The Geoma II ED 16-48x67 Spotting Scope from Vixen features a mid-sized 67mm objective lens and a 16-48x zoom eyepiece. Most noticeable is the advanced capability of the extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lens to accurately align colors. When compared side by side with non-ED optics, this fine spotting scope shows a sharp increase in edge-delineation and color-fidelity that is readily apparent.
This Geoma II ED sports a mid-sized 67mm objective, and it's fitted with a 16-48x zoom eyepiece. This configuration yields an average field of view across the zoom range, with a very respectable 19mm of eye relief. This particular Geoma II offers straight-through viewing, and the housing rotates in its tripod mounting collar for ease of long-term viewing comfort.
The Geoma II ED features a sealed fiberglass housing that is filled with dry nitrogen for water and fogproof performance in spite of fluctuating temperatures and dynamic climates. The retractable sun shade can be used to block stray light, or to minimize water-droplet build-up on the objective.
The Geoma II ED's handling and performance are quite remarkable - a dual-focus system enables rapid zone-focus, along with a precision fine-focus. This makes getting on-target fast and effortless, while offering enhanced precision focusing. With its sophisticated and superior optical design and precision-ground multicoated lenses, the Geoma II ED 67-S delivers crystal-clear views and high resolution imagery.
