Barr & Stroud Savannah 12x56 ED Binoculars

Barr & Stroud Savannah 12x56 ED Binoculars

The Barr & Stroud Savannah 12x56 is the perfect binocular in the range for Astronomy or longer distance observation, the brightness and clarity of image truly has to be seen to be appreciated, words are not enough to describe the experience. Its 56mm objective lenses in combination with its 12x magnification results in the highest recommended magnification to the users eyes, this is important if the observer will be using the binoculars in low light conditions such as dawn and dusk when wildlife are on the move, or looking closely at a bird's plumage in dense foliage where the light is restricted. 12x magnification is about the maximum magnification recommended, a tripod or monopod may be useful for extended observing time.

The Savannah range from Barr & Stroud feature rugged construction combined with brilliant optics and high resolution wide field eyepieces to produces stunning images. They are waterproof to a depth 1.5m of water for three minutes, plenty of time to retrieve them if you have dropped them in a stream or puddle. This requires a high degree of mechanical quality in the construction of the binocular which is evident as soon as you pick the binocular up or use the super smooth focus control wheel. A further refinement of the Savannah range is the position of the individual eyepiece control just behind the main focus adjustment wheel, instead of the traditional adjustment ring placed in front of the right hand eyepiece. This makes balancing the binocular for the individual user's eyesight a simple operation that does not require the user to take the binoculars away from their eyes during the operation

We don't expect that you will make a habit of dropping the binoculars into deep water but we do expect that you will want to use them in any weather the planet can throw at you, so you can feel assured that the Barr & Stroud Savannah can take it, again and again. This ability is further enhanced by the binoculars rubber armoured body which protects it from shocks and knocks. The binoculars are filled with nitrogen gas which keeps water out and also stops the optics suffering from internal fogging in adverse weather conditions, this binocular is truly weatherproof.

Fully Multi Coated optics are standard features of the Barr & Stroud Savannah range as are BaK-4 phase coated prisms. This degree of sophistication ensures that as much light as possible is transmitted through the optics which results in super bright contrast rich images of high colour fidelity for the user even in low light conditions where less expensive optics and coatings result in a dramatic loss of performance.

For the comfort of the user the binoculars are supplied with metal twist up eyecups that are rubber coated which make them equally practical for people to use with or without spectacles. The rapid focus mechanism takes the user from close focus to infinity in less than one turn of the focus control knob, which ensures that you can follow the action however fast it is happening.
