Canon Binoculars

One of good features in Canon binoculars is the filter thread in front of the objective lenses. 10 x42 allows to set 52mm and 15 x 50/18 x 50 for 55mm. This is my 10 x 42. I love it!! The features and performance justify the cost in my opinion. It creates very clean and bright image. If it is a little lighter, it would be perfect though.

UV-cut filters for the lens protection

Since there is barely the depth from the front edge to lens surface, I was feeling I really needed the protection.

With these binoculars, you can enjoy wonderful observing day and night by changing following filters.

LPS-P2-52, light pollution filter

LPS-V4-52, nebula filter

D52-52, Density 5.2 solar filter

And regular UV-cut filter for lens protection

With LPS filters

I bet IDAS new visual solar filter is the best match with these binoculars for coming solar events.

BTW, I will be leaving for Japan tomorrow. So probably I can’t update my blog for a while. Please wit for my coming-back.

  1. I also have a pair of the Canon 10X42 binocs, and they are wonderful just as Ted said.

    Here’s a great homemade piece of kit, which is easily constructed and transfers the weight of the binocs from the hands to your shoulders.

    (Please note the wraparound URL. Well, that’s the way it appears while I’m composing this.)

    It looks sorta “funky,” but it is cheap, easy to make, and really does a good job!
