Superlative binoculars in every respect: developed for the longest distances, and even used on missions to the International Space Station (ISS). The exceptional light transmission of the Porro prism system guarantees the brightest viewing images with outstanding resolution of the finest details even at 20 × magnification. The technically unique mechanical image stabilisation system of the ZEISS 20×60 S Binoculars ensures a perfect viewing experience: the unavoidable shake always encountered when observing with handheld binoculars can be easily eliminated at the press of a button.
Features of the ZEISS 20×60 S Binoculars
- Porro Prisms
- Mechanical Image Stabilization
- Rubber Armoring
- Rubber Eyecups
- Water Resistant
The purely mechanical image stabilisation system with its gimbal-mounted spring joint and magnetic damping action works immediately at the touch of a button, noiselessly and without battery power. This results in a unique visual experience, such as you have never seen before – totally free of unavoidable hand tremor.
Extreme performance in magnification and lens diameter
The 20 x magnification of the ZEISS 20×60 S Binoculars provides an outstanding level of detail resolution. Even at long range you can identify the finest of details. Turn the identification of birds into a real pleasure and recognise even distant passing birds with ease. Extreme brightness is supplied by the 60 mm lens and Porro prism systems.
The image stabiliser is a mechanical masterpiece and naturally needs protection during harsh use, when idle or during transport. Secure, automatic locking of the moving parts when not in use and the solid, rubber armour of the metal casing serve to protect the internal optics and mechanics of the ZEISS 20×60 S Binoculars.
ZEISS T* Coating
ZEISS T* coating is a guarantee of the brilliant, high-contrast images which you will experience above all in adverse light conditions and in the twilight. Behind it, however, there is no specific formula for building up the layers. Instead, it is a technology that is constantly adjusted to suit new glass materials and requirements, which varies from lens to lens.
