Swarovski's 65mm STR 65 Spotting Scope combines a capable optic with an illuminated reticle to give you an ideal spotter for use at the range or on the trail to estimate distances or the size of objects. With a 65mm objective lens, fluoride glass, and multiple lens coatings, the scope produces images that are bright, clear, and distortion-free across the entire field of view with faithful color fidelity. The Porro prism design provides an enhanced depth of view that offers the user an immersive visual experience. There are two optional zoom eyepieces, available separately, to tailor the magnification to your specific preferences or requirements.
To expand the usability of the STR 65 is an illuminated ranging reticle. This duplex reticle has stadia markings set at 0.5 MRAD on the horizontal and vertical axes, with additional ranging markings on the lower left and right quadrants. The reticle is set on the front focal plane, so no matter what magnification the scope is set at, the ranging markings are accurate. There are 15 brightness settings for use at night or in full daylight. If the reticle is not needed, it can be turned off to completely remove it from sight.
Designed for a long life outdoors, the scope features a lightweight magnesium housing that is nitrogen-filled and o-ring sealed to be submersible to 13' and fogproof. Equipped with both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounts and a rotating tripod collar, it can be used with most video, photo, or field tripods and placed in the ideal orientation. A large focusing ring enables comfortable and precise focusing in all weather, with or without gloves. Its tethered objective lens cover ensures it won't get lost and is always at the ready when you need it.
