Perfection for
true experts
OPTOLYTH® ROYAL
The pride of a big name
Today’s hunting and game keeping standard is
raised in its significance far beyond in former times.
The hunter is both a huntsman and an ecologist, he
keeps a entire balance in his own territory.
The ROYAL-series meets
these demands.
All sets of glasses are covered with robust rubber armor for practical and demanding use over the years. The two focussing
wheels offer high ease of use, even over longer periods of observation. Hide glasses provide for absolute border contrast
in the twilight. The Abbe-Koenig prism system is, of course, phase corrected and just like all the other lenses in this model,
covered with the proven Ceralin-plus
Ceralin-Multicoating. Naturally, the glasses are protected against water splashes and filled at the
factory with argon.
ROYAL 8x56
The real binoculars used most of the time while sitting in raised stands for wild boars and red
deer. A very large exit pupil and easy to handle magnification make it easier to watch for hours.
Performance at twilight is only negligibly lower than performance with the ROYAL 9x63, but these
binoculars are somewhat lighter, smaller and because of this easier to handle.
ROYAL 10x56
A perfect companion in rambling territory. When great distances have to be covered, the high
magnification plays its advantage. The greatest possible brilliance and brightness as well as a still
image make it easier to approach game animals.
ROYAL 9x63
The 9x63 BGA is particularly suitable for night stand watching. Nine fold magnification
combined with 63mm field lenses also produce brilliant images even in poor light conditions.
High resolution power – in the border area as well – supports the hunter in their decision
making. These glasses let you sit for longer into the twilight.
ROYAL 15x63
Handy roof prism glass with 5-lens field lenses with fluoride achromatic lenses. Bird and
nature watchers experience the greatest trueness of color, winning imaging capability and
quality without compromise even at a long range. An integrated tripod connection makes it
easier to observe from a long distance.

The lightweight
of the top class
OPTOLYTH® ALPIN
The right binoculars for anyone
For most of us the purchase of a pair of binoculars is a one time affair. The highest precision, uncompromising optical
performance and first class manufacturing with a light weight are the overriding decision making criteria. The ALPIN
lightweights were already the first choice for everyone who needed a professional set of binoculars. The ALPIN
(new
generation) series combines the highest precision and outstanding optical performance with a well-balanced design. The
diversification of the ALPIN
series in 3 model ranges using 6 different glasses makes the selection of the optimum version
for the desired purpose possible. Ornithologists, nature lovers, hikers and hunters make their decision based on focussing of
performance at twilight, the weight or the magnification.
ALPIN
8x30 BGA
The small all-rounder
By its well-balanced optical data and the brilliance of 12 lenses and 4 prisms this is the suitable
binocular for all purposes like weekend outings at the zoo or on trips. The smallest model of
the Alpin series at 475 g is lightweight and for this reason is optimally suited to all hikers and
mountain climbers. The large field of view of 130 mm offers a good overview
ALPIN
7x42, 8x40, 10x40 BGA
High power middle class
The ALPIN
series was created for everyone requiring high intensity of light with a low
weight. Hunters prefer the 7x42 BGA predominantly for deer stalking. The low magnification
allows for a quick response. The 8x40 BGA are high power wide aperture multipurpose
binoculars. Active people who don’t like to miss an opportunity reach for the 10x40 BGA with
their high magnification at a weight of just 590 g. At air shows they bring the bold leap of the
parachutist athletes up close, the world cup slalom is followed through all of the gates.
ALPIN
10x50, 12x50 BGA
Brilliance for the specialists
The large ALPIN
binoculars offer performance as demanded by the professionals, when
the lighting conditions become a challenge. Ornithologists and behavioral scientists need
the 10x50 BGA or 12x50 BGA when making a headcount. Observation of shy varieties and
clutches that are difficult to access in reeds along the bank, for example.

