Opticron 40996 overview

  • 1Description

An upgrade from the smaller 60mm model, Opticron's straight viewing IS 70 R 70mm Spotting Scope together with optional zoom eyepiece will provide views that range from wide vistas at low power to high-detail views at its highest power. The fully multi-coated optics improve image resolution, contrast, and brightness. Its larger than average 70mm objective lens produces brighter images in low-light conditions at dawn and dusk or in heavily-canopied woods.

Complementing its optical performance is a lightweight and durable ABS polycarbonate housing. In addition to being impact and corrosion resistant, ABS is resistant to thermal fluctuations, which reduces chances of optical misalignment and consistent, sharp focus. A rotating tripod collar enables desired orientation relative to the tripod. Attached to the collar is a quick-release shoe with a 1/4"-20 threaded mount for attaching to a tripod.
