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 40 yards distant appears to be only 5 yards
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
feet/meters from a distance of 1000 yards/meters or in degrees where
1˚ is approximately 52 feet/17.45 meters.
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.
50yds
400yds
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.

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 color contrast.

The rise in popularity of roof prism binoculars is as a direct result
of this system being favored 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 armoring and
W or WA = wide angle vision. CF, (center focusing) is more popular
than IF (individual eyepiece focusing) especially when you need to
focus at different distances under 50yds. Most ‘IF’ binoculars are
7x magnification and have a large depth of focus which usually
eliminates any need for focusing adjustment at distances over 50yds.

Aurora® BGA
Roof Prism
8x42 BGA
Black
The Aurora BGA is one of the best examples
of putting our maxim “smaller, lighter, brighter,
sharper” into practice.
Building on the strengths of the original BGA concept and models like
the DBA Oasis, the Aurora resembles and handles like 32mm but with
the performance advantages of a 42mm.­­
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 arc
seconds for each and every binocular. Close focus is rated at under 6ft.
Manufactured using a lightweight 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.
Other features include:
•Fully nitrogen waterproof to a depth of 16ft
•540˚ rotation focus for precise adjustment with sub 6ft close focus
Long eyerelief eyepieces with
4 stage rotating retractable
eyecup assembly

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
aluminum coatings used on high quality roof prism binoculars. The result
is a measurable increase in light transmission and overall image clarity.

Choosing your Fieldscope
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 fieldscopes are generally supplied in ‘body only’ format
e.g. GS 52, 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 500 yards distant appears to be only 25yds
away. A 30x eyepiece makes the object appear 16.7yds distant while a zoom
eyepiece set at 60x means the same object appears to be just over 8yds away.
What magnification? Terrestrial fieldscopes 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 66mm
fieldscope will deliver optimum performance, (the balance between magnification
32
Naked eye
20x
30x
For latest information visit: www.opticronusa.com
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 fieldscope such
as an 80mm or 100mm.
The higher the magnification, the greater the image and color distortion.
These effects can be dramatically reduced by using ED or Fluorite
combination objective lenses that minimize 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 yards/meters of the
image when viewing at a distance of 1000 yards/meters 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. 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
fieldscope 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 tradeoff 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 fieldscope should be able to resolve
two black dots 1.5mm distance apart on a white surface, in bright
daylight from a distance of 50yds.
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. Opticron SDL and HDF eyepieces offer the full field of
view for spectacle wearers.
Straight-through or 45˚ angled? Common advantages of angled
fieldscopes 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 fieldscopes 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 is to 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 fieldscope will, on average, be
around the same weight as the ‘scope. Therefore if you are thinking of
walking any distance with your chosen fieldscope, 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 exceptional optical performance combined with sublime
handling and total reliability.
Aimed squarely at the serious user, HR ED fieldscopes are built to withstand
extremes in temperature, to operate unaffected by rain, cold or humidity and
be used anywhere from the equatorial rainforests to the poles. The choice of
body types, eyepieces and accessories for observation and telephotography are
unmatched and combine to create one of the most versatile ranges of professional
spottingscopes available on the market.
HR 66 GA ED/45˚
shown with SDL v2 18-54x
Optically the HR ED deliver the highest
resolution figures of any Opticron
fieldscope as each model contains a high
definition 5 element apochromat objective
lens with 2 individual ED elements. As
well as maximizing image sharpness, this
second element delivers significant reductions
in chromatic aberration at higher magnification
settings compared to single element designs.
To optimize light transmission and color contrast across
the magnification range, Opticron N-type extra wide band
multi-coating is applied to all air/glass surfaces throughout each instrument.
Mechanically HR ED fieldscopes feature a lightweight magnesium alloy body
fitted with a large footprint tripod adapter that offers +/- 90 degree rotation around
the central axis of the scope.
Fully nitrogen gas filled waterproof and hermetically sealed against penetration
from dust and moisture, the spottingscopes are protected from the elements with
a durable soft touch textured rubber armor.
Other features include a centrally positioned rubber armored focusing wheel for
optimum accessibility plus a retractable rubber covered lens hood (sunshade)
with integrated rubber objective lens cap.

deals competently with a range of interspersed colors
in varying light conditions up to 60x magnification,
combined with accurate focusing and a welcome lack
of color distortion.
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 over 35x magnification
all combine to further enhance the performance of this popular
80mm model. Images are vibrant and ‘true to life’ and what’s more reproduced consistently across the magnification range.

