Choosing your Binocular
The following information aims to give you a basic understanding
of how binoculars work, the different specifications available and
what they mean, plus some points to help you choose the best
instrument suited to you.
Specification E.g. 8x42. The number ‘8’ denotes the magnification
and means an object appears to be 1/8th of its actual distance
away. Using this rule an object 40m distant appears to be only 5m
away. ‘42’ is the diameter of the objective lens (the large end) in
mm through which light enters the binocular.

Objective Lens
(gathers and

light onto prism)
Objective Lens
Higher magnification binoculars also;
a.have a shallower depth of focus (distance in focus at any one
focus setting), requiring more use of the focus wheel.
b.amplify natural hand-shake affecting the stability of the image
being viewed.
For general observation choose a 7x or 8x magnification. If you
want binoculars of 10x or over try them first.
What objective lens size? The amount of light entering a binocular
is directly related to the surface area of the objective lens (OG). A
50mm OG will admit 2.5x the light of a 30mm OG. The amount
of light reaching the eye is known as the exit pupil diameter (EPD)
and its size can be found by dividing the OG diameter by the
magnification. For example the EPD of an 8x32 = 4mm while the
EPD of an 8x56 = 7mm. As a general rule the iris dilates between
2 and 3 mm (bright sunlight) and 6 and 7 mm (twilight) and so a
choice should be made on the type of use the binocular is being
put to. For general use choose a 7x42 or 8x42 binocular with an
EPD of +5mm.
The field of view of a binocular is dependent on the optical design
and not simply a product of the magnification and objective lens
diameter. It is expressed as either the width of panoramic view in
metres from a distance of 1000 metres or in degrees where 1˚ is
approximately 17.45m.
Real field
of view (6˚)
Z or B stand for porro prism binoculars. The basic optical design
of these ‘traditional-shape’ instruments mean they tend to deliver
better optical performance for your money compared to roof prism
(D) binoculars, which are more compact but also more expensive.
The rise in popularity of roof prism binoculars is as a direct result
of this system being favoured in the development of instruments
with user oriented features. These include; internal focusing for
waterproofing, long eyerelief eyepieces that enable the viewer to
obtain the full field of view with or without glasses and close focus
making them useful for watching butterflies and other insects.
B when seen on roof prism binoculars including Opticron BGA
= full field of view for spectacle wearers. GA = rubber armouring
and W or WA = wide angle vision. CF, (centre focusing) is more
popular than IF (individual eyepiece focusing) especially when
you need to focus at different distances under 50m. Most ‘IF’
binoculars are 7x magnification and have a large depth of focus
which usually eliminates any need for focusing adjustment at
distances over 50m.

Wearing glasses Many binoculars provide the full field of view
when wearing glasses by either folding down the rubber eyecups
or by turning/pushing retractable eyecup assemblies to the ‘down’
position. As a general rule the longer the eyerelief - the distance
between the surface of the eyepiece and the point where the pupil
is positioned for full field of view - the better the instrument for
spectacle wearers. If you think you want to wear glasses while
using your binocular, choose one with an eyerelief of 15mm or
over.
Without glasses
What magnification? Within any given range of binoculars the
higher the magnification relative to the objective lens diameter,
the lower the apparent image quality. Images appear less sharp
and have a lower ‘relative’ brightness and poorer colour contrast.

Aurora® BGA
Roof Prism
8x42
BGA
The Aurora BGA is the definitive example of our
maxim “smaller, lighter, brighter, sharper” in practice.
Building on the strengths of the original BGA concept and models like
the DBA Oasis, both the 8x42 and 10x42 resemble and handle like
smaller 8x32/10x32 binoculars but with the performance advantages
of a larger 42mm objective lens.
Designed and manufactured to be smaller, lighter and sharper with a
wider field of view and better close focus compared to any previous
BGA model, the Aurora delivers the ultimate balance between size
and weight, resolution and field of view currently attainable from this
roof prism format.
The optical design doesn’t just reduce the overall dimensions and
finished weights of the Aurora but delivers 7.2˚ (8x42) / 6.5˚ (10x42)
field of view with stunning resolution guaranteed at under 4” for each
and every binocular. Close focus is under 2m and the model is fully
compatible with the 2.5x UTA.
Manufactured using a lightweight magnesium alloy body and
protected from heavy use and the elements in a beautifully finished
textured rubber covering with patented shock-proof rubber objective
lens protection, the Aurora feels very special in the hand, is perfectly
balanced and comes with a focusing set-up other binoculars can only
aspire to.

