The 12x magnification of the Ostara Elinor 12x50 binoculars makes them a perfect choice for plane / ship spotting and long distance terrestrial use. Can be mounted on a tripod with an additional adapter (not included) to help keep steady on long observing sessions.
High Resolution BAK4 prisms ensure a brighter image throughout the range of magnifications by maximising light transmission. Efficient use of the light gathered is particularly important at high magnifications where images appear darker or for applications were colour identification is essential. The traditional porro prism designed gives higher quality images when compared to roof prism or compact (reverse) porro prism designs in the same price range.
Long eye relief makes these binoculars ideal for spectacle wearers. It enables users wearing glasses to view the entire field of view as the binocular image is projected further out of the exit pupil. This model features twist eyecups for comfort and durability.
The quality of the image produced by these binoculars is such that you could use it for applications that would normally require a higher magnification and it compares favourably to binoculars more than double its normal retail price.
The Elinor range carry the manufacturers 30 Year guarantee. In order to achieve this guarantee of quality each individual binocular is UK checked and finished and must pass a rigorous optical and physical quality test.
