Carson RD-042 overview

  • 1Description

Carson's 10x42 RD Binocular combines powerful magnification with an ergonomic chassis to produce an optic that is an ideal choice for the trail, range, stadium, or boat. BAK4 glass roof prisms and fully multi-coated optics maximize light transmission through the light path for accurate color rendition and improved clarity, contrast, and brightness. This optical performance, when added to the high power and wide viewing angle, produces an immersive observational experience with drastically reduced appearance of visible hand-shake or the disorientation caused by pitching or rolling decks when glassing on the water.

The RD is engineered with an open-bridge and dual-hinge, which reduce weight and provide more gripping surface area — without sacrificing strength or stability. To withstand the rigors of the outdoors, the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes. Its lightweight aluminum alloy chassis is wrapped in a green rubber armor that not only protects it from impacts, but provides a slip-resistant grip. For long observation sessions or hands-free use, the RD is tripod mountable when used with optional adapters.
