Leupold SX-5 Santiam overview

  • 1Description

Sporting a large oversized objective, a powerful zoom magnification range, extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, and the proprietary Twilight Max HD Lens System, the straight-through viewing Leupold SX-5 Santiam HD 27-55x80mm Spotting Scope delivers bright high-contrast images with true-to-life color and crisp clarity even when observing from extremely long distances.

Image quality is enhanced through the use of lead-free high-transmittance calcium fluoride glass, which, by its nature, limits reflection and increases color fidelity and contrast. The Twilight Max HD system complements the glass with index-matched lens coatings that are specifically engineered for the calcium fluoride lenses to raise the already high transmittance across the entire visible spectrum—with special emphasis on the blue and violet wavelengths that are most prevalent in low light, such as at dawn and dusk and under heavily canopied forests. Its large 80mm objective gathers generous amounts of light to further boost performance in less-than-ideal conditions and to keep views bright and crisp even when the magnification is set to max and you are viewing objects at very long distances.

Designed to stand up to a life lived outdoors, the optical tube is nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to make it water and fogproof, even when moving through extreme temperature variations. The chassis is made from an aluminum alloy to help offset the added weight from the large objective and ED glass. A rotating tripod mount collar enables you to place the eyepiece in the optimal position for comfortable viewing, and its standard 1/4"-20 mount is compatible with a wide variety of photo/video/field tripods, heads, and quick release plates. To make setup and breakdown fast so you can quickly react when spotting opportunities present themselves in the field, Leupold includes a soft stay-on/view-through case that provides complete access to all the controls without having to remove it from the scope when in use.

Optical Performance
  • Powerful 27-55x magnification range is specifically designed for long-range use in all light conditions
  • Large 80mm objective lens is optimized for low-light conditions and ensures views remain bright and clear even when viewing subjects at extreme long range and at high magnification
  • Extra-low dispersion (ED) high-definition (HD) lenses improve image clarity, contrast, and color
  • Lead-free broadband high-transmittance calcium fluoride glass lens elements produce bright and clear images with accurate color rendition and improved contrast
  • DiamondCoat 2 full multi-coating offers scratch and abrasion resistance and further improves light transmission, image brightness, color, clarity, and contrast
  • Twilight Lens System employs index-matched multi-coatings that complement the optical glass to ensure maximum light transmission across the entire visual spectrum, especially the upper blue/violet range to enhance low-light vision
  • Guard-Ion rain-shedding lens coating is extremely durable and scratch resistant and allows dirt and oils (like fingerprints) to be easily cleaned off without leaving smudges
  • 105' field of view at 1000 yards on 27x, 73' at 55x
Use and Handling
  • Eyepiece set in-line with the optical tube to make finding subjects fast and tracking moving targets easy
  • Large textured focusing collar is easy to manipulate even in cold and wet weather, or while wearing gloves
  • Smooth focusing system provides precise focusing with the ability to resolve tack-sharp images
  • Rotating tripod mount collar enables you to precisely place the eyepiece for the most comfortable viewing position
  • 1/4"-20 tripod mount is compatible with most photo/video/field tripods, heads, and quick release plates
  • Twist-up eyecup for comfortable viewing with or without eyewear
  • Long 19.2mm eye relief at low power improves viewing comfort and reduces eyestrain; 16.6mm at high power is still extremely comfortable and easy to view through for long periods of time
  • 2.9-1.5mm exit pupil range
Construction Details
  • Lightweight and durable aluminum-alloy housing helps to offset the added weight of the large objective lens system
  • Protective armoring with textured details at natural hand positions offers slip-resistant handling during setup and breakdown
  • Nitrogen filled to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging even in extreme conditions
  • Retractable sunshade reduces glare and lens flare in bright conditions and keeps the lens protected and dry in the rain and snow
  • Stay-on/view-through soft carrying case offers additional protection while allowing fast setup and breakdown with high mobility
