Birding on the Cheap

Perfect for the neophyte birder who wants quality glass without blowing his inheritance. The DCF NV's semi-compact design was fast on the draw, and the rubberized exterior helped protect them from inclement weather—and more than one clumsy drop. Their 16mm eye relief allowed for comfortable, strain-free viewing with or without glasses, and the multicoated lenses and phase-coated, super-reflective prisms provided great image contrast—meaning you'll be able to distinguish that yellow-rumped warbler from the branch it's sitting on.
