Fujinon engineered their 16x70 FMTR-SX Polaris Binoculars to provide expansive views with exceptional light-gathering capabilities for long-range terrestrial or wide-view astronomical observation. The oversized 70mm objectives are fully multicoated to limit light loss, boost brightness, and increase color fidelity. Proprietary EBC prism coatings reduce internal light loss due to diffraction while increasing color and contrast. Powerful 16x magnification coupled with a long eye reliefs and comfortably wide exit pupils allow for detailed observation of distant subjects such as birds or animals as well as for comet-hunting and lunar viewing.

The Polaris binoculars are equipped with individually-focusable eyepieces that allow precise control of each ocular, so you can achieve the sharpest image possible. Fold-down rubber eyecups form to your eye socket to block out peripheral light, which increases the brightness of the view through the binoculars. To relieve user fatigue and provide vibration-free viewing, it is recommended that the Polaris binoculars are mounted on a tripod using the concealed 1/4"-20 socket located at the front of the hinge with an optional tripod adapter. To help withstand the rigors of outdoor life, the chassis is made of a lightweight, durable aluminum alloy with rubber armoring and the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed for fog and waterproof performance in even the most extreme conditions. The chassis is further wrapped in a textured skin to provide a slip-resistant grip.
