The new CONQUEST HD 8x32 is a lightweight model that is ideal as lightweight binoculars for hiking, traveling and animal observations. Its compact size makes it a convenient companion in difficult terrain. The 8x magnification provides a wide panorama and shake-free images. The close focus of just 6.5 feet allows you to experience crisp images and clear colors up close. This is particularly beneficial when watching butterflies or other insects. (These are the best butterfly and dragonfly glasses ever made!) The CONQUEST HD 8x32 satisfies all ergonomic requirements: the focusing wheel is so conveniently placed that it can always be quickly and easily used.
