With their roof prisms with phase correction coating, the user is given an image of exceptionally high detail rendition and rich contrast, even in poor lighting conditions. Nitrogen gas filling prevents fogging of the optical surfaces on the inside, even with extreme temperature fluctuations. Based on a sophisticated sealing technology developed by Minox engineers, the Minox BL 8x56 and the Minox BL 13x56 are also fully watertight down to a depth of five meters.
