The straight view Endeavor HD 15-45x65 Spotting Scope from Vanguard combines a nitrogen-filled magnesium housing and a fully multicoated optical path to create a well-equipped zoom optic for intermediate to long-range observation. Vanguard gave the Endeavor HD series an extra-low dispersion (ED) lens system and phase-corrected BaK4 prisms, which maximize light transmission and produce color faithful images that are rich with contrast.

This version of the Endeavor HD spotting scope includes a 15-45x zoom eyepiece featuring a rubber zoom dial. A 1:3 zoom ratio and 2.7-1.3° angle of view complement the eyepiece's long 19mm eye relief and rubber eyecup, which help to provide additional viewing comfort for long-duration observations.

In addition to the image quality and weather-sealed construction, the Endeavor HD includes several features that enhance the scope's functionality. A stacked dual-focus mechanism enables the observer to make fine and coarse focus adjustments. The tripod mounting foot has a standard 1/4" socket and is compatible with Vanguard tripods that accept the universal mounting shoe. An integrated sunshade and included custom fit raincoat carrying case help to make the Endeavor HD a full-featured spotting scope for outdoor use.

          good quality and well priced

          By clance

          Comments about Vanguard Endeavor HD 15-45x65 Spotting Scope (Straight Viewing):

          This is a good mid priced scope. The fit and finish is flawless and the glass seems very nice, the eyepiece attaches with a reassuringly solid clunk reminiscent of a higher priced scope. The image is crisp and color reproductions is very accurate. The whole scope feels very well made and looks like it will last years of hard use. The cover that is included is ok, nothing special but also nothing wrong with it. The only real negatives I have are that I find focusing at higher magnification 30-45x quite touchy and that there is some chromatic aberration toward the edges at higher magnification too, both of these points are pretty picky though as this scope performs very nearly as well as scopes that are 4 ties the price. For the money I think this is an excellent buy, to get better you will pay considerably more

                Comments about Vanguard Endeavor HD 15-45x65 Spotting Scope (Straight Viewing):

                Mechanically and optically, I believe this scope is of exceptional quality. Focusing is precise and images are bright, sharp, with true color and contrast and any residual CA is negligible. The field of view is quite wide for a zoom eyepiece, even at the lowest magnification. I only have two complaints. There is only one threaded hole in the tripod collar and it is no where near the balance point, probably beyond the adjustment range of most tripods. The second complaint is the barrel of the eyepiece is ever so slightly larger than 1 1/4 inch. Had they made it exactly 1 1/4, a whole range of standard eyepieces could be used

                Comments about Vanguard Endeavor HD 15-45x65 Spotting Scope (Straight Viewing):

                This is the second spotting scope I've owned. After purchasing a Bushnell Elite, the clarity just wasn't there. I researched the web for weeks before I made this purchase. For the value, I personally don't think you can get a better set of optics. The Endeaver HD is extremely clear and crisp colors. Best of all, I really love the lifetime warranty for this spotting scope. Very simple operation. B&H Photo has the best price for these spotting scopes, period. The only and I mean only, down fall to these optics is that it is a little on the heavy side for carrying around. I rest assure that you will not be disappointed in this spotting scope.

                A well made scope, I mainly use it to glass clear cuts and distant hills. A little heavy for a pack scope but invaluable in the truck. High quality construction.