Oasis is the name given to a 64 layer coating process
applied to the reflective surface of each roof prism.
Oasis improves light emission to 99% over a broader
spectrum at the reflective face when compared to silver or high reflective
aluminium coatings used on high quality roof prism binoculars. The result
is a measurable increase in light transmission and overall image clarity.

PC phase correction coating
When light waves are reflected at the opposite faces of a roof prism,
phase shift occurs resulting in marginal deterioration in sharpness. Phase
corrected coatings are designed to correct this phase shift within the prism
increasing overall clarity and definition.

In a market segment dominated by the roof prism
binocular, the HR WP re-thinks, re-works and repackages the porro prism binocular for today’s more
demanding user.
Designed for both the enthusiast and those seeking
the very highest optical resolution for their money, the
HR WP successfully combines the inherent qualities
of both traditional porro prism and modern roof prism
formats into a single multi-purpose, user friendly, high
performance field glass.
Available in 8x42 and 10x42, each optical system uses
the enlarged ‘B’ porro prism format in combination
with internal focusing and long focal length long
eyerelief eyepieces. Glass components are of a very
high quality and all air-to-glass surfaces are fully
multi-coated to minimise light loss throughout the
system.
To keep weight at a minimum the chassis is built
using a mix of aluminium, magnesium and plastics.
Hermetically sealed, the models are fully nitrogen
waterproof to a depth of 3m and guaranteed for 30
years against manufacturing defects.
For truly high resolution optics in a modern form,
look no further than the HR WP.

Choosing your Telescope
The majority of terrestrial telescopes are prismatic and as such follow the basic
design of a large monocular (half a binocular) usually between 50mm and 100mm
in diameter, designed for use with a range of different magnification eyepieces.
These prismatic telescopes are often called spottingscopes or fieldscopes.
Porro Prism
(inverts image)
Focusing Lens
(internal focusing
models only)
Objective Lens
(gathers and
directs incoming
light onto prism)
Mirror Prism
(45˚ angled models)
Specifications Opticron telescopes are generally supplied in ‘body only’ format
e.g. MM3 50, HR 66, ES 80. These models have objective lens diameters of 52mm,
66mm and 80mm respectively, no built-in eyepiece and as such allow the choice
of eyepiece to be made separately.
Eyepieces are denoted according to their magnification, whether they are wide
angle (WW or WA) or variable zoom eg. 20-60x. A 20x eyepiece allows the object
being viewed to appear 1/20th of its actual distance away when compared to the
naked eye. Using this rule an object 500m distant appears to be only 25m away.
A 30x eyepiece makes the object appear 16.7m distant while a zoom eyepiece set
at 60x means the same object appears to be just over 8m away.
What magnification? Terrestrial telescopes are most commonly used for high
magnification viewing over long distances in daylight. Image quality at different
magnifications will depend on the optical system, the quality of glass used and
the coatings applied to the surfaces of each lens. There are however a few general
rules that can be applied in determining the right specification for your needs.
Firstly, the relationship between magnification, objective lens dia. and the size of
the eye pupil, and secondly the quality of the optics inside the ‘scope.
In normal daylight, when the pupil is dilated to between 2 and 3mm, a 66 mm
telescope will deliver optimum performance, (the balance between magnification
and image brightness) between 22x and 35x magnification i.e. when the exit
pupil diameter equals that of the iris. In low light when the pupil becomes larger,
dilating to between 5 and 7mm depending on age, optimum performance can
only be obtained by using a lower magnification eyepiece or using a larger
objective lens telescope such as an 80mm or 100mm.
32
Naked eye

