  • 10x Magnification: With a 10x magnification, these binoculars offer a closer look at distant scenes, making them ideal for wildlife observation, sports events, and other situations where clear details matter. This level of magnification ensures a versatile and immersive viewing experience across various outdoor activities.
  • 42mm Objective Lenses: Featuring 42mm objective lenses, these binoculars gather more light, resulting in brighter and well-defined images, even in dim lighting conditions. This increased light intake enhances the overall viewing experience, making the binoculars suitable for various outdoor activities.
  • ED Glass Objective Lens: The incorporation of extra-low dispersion glass into the objective lens components of the ARTES J binoculars delivers remarkably sharp images devoid of chromatic aberration. This advanced glass technology ensures that users experience high-resolution and color-accurate views, especially when observing subjects with varying colors and contrasts.
  • Flat Multi-Coatings: The lens surfaces feature flat multi-coatings that ensure uniform and high light transmission across the entire visible light spectrum. This attribute significantly contributes to achieving images of exceptional clarity and contrast. The flat multi-coatings enhance the optical performance of the binoculars, ensuring consistent image quality in diverse lighting conditions.
  • High Reflectivity Coatings: Utilizing advanced dielectric coatings, the binoculars attain exceptional reflectivity levels on the prisms, enhancing overall optical performance. These high reflectivity coatings contribute to brighter and clearer images, making the binoculars effective in low-light conditions and ensuring a more satisfying viewing experience.
  • Phase Coated Prisms: Phase coatings rectify the phase shift occurring at the edge of roof prisms through reflection. This process enhances image contrast and levels, resulting in incredibly bright and sharp images with maximum contrast. The phase-coated prisms contribute to the binoculars' ability to deliver high-quality and detailed images, especially in challenging lighting situations.
  • Oil-Repellent Coatings: Protective oil-repellent coatings safeguard the external lens surfaces from dirt. These coatings facilitate easy cleaning in cases where the lens surfaces are smudged with fingerprints or dust particles. The oil-repellent coatings ensure that the binoculars maintain optimal performance by keeping the lenses clean and clear during outdoor use.
  • Ergonomic Open Hinge Design: The binocular body features an open hinge design that improves grip stability. The bridge connecting the two optical barrels is designed to fit comfortably in various hands, minimizing shake during usage. 
  • Weatherproof Construction: The binoculars are nitrogen-purged and waterproof, allowing for dependable use in all weather conditions. The weatherproof construction ensures that the binoculars can withstand varying environmental conditions, making them reliable companions for outdoor enthusiasts and nature observers.
  • Tripod Adaptability: The ARTES J binoculars can be effortlessly mounted on a camera tripod using the separately available Tripod Adapter MH or Stay On case, enhancing versatility in observation scenarios. Tripod adaptability enhances stability for extended viewing and steady image capture, particularly at higher magnifications.
  • Included Accessories: The package comes with a custom carrying case for easy portability and a neck strap for added convenience during transportation. Moreover, users benefit from a limited 1-2 year warranty, ensuring assurance and support for their astronomical endeavors.
