Powerful and durable, the Celestron 12x50 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. These full-sized binoculars have large 50mm objectives that improve their light-gathering ability to extend their use into the predawn and dusk hours, when many animals are most active, or to look into heavily wooded or densely canopied areas. Due to the size and weight of the binoculars, some users might experience hand shake or arm fatigue when hand-holding them, so for vibration and fatigue-free use or just to free up both hands, this version of the Gamekeeper 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 metal chassis. Each optical tube is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging, so the Gamekeeper 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, to ensure crisp and sharp images. Celestron includes a tethered one-piece rainguard and stay-on / flip-down objective lens caps that are easy to put on and take off without the risk of losing them.
The superb light-gathering ability of these full-sized Gamekeeper binoculars will make an ideal addition to your kit on the trail, at the range, or in a blind, in all light and weather conditions.
