APO technology. The high quality ED glass (N-PK 52 A) awards the new HG binoculars apochromatic properties that deliver an exceptional optical performance. The APO HG optical system boasts natural color rendition, high contrast and also minimizes glare. Aspherical lenses inside the eyepieces guarantee consistent sharpness from the center right into the edges.


    Outdoor use is greatly enhanced with the MINOTEC multicoating. Based on a modified objective-lens surface structure any adhering dust particles and other soiling components can be simply wiped off. Even water droplets pearl off with ease.


    The APO binoculars also feature all the proven features of the HG line and deliver top class performance in every discipline. This includes among other things the M* multicoating of 21 layers and the silver-bearing Minobright reflection of the phase-corrected roof prisms. The handling of the binoculars has been optimized further with the Quick-Close-Focus (QCF) feature developed by MINOX. Just a single turn of the focus knob is all that is needed to adjust the APO HG binoculars from close-up to infinity, the user can also carry out a very fast adjustment in the near-focus range and precision focusing at greater distances. The distance scale on the central focusing wheel informs the user on the distance from the subject in view. The body, with its waisted design, is made of extremely robust and exceptionally light magnesium, and together with the protective rubber armoring weighs in at an unbeatable 660 grams. The binocular body is watertight down to a depth of five meters. To ensure reliable, lasting protection against corrosion and fogging it is filled with argon gas.


    The large focusing wheel is made of metal and boasts both an attractive and a functional design. It also features a cross knurl making it and the diopter-compensation ring extremely good to hold. To avoid light reflections both of these parts have an anodized gun-metal grey finish.


    MINOX APO-HG binoculars come in an exclusive wooden box together with an elegant leather case as well as a neoprene strap and lens cleaning set.