30x
For latest information visit: www.opticron.co.uk
The higher the magnification, the greater the image and colour
distortion. These effects can be dramatically reduced by using ED
or Fluorite combination objective lenses that minimise chromatic
aberration, but are expensive. At magnifications of 30x or
lower, the benefits of these lenses are smaller in comparison to
conventional glass objectives.
Field of view is usually expressed as the width in metres of the
image when viewing at a distance of 1000m and is directly related
to the magnification. Generally the greater the magnification, the
smaller the field of view. There are exceptions, namely wide-angle
eyepieces which are designed specifically to provide greater fields
of view. For more information on Opticron eyepieces see page
48. It is important to note that the objective lens, irrespective of
diameter has no influence over the field of view.
Light transmission The best way to assess the actual brightness
of any telescope and eyepiece combination when choosing
for daytime terrestrial use, (assuming equal optical systems) is
to calculate the exit pupil diameter in the same way as with a
binocular and making a trade-off between image brightness and
magnification desired. For general daytime terrestrial observations
good compromise magnifications are between 20x and 30x for a
60mm, 25 to 35x for a 66mm and 25 to 40x for an 80mm.
Resolution As a general rule a good telescope should be able to
resolve two black dots 1.5mm distance apart on a white surface,
in bright daylight from a distance of 50m.
Eyerelief This is the distance between the eye lens and the point
where the pupil is positioned for full field of view and varies from
eyepiece to eyepiece. In some cases the eyerelief is shorter than
that required by spectacle wearers to obtain the full field of view,
especially at higher magnifications. If it is important that you
obtain the full field of view with spectacles please choose any of
the following eyepieces: SDL, HDF T, HDF, HR; 40930, 40931,
40933, IS; 40916, 40918. Remember, rubber eyecups although
fitted to many eyepieces are no guarantee that the full field of
view is obtainable when set in the ‘down’ position and used with
glasses.
Straight-through or 45˚ angled? Common advantages of angled
telescopes are that your back, shoulders and neck are in a more
relaxed position when viewing and the tripod can be set lower
for better stability. Angled scopes allow people of different heights
to view simultaneously without having to make any adjustment
to the height of the tripod. Straight-through telescopes are easier
to use when following fast moving objects, using the instrument
from the confined spaces of a hide or vehicle, or when hand-held.
Our advice Compare different models side-by-side at the same
magnification if possible. Product reports are generally subjective
and are no substitute for individual testing. If you are unable to
test before you make a purchase, contact us for information and
advice on the best model to suit your needs.
Lastly, suitable tripods for any given telescope will, on average,
be around the same weight as the ‘scope. Therefore if you are
thinking of walking any distance with your chosen telescope, pick
it up together with the tripod you are intending to support it with
and take the combination for a ‘test walk’ to see how far you can
comfortably carry it.

