The 20-60×82 Sport ED Spotting Scope is our finest and most-powerful spotting scope! Just like the Sport ED binoculars and the 15-45×65 Spotting Scope, this spotting scope features ED (extra-low dispersion) objectives, which means chromatic aberration, or false color, is eliminated from the view. With standard non-ED (achromatic) optics, chromatic aberration worsens as magnification increases, so ED glass is especially desirable at the upper end of the magnification range. This scope is the perfect choice for advanced-level bird-watching and wildlife viewing, or for any type of viewing where flawless color rendition is necessary.
Low-reflection broadband multi-coating is used on every air-to-glass surface and prisms are dielectric coated. Light loss due to reflection and scattering is minimized, providing the highest level of light transmission possible. This scope features magnesium construction with dark green rubber armor, with attractive red-anodized aluminum accents. A precise dual-speed focuser gets you focused on target quickly. The twist-up eyecup and slide-out glare shield are silky-smooth. A form-fitting weather-proof cover is included, with access panels that allow full use of scope while covered.
Compare the features and specs of our spotting scopes to the competition, and you’ll see they are a remarkable value.
