Athlon Optics Cronus Tactical overview

  • 1Description

Designed to deliver the peak performance required for hunters, shooters, and tactical professionals, the tan straight-through viewing Athlon Optics Cronus Tactical 7-42x60 Spotting Scope has the power and durability that will make it your constant companion in the field, at the range, or in critical situations.

This scope employs fully multi-coated, extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lens elements set in an apochromatic configuration that eliminates spherical and chromatic aberrations. When combined with its large broad-band anti-reflection fully coated objective, the results are bright and clear tack-sharp, high-contrast images with accurate color fidelity without distortion across the entire field of view. The exceptional zoom range is optimized for close-to-extreme long range. This allows you to take in a wide field of view for general viewing purposes, with the ability to draw subjects in close for more detailed observations.

The non-illuminated mil-dot ranging reticle can be used to estimate the size of, and distance to, your target and calculate ballistic drop, greatly increasing first-shot accuracy. The reticle is placed on the first focal plane so its size remains in proportion to the magnification selected and its subtensions are accurate throughout the entire zoom range. Keeping the crosshairs and markers thin, with an open upper half, ensures an uncluttered and clear view. For increased accuracy during use, a Picatinny rail and riser mount are included that will accommodate an optional Athlon rangefinder or other accessories such as lights or illuminators.

This version of the Cronus is configured with the eyepiece set in line with the optical tube to make finding your subject fast and tracking moving subjects easy. To withstand the rigors of the trail, range, or blind, Athlon built the chassis out of a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy and wrapped it in a protective tan rubber armor. The large focusing collar is slip resistant, making it easy to achieve a sharp focus in cold and wet weather or while wearing gloves. The optical tube is argon filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging if it should accidentally get dropped in a puddle or stream. A custom-made stay-on/view-through nylon case is included that makes setup and breakdown on a tripod or other support system fast and easy while adding another layer of protection and providing the ability to react quickly when opportunities present themselves.

Optical Performance
  • Wide 7-42x zoom range is ideal for mid- to extreme long-range use
  • Large 60mm objective is optimized for low-light conditions, such as at dawn or dusk
  • Extra-low dispersion (ED) lens glass corrects chromatic aberrations to transmit accurate colors without fringing or halos
  • Apochromatic lens configuration eliminates spherical aberrations that cause distortion at the edges of the field of view and further corrects chromatic aberration
  • Broadband anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics maximize light transmission and improve contrast and color fidelity across the entire visible spectrum
  • Proprietary XPL exterior lens coatings resist scratches and abrasions while allowing oil, dirt, and sap to be cleaned off without leaving smudges or residue
  • 284-foot field of view at 1000 yards at 7x; 48 feet at 42x
TSSR Ranging Reticle
  • First focal plane placement ensures reticle subtensions remain accurate at all magnifications
  • At low power the reticle resembles a basic modified crosshair reticle for fast acquisition and tracking at close to mid-range
  • Versatile mil-dot ranging design enables precise first-shot placement, range estimation, and distance estimation
  • Thin hairs on horizontal and lower vertical axes leave upper half of view uncluttered
  • 0.2-mil hash marks from the center on all three axes with 0.1-mil increments between the 5- and 6-mil markers for improved measurement precision
  • Use to estimate ballistic drop compensation (BDC) and recommend impact point correction for increased first-shot accuracy at long range
  • Use to estimate range to, and size of, target
  • Optimized for hunters, shooters, and tactical professionals
Use and Handling
  • Eyepiece set in-line with optical tube for faster target acquisition and tracking, with a lower profile versus angled-viewing models
  • Single-speed slip-resistant focusing collar is easy to manipulate in cold or wet weather and while wearing gloves
  • Twist-up rubber eyecup for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Standard 1/4"-20 mount is compatible with a wide variety of quick-release plates, heads, and photo/video/field tripods
  • Long eye relief at all magnifications allows for more comfortable viewing with reduced eyestrain, especially during long-duration glassing sessions
  • Wide 5.2mm exit pupil at 7x will completely cover most pupils as they open and dilate in low light to keep the entire scene in view without vignetting
Construction Details
  • Mounting points for rails allow the use of accessories such as rangefinders, illuminators, and lights
  • Picatinny rail with riser mount accommodates optional rangefinder for improved accuracy
  • Durable aluminum alloy chassis reduces weight without sacrificing strength and resilience
  • Protective tan rubber armoring protects against impacts and bumps
  • Argon filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature and environmental conditions
  • Stay-on/view-through soft carrying case adds protection from impacts while allowing fast setup and breakdown in the field
