Swarovski NL Pure 12×42 Binoculars allow you to detect every detail even at great distances. This is guaranteed by the 12x magnification. Ideal for use in wide open and expansive terrain, like fields, beach viewing and stargazing.

Even with an objective lens diameter of 42 mm, the unique ergonomics together with the forehead rest allow you to observe with ease for a long time.

We highly recommend the NL Pure Forehead Rest as an add-on. This stabilizer really improves one’s ability to hold the binoculars steady.

12x magnification is highly unusual for a birding binocular, but Swarovski has engineered these to have a full true field.   When you need to observe birds, animals and other subjects at extreme long distances, the Swarovski 12×42 NL Pure Binocular boasts an ultra-wide field of view and exceptional eye relief in a compact magnesium housing.

The NL Pure employs extra-low (HD) glass elements and a range of proprietary optical coatings that, when combined with its other performance features, creates a set of glasses that delivers impressive image quality and durability. In keeping with its tradition of high-performance optics, Swarovski uses highly reflective roof prisms and fully multicoated fluorite-containing HD glass lenses to deliver superior image quality. A field-flattener lens system complements the glass and coatings to keep the edges of the view crisp and sharp. The resulting views are rich with detail and saturated with lifelike color with exceptional contrast and resolution.

Interested in stargazing with these? We’ve got an inexpensive tripod adapter that will attach the binocular to your tripod.
