Steiner 8.5x50 Peregrine Binoculars
Designed specifically for the most natural color reproduction and the highest possible light transmission over the visible color spectrum the new Peregrine from Steiner brings birds and wildlife perched in the shadows into a sharp bright image. Phase corrected and fully multi-coated with Steiner exclusive broadband HD (High Definition) lens coating . The optics of course are only top shelf and are ground polished and prepared for your binoculars by Steiner-Germany's master lens makers.8.5x50 Peregrine - Specifically designed for wildlife observation the new Peregrine offers the ideal balance between power brightness and portability. With a bit more power then its 8x42 Peregrine and a significantly larger exit pupil Steiner's new 8.5x50 Peregrine does not sacrifice portability for increased power and brightness. The new Peregrine weighing merely 30 ounces can be comfortably worn on a neck strap or stored in a backpack. A new body harness is also available now for the Clic-Loc quick release strap attachment buckle system (Item no. 984).The OpticsWith Steiner's new Peregrine a new level of brightness and natural color balance is achieved by use of a new dielectric prism coating by which over 40 layers of titanium oxide and other rare minerals are alternately applied to the glass surfaces. This Broad-Band Coating (BBC) results in superior light transmission performance over a broad range of colors. The Peregrine is also phase corrected for sharpest possible distortion free images.The optics of the Peregrine measure higher in spectral light transmission across the entire visible light range on average than all of our other closest performance competitors. This means you see colors more vibrantly and you can discover and identify species in more difficult settings and situations.FocusingThe focus is our rapid close-focus system with left hand diopter adjustment. The precise central focus wheel will go from a close focus of less than 6 feet out to infinity in just one full turn.Any less - the focus would be to sensitive and not precise enough. Any more - the focus could be too slow. The focus of the Peregrine was designed to give you this perfect balance of speed and precision.Shockproof/WaterproofWe're not just saying it we practically invented it! As you may already know Steiner has been in the binocular business for over 55 years now and has developed numerous innovations which makes binoculars last longer in unfriendly conditions. Early on we pioneered the use of rubber armoring and most recently we developed a dry nitrogen purging and pressurization system that absolutely prevents binoculars from fogging internally. We built this purging/pressurized dry nitrogen system into the Peregrine binoculars. They are the only birding glass that we know of that meets and exceeds the US governments waterproof specification (Mil Std 810 E).Click Here To Order
