The straight view ProStaff 5 20-60x82 Spotting Scope Kit from Nikon is a variable magnification scope packaged with an adjustable tripod and other accessories needed to help you start making observations right out of the box. This scope features an integrated sliding sunshade that reduces glare and visual artifacts by blocking stray light from entering the field of view. The internal surface of the optical channel is textured to help minimize reflections and light loss that can diminish image brightness. Multicoated optics and the 82mm objective lens help transmit a detailed and contrast-rich image. The scope's weather sealed housing, included complement of accessories, and 20-60x zoom eyepiece make the ProStaff 5 Spotting Scope Kit ready for almost any long-range observing task.
