Ostara Elinor are top class binos and the 10x42 are extremely portable and well suited for astronomyor wildlife/birding.
The Ostara Elinor2 series is designed to give exceptional clarity and brightness and features upgraded optics over the original award winning Elinor range. The traditional style body further enhances the high quality feel and rugged build with a large easy to operate focus wheel and dioptre adjustment. Designed for the outdoors the range is fully waterproof and nitrogen filled to prevent fogging of the optics.
The 8x magnification coupled with 42mm objective lenses (8×42) is the classic bird watching binocular and is well suited to nature viewing or as a general purpose model. This model is designed to give high clarity, a wide field of view and a natural well balanced image (true to life colour due to fully multicoated optics).
High Resolution BAK4 prisms ensure a bright image throughout the range of magnifications by maximising light transmission. Efficient use of the light gathered is particularly important at high magnifications where images appear darker or for applications were colour identification is essential. The traditional porro prism designed gives higher quality images when compared to roof prism or compact (reverse) porro prism designs in the same price range.
Long eye relief makes these binoculars ideal for spectacle wearers. It enables users wearing glasses to view the entire field of view as the binocular image is projected further out of the exit pupil. This model features twist eyecups for comfort and durability.
The quality of the image produced by these binoculars is such that you could use it for applications that would normally require a higher magnification and it compares very favourably to binoculars more than double its normal retail price.
