Product Specifications

Every Meade binocular incorporates quality optical components, durable optical housings, and precision mechanical components for years of high-performance observing. Binoculars are available in hundreds of specifications and with a multitude of different features, but all share the same three basic components. The main (objective) lenses of a binocular serve to collect light, thereby enabling the high-resolution observation of distant objects. In a quality binocular each objective lens typically is manufactured of two separate glass elements, the so-called crown and flint elements. The refractive specifications of these elements permit the objective lens to image objects free of false colors. Since the objective lenses form images that are both upside-down and reversed left-for-right, prisms are required to invert the primary image. Most commonly, binoculars utilize either porro prisms or roof prisms for this purpose. Porro prisms give binoculars their familiar zigzag profile, while roof prisms permit a straight-line design. Either type of prism, properly manufactured, yields excellent optical results. The ocular, or eyepiece, design included with a binocular has important performance implications. While the most basic function of an eyepiece is to magnify the image formed by the objective lens, in fact the eyepiece also largely determines the binoculars field of view, edge-of-field image resolution, and other characteristics. From two to five glass elements are used in the manufacture of the eyepieces. With this knowledge of the basic components of a binocular, it is now possible to understand the technical terminology that will enable selection of the right binocular for you.
