Description:It's possible that Garrett Optical's Gemini Lightweight binoculars represent the best value around in giant binocular. The 20x80 LW model comes packed with features normally found only on binoculars costing anywhere from 50% more to several times as much, such as Fully Broadband Multi-Coated optics and barium crown (BAK4) prisms. Rubber armor, long 17mm eye relief and wide-angle, 64-degree apparent field-of-view eyepieces only adds to the appeal. A specially-designed "slow-focuser" allows the precise adjustments necessary to achieve maximum performance. Each binocular is carefully hand-tested before it reaches your doorstep. Collimation, if necessary, is performed by binocular expert Cory Suddarth of Suddarth Optical Repair. Collimation is user-adjustable, in case the binoculars are knocked out of alignment. Each binocular comes with a padded hard carrying case and Garrett Opticals two-year warranty. Many believe that the 20x80 size of giant binoculars provides the perfect balance between aperture and magnification. The affordable Gemini 20x80 LW adds the additional features of a rubber-padded aluminum center-bracket for easy tripod mounting, 3.2-degree (168 ft./1000 yds.) true field of view and remarkably light weight of just 4 lbs., 9.5 oz. The 20x80 LWs lightness means that this big binocular can be mounted on a variety of medium-duty tripods that would normally be unsuitable for so large an instrument. That translates to a lighter overall setup and significantly reduces the investment necessary to procure a solid mounting.