ES 100 GA ED/45˚
The advantages of a 100mm diameter
objective lens become clear when viewing
at magnifications over 50x. With a surface
area 1.5x that of an 80mm 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 color contrast mean more accurate
and more enjoyable observation. Preferred
eyepieces include the HDF 42xWW, 27-80x
and SDLv2 27-80x.

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.
Constructed from polycarbonate and lightweight alloys, the optical system is
compact enough to create a body only 8” long. Weighing 21oz without eyepiece,
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 1215x. 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.

Telephotography with Opticron Fieldscopes
40215 TELEPHOTO ADAPTER
Telephotography or digi-scoping is easier than ever to
enjoy using Opticron fieldscopes 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 spottingscope with an SLR or compact
system camera (CSC)
b. use a spottingscope together with a compact digital
camera or camcorder.

Notes.
Focusing is facilitated on the
spottingscope. Camera may need to be
operated in manual mode with shutter
locks disengaged where necessary.
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

Digi-scoping with Compact Digital Cameras and
Camcorders
The nature of image capture with digital compact cameras and
camcorders means Opticron fieldscopes 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 spottingscope eyepieces
are not designed (mechanically or
optically) to transmit light into the
camera/camcorder lenses.
The vast majority of compact
prismatic spottingscopes are designed for use with viewing eyepieces
ranging in magnification from 20x to 60x. Using a spottingscope 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 vignetting. Vignetting
can be reduced by increasing the
zoom setting on the camera or by
cropping out using photo editing Green Jay photographed using a
Panasonic FH2 with HR 80 GA ED
software.
and 40810 HDF T 27xWW
To get the best results
Choose a low magnification wide angle eyepiece for your
spottingscope 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 spottingscope 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.
Altamira Oriole photographed using
a Panasonic FH2 with HR 80 GA ED
and 40810 HDF T 27xWW
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.

Digi-scoping
All of the above are supplied with 42mm T-mount and 28mm screw
thread step rings to allow switching between a T-mount and SLR
camera or a compatible compact camera.
40849 Universal Digital Camera Adapter
The Universal Digital Camera
Adapter is designed to allow
you take high magnification
photographs using Opticron
spottingscopes and eyepieces in
conjunction with a wide range of
cameras and camcorders.
Designed as a three-way adjustable
balance plate that fixes directly to
the spottingscope 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 diameter
less than or equal to 56mm and
fixed (non rotating) eyepiece tube
length of 15mm.

GA ED and 40810 HDF T 27xWW
Use the optical zoom on the
camera/camcorder to reduce the
aperture of the lens to ‘match
up’ with light exiting from the
eyepiece. Remember that the
higher the optical zoom setting,
the higher the magnification of the
final image e.g. 20x eyepiece plus
3x optical zoom = 60x (assuming
the default magnification on the
camera = 1x.)

Eyepieces
A wide range of eyepieces are available for use with Opticron HR, GS, ES and IS 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 fieldscope bodies please refer to the tables on each fieldscope page.
SDL v2 Eyepiece
A 5-group, 8-element ‘super’ zoom, the SDLv2 eyepiece maximizes the performance gains
inherent in Opticron ED objective lens fieldscopes at higher powers while maintaining superior
cross-field definition coupled with exceptional viewing comfort.

HDF T Eyepieces
The preferred choice for image quality, HDF T
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. The eyepieces feature a twist
type retractable eyecup assembly that enables
individual eye to eyepiece distance adjustment.
