Designed for long-range observations from unstable viewing platforms, the Fraser Optics 14x40 Stedi-Eye Monolite-P Gyro-Stabilized Monocular uses gyro stabilization technology to correct up to 98% of image motion caused by hand tremor and platform motion. This is especially useful for law enforcement personnel and first responders observing from a marine vessel, moving vehicle, or helicopter. When the optical housing pitches and/or rolls, the gyro mechanism compensates for the motion by mechanically orienting the prisms in the opposite direction. This process of stabilization occurs in real time and corrects motion on the pitch and roll axes within ±8 degrees.
The objectives draw in enough light for use from dawn to dusk, while the high power is optimized for long-distance viewing. To ensure the brightest images possible, the optical system is fully multi-coated with magnesium fluoride (MgFI), which evenly passes light across the entire visual spectrum so colors are represented correctly with improved contrast and clarity. Ideal for scanning large swaths of territory, the Stedi-Eye is engineered with a wide apparent angle of view.
To withstand the rigors of constant use in the elements, the chassis is 100% sealed to be waterproof and submersible—and if it goes overboard, it is also buoyant for easy retrieval. The entire chassis is covered in a slip-resistant neoprene cover and a hand strap is included to add further grip security. This model of the monocular is supplied with standard accessories plus a nylon pouch with shoulder strap.
