Product Description

From the Manufacturer


Endeavor ED 1042 Binoculars
Endeavor ED 1042 Binoculars Endeavor ED 1042 Binoculars

Vanguard's top-of-the-range 10x42 Endeavor ED binoculars deliver sharpness and clarity like never before, with exceptional light transmission and remarkable colour resolution and contrast.

The Endeavor ED features an ergonomic, open-bridge design that's comfortable to use, along with a wide viewing angle and ultra-reliable BaK-4 roof prisms.

The magic behind the binocular's performance lies in the premium ED glass, which reduces light dispersion to provide high-resolution colours and clarity. As a result, you can view objects from a distance as if they were standing right next to you. Vanguard also added an anti-reflective coating for even better clarity and a large focussing wheel for ease of use. Also, thanks to the binocular's nitrogen-charged, O-ring-sealed design, the Endeavor's waterproof/fogproof housing can take on the most challenging weather conditions.

Lenses, prisms and coatings

ED Glass

ED glass effectively reduces colour dispersion and enhances colour resolution and contrast. Different light wavelengths do not come to the same point after passing the lens. ED glass helps to correct this problem. As a result, the image is sharper.

P2 Phase Coating

Developed for enhanced image clarity and true colour reproduction, P2 Phase Coating treatment to BaK4 prisms creates crystal clear images and high resolution observation.

V-Max Coating

V-Max Silver Coating is among the most cutting-edge lens treatments in optics, providing crisper, more vivid images and sharper contrast due to impressive light reflection.

AR coating (Anti-Reflection)

AR Coating on all air-to-surface lenses dramatically minimizes light reflection on the lens. Coupled with fully multi-coated treatment, it ensures near perfect light transmission and image recognition, enabling the brightest images possible, even on the sunniest days.

Emerald coating

The VANGUARD Emerald coating is specifically designed to provide the full spectrum of colour within the band of green tones. This coating is essential for nature enthusiasts, because it ensures the most vivid and natural shades of green.

Waterproof

Nitrogen charged and O-ring sealed, Endeavour is waterproof and fog proof to take on the most challenging weather conditions.

    I finally decided that I like to bird watch enough and make enough money to justify purchasing a really good pair of binoculars. Over the years I have had many pairs of under $100 binoculars and also own a slightly more expensive pair of compact Pentax binos so, I'm used to looking through lower cost binos. I read many online reviews before my purchase. Vangaurd binoculars seems to consistently be rated as a best buy. I was willing to spend 3 or 4 hundred dollars on a pair of binoculars but I wasn't willing to spring for a grand. Vangaurds, especially with ED glass, seemed to compare favorably to much more expensive binos.

    I did a side by side comparison of this binocular and the Vangaurd Endeavor 8.5 X 45 version. I actually thought I was going to want the higher power 10x42 version of the Endeavor. Based on my cheaper binoculars, I tended to like my 10 power binoculars better than lower powered ones. It look very little time to determine that the 8.5x45 binoculars were the superior ones with the side by side comparison. The 8.5x45 were significantly brighter and sharper. The field of view is listed as 340 ft at 1000 ft on both binos. However, the field of view definitely appeared to be wider on the 8.5 x 45 pair. The 10x42 worked OK with my glasses but I did feel as though I lost a small portion of the FOV. The 8.5x45 were great with glasses on or off. Using either pair it was easy to find birds hidden deep withing pine trees. The superior contrast allowed me to see details, even when birds were in dark areas, but again, the 8.5x45s were the standout. Certainly both pairs of binoculars were superior to any of my other pairs of binos and comparisons made it fairly easy to part with around three hundred bucks.

    Bought these binos because of a review I read. I must admit that I was a little apprehensive as back in the early 90's I had a set of Bausch and Lomb Elites costing well in excess of $1000 and these had a lot of living up to do! Well I would not hesitate in recommending these binos to anyone. They may not have a 'big player' name but if you get the chance take a look at them and then compare them to a pair of Leica or Swarovski's I promise you will be very surprised. I was.
    I am an avid birder and light transmission and clarity without chromatic aberration is paramount. I do not think I would justify spending a couple of thousand dollars when to me these are just as good.

    I am an amateur astronomer. I also wear prescription eyeglasses due to significant astigmatism. I need to keep my glasses on or star images look like footballs. The other reviews were positive and induced me to take the plunge when Amazon put these on a gold box sale. None of the reviews were from astronomers so I was really waiting to see what my experience would be. The title of my review says it all... superb.

    Every aspect of these binoculars is well thought out, the captive lens covers, the locking diopter adjustment, the quick focusing. Also, I can't believe the close focus range. The wide field views are excellent and from what I can tell, the collimation is perfect between the two tubes.

    Star images are superb with no flare and tack-sharp focus. The coatings really ensure that all the light gets to your eyes. They do very well on dim clusters and nebulae. The moon is rendered excellently with no excess glare or ghosting. Star colors come thru very well. No chromatic aberration to get in the way of the true color.

    I have been waiting my whole life for a set of eyeglass-friendly binoculars with this type of image quality. To find them at the aggressive gold box discount was icing on the cake.

    I have carefully compared these Vanguard Endeavor ED 8x42 binoculars to a pair of Bushnell Legend Ultra10x42 binoculars, both of which I purchased from Amazon. The two are quite similar in design and features. The differences noted below are slight.

    In both brands, overall image sharpness, image-edge sharpness, and brightness are excellent. These are the most important features in any binoculars. I studied a frost-laced spider web at 100 feet, and the clarity was amazing in both binoculars. Advantage - Draw.

    Mechanical operation (main focus, interpupillary distance) -- The interpupillary distance adjustment (width), and the main focus are somewhat stiffer in the Bushnells. The main focus in the Bushnells is also a bit awkward to adjust because it has some slack that must be taken up when changing the direction of rotation of the focus wheel. By contrast, the Vanguards have no slack in the focus wheel, with immediate reaction of the focus when the wheel is turned. One reviewer noticed a faint clicking in the Bushnells when operating the main focus wheel. This is not a mechanical flaw in the adjustment mechanism, but merely a "creaking" of the rubber covering of the wheel against the plastic substrate of the wheel. Advantage - Vanguard.

    Diopter adjustment -- The diopter ring on the Vanguards is much easier to operate than that on the Bushnells. The locking mechanism to prevent the diopter setting from being inadvertently changed is easily engaged or disengaged on the Vanguards, but difficult on the Bushnells. Due to some (very few) reviewers complaining of broken diopter rings on the Bushnells, I am very careful when adjusting the diopter. When focusing the Bushnell diopter I use thumb and forefinger; when locking or unlocking the ring, I use two fingers and a thumb.
