Athlon Optics Ares overview

  • 1Description

At less than 7 inches long, the angled-viewing Athlon Optics Ares 7.5-22.5x50 Spotting Scope will be your constant companion wherever you go to glass.

This scope employs fully multi-coated, extra-low dispersion glass lens elements set in an apochromatic configuration that eliminates spherical and chromatic aberrations. When combined with its dielectric-coated BAK4 prism system, the results are bright and clear tack-sharp, high-contrast images with accurate color fidelity without distortion across the entire field of view. The broad zoom range 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. This version of the Ares is configured with the eyepiece set at a 45° angle relative to the optical tube to place your head in a comfortable viewing position whether you're standing, sitting, or lying prone.

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 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. Designed for maximum portability and ease of use, this version of the Ares measures under 7" long and weighs less than 19 ounces to make it easy to pack and carry and quick to set up and break down.

Optical Performance
  • 7.5-22.5x zoom range is ideal for mid-range use
  • Large 50mm lens is optimized for use in challenging light conditions such as at dawn and dusk, or under heavy cloud cover
  • BAK4 prism glass delivers a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Dielectric prism coatings boost surface reflectivity to greater than 99% for maximum light transmission through the prism, with minimal loss and diffraction
  • 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
  • 265-foot field of view at 1000 yards at 7.5x; 116 feet at 22.5x
Use and Handling
  • Eyepiece is set at 45° to optical tube for easier and more comfortable viewing when sitting, standing, or lying prone and allows a lower tripod height for improved stability
  • Large slip-resistant focusing collar is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather or 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
  • Rotating tripod collar allows user to precisely adjust the eyepiece position relative to tripod head
  • Long eye relief at all magnifications allows for more comfortable viewing with reduced eyestrain, especially during long-duration glassing sessions
  • Wide 6.7mm exit pupil at 7.5x will cover most pupils as they open and dilate in low light to keep the whole scene in view without vignetting
Construction Details
  • Extremely compact design measures less than 7" long for ultra portability and ease of use
  • Lightweight and durable aluminum alloy chassis
  • Protective rubber armoring safeguards 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