High Resolution ED Fieldscopes
“Smaller, lighter, brighter, sharper” HR ED fieldscopes are designed and
manufactured to deliver truly exceptional optical performance combined with
sublime handling and complete reliability.
Aimed squarely at the serious fieldscope user, the models are built to withstand
extremes in temperature, to operate unaffected by rain, cold or humidity and as
such can be used anywhere from equatorial rainforests to the poles. The choice
of body types, viewing eyepieces and dedicated
accessories for observation and photography are
unparalleled and combine to create the most
versatile and complete range of fieldscopes we
have ever produced.
HR 66 GA ED/45˚
shown with SDL v2 18-54x
The optical systems employed in all four variants
deliver the highest resolution of any Opticron telescope
and are matched directly to the SDL zoom eyepiece and
HDF T wide-angle eyepieces. Both the 66mm and 80mm
feature a high definition 5 element apochromat objective
lens system with 2 separate ED elements, and the entire system
utilises Opticron N-type multi-coating. This combination maximises
resolution and colour contrast especially at higher magnifications under a range
of different light conditions.
Mechanically the HR ED feature a lightweight magnesium body complete with
large footprint tripod adapter with +/- 90 degree rotation. Fully nitrogen gas filled
waterproof and hermetically sealed against penetration from dust and moisture,
the telescopes are protected with a textured and highly durable natural rubber
armouring. Other features include a centrally positioned rubber armoured focusing
wheel for optimum accessibility plus a new retractable rubber covered lens hood
with integrated rubber objective lens cap. HR ED fieldscopes are supplied with a
comprehensive 30 year guarantee.
The advantages of ‘ED’­­­
By using two ED ‘extra low dispersion’
glass elements in the primary objective
system, these fieldscopes provide a higher
degree of colour correction compared to
conventional glass and standard ED objectives.
More apparent at higher magnifications and under
certain light conditions (e.g. when looking over water
on a bright warm day) the image appears sharper and
colours remain truer to life across the magnification
range. The ability to bring into clear and sharp focus indistinct
objects such as coloured identification rings or shades of plumage in poor light
over long distances are the hallmarks of an HR ED fieldscope. This extra optical
clarity combined with all the features and exceptional build quality make them
the definitive choice for the professional ornithologist.
HR 80 GA ED/45˚
shown with SDL v2 24-72x
In addition to superior viewing, the benefits of using an HR ED fieldscope for
telephotography are clear. The 40215 Telephotoadapter for SLR cameras is
designed to meet the demands of the amateur wildlife photographer and when
used in conjunction with an HR ED fieldscope ensures the very best definition and
colour reproduction. For more information on telephotography see pages 46-47.

For even greater magnification a 2.5x Tele-adapter is available for SDL, HDF and
HR eyepieces (see page 49 for details).
ES models can be converted for use with SLR cameras for telephotography and are
supplied complete with a 30 year guarantee.
ES 80 GA SD/45˚
The suffix SD for standard belies the quality of this
tri-element 500mm viewing platform. Utilising
Opticron F-type high refractive index multi-coating,
the ES 80 GA SD/45˚ demands serious consideration
for anybody interested in an 80mm fieldscope. Image
texture is slightly softer than sister ED model but the
instrument deals competently with a range of interspersed
colours in varying light conditions up to 60x magnification,
combined with accurate focusing and a welcome lack of
colour distortion.
ES 80 GA ED/45˚
ES 80 GA ED/45˚
The latest optical upgrades, superior RI F-type multi-coating system and ED
objective lens that virtually eliminates the distorting effects of chromatic aberration

ES 100 GA ED/45˚
The advantages of a 100mm diameter
objective lens become clear when viewing
at magnifications over 50x. Having a
surface area 1.5x that of an 80mm OG
fieldscope, the ES 100 is easily able to out
perform similarly specified 80mm (ED and
Fluorite models) delivering brighter images
with a higher resolving power.
For terrestrial use, better definition and
higher colour contrast mean more accurate
and more enjoyable observation. Preferred
eyepieces include the HDF 42xWW, 2780x and SDLv2 27-80x.
For Astronomy the ES 100’s versatility as a
compact 650mm 4” refractor with erected
image viewing should also be considered.
Magnification options for this application
include HDF 6mm and 5mm long eyerelief
eyepieces delivering 107x and 134x
respectively.

bright with a large depth of field - perfect
for either hand held or tripod mounted
observation at close range. Unlike most
other telescopes of similar size, the full
size prism units allow the instrument
to retain its performance right up
to 36x, delivering superior colour
fidelity for longer range viewing even in
comparatively low light.
Images are not just brighter they are sharper too and
the GS 52 GA ED compares well with the GS 665 GA
for resolution at magnifications up to 30x. For garden
birdwatching and photography close focus is just 2.5m.

GS 665 GA
The GS 665 GA is designed for people who desire the
optimum balance between size/weight and optical
performance. With finished weights around 1000g they
are light by any standard, but the larger objective lens
compared to an ordinary 65mm ‘scope means images are
comparatively brighter and sharper. Relatively low
focal length to aperture ratios mean the GS 665
GA are an excellent choice for digi-scoping
too. Recommended eyepieces are the HDF T
18xWW, 25xWW or 16-48x zoom.

