Overview: The Nikon Monarch 3 8x42 binocular is a
waterproof binocular that can be used in extreme conditions, and is especially
designed for hunting and other outdoor activities. The Monarch 3 features a
durable rubber-armored coating for a sure grip, and comes with a
neck strap, eyepiece and flip-down objective lens caps, and a soft, padded carrying case.
Waterproof: The Monarch 3 is nitrogen-filled and O-ring
sealed to prevent fogging, and to protect the internal optics from condensation
and mold. The binoculars should suffer no damage to the optical system if
submerged or dropped in water to a maximum depth of 1 meter for up to 10
minutes. The Monarch 3 can be used in areas of high humidity or rain without
Multi-coated Optics: The lenses on the Monarch 3 feature multiple
layers of anti-reflective compounds for excellent brightness and resolution. The
eyepieces have aspherical lenses to give you a flat field of view without
aberration. Nikon's Eco-Glass lenses are lead- and arsenic-free. The Monarch 3s
deliver high-contrast images with accurate color reproduction, due to the
phase-correction, high reflective silver-alloy prism multi-coatings.
Focus Knob: The Monarch 3 has a smooth, central focus knob for
bringing your subject into focus.
Diopter Ring: The right eyepiece has a diopter ring for
adjusting the binoculars to your eyesight. A diopter index indicates the "0"
position, as well as "+" and "-" positions.
Eyecups: The turn-and-slide rubber eyecups make it easy to
position your eyes at the correct eye-point for the greatest comfort during
extended use. The Monarch 3s offer a long, 24.1mm eye relief, allowing you to
get a full field-of-view through the binoculars, even while wearing eyeglasses.
Rubber Coating: The body of the Monarch 3 has a durable
rubber-armored coating to give you a non-slip grip, and to protect the
binoculars in virtually any weather.
