Leica’s Sport Optics has released a new pair of binoculars just in time for Christmas that pay tribute to the pair of binoculars that travelled with the crew of the original moon landing in 1969. In the 50 years since the Apollo 11 carried out this historical space mission, the intrigue surrounding space travel and the moon has not diminished. Now readers can get their hands on a little piece of the history, even if that is only to get a slightly closer look at the earth’s closest neighbour.
The new Leica Trinovid binoculars pay tribute to the original Leitz Trinovid which were a style icon appreciated worldwide by scientists, nature observers, ornithologists and travellers. That is why NASA opted to send a Trinovid with the Apollo 11 moon mission.

This pair of binoculars offers precise, powerful premium optics with superior field of view and impressive orientation.