Quality
for the ambitious
OPTOLYTH® ALPIN Classic
Retro-Design for experts
The newest optical precision in a known and
much valued design. This really is the best way to describe the ALPIN Classics.
The Classics shine because of the same, outstanding field lenses of the ALPIN binoculars. Compared with the ALPIN NG
series the weight was lowered again due of the new rubber cover. The smooth running mechanics with the practical central
focussing wheel was adopted from the Alpin NG binoculars as well. Because of the particularly stable Porro prisms the glasses
are shock absorbing and suitable for rugged use. The computer calculated ray path ensures the highest imaging quality. The
CeralinCeralin-plus
-Multicoating provides for the best contrast. Needless to say, you have the complete variety of products of the
ALPIN binoculars at your disposal here as well.
ALPIN Classic 8x30
Near by as a multipurpose binocular all over the place. The low weight and the well balanced
optical performance make these the ideal companion for hikers and nature watchers. Because of
the small design they are quickly stored away and just as fast are ready for action again. The retro
design with the black, non-slip, rubber armor makes the heart of the user beat faster.
ALPIN Classic 7x42, 8x40, 10x40
In the case of the ALPIN Classic 10x40 “See a lot, carry a little” is especially applicable for
ornithologists and nature lovers. Mountaineers need phenomenal performance at a minimum
weight and during a strenuous ascent they reach for the ALPIN Classic 7x42. The awe-inspiring
panorama can be enjoyed anyway because of the large field of view and the low magnification.
The ALPIN Classic 8x40 gives the decisive head start when stalking; they are light and handy and
are always there with you in hard to access territories.
ALPIN Classic 10x50, 12x50
To satisfy the demands of the most professional as well the two largest ALPIN binoculars
are added seamlessly to the high quality palette of products. When it becomes necessary to
observe extremely shy animals, the high magnification helps without a need to disturb the
wildlife or a bird in their natural habitat.

Mini binoculars
with maximum
performance
OPTOLYTH® SPORTING
The binoculars for everyone
Our collapsible pocket binoculars are easy ready to use when
there is something to look at, especially when every ounce of
weight matters. There are a wide variety of tasks for which the
SPORTING series can prove their worth. They are with you everywhere
folded up and ready immediately if required. Regardless of whether you are at the
speedway, the sailing regatta or in a stadium. The SPORTING catches everything closely
that others can only guess at. The little treasure is also an ideal gift for every hiker and nature watcher.
The SPORTING pocket binoculars are dust and water proof, argon filled. They convince because of a moderate field of
view at water sports, while traveling or even in an open air theater with a conveniend eyepiece for people who wear
glasses. Is rounded up by modern internal focussing and the attractive non-slip rubber amoring that people like.
The glasses of the SPORTING series impress through low weight and optimum comfort, while being carried such that
folded together they subtly find a place even in the smallest of pockets .
SPORTING 8x24
At a featherweight of 220 grams these binoculars hardly weigh more than a chocolate bar and
because of this are ideal for anyone who has to think about weight in their equipment, for
example when you are going high performance trekking in the Himalayas for several weeks
where each load weighs double. Through the large field of view the observer taps into the
sweeping surroundings and is tempted into new climbing trips.
SPORTING 10x28
With their 10x magnification these binoculars are just matched for the nature lover, who always
wants to be equipped in the event of all circumstances. At sporting events, such as golfing
tournaments, for example or football games you experience the event with the SPORTING as
if you were part of it. With its dimensions of 114x100x33 mm it can still find a space in the smallest
pocket.
SPORTING 12x30
With higher magnification at a close-up range of 3.2 meters you can confidently view a teeming
ant hill from a distance without even having to miss out on the smallest detail. When it is a
question of the greatest possible resolution at the lowest weight the SPORTING 12x30 is at the
sharp end and delights the observer with accuracy in every detail.

Small in construction
phenomenal in performance
OPTOLYTH® MINI spotting scope
Vivid diversity, unexpectedly close
Years of experience in the construction of spotting scopes pays off when the conceptual design of top quality products is
concerned. The MINIs have a world class, solid position and make this unmistakably clear as well. If absolute certainty is
necessary binoculars quickly reach their limits. The contemporary hunter expects more than just the close. They intense expert
game keeping and act properly from an environmental point of view for the future. The MINI-scopes are almost indispensable
for the duties of a modern hunter. The scopes have a simple, short pullout and are encased in a robust rubber armor that is
simultaneously sound absorbing and oil and acid resistant. The high magnification at outstanding light strengths are only a
few of the characteristics that set the OPTOLYTH® scopes apart. The low weight of the lenses and the compact design make
your scope a constant companion, primarily for frequent changes in location. With our Ceralin-plus
Ceralin-Multicoating our objective
lenses get better transmission. The „1/4“ and „3/8“ tripod sockets provide the opportunity to work with tripods of any kind.
MINI 25x70 XS
A newness for a zoom spotting scope - a retractable eyepiece.
The eyepiece quickly and easily disappears into the body of the smallest scope by means of
a simple twist and because of this is better protected. Despite the elaborate and precise
mechanics for this process the operation of it proves to be very easy. Two interlocking curves
make it possible to twist up the eyepiece and at the same time use the swivel for focussing.
With an overall straight length of barely 20 cm they fit into almost any jacket pocket.
MINI 25x70 BGA/WW
At a length of 25 cm it is the second smallest but the lightest MINI scope. Deployable optimally
during mountain pursuits they prove themselves in other deer areas as well. The 25x70 with its 50
meter field of view continues to help you significantly when it is essential to keep track.
MINI 30x80 BGA/WW-S
They have even better twilight performance than the 25x70 despite the greater magnification.
It is easy to survey large distances in the mountains or on the plains. The built-in sun shield
improves viewing comfort when there is backlight and the 80 mm objective lens also captures
even the weakest rays of light at twilight.
MINI 15-45x80 GA
The MINI with the Vario-lens for every purpose. At 15x magnification the variable zoom range
provides for outstanding imaging performance at twilight or for high resolution and trueness
of details at 45x magnification. The largest scope of the MINIs starts in the magnification range
where binoculars stop and because of this they are the perfect complement to add to the equipment.
Flexibility counts here and it is the trump. The focussing wheel on the outside can even be operated
wearing thick gloves in winter.

