Vixen Binoculars ATERA II H14x42 (Black) Description
1. The built-in vibration canceller prevents the binoculars from shaking.
One of the advantages of the binoculars is you can easily bring out to anywhere for observing but shaking can
prevent you from looking at your observing target. It will be obvious when the binoculars bring high
The ATREA II H14x42WP comes equipped with the vibration canceller system that originates from
a 2-axis gimbal control image stabilization mechanism. This enables us to effectively compensate image shifts
of +/- 3 degrees at vibration correction angle (with all directions) and offers a stable field of view of the
binoculars. Even micro-vibrations are controlled successfully, and you will be able to enjoy observing a glow
in a bird’s eyes and a look of bird feathers in detail. With the use of star watching, you will be able to
notice fainter stars that are hard to see with the ordinary binoculars due to the effectiveness of the
2. Two anti-vibration modes to your preference.
The binoculars come equipped with two anti-vibration modes that can be selectable according to use scenes. V1
Mode: Absorbs small vibrations moved jitterly. (This mode is preferable to use when you want to look at a
moving object.) V2 Mode: Absorbs large vibrations moved slowly. (This mode is preferable to use when you want
to appreciate a stationary object.)
3. Three types of optical coatings for a brighter and clearer field of view.
Each of the lens surfaces is coated with multilayers of anti-reflection coatings. The prisms are phase coated
to reduce halation and enhance resolution greatly. Besides a high reflection coating is applied. These three
types of optical coatings eliminate stray light and loss of light thoroughly to achieve an extremely bright
and clear field of view.
4. Operating duration of 12 hours with AAA batteries.
Two AAA batteries are used for the power source. As the AAA batteries are obtainable in most places, you can
willingly bring the ATERA II H14x42WP to an outdoor observing field or live event. It works for 30 hours with
the batteries, and there is no need to care about the consumption of the batteries (at 20 degrees C ambient
temperature and with the use of Alkaline batteries).
5. Waterproof specification.
The binocular (optical lens housing) has an IPX4 waterproof rating and is usable in a wet environment
outdoors without worrying.
6. The shape of easy-to-handle form and excellent operability.
The comfortable rounded form makes it easy to use, even for women with small hands. The focus ring is turned
smoothly with one finger with a light touch. Universal design for either right or left-handed. By positioning
the battery compartment which occupies the volume in space to a location where fingers do not reach, we focus
on ease of holding. Considering the loss of parts in the dark like concert halls, the battery cover is tied
with a band to the battery compartment for unity.
7. A simple appearance with an ergonomic form.
Although the binocular incorporates the full-dress mechanics of a vibration-canceling system, it has a sleek
appearance and fits your hand gently. Colors are available in black.
8. The binocular case of a mini tote bag style.
The provided binocular case is a mini tote-styled pouch with a shoulder strap.
