Celestron’s award-winning Nature DX binoculars get a major upgrade with the addition of ED objective lenses. Nature DX ED’s optical performance rivals that of more expensive binoculars, at a price to fit your budget. This versatile, all-around binocular is a great choice for the trail, the stadium, the arena, or just about anywhere you want a close-up view of the action without sacrificing brightness or detail. The Celestron Nature DX ED 8x42 Binoculars are a great companion for nature observation and bird watching, or any field work, with ED glass that helps you spot the subtlest field markings. Their close focus of just 6.5 feet makes them extra convenient for bird, insect, and flower observations.
Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass virtually eliminates chromatic aberration, also known as color fringing, a visual defect common in binoculars. Celestron Nature DX ED 8x42 Binoculars deliver razor sharp images, even at the edges of the field of view. ED glass is also known for producing images with outstanding, true-to-life color. Not all ED glass is created equal. Celestron’s high quality ED glass delivers visibly brighter, sharper images compared to non-ED binoculars. Using these binos, you will see the difference which becomes especially apparent in low light conditions, such as at dawn or dusk.
Nature DX ED features fully multi-coated optics. A binocular can be considered “fully multi-coated” when all air-to-glass surfaces are coated with multiple layers of anti-reflectivity coatings so that the maximum amount of light is transmitted from the subject to the eye. The prisms inside Nature DX ED are made of high quality BaK-4 glass with phase coatings applied so that more light is reflected off their internal faces and will be transmitted. The fully multi-coated lenses and BaK-4 prisms maximize light transmission and quality for remarkably bright, highly detailed images. The ED objective lenses further enhance these features, especially in low light conditions.
A durable rubber armored, polycarbonate housing protects your Nature DX ED binoculars from damage without weighing you down. Viewing through Nature DX ED is comfortable for both eyeglass wearers and non-eyeglass wearers, thanks to the durable twist-up eyecups. Twist through multiple click stops to find the position that works best for you.
These binoculars are fully waterproof and filled with dry nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging of lenses. Nature DX ED can stand up to even the toughest outdoor conditions. Carry your Nature ED on the comfortable included strap. They are also tripod-adaptable, so you can mount it on any standard photographic tripod for extended viewing or digiscoping (photography through the eyepiece). The tripod adapter for the binos is sold separately. The binocular also includes a protective padded nylon case for storage and transportation.
