Powerful twilight performance, top class technology and a sophisticated design – the new HG 8x56 from MINOX perfectly complements the previous high-grade binocular series.


The HG 8x56 with extreme light gathering power is the ideal companion for observation or hunting in moonlight or in twilight conditions.By using special optical glass from German glass specialists SCHOTT AG, a newly developed optical system provides a fascinatingly high level of light transmission which is bound to be highly rated for brightness and contrast. Apart from optics, Minox have also installed a 'first' as the innovative Quick-Close-Focusing (QCF) now makes it possible to take exact distance readings from a scale on the focusing wheel, an often looked for feature on binoculars. With these exciting features and given quality, the MINOX HG is today’s trailblazer that has all the quality and features potential to become tomorrow’s classic.


Top quality light transmission is an essential mark of quality in binocu-lars. MINOX engineers developed the innovative M*-coating of the lenses which consists of up to 21 different layers on the glass surfaces, adapting the various wavelengths of the visible light. This increases the overall light transmission to an impressive 92 percent, while improving brightness, contrast, detail and colour rendering significantly. Another benefit is a completely new optical system designed by our in-house experts with internal anti-reflection and anti-glare coatings to help improve contrast. Thanks to the additional MINOTEC coating on the lenses any adhering dust or dirt particles can be simply wiped away. Even droplets of water pearl off with ease, making outdoor use much more convenient. To provide a reliable and durable protection against internal corrosion and fogging, the binoculars are filled with state-of-the-art Argon gas.


Another milestone is the mirroring of the roof prisms through the Mino-Bright technology. This silver-based coating guarantees an improvement of up to 99.8 percent efficiency of the light reflected at the mirror surface. This is yet another improvement towards better light transmission within the system of the HG-binoculars. High technology originating from German glass pioneers used for innovative optical products by the Wetzlar based optic specialists. All of the expertise from MINOX, a trusted industry pioneer, is combined in this high quality product.


Better and more advanced handling is achieved through the Quick-Close-Focus (QCF), developed and patented by MINOX. With just one turn of the focusing wheel the HG-binoculars can be adjusted from close-up to infinity. This one turn allows fast focusing close-up, and a more precise focusing for longer distances. With the aid of a scale on the central focusing wheel, the distance to the object in focus is indicated to the user. This additional feature makes these HG-binoculars a reliable distance rangefinder.


The rotating eye cups for people wearing glasses - found on all MINOX binoculars - can be adjusted in four fixed stops.
