The yellow 14x40 Stedi-Eye Mariner-C Image Stabilized Binocular from Fraser Optics is an fully multicoated optical device designed for long-range observations from unstable viewing platforms on the ground, in the air, or at sea. It is designed to withstand long-term use in demanding weather conditions with a rugged slip-resistant armor and a housing that is shockproof, waterproof, submersible, and buoyant.
This binocular uses gyro stabilization technology to correct up to 98% of image motion caused by hand tremor and platform motion. As the optical housing pitches and/or rolls, the gyro mechanism compensates for the motion by mechanically orienting the prisms in the opposite direction. This process of stabilization occurs in real time and corrects motion on the pitch and roll axes within 8°. It can run for up to 12 continuous hours on single CR123 battery, and an optional external power pack is available for extended use. Two polarized lens filters for high-glare marine environments and a hard case hard case with cut-out foam are included.
