Designed for both astronomical and terrestrial use, Pentax's 12x50 S-Series SP Binocular features large oversized fully multicoated 50mm objectives to reduce reflection and maximize light transmission through the entire optical path. Utilizing the traditional porro prism configuration gives scenes a rich depth of view for an immersive observation experience and provides a comfortable feel in the hand with a lot of surface area to maintain a sure grip. The large objectives and coatings maximize the amount of light getting to the user's eyes for exceptional low-light capabilities, and its high 12x magnification provides an immersive observation experience whether users are bird watching or comet hunting.
The binocular sports a generous 11mm eye relief and the fold-down eyecups seal against the ocular cavity to block stray peripheral light which can dim images. Its over-sized objectives add weight and bias the center of gravity forward making user fatigue a concern and hand-shake a possibility, so to aid long observation sessions the binocular can be mounted on a tripod using an optional adapter.

Hi there I was slightly disappointed with the binoculars because they were not as clear as thought they would be and the image is distorted around the edges, also the adjuster wheel and hinge is quite stiff. Regards Colin Hurley
Great service and very quick delivery. Will use again.
