How do I Choose The Right Binoculars?

With a good pair of binoculars, you get a whole new experience of nature. What is a good pair of binoculars and the amount of such costs is the big question. But after reading this article you should be closer to the answer.
All binoculars have properties defined by numbers. A typical example of speech that says something about the binoculars are 7×42. 7x stands for the magnification, the object is 7 times greater in binoculars. Do you see an animal on the 100 meters distance see it with binoculars as it stands about 14 meters (100/7 = 14.2). Do you have a telescope with 10 times magnification Thus it looks like 10 meters.

42 enter the front of the lens size and is indicated as the diameter in millimeters. Larger diameter improves light intake and thus better vision in fog and poor light conditions. What magnification do you choose? It is not always the case that a high magnification for better observation. The greater the magnification you choose the more stable base you need. The reason is that higher magnifications means a higher sensitivity to the movements and the like.On the boats, we recommend no more than 7x.

Many stop at 8x when used on land. Greater than 10x magnification makes the slightest movement of the body affects the sight, which then becomes difficult to keep stable, here recommended that the telescope is used with a tripod.

Have you stable surface or a tripod, you can choose a pair of binoculars with up to 30x magnification, it obviously depends on what you should have it. Do you have sufficient time to prepare the ground, or you must be able to use it quickly?

Here you can see our wide selection out binoculars. Compact Binoculars or a full? If you are going to use binoculars on longer trips are compact binoculars is a good choice. It is lighter and can be worn around the neck or on the belt. Typical models are 8×25 or 10×25. With 25 mm front lens function, these models good for day trips but slightly worse when it’s getting dark. But it is easy to produce and use.

Focus
If you do not have the same sharpness on both eyes must adjust diopterstyrkan as in most binoculars sitting on the right side.
To do this:

Set the correct eye relief by opening or folding of the hop binoculars. Then close your right eye and adjust the focus until the object is clearly visible. Then close your left eye and fine-tunes right. Then you can take care of both with a focus on the control center.

Some binoculars have autofocus, it is fast and easy, but gives poorer adjustment.

A tip: Most binoculars have a specified minimum area of focus. Check this carefully if want to use it for closer study of insects and summer birds. Price The price often say very much about the quality of the optics. Material quality is better in more expensive binoculars than simply cheaper. The noticeable contrast and färgavvikningar and that they do not have any deviations in the edges.

Expensive binoculars often have an advanced surface treatment of the lenses. Such treatment prevents the light is reflected and instead allows all the light to flow through as freely as possible. It results in better light sensitivity of the telescope and you can see details at dusk you would otherwise have missed.

For example, a mountain at dusk to look like a large area with a cheap pair of binoculars while you can see gradations and detail of the mountain with a more expensive one. You may find also wildlife thanks to it.

How well-made treatment is also reflected in the price. Some lens treatments also toss free lenses. Zeiss LotuTec-coating makes the surface completely water-resistant, which means that the drops simply slides off the glass.

Also check if the cavity is filled with nitrogen gas. It is a quality of character that makes the binoculars is less sensitive to temperature fluctuations and moisture. Maintenance Avoid touching the lens surface. In practical use, it is not easy to avoid dirt, dust or fingerprints on the lenses. It should be gently wipe with lens cleaning cloth lens cleaning cloth and special lens cleaning fluid. Never clean your lenses with paper towels, etc.

When storing, the telescope is taken out of its box and kept in a dry, cool place. Large temperature changes can cause moisture condensation on the lenses.
