15x Magnification provides superb distance viewing of a wide range of activities for the hobbyist or professional. State-of-the-art technology make the 15x45 IS the perfect choice for any long distance need.
Built-in Image Stabilizer Technology, first developed for video camcorders and lenses, has been incorporated into the 15x45 IS to deliver shake-free performance. Independent sensors and a dedicated microprocessor continuously adjust the prism to maintain a steady image.
Advanced Optical Design utilizing ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass and Super Spectra Coating ensures clear images and accurate color.
The Large Diameter Objective Lens provides bright images, making the 15x45 IS the perfect choice for the star gazing enthusiast.
Doublet Field Flattener technology built into the eyepiece lens eliminates image distortion and curvature effects - even at the periphery.
Long 15mm Eye Relief means even eyeglass wearers can view the entire field without vignetting, thus minimizing eye strain.
Wide Field of View provides a more expansive view of 67 degrees, making it easy to locate subjects.
Advanced Ergonomic Design means the 15x45 IS is compact, lightweight, and easy to hold, tipping the scales at a mere 36 ounces. Its water resistant coating makes it ideal for marine use or in the rain.
