Product Details

In addition to actual distance measurement, height, vertical separation (difference in height between two targets), horizontal distance and angle can be easily measured.
Two measurement modes (Target Priority Switch System) are available:
First Target Priority Mode displays the range to the nearest target taken from multiple results obtained with a single measurement.
Distant Target Priority Mode displays the range to the farthest target taken from multiple results obtained with a single measurement—especially useful for forestry and hunting.
Waterproof (up to 1 meter for 10 minutes) but not for underwater usage. The battery chamber is water resistant.
Capable of measuring different distances in succession, for up to 20 seconds, when the button is held down.
The results are displayed on both internal and external LCD panels. The external LCD panel displays all results simultaneously.
High quality 6x monocular with multilayer coating produces bright images.
High-eyepoint design allows easy viewing even with eyeglasses.
Measurement range: 10-500 m/11-550 yd./33-999 ft.
