Luger Optik World
Welcome to the Luger Optik World!
On the following pages you will find a lot of information in regard to optics.
The part "Observation and aiming optics" can be read by everyone. In order to read the other parts you need to fill in the code that comes in every package of a Luger Optik product.
Binoculars, spotting scopes and rifle scopes play an important role in the lives of many people. Hunters, sport shooters, bird watchers, hikers, security personnel, visitors of cultural and sport events, sailors and many other groups use tele-optical devices. Some activities would be impossible without tele-optical devices.

The purchase of a high quality tele-optical product is a long-term investment. In most cases it requires an appreciable financial commitment and should therefore be based on a well-considered decision. This is true for the purchase of a single product and, even more, the right combination of a person`s optical equipment. Hunters, in particular, have to make sure that their optics go together and match with the anticipated conditions. To take the right choices, some knowledge in the optics field is required. Users of optical devices should understand the behaviour of light, the function of the human eye and the characteristics of optical components.
We hardly ever contemplate the design, manufacture, optical properties, and technical details of tele-optical products. When we look through binoculars we naturally expect to see distant objects “up close”, “large”, and “sharp”. But how does that work? What are the physical and physiological principles behind these phenomena?
LUGER OPTIK WORLD treats these subjects in a thorough and comprehensive way. With the purchase of any LUGER product the access to this interesting and expressive presentation is granted.
While LUGER OPTIK WORLD emphasises the theoretical principles, this text takes a more practical approach to the subject. It relays valuable optical knowledge and offers a host of hints for the purchase of tele-optical products.
This text focuses on binoculars, spotting scopes and riflescopes. Observation and aiming optics are designed to bring distant objects “closer” to the user to allow a better and more detailed view than with the naked eye.
Binoculars are primarily designed to view large terrain segments, but they also allow a close-up look at single objects. Spotting scopes, on the contrary, are laid out for the detailed viewing of far-away single objects such as game, targets, buildings, isolated terrain features etc.
Rifle scopes are an essential, indisposable aid to hunters and shooters, allowing them to deliver long-range precision shots.

How do tele-optical devices work, what principles are they based on? How are distant objects “brought up close” to the viewer´s eye? What should be taken into account when buying and using binoculars, spotting scopes, and rifle scopes?
We first have a look at the subjects light, human eye, vision and colour, followed by a discussion of the principal tele-optical terms, components and magnitudes.
We are then ready to discuss the devices in detail.
