ZEISS Terra ED Compact 8x32 Binoculars (Black/Grey)

ZEISS Terra ED Compact 8x32 Binoculars (Black/Grey)

The grey 2017 edition of ZEISS Optics' 8x32 Terra ED Binoculars features a redesigned ergonomic chassis that makes holding them more comfortable, especially during long glassing sessions. Optically, they retain the exceptional elements that are the hallmarks of the Terra ED, including compact Schmidt-Pechan roof prisms, SCHOTT extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, and proprietary multi-coatings. These complementary technologies and elements work together to produce an immersive observational experience that presents clear and bright views despite the relatively small objectives, with accurate colour representation and virtually zero distortion across the entire wide field of view.

The comfortable ergonomic chassis is made of a fibreglass-reinforced polycarbonate to help reduce weight without sacrificing strength and while adding impact and temperature resistance. Being resistant to temperature changes not only ensures that the housing will remain at a constant temperature even in cold and wet conditions but ensures it will not experience the expansion and contraction common in metal chassis that can cause the optical elements to move out of alignment over time and hinder the binoculars' ability to achieve sharp focus. The chassis is covered in grey rubber armour that helps to protect it from drops and impacts and provides a slip-resistant grip.

32mm objective lenses

Roof prism optical path

The compact Schmidt-Pechan prism design corrects the view while allowing for thinner optical tubes versus the more common Abbe-Koenig design

SCHOTT ED glass elements reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations to produce views with true colour rendition without halos, diffraction, or distortion across the entire field of view

ZEISS proprietary hydrophobic multicoated optics shed dust, dirt, and oils while improving light transmission, colour rendition, sharpness, and contrast

Short 5.25-foot close-focus distance

Wide 61° apparent angle of view

442-foot field of view at 1000 yards
