Ditch those dainty little opera glasses, because the cure for your binocular envy has arrived. The Oberwerk 20×80mm binoculars are 4.5 pounds of pure Teutonic magnifying power, perfect for scoping out the stars in the night sky from your backyard, or the stars of screen and song from their backyards. Not that we endorse celebrity stalking, mind you, but once the package arrives at your place, it’s none of our business what you do with it.
A low-reflection broadband multicoating multicoats every air-to-glass surface – yes, o ye of little faith, including the BAK4 prisms. This means you won’t be losing your precious light to reflection and scattering, if that bothers you. Oberwerk’s new “slow-focus” provides precise, unwavering focus control, essential when you’re crouching in the shrubbery watching your favorite starlet entertaining her suitor. And it sports all the frills that make binocular nerds tremble at the mention of Oberwerk’s name: rubber-armored metal body, Fully Broadband Mulit-Coated lenses, fold-down eyecups, a hard case – the works. The folks at Oberwerk even do a full Q/C testing and alignment before shipping so that every binocular will be perfectly collimated (that's a fancy word for aligned). This isn’t your Aunt Myrtle’s birdwatching set, dig?
And just to drive home the overpowering immense girth of these Oberwerks, we’re tossing in a pair of our ultra-chintzy Vivitar 4×15s, recently described (by us) as “laughably low-grade.” We’re sure you’ll agree.
