The angled view Regal M2 80ED Spotting Scope from Celestron combines a high-transmission optical path with a nitrogen-filled magnesium alloy housing to deliver reliable imaging performance at low light and in unforgiving weather conditions. At the core of the Regal M2 are fully multicoated optics, including BaK-4 prisms and an extra low dispersion (ED) glass objective that minimizes chromatic aberration and maximizes light gathering. Multiple layers of Celestron's proprietary XLT coating on each lens preserve brightness and transmit contrast-rich images to the eyepiece.

This version of the Regal M2 spotting scope includes a 20-60x eyepiece that is ideal for intermediate to long-range glassing. The broad magnification range, comfortable 20mm eye relief, and twist-up rubber eyecup make this zoom eyepiece well-suited for long-duration observations. The scope's standard 1.25" eyepiece mount will accept most astronomy eyepieces, which enables a near-infinite number of optical configurations.

Complementing the image quality and weather-sealed construction of the Regal M2, several features enhance the scope's functionality and observer's user-experience. An included T-adapter ring permits DSLR camera mounting to the objective assembly, transforming the 80ED into a high-transmission digiscoping platform. The rotating tripod collar has a 1/4" mounting socket and is detented at multiple positions to provide the observer with alternate viewing orientations. A sliding sunshade, sighting aid, and dual-focus mechanism equip the Regal M2 with the functionality needed for a wide range of outdoor glassing applications.

              Great scope for birding - excellent light gathering and clarity for much less money than big name scopes. A great buy for those that want good optics at a reasonable price

                Comments about Celestron Regal M2 80ED Spotting Scope with 20-60x Eyepiece (Angled Viewing):

                I have been in business for just over a year as a professional birding guide for IndiGo Birding Nature Tours. I have also been president of our local Audubon chapter. Celestron provides me with equipment for my clients to use, and I am often asked what optics I recommend. I have no reservations about promoting Celestron equipment. Other birders often comment about the superior image this scope produces: clear, bright, and sharp. It's relatively lightweight, easy to use, and handles the elements well. I had a hard time keeping the scope from getting loose on the tripod head at first, but super glue has solved that issue. I would also agree with another reviewer that the coarse focus knob is a little tight. Overall, the price, image, and ease-of-use make this scope a tremendous value!

                  For a reasonable price you get a very nice scope. Powerful enough to be very useful and keep you entertained from a good lookout for a long time.

                  Nice scope with tons of features , really like the fact that you can rotate the eyepiece around without having to take it off the tripod also the built in sun visor is really useful . Also comes with a quality padded protective carry case that can stay on while you using it in inclement weather

                        This spotting scope fits my birding requirements, the image was brighter than I expected and proved useful even at the highest magnification. The coarse focus knob is a little tight but can be used with one finger easily.
