Its wide exit pupil and long eye relief, when coupled with the enhanced light-gathering ability of the objectives, makes it ideal for use in all light conditions from the pre-dawn hours through the day and well into dusk. Complementing these features are compact BAK4 roof prisms and anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, which maximize light transmission and produce high-contrast images with accurate color fidelity and improved clarity.
To withstand the rigors of the trail, Carson nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed the optical tubes to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging in extreme temperature and weather conditions. The chassis is wrapped in a protective rubber armor that is textured to provide a slip-resistant grip in cold and wet weather. For long-duration glassing sessions at the range, in a blind, or on a patio, the JR Close-Up can be tripod mounted with an optional adapter to provide easy hands-free use with greatly reduced vibrations and no arm fatigue. Ideal for hiking and boating, Carson includes tethered objective lens covers and an ocular rainguard to protect exposed lens surfaces and stay close at hand without the risk of losing them.
