The new APM 40 x 110 MS ED Binoculars are the latest in the APM Magnesium Series and will soon be available, according to Markus Ludes with APM Telescopes. Equipped with an impressively sharp wide-angle eyepiece, user will easily find distant galaxies, the Moon, planets and star clusters.
As Markus Ludes notes, “The new top optics (FCD1 from Hoya Japan) guarantee a true-to-life color rendition. The use of special ED objectives significantly reduces color dispersion. ED stands for ‘Extra-low Dispersion Glass’ and describes special lenses that are essential for the significant correction of the color aberration. The combination with APM broadband coating generates the highest optical performance in color reproduction and image quality.”
All APM Magnesium Series binoculars bodies are constructed with lightweight Magnesium. Not only is Magnesium the lightest of the metal elements, it is also extremely strong and is resistant to corrosion. The body of each binocular is fitted with a rubber armor, which serves to both protect it from damage while also giving providing a lightweight, slip-resistant grip. You can easily focus your binoculars by adjusting each eyepiece individually, perfectly matching your own vision.
The new APM 40 x 110 MS ED Binoculars join the APM 8 x 56 and 6×30 MS ED Binoculars which were recently introduced.
The hallmark of the APM Magnesium Series are their weatherproof and waterproof design, offering ultimate performance. But of course, waterproof and weatherproof Magnesium construction matters little if not matched to optics of equal quality, and here APM’s MS Binos shine, featuring a high-specification BAK-4 Porro-prism optical system, along with ED objective lenses.
The APM Magnesium Series binocular line is designed to offer an impressive wide field view. The compact, sturdy and easy-to-use design makes these binoculars the ideal field companion for daytime and nighttime use. The fully coated FMC optics and the solid mechanics allow a good and true color image reproduction.
These instruments are designed specifically for outdoor use – the entire line features waterproof construction and are fully nitrogen purged for use in the rain or left unprotected on a tripod during showers without the worry of water infiltration. In addition to waterproofing, the binoculars are protected with durable natural rubber covering.
