Choosing your Binocular
Specification Example: 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 40yds distant
appears 5yds away. ‘42’ is the diameter of the objective lens (the large end) in mm through
which light enters the binocular.
Z or B denote porro prism which usually offer better optical performance for your money
compared to roof prism D, which are more compact. The popularity of roof prism binoculars
is a result of this system being favored in the development of instruments with user oriented
features such as waterproofing, long eye relief and close focus. B denoted on roof prism
binoculars including Opticron BGA = full field of view for spectacle wearers. GA = rubber
armoring and W or WA = wide angle. Center focus CF, is more popular than individual
eyepiece focusing IF 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 the need for focusing adjustment at distances over 50yds.
What magnification? The higher
the magnification relative to the
objective lens size, the lower the
brightness and the shallower the
depth of focus (distance in focus at
a single focus setting.) For general
observation choose 7x or 8x. If you
want 10x or more try them first as
magnification amplifies hand-shake
affecting image stability.

Naked eye
8x
10x
What objective lens size? The amount of light entering a binocular is 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 called 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 your iris dilates 2-3mm in bright sunlight, up to 6-7mm in
twilight. With an EPD of 5-6mm 7/8x42’s and 10x50’s will outperform 8x32’s and 10x42’s but are larger
and heavier for their given magnification.
The field of view of a binocular is dependent
on the optical design and is expressed as either
the width of panoramic view in feet from a
distance of 1000yds or in degrees where 1° is
approximately 52ft.
Real field

Wearing glasses Many binoculars provide the
full field of view when wearing glasses by
either turning/pushing the retractable eyecups
to the ‘down’ position or folding down the
400yds
rubber eyecups. Binoculars with a stated eye
relief of 15mm or more deliver the full field of view for most spectacle wearers.

Weight For most people, small, lightweight binoculars will be used much more than large heavy ones
which tend to be left at home or in the car.
Oasis is a 64 layer coating process applied to the reflective surface of each roof prism. It
delivers +99% light transmission over a broader spectrum at the reflective face compared
to Al or Ag coatings and results in a measurable increase in brightness and 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.

Choosing your Fieldscope
Prismatic telescopes are often called spottingscopes or fieldscopes and follow the basic
design of a large monocular. Opticron fieldscopes come in ‘body only’ format allowing you
to choose an eyepiece or eyepieces to suit your hobby and budget.
Eyepieces are described according to their magnification when fitted to a particular
spottingscope and whether they are wide-angle e.g. 20xWW or zoom e.g. 20-60x. A 20x
eyepiece makes an object appear 1/20th its actual distance compared to your naked eye. Using
this rule an object 500yds distant appears 25yds away at 20x, 16.7yds at 30x and 8yds at 60x.
What magnification/objective lens
size? Spottingscopes are most often
used for high magnification daylight
observation at distance. In normal
daylight when your pupil is dilated
2-3mm, a 66mm fieldscope will
deliver optimum performance, (the
balance between magnification and
Naked eye
20x
30x
image brightness) between 22x and
35x, i.e. when the exit pupil diameter of the fieldscope equals that of your iris. In low light
when your pupil dilates 5-7mm, optimum performance can only be achieved by lowering the
magnification or increasing the size of the objective lens.
The higher the magnification, the greater amount of image and color distortion. These
effects can be reduced by using ED or Fluorite lenses in the objective system but run at a
premium over standard optical glass lenses.
40
Field of view is usually expressed as the width in meters of the image when viewing
at a distance of 1000yds and is directly related to the magnification. The higher the
magnification, the smaller the field of view. The objective lens, irrespective of diameter has
no influence over the field of view.
Light transmission One way to assess the brightness of a fieldscope and eyepiece is to calculate the
exit pupil diameter in the same way as with a binocular and make a trade-off between brightness and
magnification desired. For general daytime terrestrial observation good compromise magnifications are
18-25x(50mm), 20-30x(60mm), 25-35x(66mm) and 25-40x(80mm).
Resolution As a general rule a good spottingscope can resolve (separate) two black dots 1.5mm distance
apart on a white surface, in bright daylight at a distance of 50yds.
Which Eyepiece? The vast majority of spottingscopes are used with zoom eyepieces as they offer the
greatest flexibility for viewing at different distances in different light conditions. We also offer you a
wide range of eyepieces for specialized applications and there is no substitute for side by side testing if
you have the opportunity to do so.
Wearing Glasses Eye relief is the distance between the eye lens and the point where your pupil is
positioned to obtain full field of view and varies slightly from eyepiece to eyepiece. In some cases the
eye relief may be shorter than you need to obtain the full field of view. Almost all Opticron eyepieces
offer the full field of view for most people who choose to use them with their glasses on.
Straight or 45° angled? Straight scopes are easier to use following fast moving objects, using the
instrument from the confined spaces of a hide/blind or vehicle, or when hand-holding. Advantages of
45° angled spottingscopes are that your back, shoulders and neck are more relaxed when viewing and
your tripod can be set lower for increased stability. Angled scopes allow people of different heights to
view simultaneously without having to make any adjustment to the height of the tripod.
Tripods A suitable tripod will be on average about the same weight as the fieldscope it is supporting.
If you are thinking of walking any distance with your equipment make sure to test the complete kit
before buying.

