Hawke Sport Optics Endurance 16-48x68 Spotting Scope (Angled Viewing)
Key Features
  • Angled Viewing
  • 16-48x Zoom Eyepiece
  • 68mm Objective Lens
  • Dielectric-Coated, BAK4 Porro Prisms
The angled viewing Endurance 16-48x68 Spotting Scope from Hawke Sport Optics features high-quality glass with specialized optical coatings to provide clear and bright images. The lens elements are multi-coated to prevent internal ghosting and reflections. To ensure accurate color across the entire visible spectrum, the BAK4 Porro prisms are dielectric coated. These coatings are highly reflective and minimize the loss of light while further boosting contrast and color fidelity. Highly refractive BAK4 Porro prisms minimize spherical aberrations for increased edge-to-edge sharpness and create a better depth of view over roof prisms. This combination of coatings and optics creates a spotting scope that produces bright, clear, highly contrasted images with accurate color transmission.

The angled viewing Endurance 16-48x68 Spotting Scope from Hawke Sport Optics features high-quality glass with specialized optical coatings to provide clear and bright images. The lens elements are multi-coated to prevent internal ghosting and reflections. To ensure accurate color across the entire visible spectrum, the BAK4 Porro prisms are dielectric coated. These coatings are highly reflective and minimize the loss of light while further boosting contrast and color fidelity. Highly refractive BAK4 Porro prisms minimize spherical aberrations for increased edge-to-edge sharpness and create a better depth of view over roof prisms. This combination of coatings and optics creates a spotting scope that produces bright, clear, highly contrasted images with accurate color transmission.

The chassis is made of polycarbonate, which is corrosion, impact, and temperature resistant, and the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof even in extreme weather conditions. This iteration of the Endurance has a two-speed focusing system to allow for fast coarse and precision fine focusing, making it a perfect complement to the wide zoom range. The angled-viewing configuration sets the eyepiece at a 45° angle to the scope's body, which places your head in a more comfortable viewing position versus straight-through viewing models. A 1/4"-20 mount makes it compatible with many tripods, quick-release plates, and other popular support systems like window mounts.
