Although Papilio is good for looking
at nearby objects, it is often used by stargazing-lovers as well.
It is equipped with technologies necessary
for stargazing such as full multi-coating
and aspherical lenses.
As it is compact enough to fit in the

・ With Papilio's binoculars, I think I can see more distant points widely compared to other binoculars.
Although I was not used to bird watching, I could observe a swallow catching an
insect in low-altitude flight.
It's an amazing item.

・The vision is three-dimensional,
unlike a magnifying glass or a loupe! ・Because I can see with both eyes,
my eyes are not so strained even after long observation. ・The closer points you look,
the more you can observe in detail, which is quite interesting! ・I could see even the rough
surfaces of the museum exhibits. The accuracy is so surprising. ・I feel the objects become brighter and
clearer compared to when I'm using other binoculars!

them with the minimum distance 2 - 3m.

When you look at insects or museum
exhibits, you will get unexpected new discoveries
as you can see their details and fine touches.
Light will be lost little by little as it
passes through binocular lenses and the surfaces of prisms. "Multi-
coating" prevents such loss of light.
As Papilio II has provided multi-coating on all lenses and the surfaces of prisms, it reduces the loss of light and a bright vision is obtained.
High refractive index prism Bak4
High refractive index glass prism
with an excellent optical performance.
A high-grade prism is used that reflects light completely and produces a bright and clear image over every corner.
The aspherical lenses realize a clear vision
with little distortion over the entire
field of view.
Long eye relief
Thanks to the long eye relief with 15mm
depth, you feel less tired after long
observation. Even when you are wearing
glasses, you can use it comfortably without
any loss of vision.
By covering the entire body
with rubber, it has excellent impact resistance and is
characterized by comfortable holding without being slippery.
In situations where hand shake is a concern, you can also use a tripod to fix Papilio's
position. If the tripod's platform is small, it can be