OPTOLYTH® Fixed Scope
Flexible light giants
Essential for ornithologists, loved by nature watchers
and proved by marksmen. Our scopes are deployed
flexibly in ornithological bird counts such as checking off bird rings and for sports, such as biathlons. You are being offered a
comfortable selection of replacement eyepieces best suited to your visual intentions.
Because of their performance and their ability our scopes, which play along in the highest leagues, are also manufactured
100% in Germany just as our other product groups are. The TBS/TBG scopes are waterproof, protected against tarnishing and
have a non-slip focus setting. A telescopic sun shield makes it easier to observe when there is extreme back light. A rugged,
antireflective, full rubber armor protects the field lens. The scopes can be turned 360 degrees using the support ring and can
be located on a tripod in any position by turning the knurled thumb screw.
TBS 80 GA - TBS 80 GA/HDF
Sitting comfortably in a relaxed posture the observer can enjoy first class image quality using the angled
eyepiece. A pin sharp image can be adjusted using the free-moving sharpness adjustment up to
the borders. The TBS 80 GA/HDF can also be ordered with HDF* lens elements.
TBG 80 GA - TBG 80 GA/HDF
The universally deployable scope in a solid design with straight monocular (TBG). Very well suited
to beginners already and easy to use, they also give the professional excellent help in any situation.
The TBG 80 GA/HDF can also be ordered with HDF* lens elements.
TBS 100 APO/HDF - TBG 100 APO/HDF
These superb scopes have an apo-chromatically corrected lens with 100 millimeter aperture.
Equipped standard with fluoride lenses, moonlight alone is enough for you for effective bright
observation of the objects. The range of application is expanded considerably by the fast focus,
which improves the viewing comfort. From infinity to 6 meters close up you reach your target
in seconds. As the largest, but most of all as the brightest, the OPTOLYTH® brand scope is just
designed for site observation under extremely poor lighting conditions.
* HDF = High Definition Fluorite Glasses
CaF2 crystals for the highest image resolution
This expensive optical material is used for all models in the HDF series in order to achieve exceptional refractive properties
with almost 100% color fastness, which is the non-plus-ultra for ornithological observation.

OPTOLYTH® Compact
Compact design for an extravagant viewing experience
The OPTOLYTH® brand compact scopes make it possible to observe nature from great distances or from very close up. Staying
mobile is what it means today for the experienced user. What would be more disruptive in this situation than a bulky, heavy
scope if you had to follow the „object of your desire“ through impassable terrain. Here as well our comfortable section of
lenses offers you an appropriate solution for every intended observation.
With a close range of 2.8 meters, the modern shape of the rubber body and a field of view up to 54 meters the Compact is
the best equipped for any kind of viewing. Low aperture, pin sharpness in the entire field of view and the greatest trueness of
detail possible play an important role here too. The extremely short design eases the use of the scope immensely.
Compact S 80 - Compact S 80 APO/HD
The angled monocular (S 80) relieves the neck, the shoulders and the head while watching.
A telescopic sun shield in all of the models counteracts glare from unintentional exposure to
light and makes viewing easier even when the solar radiation is strong.
The Compact S80 can also be ordered as Compact S 80 APO/HD with HDF*-lens elements.
Compact G80 - Compact G 80 APO/HD
Sometimes the expert, sophisticated hunter also prefers the Compact over a tractable
spotting scope. With the straight view (G 80), the short design, water proofed and a zoomeyepiece the spotting scope is second to none. Variable magnification in the twilight guarantees
an unclouded view.
The Compact G80 can also be ordered as Compact G 80 APO/HD with HDF*-lens elements.

