Vanguard's Endeavor ED 8x42 binoculars deliver sharpness and clarity like never before, with exceptional light transmission and remarkable color resolution and contrast.

Extra Low-Dispersion (ED) glass effectively reduces colour dispersion and enhances color resolution and contrast. ED glass aligns the colors to meet at the same focal plane to reduce the chromatic aberration and obtain the highest resolution and image contrast, delivering a sharp image.

P2 Phase Coating was developed for enhanced image clarity and true color reproduction. Vanguard's P2 phase-coated BaK4 prisms creates crystal clear images and high resolution observation. The V-Max Silver Coating lens treatment provides crisper, more vivid images and sharper contrast due to impressive light reflection. Emerald Coating is specifically designed to provide the full spectrum of colour within the band of green tones. This coating is essential for nature enthusiasts, because it ensures the most vivid and natural shades of green.

Anti-Reflection Coating on all air-to-surface lenses dramatically minimizes light reflection on the lens. Coupled with fully multi-coated treatment, it ensures near perfect light transmission and image recognition, enabling the brightest images possible, even on the sunniest days.

The Endeavor ED features an ergonomic open-bridge design that's comfortable to use for prolonged periods, along with a wide viewing angle. Nitrogen-charged and o-ring sealed, the Endeavor ED is waterproof and fogproof to take on challenging weather conditions.
