Travel light with MONARCH HG 8x30 binoculars to bring nature up close.
You’ll spot the tiniest details when birdwatching, enjoying the great outdoors or exploring urban architecture, as a Field Flattener Lens System offers a wide field of view with edge-to-edge sharpness. Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass gives a contrast-rich and high-resolution image while a dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coating creates an exceptionally bright view. Together they ensure you’ll experience colours so natural they’ll take your breath away. And it’s all packed into a waterproof and fog-proof magnesium alloy body weighing just 450 g.
For high optical performance on the go, choose the sleek and compact MONARCH HG 8x30.
When you need exceptionally precise optics in a lightweight body that’s easy to carry, MONARCH HG 8x30 delivers. Experience a wide field of view (60.3°) and see every little detail right to the periphery, thanks to the Field Flattener Lens System which compensates for curvature of field. Easily locate and identify birds at rest or in flight, scan the coastline or hills for wildlife, or discover the finer points of ancient ruins and modern buildings – you can take it all in with outstanding clarity.
Nature’s beauty comes to life when you can experience her true colours. Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass makes this a reality by correcting the chromatic aberration that causes colour fringing, giving you images that are rich in contrast and high in resolution, for nuanced colours that are true to life. A high-quality multilayer coating is applied to all lenses and prisms – combined with a dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coating on the roof prism to increase reflection – to improve light transmission for outstanding brilliance and natural colour fidelity. With light transmittance of 92% or higher, you’ll always get a superbly bright and sharp view. When birdwatching you’ll be sure you’re identifying the right colour, on city breaks you can enjoy the diversity of colours in urban facades, and when hiking or sailing you’ll see distant outcrops or coastlines in living colour.
There’s no sacrifice in the compact design of MONARCH HG 8x30 binoculars – all the premium optics you need are packed into a lightweight yet robust casing. The sleek magnesium alloy body weighs only 450 g, plus it’s waterproof and fog-proof to withstand the toughest conditions. The nitrogen-filled body resists water pressure to a depth of 5 m for 10 minutes, and prevents fogging inside the optical system even in low-pressure environments up to a height of 5,000 m. A scratch-resistant coating has also been applied to the objective lenses and the eyepieces for greater durability. These are binoculars you’ll be happy to carry with you all day – and will offer you a surprisingly high-quality view for their size.
