Orion Scenix 10x50 Wide-Angle Binoculars
|Orion Scenix 10x50 Wide-Angle binoculars provide an extra wide 7-degree field that is superb for scanning the Milky Way. |
Orion Scenix binoculars have always offered superior optical and mechanical quality compared to brands you find at most retail stores. And now Scenix binoculars are even better, incorporating porro prisms made from high-grade BAK-4 optical glass.
You just can't beat Scenix for all-around value. Common, low-priced "mass market" binoculars have to cut corners by coating only one or two visible optical surfaces with antireflection coatings (and leaving many uncoated), by allowing looser tolerances on optical matching and alignment, and by employing poor-quality mechanical components Scenix binoculars are different. Every air-to-glass surface is antireflection coated, and the objective lenses are even multi-coated for additional light transmission. And Orion doesn't use gimmicky "ruby" coatings like you find on some brands, which only serve to turn images green!.
The Orion Scenix 10x50 Wide Angle binocular is a perfect higher-power astro binocular, equally well suited for long-distance terrestrial observing. Extra wide angle 7° field. Weighs 28 oz. Its housing is constructed of sturdy metal, not plastic, and is armored with protective rubber. The large center focusing mechanism is the same one found on many more expensive binoculars.
This binocular is rugged and reliable, delivering sharp images on demand. It includes a vinyl carrying case, lens caps, and deluxe wide neck strap. It accepts a tripod L-adapter (sold separately).
