Portable, powerful, and durable, the Celestron 10x42 Gamekeeper Roof Prism Binoculars are made with compact BAK4 roof prisms and anti-reflection multi-coated lens surfaces to boost the light-gathering ability and produce bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color representation. This midsized model has larger 42mm objectives that improve the binoculars' light-gathering ability and extend their use into the predawn and dusk hours, when many animals are most active, and without the weight and bulk of models with larger objectives. Their apparent angle of view approaches wide-angle to help users find their subjects faster and track moving targets more easily, while minimizing the appearance of the distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power binoculars. For vibration-free use and to free up both hands, this version of the Gamekeeper binoculars can be tripod mounted using an optional adapter.
To withstand the rigors of the outdoors, the chassis is made of a lightweight, yet durable, polycarbonate material that remains a comfortable temperature even as the mercury falls, and resists the expansion and contraction that is common with a metal chassis. Each optical tube is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging, so the Gamekeeper binoculars will continue to perform in even the most inclement weather. The binoculars are wrapped in a protective rubber armor with the Mossy Oak Bottomland camouflage pattern to provide a slip-resistant grip that won't give your position away. A large center focusing wheel and diopter collar are easy to manipulate even while wearing gloves and help ensure crisp and sharp images. Celestron binoculars include a tethered one-piece rainguard and stay-on / flip-down lens caps for the objectives that are easy to put on and take off without the risk of losing them.
Easy to handle, powerful, and with a boost in low-light performance from its smaller 10x25 counterpart, these midsized Gamekeeper binoculars are an ideal addition to your kit on the trail, at the range, or in a blind.
