STEINER OPTICS LAUNCHES HIGH-END BINOCULARS FOR BIRDERS AND OUTDOOR EXPLORERS
Building upon its reputation for bringing adventurers closer to nature, Steiner Optics has developed a line of high-performance binoculars specifically designed for birders and outdoor enthusiasts. Named after the small, swift and skilled hunting falcon that uses keen eyesight to track prey, the Steiner Peregrine is a compact, roof-prism binocular that offers excellent light transmission and exceptionally sharp optics.
Working closely with its championship birding team and experts at the American Birding Association, Steiner engineered the Peregrine to deliver exactly what serious birders and nature lovers want – a lightweight, comfortable binocular with a precision close-focus system that resists the elements and allows for uninterrupted, extended viewing.
“With input from a panel of birding experts, we worked with our optical engineers to create a binocular especially made for bird observation and all-purpose outdoor use,” said Sven Harms, vice president, sales and marketing for Pioneer Research, U.S. distributor for Steiner Optics. “The Peregrine has all the features that serious birders and nature observers demand.”
Since birds are often visible for only seconds, observing their true colors in bright contrast and clearly identifying the most subtle color difference is extremely important to birders, according
to Steiner’s studies conducted with amateur birders and ornithologists in the USA and in Europe. To help achieve a new level of brightness, Steiner equipped the Peregrines with a dielectric prism coating, through which over 40 layers of silicon and titanium are alternatively applied to the glass surface. This “Broad-Band Coating” (BBC) results in superior light reflection over a broader range of colors, compared to binoculars without the coating. The Peregrines are also phase corrected for sharpest possible, distortion-free images.
The Peregrine features a large, fast and very smooth center-focus wheel that focuses from 6 feet to infinity with just a touch of the finger tip, an important feature for quick bird identification. With the lightest weight in its class and soft, non-slip rubber armoring, the Peregrine is comfortable and stable to hold. The comfort level is further enhanced by soft, face-shaped eye cups that feel good and prevent side light from entering and disturbing the image.
Steiner-Germany is the world’s leading specialized binocular manufacturer, with a particular expertise in lens and prism manufacturing and lens coatings that are “tuned” to the observed target object. Steiner’s hunting binoculars favor the color of game at dusk and dawn, its marine binoculars reject blue haze and water reflections and its military binoculars reject enemy lasers and allow observation in near-darkness. The company’s new binoculars are adept at helping users quickly identify subtle true color differences of birds and other wildlife against the shade of dense foliage. Also, in the Steiner tradition, these new binoculars are waterproof and rugged and maintain their sharpness for many years.
Available in 8x42 and 10x42 models, the Peregrine is shockproof, fogproof and Mil.-spec waterproof, maintaining its peak performance at any temperature and under any conditions. Its rugged, UV- resistant rubber armoring is nearly impervious to dust, moisture and even rough handling.
The Peregrine’s dark-green, light-absorbing rubber body blends in with natural surroundings, providing an advantage when glassing for easily spooked species. And, with close-focus ranges as low as 5.5 feet, the Peregrine helps users detect color variations even in unexpected nearby encounters with birds.
