8x56 binoculars by DDoptics
The 8 stands for the magnification of the binoculars and the 56 for the diameter in millimeters of the lens. 8x56 binoculars are the classic binoculars for nighttime and hunting use.
DDoptics has specialized in roof prisms for 8x56 binoculars and has two basic types of 8x56 binoculars. Binoculars with Abbe-König prisms and binoculars with Schmidt-Pechan prisms.
Pirschler 8x56 binocular
The Pirschler 8x56 binoculars have been equipped with large Abbe-König prisms and thus optimized for maximum performance at night. These prisms are characterized by a very low loss.
The lens elements of the Pirschler 8x56 binoculars are coated with DDlucid, which avoids annoying reflections and lets more light through for bright and lifelike images.
In addition, the Pirschler 8x56 binoculars were designed with an open bridge to allow for an improved grip.
Light transmission and exit pupil
When choosing your 8x56 binoculars, in addition to the size, qualitative differences in the optical coating, the types of glass used, the processing and the choice of prisms for the light transmission (effective light output) of an 8x56 binocular are decisive.
Higher-quality 8x56 binoculars by DDoptics are equipped with larger and brighter Abbe-König roof prisms, while the slightly weaker Schmidt-Pechan inverted prisms are often used in cheaper binoculars.
The design of 8x56 binoculars results in an exit pupil with a diameter of 7 mm. This roughly corresponds to the ability of the human eye to open at night or at dusk. For this reason, the 8x56 binoculars are considered the best binoculars for the night.
Nighteagle Ergo binocular 8x56
The 8x56 binoculars by the Nighteagle Ergo series were equipped with Schmidt-Pechan prisms and optimized for the smallest possible design, height, width and light weight.
Despite the low weight and the moderate price, the 8x56 binoculars impress with clear image brightness and brilliance as it gets darker.
The lenses of the Ergo binoculars are coated with HDX-FMX and offer enormous performance as well as a natural and colour-true visual impression.
Nighteagle ERGO DX 8x56 binocular
The new 8x56 Nighteagle ERGO DX binoculars with a closed bridge are now even lighter and smaller thanks to their magnesium housing. Thanks to the 56 lens, the exit pupil of 7 mm and the good FMC coating of the newly used CT glass, the night glass is ideal for moonlight and backlight.
Instead of large Abbe-König prisms, a dielectric mirror was applied to the prisms, which provides additional brightening and produces high-contrast and colorful images.
The new ERGO DX 8x56 binoculars also impress with images free of color fringes and fascinating image sharpness right up to the outer edge with razor-sharp edges.
