  • 12x Magnification: Allows you to see distant objects with remarkable clarity and detail. It brings subjects closer, making them appear larger and more defined, which is especially useful for activities like birdwatching, nature observation, and even stargazing.
  • 30mm Objective Lenses: Capture a larger amount of incoming light, enhancing the brightness and clarity of the images you see through the binoculars. This is particularly beneficial in low-light conditions, such as early mornings or late evenings, ensuring that you can still observe with clarity and detail.
  • Fully Multi-Coated: The optics of the binoculars are fully multi-coated, meaning that multiple anti-reflective coatings are applied to all air-to-glass surfaces. This advanced coating technology enhances light transmission, minimizes glare, and ensures optimal image brightness and clarity. Users can enjoy vivid and detailed views with reduced reflections.
  • BK7 Roof Prism: The binoculars incorporate BK7 roof prisms, known for their compact and straight-line design. This prism type contributes to the slim and streamlined form factor of the binoculars, making them easy to handle and carry. The BK7 prisms also aid in maintaining image sharpness and brightness.
  • Twist-Up Eyecup: The twist-up eyecups on the Vixen ATERA H12x30mm Binoculars provide versatility and comfort for users, allowing them to adjust the eye relief to their preference. This feature is particularly beneficial for eyeglass wearers, ensuring a comfortable viewing experience with or without glasses.
  • Enhanced Stability with Vibration Cancelling: The ATERA H12x30 integrates a 2-axis gimbal-controlled vibration-canceller, countering hand-induced vibrations for clear viewing at high magnifications. A strong ±3-degree vibration correction angle ensures stability even at 12x magnification, enhancing detail observation and improving stargazing by revealing faint stars up to first-grade classification.
  • Effortless One-Handed Operation, 422g Lightweight: Weighing only 422g, the ATERA H12x30 is the lightest binoculars with vibration cancelling (battery excluded, by November 2017 survey). This lightness facilitates extended use without fatigue, ideal for nature exploration and prolonged observation.
  • 12-Hour Endurance via AAA Batteries: Benefit from extended observation with two AAA batteries, easily obtained anywhere. Its stamina design offers around 12 hours of operation (new alkaline dry batteries at 20°C), allowing focused observation without battery worries. Auto power-off conserves energy by shutting down after 5 minutes of inactivity.
  • Crystal-Clear Vision through Triple Coatings: Enjoy utmost clarity via full multi-coating with anti-reflective layers on lens surfaces, phase coating on prisms for resolution enhancement, and a high reflection coat for brightness. These coatings eliminate stray light, ensuring clarity.
  • Ergonomic Excellence for Optimal Handling: A gentle rounded form fits small hands, a responsive focus ring caters to a single finger, and universal design accommodates both hands. Battery placement away from grip areas ensures comfort, while integrated battery lid prevents part loss.
  • Included Accessories: The package comes with a custom carrying case for easy portability and a neck strap for added convenience during transportation. Moreover, users benefit from a limited 1-2 year warranty, ensuring assurance and support for their astronomical endeavors.
