For sale are a pair of the Swarovski 8.5 x 42 EL Binoculars. Included is a new Swarovski case, Fold-down objective caps, eyepiece winggards and the Rainguard EP cap. The objective caps and winggards are easily removable if desired.

The Binoculars are in GOOD condition and in spite of having been a workhorse for me show only light wear. The optics are excellent, although I do see a small circular spot on the right objective (visible in photo) - this could be a flaw in the coating, or might just be a water-spot - but in any event they have zero effect on the view. I have attempted some closeups to document the physical condition of the binoculars. The 8.5x42 EL's are almost legendary in the birding and astronomical communities for their fine optics - you simply won't find anything better than these. Specs from Swarovski are: Magnification: 8.5x, Effective objective lens diameter: 42mm, Exit pupil diameter: 4.9mm, Exit pupil distance (eye relief): 20mm, Weight:29.5oz / 835g

The collimation is spot on and they will be shipped insured and well-wrapped in bubble wrap. The only reason I am letting these go is that I (still) have enough binoculars (some 20 pairs!) to sink a battleship, so I am now attempting to prune my collection down to a more rational level!

These Swarovski binoculars new are $2,659 but are up for sale here at just $1,399 INCLUDING insured CONUS shipping and PayPal Fees. I have 5* ratings on both Astromart and CloudyNights and have been buying and selling fine astronomical equipment for well over a decade.

If using PayPal, please note that the PayPal payments need to be made to a DIFFERENT Email address, so contact me to request the correct PayPal address before making payment.

The first person to send an email saying "I'll take it" will get these fine binoculars.