HR 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.
Delivering the highest resolution figures in the Opticron range, each model contains a high
definition 5 element apochromat objective lens with 2 individual ED elements. In addition
to enhancing resolution, this second element delivers significant reductions in chromatic
aberration 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.
42
Mechanically HR ED fieldscopes feature a magnesium alloy
body fitted with a +/- 90° rotating tripod sleeve. Fully
nitrogen gas filled waterproof and hermetically sealed against
penetration from dust and moisture, the models are protected
in durable textured rubber armor.
HR 66 GA ED shown with SDL v2 18-54x
Other features include a centrally positioned focus wheel for
optimum accessibility, retractable lens hood (sunshade) and
integrated rubber objective lens cover.
Models supplied with a comprehensive no fault warranty.

MM3 GA ED Travelscopes
The MM3 GA ED series is the latest evolution of the popular travelscope concept pioneered
by Opticron 20 years ago with the original Mighty Midget. Combining all the things that
have made Opticron travelscopes the #1 choice for so many wildlife observers over the years,
the MM3 50 & 60 GA ED have been designed and engineered to deliver the company’s
maxim of “smaller, lighter, brighter, sharper” to a new generation of spottingscope users.
Constructed from polycarbonate and lightweight alloys, the super-compact optical system
creates a body only 8” long (50mm) and 10” long (60mm). At 21oz(1) (50mm) / 26oz(1) (60mm)
an MM3 GA ED weighs around the same as pair of 42mm binoculars and can be used
without a support for crystal clear flat field observation at magnifications below 20x. Unlike
binoculars, an MM3 GA ED continues to deliver stunning clarity and definition up to 36x
(50mm) and 45x (60mm). Compatibility with the full range of HDF and SDL eyepieces means
existing fieldscope owners can use their eyepieces with a new MM3 body.
Fully rain and dust proof and protected against knocks and bumps with full-body rubber
covering, the MM3 GA ED is available
in straight-through and 45°
angled bodies to suit different
applications.

Telephotography & Digiscoping
Telephotography is easier than ever to enjoy
using Opticron spottingscopes in combination
with a wide range of imaging devices. If you are
thinking about taking photos and video through
your fieldscope we currently offer the following
options;
a. Telephotography with an SLR, DSLR or
compact system camera
b. Digiscoping with a suitable compact digital
camera or camcorder
c. Phonescoping with a suitable smartphone
Telephotography with SLR, DSLR and Compact
System Cameras
In these systems the
fieldscope substitutes for
the camera lens and is
coupled to the camera
body using either a
telephotoadapter or an
eyepiece & photoadapter
combination. T-mounts, available for most
makes of SLR and CSC’s are needed to connect
the assembly to the camera body.
54
Digiscoping with Compact Digital Cameras,
Camcorders
A popular option when suitable cameras were
readily available to buy and build mounts for,
compact cameras are more flexible alternative
to DSLR’s or CSc’s in that the user can vary
the magnification to better frame the shot. In
these systems a suitable device is coupled to the
fieldscope eyepiece using a photoadapter or
hand held up against the viewing eyepiece. The
best cameras have a zoom of 5x or less and a
lens diameter of 20mm or under.
UDCA
The UDCA is a specially
designed mount that
fixes directly to your
fieldscope eyepiece. The
camera is fixed onto
the UDCA and can be
adjusted in three planes
to enable correct positioning with respect to the
eyepiece.
Universal Smartphone Mount (USM)
The USM is a simple and flexible way to connect
your smartphone to selected Opticron SDL, HDF
and HR spottingscope eyepieces and take high
magnification photos and video. The mount
comprises a plate with adjustable clamps to hold
your smartphone securely and a push fit adapter
to connect your eyepiece.
Photoadapters for Smartphones
Opticron smartphone photoadapters are a
convenient and inexpensive way of attaching
your smartphone to your fieldscope eyepiece
and take high magnification photos and video.
Our range of easy-to-use slide and push
smartphone
photoadapters are
designed to work with
a particular phone and
individual eyepiece so
the phone is secure and
in the optimum position
to start taking photos in
just a few seconds.
For information on which phones and eyepieces
are supported please visit www.opticronusa.com
Things to know
Spottingscopes are designed for use with
viewing eyepieces ranging from 12x-60x
magnification. Using a fieldscope fitted with a
20x eyepiece and a device with an optical zoom
of 0.6x-5x, you can photograph or video at
magnifications between 12x-100x.
These high magnifications are great for getting
close up images or video at distance, but the
amount of light entering the device combined
with the narrow field of view and relatively
shallow depth of focus will affect image quality
as well as your ability to successfully frame a
shot or sequence. In addition and depending
on the device, it is sometimes difficult for
the eyepiece to project a large enough
diameter path of light into the image sensor.
This condition, a circular image within the
rectangular image frame is called vignetting and
is reduced by increasing the zoom setting on the
device.
Which Eyepieces?
Choose a wide angle or zoom eyepiece set at
minimum magnification. The following eyepieces
provide the best overall images with a wide
range of different devices; 40810 HDF T, 40936
SDLv2 zoom and 40862 HDF T zoom
