At 422 grams, the ATERA H12x30 is one of the lightest binoculars with an image stabilizer. Thanks to the strong stabilizer effect , an extremely stable field of view is achieved even with the free hand. At a higher magnification you can observe everything in detail, such as reading signs and labels, recognizing the structure of bird feathers and the ATERA is also a great helper when observing the stars in astronomy.
Less vibrations in the field of view increase the visibility of object details and the comfort of observation.
The vibration of the hands often makes it difficult to see fine details on objects, especially when magnified. The ATERA H12x30 has a vibration suppression mechanism ( gimbal ) with a 2-axis gimbal-controlled image stabilization mechanism. With a very large vibration correction angle of ± 3 degrees (up, down, left and right), a stable field of view can be achieved even at a high magnification of 12x . Since the micro-vibrations are also canceled , the finest details can only be recognized.
Two commercially available AAA micro batteries are used for the power supply . Since they are easy to get anywhere, safe operation is guaranteed even in remote areas. Thanks to a long operating time of up to 12 hours , you can concentrate on the observation without having to worry about battery consumption. An automatic switch-off function, which interrupts the power after 5 minutes, prevents the batteries from discharging unnecessarily.
By applying a complete multiple coating and an anti-reflective coating on all lens surfaces and the additional phase coating on the prisms , the light transmission and thus the brightness of the image are drastically increased. All of these measures ensure little scattered light and light loss and produce a particularly clear and high-contrast image.
A gently rounded shape that adapts to the hands, a focusing ring that can be turned gently with just one finger, a simple design, a battery compartment that is located away from the operating area, all of this enables comfortable handling. The integrated battery cover also provides effective protection against loss.
The ATERA is supplied with a comfort strap and a protective bag for transport.
