Leupold 170734 overview

  • 1Description

The angled viewing SX-2 Kenai 2 25-60x80 HD Spotting Scope Kit from Leupold features an objective lens that is constructed from high-quality glass with specialized optical coatings to provide clear and bright images. The lens elements are made of lead-free, Extra-low Dispersion (ED), calcium-fluoride glass to correct for chromatic aberrations, increase contrast, and improve color rendition. Additionally, they are multi-coated to prevent internal ghosting and reflections. These coatings are highly reflective and minimize the loss of light while further boosting contrast and color fidelity. To further ensure sharpness and accurate color across the entire visible spectrum, this spotting scope features BAK4 prisms and an eyepiece with rare earth element-coated lenses. The highly refractive BAK4 prisms minimize spherical aberrations for increased edge-to-edge sharpness and help improve depth of view. This combination of coatings and optics creates a spotting scope that produces bright, clear, highly contrasted images with accurate color transmission.

This SX-2 Kenai 2 25-60x80 HD Spotting Scope's lightweight magnesium-alloy body is nitrogen-filled and is both water and fogproof. The GuardION lens coating associated with SX-2 Kenai 2 spotting scopes results in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency. While the included 25-60x eyepiece provides a linear field of view of 125.7-41.9' at 1,000 yards, a separately-available fixed magnification 30x eyepiece enables a wider field of view. The scope's tripod mounting shoe also accepts a 1/4"-20 mounting bolt, and a retractable lens shade keeps the Sun or rain off the objective lens.

This kit includes both a soft and hard case for storage and transport, a tiltable tripod with adjustable legs, and a smartphone digiscoping adapter.

    SX-2 Kenai 2 25-60x80 HD Spotting Scope Kit (Angled Viewing) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended. With only a short time to evaluate, I am pleased. Even on a cloudy day, the image is bright and sharp. I saw no chromatic aberration at maximum magnification. I could read small thin ball point pen markings on my target at 100 yards and bugs on 40 foot tree tops from 30 yards out. .22 caliber holes at 100 yards were easy to see on black or white backgrounds, even with these 63 year old eyes. This scope needs a stable base, even with the sturdy table top tripod especially at maximum zoom. I can't imagine how spending 3 to 4 times as much could get a better image.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope for birders Excellent optics for very crisp viewing. The added component to be able to attach your iPhone for viewing is a nice add though the phone part isn't that secure. Highly recommend the scope for birders with the great lens. Also love the case that the lens came with. In the instructions it would be nice to identify all the scope parts. Same for the tripod.
