Helios 2x40 Star Field Binocular

The Helios 2x40 Star Field Binocular offers a unique and immersive viewing experience for astronomy enthusiasts. Here are its key features and specifications:

  • Optical Design: Based on a modified Galilean optical system, the binocular provides a super-wide field of view with low 2x magnification. This design bridges the gap between naked-eye astronomy and traditional binocular astronomy.

  • Enhanced Viewing Experience: With its wide field of view and low magnification, the binocular enhances the viewing experience by revealing more stars than the naked eye alone. It offers about four times the light-gathering ability of the naked eye, making it ideal for viewing under clear dark skies.

  • Suitable Applications: The binocular is perfect for viewing the Milky Way, open star clusters, constellations, comets, and meteors. It's also suitable for observing bright galaxies and nebulae.

  • Optical Quality: The optics are fully multi-coated, ensuring high contrast and sharpness. The large eye lenses provide comfortable viewing, and the images delivered are upright and fully corrected.

  • Construction: The binocular features a robustly constructed CNC machined aluminum body, ensuring durability and longevity. It's also suitable for use as theatre/opera glasses.

  • Accessories: It comes with a neck strap and a semi-hard zipped case for convenient storage and transportation.
