6Discovery The advantages at a glance
Comfort Balance System by STEINER
The STEINER Comfort Balance System guarantees comfortable han-dling.
Our novel Softgrips for your thumbs ideally com-bine comfort with a firm grip on the binoculars. The lightweight and comfortable feel eliminates pressure points, particularly if you are observing for longer periods, for example when carrying out
a bird population census. At the same time, they give the Discovery excellent balance.
The novel Twist-Up Eyecups offer optimum pro-tection against incidental light from the side. They dont just block troublesome reflections; they en-sure an extremely bright image. The three posi-tions of the eyecups offer an ergonomic, a classic
cylindrical and a position for people wearing glasses. If the eyecups do not fit exactly to your eyes, they can be adjusted as desired by the eyecup fine adjustment mechanism.
A small adjustment of the focussing wheel with your fingers is all thats needed to recognise de-tails of the bird quickly and with absolute sharp-ness. The Discoverys Fast- Close-Focus completely does away with the need for clumsy and time-
intensive turning of the focussing wheel. With a close focus range of two metres, the Discovery provides extremely comfortable handling with perfect focussing in an unbelievably short time.
High-Performance-Optics by STEINER
STEINER developed these remarkable optics. The optical formula is our own development using the purest index matched glass, and coatings using rare-earth formulations of titanium, fluorite and other mineral substrates. The resultis first-class
light transmission, brightness and optimal contrast. The Discoverys roof prism system contains a specially developed dielectric mirror with a vapour-deposited phase correction coating. This high-tech phase correction gives exact resolution of detail and true colours. It also reflects up to 99% of incoming light. In addition, the dielectric mirrors prevent aging of the coating. Aging also means that there is a loss of light transmission after some time. The contours of these optics are always sharp and distinctly visible, even in poor light or at the onset of dusk.
The perfectly adjusted distance of the exit pupil and the large diam-eter of the ocular lens provides you with relaxed and exact observ-ing experiences. You gain an into-the-image feeling, but you also achieve the highest comfort, even when viewing with low light or peripheral interference. The large above-average objective diameter of 44 mm guarantees clear, detailed and brilliant observation.
Dual Precision Setting
The Discovery delivers sharper images than any other binoculars thanks to its Dual Precision Set-ting. No other birding binoculars allow you to focus both eyes independently of each other. Its done directly at the ocular, and thus a perfect im-
age is created for each eye. The Dual Precision Setting allows mas-sive differences in dioptre strength on each eye to be compensated for. Simply set the dioptre strength for each eye and you will always see sharply without having to readjust. Those without vision impair-ment simply set the control to 0.
Distance Control System
The Distance Control System guarantees fast and easy recognition of birds. Focussing takes place before you hold the Discovery up for viewing. When observing, the distance to the bird it can be read off in the binoculars at any time. If desired
you can preset the distance even before you start looking at the bird. This gives you more valuable time for identification.
7Ruggedness by STEINER
Unsurpassed clear vision is offered by the proven STEINER Nano-Protection. It provides the lenses with a dirt and water resistant surface, protecting them against aggressive environmental effects. Rain, snow and moisture are eliminated from your
view. Cleaning is considerably simplified and hard-to-remove dirt becomes a thing of the past. The ultra-thin hydrophobic surface treatment on the objective and ocular lenses is extremely robust and ensures that your binoculars will deliver high-contrast brilliant im-ages across the decades.
Nitrogen pressure system using 2-way-valve technology
Fogging up or the formation of condensation in-side the binoculars is totally prevented by this high-tech solution. Even temperature variations between -40 and +80C do not have any adverse effects on the functionality of STEINER nitrogen-
filled binoculars. The unique 2-way-valve technology makes inspec-tion possible even after a number of years. Your binoculars are al-ways ready for action even under the most extreme conditions. Optical quality and precision are maintained for decades.
The Discovery range is waterproof even up to a depth of five metres. This is made possible by special sealing technologies. No dust, no dirt and no humidity can penetrate into the binoculars.
