A good pair of binoculars is a useful companion during some of life’s most memorable excursions. Whether you are white water rafting at the Grand Canyon, sailing up the California coast, or scanning for celestial jewels from a dark sky site in Colorado, you’ll be happy you remembered to pack your binoculars, especially if you’ve chosen a pair that will serve you well in a wide variety of situations.
When Lunt Engineering decided to offer a line of binoculars to our customers, we knew we had to “go big or go home”. We had several requirements that that had to be satisfied in order to call them Lunt Engineering Binoculars:
Introducing Lunt Engineering Magnesium Series Binoculars
By George, I think we’ve got it! Lunt Engineering is proud to offer four binocular models in the Magnesium Series line, starting with a classic 7 x 50 and finishing up with a high-power 16 x 70 model, for long range views of land and sky.
All of the Lunt Engineering Magnesium Series Binoculars offer superb, fully multi-coated optics, an armor-coated magnesium body for lightweight yet rugged performance, and generous eye relief. They are waterproof and fogproof, with a rating of IPX-7, which means LE Magnesium binoculars are tested to withstand water damage for up to 30 minutes in three feet of water. Magnesium binoculars come with a carry case and a tripod adapter, allowing you to quickly and easily attach your Magnesium binoculars to any standard camera tripod for hands-free viewing.
Follow the links below to read more about each of the Lunt Engineering Magnesium Series Binoculars:
LE 7 X 50 Magnesium Series Binoculars: The perfect anytime, anywhere binocular! There is a reason why 7 X 50 binoculars have been around so long. Their large 50 mm optics offer up bright views in low light conditions, and at 7X magnification, 7X50 binoculars are easy to hand-hold for long periods of time. Great for sporting events, birding, nature observations, boating, astronomy, and pretty much anything else you can think of.
LE 10 X 50 Magnesium Series Binoculars: This model is for those who prefer a bit more magnification. For manny people, 10X is the highest magnification they can hand-hold and still get shake-free views. With bright 50mm optics, the Lunt Engineering 10 X 50 binoculars will provide bright views in most lighting conditions
LE 11 X 70 Magnesium Series Binoculars: If you want the light-gathering of a telescope with the flexibility and portability that binoculars offer, check out the Lunt 11X70’s. With an exit pupil of 6.4 mm, these giant binoculars provide super-bright images under low light conditions, so they are perfect for astronomy and nature watching during the magic hours of dusk and dawn. At 11X, you can still hand-hold these binoculars, but for an extended viewing session, adding a tripod to the mix will do wonders.
LE 16 x 70 Magnesium Series Binoculars: Higher magnifications with giant optics, that’s the name of the game here. Users with steady hands can use 16X binoculars without a tripod for limited observing, but these high power binoculars do their best work on your favorite tripod. Just like all the Magnesium Series binoculars, you needn’t worry about getting caught in the rain or a dewy night, either. Nitrogen-purged, waterproof, fogproof, armor-coated…all the protection is there just in case you need it.
