Tasco 12×50 Essentials Porro Binoculars

Bring distant animals, beasts, or boats in close to make detailed observations with the black Tasco 12×50 Essentials Porro Binoculars. Anti-reflection fully coated optics improve light transmission, color, and clarity; while a traditional BK7 Porro prism optical path and wide apparent angle of view help to provide an immersive observational experience with a rich depth of field and reduced appearance of visible hand shake common to high-power optics such as these.