MM3 50 ED Travelscopes
Available from January 2014 the MM3 series is the latest evolution of the
Travelscope concept pioneered by Opticron nearly 20 years ago with the original
Mighty Midget 20x50.
Taking all the things that made the MM2 great: size, weight, performance and
connectivity, the MM3 makes further improvements with a brand new body and
high performance fully multi-coated optical system incorporating a brand new
50mm ED objective.
Fitted with any HDF or SDL eyepiece, the field
of view is wider compared to the MM2 with
higher colour contrast across the magnification
range. The centrally positioned dual focuser
features an easy-to-use 8:1 wheel to aid accurate
focusing at top-end magnifications when depth of
focus is reduced.
MM3 50 ED
shown with HDF T 12-36x
MM3 50 ED
shown with HDF T 12-36x
Constructed from polycarbonate and lightweight alloys, the optical system is
compact enough to create a body only 205mm (8”) long. Weighing 600g (21oz)
without eyepiece, 690-875g (24.3-31oz) fitted with an HDF or SDL eyepiece, an
MM3 50 ED weighs about as much as pair of standard 42mm binoculars and can
be used without a support for crystal clear flat field observation at magnification
between 12-15x. If like many users your viewing usually requires the stability of
tripod or clamp, the models connect via a universal ¼” thread at the base of the
tripod sleeve.
Fully rain and dust proof and protected against knocks and bumps with full-body
rubber covering, the MM3 50 ED is available in straight-through and 45° angled
bodies to suit different applications. Compatible with the full range of HR, HDF
and SDL eyepieces also means Opticron fieldscope owners can use
their existing eyepieces with a new MM3 50 ED body1.
Features and specifications at a glance:
•50mm ED objective & fully multi-coated optical system
• High contrast FMC optical system
• Accurate 8:1 dual focusing system
•Close focus to 2.5 metres - perfect for high magnification detailed
observation at close range
• Fully armoured body
•Tripod adapter with +/- 90 degree rotation
•Removable rubber objective lens cover (supplied)
• Telephotoadapter option
• 30 year guarantee
The M3 50 ED is compatible with all metric threaded HR, HR2, HDF,

Telephotography with Opticron Telescopes
40215 TELEPHOTO ADAPTER
Telephotography or digi-scoping is easier than ever
to enjoy using Opticron telescopes in combination
with either SLR cameras (digital or film), or digital
compact cameras and camcorders. In addition to
wildlife observation, images can be taken, edited,
printed and stored with relative ease, enabling the
creation of a unique personal library to be shared in
print or electronically.
The two main options open to the prospective
telephotographer are to
a. combine a telescope with an SLR or system
camera
b. use a telescope together with a compact digital
camera or camcorder.

Notes.
Focusing is facilitated on the telescope.
Camera may need to be operated
in manual mode with shutter locks
disengaged where necessary.
Note. Fold down rubber eyecup must be
removed when using any of the eyepieces
listed.
The high magnification to aperture ratios
result in slower shutter speeds compared
with conventional telephoto lenses so
choose an ISO setting of 400. For 35mm
SLRs 400 ASA film is recommended.
If possible use a cable release or remote
control to reduce camera shake when
operating the shutter.

