Orion Scenix binoculars have always offered superior optical and mechanical quality compared to brands you find at most retail and sporting good stores. Now Scenix binoculars are even better, incorporating porro prisms made from high-grade BAK-4 optical glass. These are the same prisms found in binoculars that sell for four times the price or more than the affordable Scenix models.
You just can’t beat Scenix binoculars for all-around value and performance. Common, low-priced "mass market" binoculars have to cut corners by coating only one or two visible optical surfaces with antireflection coatings (and leaving many uncoated), by allowing looser tolerances on optical matching and alignment, and by employing poor-quality mechanical components.
Orion Scenix binoculars are refreshingly different. Every single air-to-glass surface of each binocular is antireflection coated, and the objective lenses are even multi-coated for additional light transmission and bright pleasing views. Orion doesn’t use gimmicky "ruby" coatings like you find on some binocular brands, which only serve to turn images an unnatural shade of green!

Its housing is constructed of sturdy metal, not plastic, and is armored with protective rubber which is a joy to grip. The large center focusing mechanism is the same one found on many more expensive binoculars, and adjusts smoothly to achieve ideal focus.
