Swarovski STR-65 overview

  • 1Description

Striking a delicate balance of light-gathering ability with portability, Swarovski Optik designed their STR-65 HD 65mm Spotting Scope as an indispensable companion in a blind or stand, or at the range. This version of the scope is outfitted with a modified duplex ranging reticle with 1/4 MOA indicators and stadia to assist in range and target-size estimation as well as ballistic drop compensation for long-distance shots. Running on one CR123 battery with an exceptionally long runtime, the reticle is illuminated in red with fifteen intensities: ten for daytime use and five for nighttime. The reticle, set on the first focal plane, retains its subtension accuracy at any magnification and can be completely removed from view to allow the scope to be used as a conventional spotter.

Optically the STR-65 performs up to Swarovski's high standards and expectations with extra low-dispersion fluoride glass elements that efficiently transmit all wavelengths of visible light, resulting in bright images that are color-faithful, crisp, and rich with detail; and SWARODUR and SWAROTOP coatings on all lenses and prisms minimize glare while maximizing contrast. This iteration is offered here without an eyepiece for those users who wish to choose one or both of the optional 25-50x wide-angle or 20-60x zoom eyepieces. To make acquiring subjects easy and tracking targets faster, the eyepiece is set in-line with the optical tube for straight-through viewing.

The aluminum alloy chassis is wrapped in a rubber armor that protects it from bumps and impacts, while offering a slip-resistant grip for sure handling during set up and breakdown. A rotating tripod collar is equipped with both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads to be compatible with most photo, video, and field tripods and other support systems. Its optical tube is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be to be dustproof, waterproof/submersible to 13' (4m), and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes or environmental conditions.
