Opticron HR80 GA ED Angled Spotting Scope Body Only
Smaller, lighter and sharper the new HR ED fieldscopes offer a host of improvements over preceding models and have been redesigned without compromise to deliver truly exceptional optical performance combined with sublime handling and complete reliability.
Aimed squarely at the serious fieldscope user, the models are built to withstand extremes in temperature, to operate unaffected by rain, cold or humidity and as such can be used anywhere from equatorial rainforests to the poles. The choice of body types, viewing eyepieces and dedicated accessories for observation and photography are unparalleled and combine to create the most versatile and complete range of fieldscopes we have ever produced.
The reconfigured optical systems deliver the highest resolution of any Opticron telescope and are matched directly to the SDL zoom eyepiece for constant focus across the magnification range 18-54x (66)/24-72x (80). Both the 66mm and 80mm feature a high definition 5 element apochromat objective lens system with 2 separate ED elements, and Opticron N-type multi-coating. The combination maximises resolution and colour contrast - especially at higher magnifications across a wide range of different light conditions.
The advantages of ED
By using an ED or 'extra low dispersion' glass element in the primary objective system, these fieldscopes provide a higher degree of colour correction when compared to conventional glass objectives. More apparent at higher magnifications and under certain light conditions (e.g. when looking over water on a bright warm day) the image appears sharper and colours remain truer to life across the magnification range.
The ability to bring into clear and sharp focus indistinct objects such as coloured identification rings or shades of plumage in poor light over long distances are the hallmarks of an HR ED fieldscope. This extra optical clarity combined with all the features and exceptional build quality make them the definitive choice for the professional ornithologist.