Digi-scoping with Compact Digital Cameras
and Camcorders
The nature of image capture with digital compact cameras
and camcorders means Opticron telescopes can be used as
high magnification telephoto lenses for wildlife photography
and filming. There are some
limitations to these applications
mainly due to the high
magnifications involved and the
fact that telescope eyepieces are
not designed (mechanically or
optically) to transmit light into
the camera/camcorder lenses.
The vast majority of compact
prismatic telescopes are designed for use with viewing eyepieces
ranging in magnification from 20x to 60x. Using a telescope fitted
with a 20x eyepiece in combination with a camera/camcorder
with an optical zoom of between 0.6x and 20x, it is possible to
take some very high magnification images of wildlife, but the small
effective apertures, fields of view and depth of focus put a limit
on the quality of the final image and one’s ability to successfully
frame a shot.
In addition it is often difficult for
the viewing eyepiece to project
a large enough diameter path
of light into the camera lens
and onto the sensor inside.
This condition, a circular image
within the available rectangular
image frame, is known as Common Tern photographed using a
vignetting. Vignetting can be Panasonic FS16 with HR 66 GA ED
reduced by increasing the zoom and 40809 HDF T 28xWW
setting on the camera or by
cropping out using photo editing software.
To get the best results
Choose a low magnification wide angle eyepiece for your
telescope when using it for digiscoping. As a general rule, the
following eyepieces provide the best overall images with a wide
range of different compact digital cameras. To help they have been
graded according to particular requirement.
1. Overall image quality: 40810 HDF T
2.Flexibility across the widest range of different magnifications:
40936 SDLv2 or 40862 HDF T zoom
Choose a camera/camcorder with a zoom of 5x or less and a small
lens diameter. The smaller the lens diameter the more of its’ surface
area will be covered by light exiting from the telescope eyepiece.
Commonly camera lenses of diameter less than 20mm give best
results and camera lenses over
30mm in diameter will require
at least 3x optical zoom to
attain a ‘full frame’ image.
Use the optical zoom on the
camera/camcorder to reduce
the aperture of the lens to ‘match
up’ with light exiting from the
Pied Wagtail photographed using a
eyepiece. Remember the higher
Panasonic FS16 with ES 80 GA ED
the optical zoom setting, the
and 40810 HDF T 23xWW
higher the magnification of
the final image. E.g. 20x eyepiece plus 3x optical zoom = 60x
(assuming the default magnification on the camera = 1x.)
Important note. In addition to eyepiece magnification and camera
lens diameter, variables such as eyepiece eyerelief and field of
view plus individual camera zoom lens mechanisms all play an
important role in achieving the best overall ‘set-up’ for this type
of telephotography. There is therefore no substitute for individual
testing.

40849 Universal Digital Camera Adapter
The Universal Digital Camera
Adapter is designed to allow
you take high magnification
photographs using Opticron
telescopes and eyepieces in
conjunction with most digital
compact cameras and some
digital camcorders using
eyepiece projection.
Many digital compact cameras
do not have screw threads on the lens housing to allow for direct
coupling, so the UDCA is designed as a three-way adjustable
balance plate that fixes directly to the telescope eyepiece. The
camera is fixed onto the UDCA and can be adjusted on three
planes to enable correct positioning with respect to the eyepiece.
The vertical position of the balance plate can be ‘fixed’ using the
Vertical Locking Ring (VLR) accessory. This enables the camera
+ balance plate to be swung in and out of position allowing you
to alternate between taking pictures and viewing through the
eyepiece in the normal way.
Note. Mounting the UDCA requires an eyepiece dia. less than or
equal to 56mm and fixed (non
rotating) eyepiece tube length
of 15mm.
For more information on
camera kits, DCC adapters,
photoadapters and the UDCA
please telephone us or visit
www.opticron.co.uk and look

Eyepieces
A wide range of eyepieces are available for use with Opticron HR, GS, ES, IS and MM2 fieldscopes. Choosing the best eyepiece is often
confusing but making the right choice will depend on price and application. It is important to remember that the eyepiece is an integral
part of the whole set up and opting for a lower quality lens will affect overall image quality. Eyepieces are listed with their generic code.
For magnification with individual telescope bodies please refer to the tables on each telescope page.
SDL v2 Eyepiece
5-group 8-element ‘super’ zoom, the SDLv2 eyepiece maximises the performance gains
inherent in Opticron ED objective lens fieldscopes at higher powers while maintaining superior
cross-field definition coupled with exceptional viewing comfort.
Mechanically the eyepiece is waterproof and features a rotating eyecup that can be positioned
to match individual needs. Model supplied in soft padded case. 10 year guarantee.

HDF Eyepieces
The preferred choice for image quality, HDF eyepieces have large diameter eye lenses and offer ‘walk-in’ field of vision. The eyepieces
are long eyerelief to enable the full field of view to be obtained with or without spectacles and fixed magnification models are wide
angle. Four of the eyepieces also feature a twist type retractable eyecup assembly that enables individual eye to eyepiece distance
adjustment. 10 year guarantee.
