The World’s Most Powerful Binoculars
“Claimed to be the most powerful bins in the world, and we’re not going to quibble!”
- The Times Newspaper, London
The Sunagor 30-160x70s are widely believed to be the World’s most powerful pair of binoculars. At their starting point of 30x magnification, they already offer an above standard level of power found only on much more specialist binoculars. However, to then be able to move from 30x up to a maximum of 160x magnification, these binoculars enter a power class of their own and in doing so, redefine the boundaries of modern zoom optics. With a choice of magnification anywhere from 30x to 160x, these Sunagor binoculars offer the user complete versatility over their viewing distance and one that is unrivalled in range by any other zoom binoculars on the market.

Specialist Zoom Functions
In order to accommodate a market leading magnification range, special consideration was required in the design of the zoom functions on the Sunagor 30-160x70 binoculars. The first area of redesign was the zoom lever, the function that controls the amount of magnification. Sunagor have made the lever larger than normal and have also designed it to be a little more firm when sliding it. The combination of these two new features, make zooming the 30-160x70s a more precise and manageable experience. The second area of redesign is the positioning of the zoom lever.
Developed in Japan, the binoculars have a durable design, with rubber armoured body to provide protection for the internal optics. The rubber armouring also gives the binoculars a great non-slip surface to grip, even when wearing gloves. With such a large magnification range, one could assume that the binoculars might be too heavy and large to handle, but with the Sunagor 30-160x70 binoculars, this is not the case. Weighing in at a below average (for their class) 1.4kg and measuring 25cm in length, they are manageable by hand and easy to transport.

Unlike many binoculars, the Sunagor 30-160x70 are of BCF “one-piece” construction. This means that the barrels are not simply screwed on to the body, but the entire product is produced using one mould. The end result means that the binoculars offer more precision and a higher degree of rigidity. This helps to avoid collimation (alignment) problems which can sometimes be associated with very high magnification binoculars.
The binoculars incorporate collapsible rubber eyecups which allow spectacle wearers to enjoy a complete field of view. Located on each side of the binoculars, there are purpose built lugs which allow a neck strap (included) to be attached, thus helping a user to properly distribute the binocular’s weight. The other design feature is a centrally located tripod socket (located between the two barrels), Sunagor recommend using a tripod to stabilise the binoculars at higher magnifications.

High Quality Japanese Optics
To optimise the incredible magnification, Sunagor have put a good emphasis on the quality of the internal optics within their 30-160x70 binoculars which boast the following features:- Firstly, they incorporate generous 70mm objective lenses which help to maximise the amount of light entry, even at higher magnifications. Secondly, all optical components in the binoculars are manufactured from high quality Japanese eco-glass and all surfaces have been treated with specialist Sunagor coatings. Finally, the highest quality BAK-4 prisms have been used within the Porro design. All of these premium optical features combine to increase light transmission and reflectivity in order to produce clear and vivid images.
The Sunagor 30-160x70 binoculars come with a set of useful accessories. A durable padded case is designed to protect the binoculars when not in use. A neck strap, constructed of durable nylon, is designed to firmly attach to the binoculars and help to distribute their weight during transport. Also included is a pair of objective lens covers, eyepiece protectors and a high quality tripod adapter, which allows the binoculars to be easily connected to any tripod.
Wide Ranging Use
Thanks to their market leading zoom capability, the Sunagor 30-160x70 “Mega Zoom” Binoculars can be put to a wide ranging number of, previously impossible, new activities as well as help to extend typically popular viewing pursuits.
One of the most optimal ways to enjoy the incredible magnification is to observe subjects at a very long distance, therefore making these binoculars ideally suited to all types of astronomical use. Between 100x and 160x magnification, the binoculars can match the power of expensive telescopes, with the added benefit of two eyepieces to observe through as opposed to just one found on telescopes. Distant stars, moons, planets and even galaxies can be easily viewed through these powerful binoculars, making them the ultimate astronomy tool.
Coming a bit closer to Earth..... thanks to the improved design features, including rubber armour and manageable portability, the binoculars are also suitable for use in general observation activities which occur out in the field. Included are various forms of long distance wildlife watching where distance may need to be maintained in order not to scare a viewing subject off. Equally, they also serve purpose in more professional or tactical observation activities, such as covert or even military applications where concealment or maintaining distance is fundamental to an operation. Aircraft spotting and observation is also a very popular pursuit for which these binoculars are ideal. Finally, of course, these binoculars have also found uses in the varied world of sports where the benefits of a binocular form outweigh those of a less versatile and portable spotting scope.
