The new MONARCH HG was built from the ground up to achieve class-ruling optical performance, unrivaled ruggedness and exceptional handling. From eyecups to objective lenses, the new patriarch of the flagship MONARCH family pushes binocular performance to higher levels through design, technology and 20 years of MONARCH ATB-building experience.Every precious moment you spend in the field deserves the advantage of extraordinary performance. To this end, Nikon engineered the optical system of MONARCH HG around its ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass and high-quality multilayer coating that is applied to all lenses and prisms for brighter, higher resolution viewing.
Works in conjunction with MONARCH HG’s extraordinarily wide field of view* —8.3° and 6.9° respectively in the 8×42 and 10×42 models—to provide a sharp, clear view to the lens periphery.
Because a binocular of this significance must always perform and do so without weighing you down, MONARCH HG’s body is made from magnesium alloy. Providing optimum strength, impact resiliency and weight reduction, the slim body profile is further enhanced with rubberized panels to provide a sure grip in any conditions.
To assure long-term optical acuity, MONARCH HG objective and eyepiece lenses are protected by scratch-resistant coatings, while interior lenses are shielded from fogging with an extreme waterproof rating that assures fogproof integrity even at altitudes to 16,000 foot equivalent.
- High-quality multilayer coating is applied to all lenses and prisms, while dielectric high-reflective multilayer coating is applied to the roof prisms, achieving a bright view of up to 92% or higher light transmittance, and natural color fidelity
- Phase-correction prism coating enhances resolution and contrast
- Lead-and-arsenic-free glass used in all lenses and prisms
- Magnesium alloy body is lightweight and extremely durable
- Wider Available Interpupillary Distance Adjustment designed to fit virtually everyone–56mm-74mm
- Locking diopter control maintains your personal setting
- Long eye relief and turn-and-slide eyecups facilitate optimum eye position
- Closer minimum focus distance—just 6.6 feet
