Opticron Binoculars and Other Optics

Watching birds is fun, and being able to see their behavior and beauty up close is even better! That's why having a good pair of binoculars or a spotting scope can make birding even more enjoyable. After a lot of research and product testing, we're excited to offer a selection of award-winning optics from Opticron. We frequently add new models to our in-store lineup. Two of our best-selling models are featured below.

Case with Opticron Binoculars

Oregon 4 LE WP 8x32 Binoculars

Top pick in a Cornell Labs review. Nice, bright image. Sturdy. Waterproof. 

In its class, the Oregon 4 LE WP 8x32mm really can't be beat — a top pick in a Cornell Labs review and recommended by BirdWatching magazine. The Oregon's smaller size is ideal for kids, but works well for adults due to the sturdy feel.

Even if you upgrade in the future, you'll be sure to keep these around as a trusty backup for locating that Prothonotary Warbler bouncing around the branches at the wildlife refuge.

Minimum IPD is 58mm.

*IPD = Interpupillary Distance (the distance between the center of the pupils of the two eyes)

 

Discovery WP PC 8x32, 8x42, 10x50 Binoculars

Compact and lightweight. Waterproof. Durable. Roof prism design. Three versions great for sea/distance, birding, observing butterflies and more.

The three versions of the Discovery WP PC that we carry really hit the sweet spot for value and high-quality optics in a compact package. These are some of the smallest waterproof roof prism style binoculars available.

Discovery WP PC 10x50

The 10x50mm version offers high magnification for sea/distance viewing, with the larger 50mm objective lens letting in more light to keep images bright — great for dolphin or whale watching at the beach, or on a boat. Smallest/most compact 10x50 on the market.

Discovery WP PC 8x42

These 8x42mm binoculars produce a very bright image, and can close focus to 4.9 ft. The combination of large eye lenses and ability to go down to an IPD* of 53mm makes these comfortable for both children and adults.

Discovery WP PC 8x32

The 8x32mm version offers a crisp, clear image and close focus to 3.9 ft! If you like to watch butterflies and dragonflies as well as birds, these are the compact binoculars for you! Both adults and children will find these comfortable to use due to an IPD* that can go down to 52mm.
