Combining their proprietary High Transmission (HT) optical system with large objectives in their 8x54 Victory HT Binoculars, ZEISS delivers an optic with outstanding performance, especially in low-light conditions. The HT system enables better than 95% light transmission from the objectives to the user's eyes by employing extra-low dispersion SCHOTT fluoride (FL) glass elements multi-coated with ZEISS' T* coatings to maximize light transmission through the entire optical path. An Abbe-Koenig prism design complements the FL glass and T* coatings, resulting in an image that is exceptionally bright and rich with contrast, clarity, and detail from dawn to dusk. The relatively low magnification and large objectives produce an exceptionally wide 6.7mm exit pupil that ensures full coverage when the pupils are fully dilated in low light.
Their magnesium-alloy housing reduces the overall weight without sacrificing strength and durability, and the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for water and fog proof performance in all weather conditions. The innovative Dual-Link bridge construction allows the bridge to be very small without sacrificing strength or stability, and the unique elongated prism configuration enables the optical tubes to be thinner than normal. These two features work together to give the binoculars a large and comfortable gripping surface and a wide interpupillary adjustment range. Because of the size of the objectives and the length of the optical tubes, hand-holding these binoculars may cause fatigue, so ZEISS made them tripod mountable with an optional adapter for long-duration glassing sessions. Add in the ergonomic non-slip rubber armouring and focus wheel, and the Victory HT becomes a full-featured optic ready for all seasons.
