    The 16x70 binoculars are great for amateur astronomers. Viewing the night sky is spectacular but daylight observations are equally sharp with the APM MS ED APO 16 x 70 magnesium binoculars. This large binocular with its oversized 70 mm optics has great clarity and sharpness, and yet the 16 x 70 binoculars are portable and do not need a tripod.

    Great Optics:The optics show a clear, sharp and colorful image. No matter what magnification or aperture, APM magnesium binoculars use high-quality ED glass (FK61) and BAK-4 prisms for high contrast and crisp images across the entire field. Special coatings on all optical surfaces further increase the image quality and ensure lifelike colors. 

    IPX-7 waterproofing:The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) classifies the degree of protection against water and categorizes it in a system. The APM ED APO 16x70 binoculars have IPX-7 protection, which means they can withstand 30 minutes. at 1 m depth the penetration of water. Such a mishap will probably occur only rarely, but this protection ensures that this binoculars can be safely used in rain and splash water.

    Solid lightweight case:The binoculars have a magnesium housing, the lightest of the metals. Magnesium is still known for its strength and resistance to corrosion. The binoculars are also covered with a rubber coating that further protects the binoculars and allows a secure non-slip grip without weighing too much. The focus is adjusted by individually focusing each eyepiece individually. A tripod adapter connector is attached to the front of the bridge and covered with a nice metal cap. To access the port, all you need to do is unscrew the cap and attach the attached tripod adapter. 

    Large pupillary distance:
    The APM Telescopes 16x70 Magnesium Series binoculars have a very comfortable pupillary distance of 20mm. The term pupil distance explains where to place your eye to see the entire field of view. The smaller this distance, the closer you need to bring your eye closer to the eyepiece. If you wear glasses and want to watch with them, this distance becomes very important. Since the APM Telescopes binoculars have a large pupil distance, if you want to observe with a pair of glasses, you only have to fold over the eyecups. For normal observation without glasses, the eyecups remain unfolded. 

    Other accessories:All APM Telescopes magnesium binoculars come with a tripod adapter, a Cordura carrying case, a shoulder strap, lens caps and eyepiece caps.

    A Fantastic Pair of Binoculars!

    These binoculars are amazing. The first thing I noticed when I held them is how rugged they are; they are clearly built to last. Collimation was spot on when they arrived, which should be expected for binoculars of this caliber. You can spend over twice as much for the Nikon Astroluxes, or the Fujinon 16x70s, but the APM is going to rival both of them. I highly recommend heading over to the forums on cloudynights and reading about these binoculars. There is a wealth of information from other APM owners. I was planning on purchasing a pair of Oberwerks until I discovered all of the rave reviews of the APM ED series. The 16x70 can be handheld for short periods of time, but you will be amazed by what you can see when they're mounted. I mount mine on the Manfrotto 502AH head. To summarize, you are definitely getting what you pay for with the APMs. You will not be disappointed.
