The compact and lightweight 8.5x21 U-Series Papilio II Binocular combines aspherical optical elements and BAK4 Porro prisms to deliver edge-to-edge image sharpness with a 51° apparent angle of view. The optical elements are also fully multicoated to provide a high transmission of light. With a 8.5x magnification and 21mm objectives, you obtain a notable magnification, insignificant image jitter due to unsteady hands, and a compact form factor. You can easily spot your targets with a wide 6° angular field of view and quickly bring them into focus with a center focus wheel. In addition to observing distant scenes, birds and game, the minimum focus of 20" allows you to study in detail close objects like butterflies, animal footprints, marks or landscape features. To reduce image jitter while observing distant objects or for prolonged observations, you can connect the binocular to a tripod via an integrated 1/4"-20 socket. The binocular also features a 2.5mm exit pupil, a 15mm eye relief, an interpupillary and a diopter adjustments.

The binocular is very compact, lightweight, and features a single piece frame that houses objectives, which allows for a synchronized interpupillary adjustment. To accommodate eye glasses wearers, the binocular offers twist-up rubber eyecups. Also included are a carrying case, a neck strap, and eyepiece covers.

  • Fully-multi-coated optics assure maximum light transmission resulting in high quality viewing. Every surface of every element is fully coated minimizing internal glare and flare and giving a bright clear view.
  • Unique Uni-body design enhances durability by locking objective lenses in a single housing and synchronizing the eyepiece movement. This minimizes moving parts and assures these binoculars will function properly and clearly for years to come.
  • Aspherical lens elements, which are critical in compact binoculars, provide exceptional edge-to-edge sharpness. This assures that items on the edge of your field of view are just as sharp as those in the center.
  • Available in 6.5x21 and 8.5 x 21 magnifications.
  • Features the PENTAX-developed Convergent Lens Optical System Engineering mechanism, which automatically slides the left and right objective lenses toward the center when the focus is fixed at a short distance. As a result, the right and left image fields are correctly aligned to facilitate close-range viewing.
  • Specifically developed to satisfy user demands for close-range observation of butterflies and other insects. Thanks to its go-anywhere portability, this series is also ideal for conventional binocular subjects, including spectator sports, travel and hiking.
