Product description

More about the series Blackstar...

The new OMEGON 10x42 binoculars with roof prisms are a reliable companion for hiking and birdwatching tours, as well as on the water. A compact and powerful set of binoculars for nature observation.
Those are precisely the advantages of the Omegon 10x42 binoculars with roof prisms; their optics and mechanical structure are both in the upper range of their class.
Due to their shape, they perfectly fit in your hands and the rubber armouring provides a firm grip. During observation, the central focusing wheel can be easily operated with just one finger.
It takes no more than half a turn of the wheel to change focus from near to infinite, so you don't get into irritating trial and error focusing.
The Omegon 10x42 provide a comfortable viewing posture. They come with twist-up eyecups[css] which lock into place, so as to avoid any accidental eyecup retracting during observation.

Optical features
This set of binoculars offers a wide field of view and excellent sharpness across the field. Objective lenses and eyepieces are multi-coated to reduce light reflection. Lens tubes are internally matte blackened, which contributes to further eliminating any reflections that would result in poor contrast and affect observation.

Features in short:
-Comfortable viewing posture
-Twist-up eyecups
-Good overall sharpness
-Multi-coating
-Compact size, but none the less high light transmission
-Good colour correction
-True image reproduction

These Black Star binoculars provide comfortable eye relief via screw-up eyecups. These feature a click-lock function to prevent them being accidentally pushed back in during observing

Our expert comment:

We have run a series of tests on this range of binoculars, together with the Bresser Corvette, Bushnell H2O and another Chinese competitor at the same level. In axial sharpness, reflection suppression, overall sharpness, field size and viewing comfort, the Omegon was noticeably superior to the others, and was awarded a grade 1. They meet the requirements for anyone looking for good quality binoculars in the middle price range. However, we recommend that spectacle wearers observe without their glasses on. Simple sight defects (nearsightedness, farsightedness) can be compensated for with the binoculars.

The 12x42s are all-round binoculars which you can use during the day, but also in twilight. Their 3.5mm exit pupil means they provide a bright image even in twilight.
