The straight viewing SX-1 Ventana 15-45x60 Spotting Scope from Leupold is an intermediate to long-range scope featuring a rubber-armored weather-sealed housing and a multicoated optical path with BAK4 prisms. Leupold enhances the Ventana series optics using their proprietary Multicoat 4 lens coating, which reduces reflected light and helps to maximize the amount of light transmitted to the eyepiece. The included zoom eyepiece has a 27-24mm eye relief and a twist-up rubber eyecup, which provide a comfortable viewing distance even for eyeglass wearers. Additionally, BAK4 prism glass allows the SX-1 Ventana to render clear images that are rich with detail and contrast.
In addition to its optical performance, the SX-1 Ventana scope is equipped with a range of handling features that deliver a user-friendly glassing experience. Knurled ridges on the focusing dial and zoom ring provide tactile feedback that is especially useful when making field of view adjustments in wet conditions or while wearing gloves. The scope's integrated sun shade also has a raised gripping surface. Whether you need to spot a target downrange or get a close-up view of an exotic songbird, the scope's nitrogen-filled fogproof housing, built-in tripod mounting socket, and included zoom eyepiece help make the SX-1 Ventana a full-featured spotting scope for almost any glassing task.
