Accessories for Helios Fieldmaster
|Many thanks for your service, I bought a pair of these via your internet site on Saturday (16/12/06) morning, they arrived this morning well packed and thankfully without any indication of what was in the parcel as it is a Christmas present for my partner (who had to sign for it!)|
|I am an aircraft enthusiast and would appreciate any ideas for replacing my current binoculars. The Helios Fieldmaster seems to fit the bill, but, do you have any suggestions?

|The ones the seem most popular amongst aircraft enthusiasts are:
Helios 12x50 (this page)
Optical Hardware 10x50
Optical Hardware 12x60
Optical Hardware 20x80
A lot of it depends upon where the aircraft are being viewed, sometimes (actually usually!) at airports the aircraft can be miles away!
A 12x or 16x is the right sort of magnification for most airports and even in flight good views can be had. The higher magnifications are handy for very high altitude viewing (30,000 ft) and many people prefer even a large pair of 20x80 than having a scope (which really do give a good look at the high flyers, but need tripods etc).
Could you tell me the eye relief for these bins and the colour of their coatings, please?
eebc - Jamie
|The manufacturers do not specify the eyerelief on these binoculars.
They do have fold down rubber eyecups which are normally about 5mm high and fold back flush to the eyepieces.
The coatings are blueish on the objective lenses, and greenish on the eyepiece lenses.
