      Aurora BGA VHD 10x42 - Nick Moran

      Wednesday, December 1, 2021

      As I’ve come to expect with Opticron equipment, the Aurora binocular offers extremely good value for money. Its performance in various light levels raises the bar for binoculars in the middle price bracket, and indeed rivals that of many more expensive models.

      Aurora BGA VHD 10x42 - Xavier Riera

      Friday, November 12, 2021

      In terms of optical quality, in optimal light conditions, I found it excellent. In fact, I was entertained in comparing the two binoculars thanks to a group of Red-rumped Swallows that were perched on an electric wire, and I was hardly able to see any difference with my Zeiss. The Opticron Aurora have a very good contrast and the definition of the colours is totally faithful to what is perceived with the naked eye.

      Aurora BGA VHD 10x42 - James Hamilton

      Thursday, April 29, 2021

      Heading back to the car, the summary was pretty easy - the Aurora's are probably one of the very best binoculars available today sub £1,000 with performance, comfort, ergonomics and attention to detail all very good indeed.
