Opticron Aurora BGA VHD 8x42 Binoculars

“Smaller, Lighter, Brighter, Sharper”, the Opticron Aurora BGA VHD 8x42 takes Opticron’s design maxim to a new and even higher level than the DBA VHD+. Designed on a new platform with an entirely new optical system, the Aurora is, we believe one of the very best lightweight pro field binoculars available today. With performance, comfort, ergonomics and attention to detail equal or better than its sister model, the Aurora BGA VHD 8x42 delivers a wider 8.1° FOV, closer focus to 1.9m/6.2ft and a sweet spot so large it will surprise and delight even the most critical eyes.