OPTOLYTH® EYEPIECES
The right magnification for every distance
All purpose, for every eye and for every magnification wish. The various
exchangeable eyepieces facilitate the individual customization of the spotting
scope to the particular assignment. The eyepieces can be switched on the spotting scopes quickly and
without a problem.
Eyepiece 20x WW
For counting birds on large expanses of water or for determining the size of an entire flock the 20x WW eyepiece
is the most appropriate. As a result of the computer calculated wide-angle-optics (WW) a 54 meter field of
view is possible and provides you with the necessary overview. It is even possible to use the scope for quick
observations without a tripod interim at 20x magnification, defined setting is adequate.
Eyepiece 30x WW
This eyepiece is the best compromise between magnification and twilight performance. Still essential for
surveying the local bird varieties. There is also conclusive information about details such as beak shape or
plumage and because of this it is universally deployable. The WW-eyepiece also provides you with a considerable
38 meter field of view here.
Eyepiece 70x WW
The total professional, who still has to know the smallest details, also reaches for this exotic magnification. This,
however, demands advanced handling of scope and tripod, which you need badly in this situation. The eyepiece
frequently also appeals in the area of astronomy, where it is used for a quick overview. Please note that this
eyepiece was created explicitly for our 80 mm scope.
Zoom-eyepiece 20-60x (80 mm) / 30-60x (100 mm)
You stay versatile in every situation with the Zoom-eyepiece from OPTOLYTH®. With a magnification
from 20-60x the user is given the best accuracy in detail at the maximum resolution. Whether for
the fast overview or the smallest difference it adapts to your field of activity individually. The most
frequently used eyepiece of the OPTOLYTH® brand produces a different initial magnification due to
the different focal lengths of the 80 mm and 100 mm scopes.

OPTOLYTH® EYEPIECES
Photographic purpose
As an additional optical component we are offering you our camera attachment.
This converts your fixed scope into a first class tele-lens with focal lengths of 850 mm
(field lens-Ø 80 mm) or 1200 mm (field lens-Ø 100 mm). In place of the eyepiece the
camera attachment is screwed onto the fixed scope and every digital
or standard mirror reflex camera can be mounted using one of our TS
adapters to the camera attachment. This opens up entirely new worlds
for you when it involves photographing the shyest animals or the
capturing of the smallest details at a long distance.

Carry cases and multi-purpose bags
The padded bags give your glasses the
necessary protection in wind and weather. The heavy duty
and tear proof Cordura fabric, which is water repellent and
impervious to dust is added seamlessly to the highly qualitative palette of products of the OPTOLYTH® brand.
OPTOLYTH® Cordura bags
The noble looking multi-purpose bags made from Cordura give superior protection to their
OPTOLYTH® equipment.
The spotting scope bag was also provided with lens holders and a storage pocket. These products
also fit into our “Made in Germany” mission statement. The well-known company Niggeloh GmbH in
Radevormwald manufacturers the water repellent, heavy duty multi-purpose bags under our name.
OPTOLYTH® multipurpose bags
Bags designed extra for the OPTOLYTH® spotting scopes simultaneously allow for the best
protection possible and viewing that is convenient for the operator. By removing the
various caps you can also put your spotting scope in the bag. Assembly onto a
tripod remains just as feasible as the focussing or the magnification. The
additional protection of the lens is of particular mention for the zoom
spotting scopes. The lens side of the bag was given additional reinforcement
for each group of products. Our multi-purpose bags are also manufactured by the
company Niggeloh GmbH.

