Swarovski ATX/STX/BTX 95mm Objective Lens Module (Eyepiece Module Required)
Key Features
  • Eyepiece Module Required
  • 95mm Objective Lens
  • Field-Flattener Lens System
  • Extra-Low Dispersion Fluoride HD Glass
Representing the second largest objective option in their line of modular spotting scopes, the Swarovski Optik ATX/STX/BTX 95mm Objective Lens Module gets an updated tripod shoe that fits Arca-Swiss quick release plates, and will accept any of the three available eyepiece modules: straight (STX) or angled-viewing (ATX), or the binocular viewer (BTX). The bayonet mount for the eyepiece modules is backward compatible with the original ATX/STX modules, to make it easy for users to upgrade their objectives without needing a new eyepiece module. This larger objective versus the 65mm and 85mm models draws in more light and produces a larger exit pupil to improve its low-light capabilities and make it an invaluable companion from the pre-dawn hours to all the way past dusk.

Representing the second largest objective option in their line of modular spotting scopes, the Swarovski Optik ATX/STX/BTX 95mm Objective Lens Module gets an updated tripod shoe that fits Arca-Swiss quick release plates, and will accept any of the three available eyepiece modules: straight (STX) or angled-viewing (ATX), or the binocular viewer (BTX). The bayonet mount for the eyepiece modules is backward compatible with the original ATX/STX modules, to make it easy for users to upgrade their objectives without needing a new eyepiece module. This larger objective versus the 65mm and 85mm models draws in more light and produces a larger exit pupil to improve its low-light capabilities and make it an invaluable companion from the pre-dawn hours to all the way past dusk.

Optically, Swarovski combines the legendary image quality and world-class workmanship that nature enthusiasts, tactical professionals, and researchers have come to expect from the brand. The 95mm objective strikes a nice balance between light-gathering ability and portability, making it well suited for the hunter, outdoor enthusiast, or birder. Extra-low dispersion fluoride glass elements efficiently transmit all wavelengths of visible light, resulting in bright images that are color faithful, crisp, and rich with detail. An integrated field-flattener lens system corrects spherical aberrations to reveal crisp details at the edges of the view without distortion. SWARODUR and SWAROTOP coatings on all lenses and prisms minimize glare while maximizing contrast.

Complementing the optical performance and technologies is a lightweight and durable magnesium-alloy chassis that is wrapped in a protective rubber armor. Its optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be dustproof, waterproof and submersible, and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes or environmental conditions. The tripod collar has a 1/4"-20 socket on the bottom of the Arca-Swiss-compatible shoe and a rotating collar to allow for precise eyepiece placement relative to the mounting system.

Optical Performance

  • Optional eyepiece module required: straight (STX) or angled (ATX) viewing and binocular viewer (BTX) available
  • Large 95mm objective lens draws in more light than smaller modules and produces a larger exit pupil for improved low-light performance
  • Extra-low dispersion fluoride HD glass limits chromatic aberrations to produce clearer and sharper views with little or no color fringing
  • Field-flattener lens system eliminates spherical aberrations to eliminate distortion at the edges of the field of view
  • Anti-reflection SWAROTOP lens coatings reduce glare and improve contrast, color rendition, and clarity
  • Scratch-resistant SWARODUR coatings protect exterior lens surfaces

Use and Handling

  • Large focusing collar is easy to manipulate even when wearing gloves
  • Rotating tripod mount allows for precise eyepiece placement
  • M97x0.75 objective lens filter thread
  • Tripod shoe is compatible with Arca-Swiss quick release plates; standard 1/4"-20 socket on bottom of shoe

Construction Details

  • Lightweight and impact-resistant magnesium-alloy housing
  • Rubber armor protects against impacts while providing a slip-resistant grip for more secure handling during setup and breakdown
  • SWAROCLEAN non-stick coating on exposed lens surfaces allows sap and oils to be easily cleaned for clearer views
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be dustproof, waterproof/submersible to 13', and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature changes or environmental conditions
  • Broad -13 to 131°F operating temperature range

Reviewer Cynthia said, "and you can't carry it attached to your tripod like you can with other scopes". Is this true? I need a scope I can carry on the tripod constantly, and weight is not an issue. Would this scope qualify? Thank you for any info you can provide.
Asked by: Steve
You can carry it on a tripod. The scope weighs 3 lbs without the eyepiece. I would not suggest it because of it being more prone to being hit while carrying it.

Is there any difference in image quality between an angled or straight viewing eye piece?
Asked by: Albert
Hello, There is no difference in image quality, only in how you place your eye to look through the spotter. The straight eyepiece is coaxial with the field of view, so it's more intuitive, but the angled is more forgiving in field positions. Best Regards, David Eickelmann, Swarovski Optik North America.

The scope weigh is 3 lbs. without the eyepiece. You can leave it attached to the tripod but I would not recommend it. Makes it difficult to carry.

question

1- could you let me know the size of the filter I can put in front of the 95mm objective?
Asked by: Jeremiah
Hello Jeremiah - My apologies for the delay in responding - I did not get the notification. The 95mm Modular Objective can accept a 97mm filter size, which is a VERY uncommon size. Here is the bottom line, even if you were able to source out a 97mm filter, or use a 105mm filter and a step-down ring: there are no filters currently on the market that will not adversely affect the optical performance of the spotting scope. Thinking this through: a $400 filter used on a Canon 800mm f/5/6 lens is only having to work with a 16x lens magnification. It is a perfectly good optical system. That same filter quality attached to the 95mm scope now has to deliver top optical quality at 70x!!! If you want to use the filter as protection for the scope front element, you will be adversely affecting image quality by doing so. My tip - slide out the retractable sunshade when you are using the spotting scope in the field, and it will be less likely for you to scratch or damage the scope lens.
