Binocular Viewer Features

Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center
Ilwaco, WA

Standard features in our coin-operated and free-use binocular viewers include:

Binocular
Our manual-focus, 10x42 binocular provides magnification 10 times greater than is seen by the unaided eye. The prism design produces sharp, well-defined images by virtually eliminating internal light scattering. A wide field of view (318 feet @ 1,000 yards) provides for easy location of objects.

Weatherproof Components
The unit has a chromium-plated, cast bronze housing with internal components of bronze and stainless steel. The cast iron base is painted with a weather-resistant, oil-based enamel.

Compact Design
The compact design allows full circle-turns with little risk of injury. Textured stationary step-up rings help to provide sure footing and easy viewer access.

Rotational Angles
Full-circle rotation provides a wide range of viewing opportunities. The viewer tilts 45º up and 22º down.

Viewing Guide
Interesting points of view are easily located and identified using our unique, customizable directory.

The following features are exclusive to our coin-operated viewer:

Coin Mechanism
The manually operated, mechanical coin mechanism requires no battery or power source.

Coin Activation
Each viewer is factory preset to operate on either one or two quarters.

Recording Meter
This meter provides an effective way to verify viewer receipts by accurately tracking viewer usage.
