Docter ED Binoculars
Docter ED Binoculars
Docter ED Binoculars comes in 2 Lightweight 8x42 & 10x42 configurations and a Low-Light 8x56 configuration. These binoculars are perfect for hunting, bird watching and other wildlife observations and are built using the best materials and optics.
The ED series of binoculars feature a new, functional design. An open hinge connects the two halves of the body creating a "through grip" which makes it possible to comfortably hold the binoculars with one hand and focus them at the same time.
The high-quality ED optical system guarantees faithful rendering of the original colors. The use of special ED lenses significantly reduces color dispersion. ED stands for "Extra-low Dispersion Glass", which is used to manufacture special lenses that are indispensable for sharply defined correction of longitudinal chromatic aberration. Combined with the DOCTER multitop broadband coating, this ensures a true–to–detail and high-contrast image.
The time-tested "twist up" eyepieces are comfortable for all users, whether they wear eyeglasses or not. The click-stop eyepieces can be adjusted to individual binocular-eye distances for even more user convenience. Thanks to the large exit pupil focal length, eyeglass wearers can see the entire field of view with no restrictions.
Docter ED binoculars have other protective features, such as waterproof and fog-proof ability due to nitrogen gas filling and tight seals. You can also submerge them to a water depth of 1 meter since they are impervious to water dust and other particles.
The DOCTER 8x56 ED/OH, offers the additional benefits of a larger objective lens allowing use in very low light conditions. Additionally all control elements equipped with a slip-proof armouring and is dimensioned in order to allow operation wearing gloves as well. The DOCTERmultitop broadband coating on all glass-air interfaces turns this binocular into an ideal companion for use until late at night. The DOCTERmulticlean coating on the objective and eyepiece lenses lets water drip off and prevents dust and dirt particles from depositing.

Understanding The Numbers
Scopes and Binoculars are specified by a combination of numbers such as 8×42 or 8×56, the first number indicates the level of Magnification (how close the subject appears to be; 4 times closer, 6 times closer, 8 times closer, etc.) while the second number is the size of the Objective Lens in millimetres. The size of the objective lens determines how much light the instrument takes in. A higher number indicates a larger lens capable of taking in more light which results in a brighter image and improved viewing experience.
