Barska AB12766 overview

  • 1Description

Designed like tandem telescopes but with the familiar functioning of traditional binos, the Barska 16x70 WP Encounter Jumbo Binocular is ideal for wide-field astronomical and long-distance terrestrial viewing. Powerful twin 16x eyepieces are set at a 45° angle to put the head in a comfortable position when and individually focused to enable users with different eye prescriptions to achieve tack-sharp views, and fold-down rubber eyecups mold themselves to the eye socket to block stray peripheral light from interfering with the observational experience. To accommodate a variety of mounting options, the sides of the optical tubes have mounting holes for an array of manual, motorized, or GoTo yoke mounts; and a mounting hole on the bottom allows for a direct connection to a standard photo, video, or field tripod. Because of the size and weight of the binocular, a support system is recommended for celestial observing of the moon, comet hunting, or watching meteor showers; or tracking distant birds, animals, or ships.

The housing is made of a lightweight and sturdy aluminum alloy with an elegant glossy champagne finish that will allow this Encounter binocular to become an interesting accent in any room while maintaining its powerful functionality. Not to be relegated to the indoors, the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof, and extendable sun shades helps to improve views by blocking sun glare, or keeping rain and snow off the objective. A removable carry handle on the top ensures safe handling during set-up and break-down, and the included hard carrying case keeps the binocular safe during transport or storage.