Technical terminology about binoculars and spotting scopes
Argon
By filling binoculars with argon you prevent fogging of the
optics inside when there is a change in temperature.
Eyepiece for people who wear glasses
Binoculars that are intended for people who wear glasses
have a large exit pupil average distance. People who wear
glasses are able to use the optimum field of view by twisting
up or lowering the swivel eye cups.
Roof-prism
A set of prisms made from roof prisms allows for an especially
thin design. The optical and fine mechanical production
precision is higher than for a porro binocular of the same
quality.
Diopter compensation
The balancing of the various visual acuities of the eyes using
adjustment of the eyepiece.
Binocular quality
The performance of a binocular is made up of magnification,
the aperture of the objective lens, the image quality, size,
weight, stability and the quality of the processing and the
materials. Therefore, every purchaser should select the
model - that matches their needs – either one of the shorter
and wider built Porro prism binoculars or one of the thinner
and longer built roof prism binoculars. Since the quality of
every binocular only shows under poor lighting conditions,
with long constant observation, extreme temperatures and
loads, the selection of binoculars remains a matter of trust
between the manufacturer and the user.
Focussing
The focussing of the field lenses onto the object being
observed.
Geometric light strengths / twilight factor
While the geometric light strength is a measure for the
brightness effect, with which the object being observed is
seen in the telescope, the twilight factor is a measure for details
still recognizable in the twilight. These are only numerical
values however, which result from the magnification and
objective lens aperture ratio. In practice these values are of
less importance.
HDF-equipment
CaF2 crystals for the highest image resolution
This expensive optical material is used for all models in
the HDF series in order to achieve exceptional refractive
properties with almost 100% color fastness, which is the
non-plus-ultra for ornithological observation.
Savage
Only lenses inside of the binoculars are moved for the internal
focussing in order to focus on the object. These binoculars are
generally tightly sealed. Penetration of dust, air or humidity
is avoided.
Adjustment
The clean assembly of both sides of the binocular is a
prerequisite for laid back viewing. It is important in the
process that these run in absolute parallel otherwise double
images or blurred edges can quickly emerge. Using the
adjustment the lens is brought precisely into the light path
and both sides have the same magnification.
Central focussing device
The central focussing device of binoculars makes it possible
to sharply adjust both sides of the binocular at the same time.
If the visibility is uneven it is possible to carry out dioptric
compensation independently of focussing.
Field lens
The lenses allocated for the observation of the object. An
important performance feature of binoculars. The bigger the
field lens the brighter the image. Optical equipment with a
big field lens is preferably used at twilight.
Eyepiece
The system of lenses on the eye side with different
magnifications.
Phase correction
A very expensive coating on a roof prism. This coating
lessens the stray light and is necessary for outstanding image
quality.
Porro-Prism
Binoculars with Porro prisms are generally engineered more
broadly than comparable roof prism models, but not for
long. Porro classes offer a somewhat more fake image at
short observation distances because the lenses lie further
apart from one another. This type of binoculars is also well
liked due to the very good depth of field.
Pupils (EP/AP)
The entrance pupil (EP) is the free working lens aperture
through which the image/light enters the binoculars. The
exit pupil (AP) is the aperture of the pool of light that exits
the eyepiece. The exit pupil depends on the entry pupil as a
result of magnification.
Field of view
The value indicates the aperture of an image section 1,000
meters away. Most users describe a large field of view as
pleasant because the “blur” has less influence on the image.
Optical equipment with the label WW (wide angle) has a
particularly large field of view.
Variable lenses
A variable telescope allows the high variable adjustment of
different magnifications.
Magnification
The magnification of a lens is one of the most important
terms, since the magnification is directly linked with the use
of the optical equipment. The magnification specified (for
example, 6x) indicates that the distance to the object being
observed is reduced by this factor, meaning that an object
60 meters away appears exactly the same size as if observed
with the naked eye at a distance of 10 meters. However, you
should note that the image becomes darker with higher
magnification.
Coating
All lenses are coated with an anti-reflective layer. This is
necessary otherwise reflections occur on every glass-airsurface of the equipment, which results in a 4% light loss.
To some extent the modern optical equipment has a large
number of glass-air-surfaces. The loss of light per glass-airsurface is reduced to 0.5% by means of this thin layer. Antireflective coating is standard for high quality long range
lenses.

The history of OPTOLYTH®
Establishment in 1856 by J.E. Sill in Nuernberg. (continuation of operation by sister
Maria Roth, born Sill and her family up to Walter Roth until 2004).
The production began in Schwabenmühle and in 1860 was relocated to Riesenschritt
20. In 1945 the operation resettled in Oed/Weigendorf. The production was housed
with lenses for the Nuernberg toy industry. Then followed simple Galileo binoculars,
kaleidoscope and telescope.
After 1945 the production of microfilm reading glasses and binoculars has been
launched in Oed.
Starting in 1965 top-quality prism-binoculars and spotting scopes were produced
under the name OPTOLYTH® and distributed worldwide. With the manufacture of the
ROYAL roof prism glasses and of zoom spotting scopes the firm made a good name for
itself and built up a large customer base.
In 2004 Optolyth Optik was acquired by Sill Optics. The production was shifted to
Wendelstein/Nuernberg where the product palette continued to be produced with the
newest machinery.
In 2008 the merging of both companies by the Managing Partner Berndt Zingrege,
who therewith merged both companies again in the original Sill Optics.
There is now modern production in Wendelstein with the newest CNC machines
for the production of the lenses as well as prototype manufacturing with in-house
development available.
In this way it is ensured that the product name OPTOLYTH® continues to stand for a
product quality “Made in Germany”.
