More about the series Zoomstar...
Large Omegon zoom binoculars, a handy instrument for all uses.
With their 80 mm lens aperture, the 15-45x80 binoculars already provide fairly high light transmission, thus enabling observation not only at daylight but also at dusk or at night.
As the exit pupil of these binoculars is 5.3 mm (at 15x magnification), they provide bright images during animal watching or astro-observation. For the latter, they are fitted with a robust integrated metal tripod adapter. This adapter slides back and forth, thus enabling you to find the perfect balance for the instrument on the tripod, which ensures steady and relaxing observation.
These binoculars gather as much as 130 times more light than the naked eye.
Multicoating ensures reduced light reflection.
No matter which kind of observation you prefer, the Omegon 15-45x80 will always do an excellent job and, what's more, with a stunning price/performance ratio.
Features in short:
-Multicoated objective lens and eyepieces
-Zoom factor 15-45x
-Sliding metal adapter with 1⁄4" screw-thread
-Central focusing wheel
-Fold-down rubber eyecups
Our expert comment:
Unfortunately, zoom binoculars often show an undesirable 'tunnel effect' (the view through the binoculars is like looking through a tunnel). Experienced users therefore usually use binoculars with fixed magnifications as they offer a more comfortable viewing. Recommended binoculars in this price range are Omegon Nightstar 20x80 and Omegon Nightstar 25x100
