The new, highly specified Helios MISTRAL WP6 roof prism range comprises ten models over 32mm, 42mm and 50mm objective lens apertures. They are extremely competent instruments for both birdwatching & general observing, and represent truly amazing value. They feature a very stylish, ergonomic, modern top hinge design covered in sleek green rubber armouring. The body is constructed from lightweight but robust polycarbonate. All models feature high-index, silver-coated BaK-4 prisms and fully multi-coated optics which provide excellent optical performance. Images delivered are crisp and sharp, with very good resolution, brightness and depth of field, whilst maintaining colours to a natural level. Near focus capability of all models is 2.5m or less. Waterproof (30 minutes at 1M depth) and nitrogen filled for clear, fog-free operation. Twist-up, 3–position eyecups with metal sub-structure. Suitable for spectacle wearers. Knurled metal, easy-grip 2-turn focusing knob. Integral tripod bush. Supplied with neck strap, eyepiece rainguard, objective lens caps and soft case.
NOTE: The premium 8x42ED, 10x42ED & 10x50ED models incorporate exotic Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass in their construction for enhanced colour fidelity and also have the additional benefit of phase-coated prisms for enhanced light transmission and image contrast.
