Isn’t it about time your binoculars caught up to the 21st Century? The Cavalry 7×50 Binocular is equipped with GPS, Digital Compass, and even a Reticle! The built in LCD screen has three modes: GPS, Digital Compass, and Level. The digital compass gives True North, instead of magnetic North, and provides compass direction readings in both mils and degrees. The level function is a digital level to allow you to perfectly level the binoculars. It’s all powered by a commonly available, CR123A lithium battery that can be purchased at a hardware or general store.
The integrated Reticle allows you to estimate the size and distance of an object you are observing. It is measured in 5mil increments and for increased accuracy the last 5mil on the vertical/horizontal scales are broken down into 1mil and 0.5mil increments. You use the reticle with the simple formula: Target Size (meters) X 1000 divided by number of observed mils = range to target in meters (Target Size (Yards) X 1000 divided by number of observed mils = distance to target in yards). You can use similar equations in the instruction booklet to calculate the size of the target if you know the distance. If you don’t feel like doing the math, there’s even a Calculator Dial to do the work for you.
Celestron’s rugged Cavalry Series is a binocular designed for outdoorsmen and boaters. Engineered to withstand the elements, Cavalry is fully waterproof and nitrogen purged to prevent internal fogging. The housing is protected by durable rubber armor, making the binoculars easy to grip. These binoculars are waterproof and can take a dunking, but all the same we don’t recommend you store them in a creek. As an optical instrument, Cavalry offers professional features including high-grade BaK-4 prisms and fully multi-coated optics for superb light transmission.
