Pin-sharp images with natural color rendition are primary features of the APO HG binoculars from MINOX. Two models of these apochromatically corrected binoculars are available - 8.5x43 and 10x43, both developed with the latest technology in binocular design. With SCHOTT flouride ED-glass lens elements, the APO HG binoculars deliver a brilliant color-fringe- free image, and the Minotec multicoating on the glass repels dirt, dust and water, or other general soiling of external glass surfaces. Officers can wipe them clean with no damage to the lens, and water droplets tend to roll off. The high-quality ED glass composition produces natural color rendition, high contrast and minimal glare. Aspherical lenses inside the eyepieces add a further guarantee for consistent sharpness right to the outer edges. These APO binoculars include all of the proven features from the original HG line, including the M*multicoating of 21 layers, the silver-bearing Minobright reflection of the phase-corrected roof prisms, and also the MINOX Quick-Close-Focus feature. A single turn of the focus knob takes officers quickly from close-up to infinity and also includes a convenient distance scale on the knob. The body is made of rugged but lightweight magnesium, weighing 23.3 ounces. With a protective rubber armor coating, they are watertight to a depth of 16 feet. These APO HG binoculars come in a handsome wooden box, with an elegant leather case and a neoprene strap.
