Nikon ED50 Overview

The angled view Fieldscope ED50 13-30x50 Spotting Scope from Nikon is a compact and lightweight spotting scope with a 50mm ED (extra-low dispersion) objective lens for chromatic aberration. Nikon especially developed ED glass to provide precise optical color correction.

The ED50 scope is offered as straight or angled viewing design. Most users will prefer angled scopes because they are both simple to use for birds perched high above the viewer as well as easily simultaneously shared amongst users of differing heights. But some will prefer the straight viewing models, for these are much easier to use when hunting down the object of interest in the first place.

Nikon's Fieldscope line of spotting scopes are premium offerings to compete with the best of sports optics manufactured in Japan or Europe. You choose your options based on concerns for mass and budget: straight or angled, objective diameter, and whether to spring for the ED glass for more favorable appreciation of highly detailed subjects.

All of Nikon's spotting scope line is backed up by the "No-Fault" 25-year warranty. Regardless of what happens to your scope—even of your own negligence—Nikon will repair or replace (at their option) your scope for just $10 plus the return shipping costs.

Waterproof (up to 3.3'/1m for 5 minutes) and fog-free with nitrogen gas
Conventional six MC eyepieces and three Wide DS eyepieces are compatible
Multi-layer coated lenses
55mm filter attachable to the objective

question

Are there adapters for digiscoping w/ a Nikon DSLR (D750, perhaps)?
Asked by: Robert
Yes you will need a T Mount for your camera for digiscoping. This is the B&H part number for the T ring for your camera, B&H#KOTMN. When you get the T ring home before you can start digiscoping. You will need to take the lens off your camera and screw the T ring in it's place. The only other thing you will need is an adapter for the telescope you are using. The adapter will depend on the telescope you have. After you get the correct adapter attach it to the telescope and screw the camera onto the adapter. Then start shooting.

Does the Nikon Fieldscope ED50 13-30x50 Spotting Scope (for angled viewing) have a Arca-Swiss style quick-release mounting foot (that fits a Really Right Stuff tripod clamp)?
Asked by: Bryan
The foot on the Nikon scopes is not Arca compatible. So far very few brands make scopes with an Arca compatible foot. You can attach an Arca compatible plate to the foot to use it on your Really Right Stuff tripod.

What is the "padded case" that's listed as being included, please? Is this a box that's padded inside... or a soft pouch for carrying in the field?

question

Which eyepiece and tripod do you recommend for this scope?
Asked by: dianne s.
First ...this is an amazing scope ......superb clarity . We own 2 other scopes and this is the one that goes to the best destinations for birding......even when weight is not a factor .It is so light and compact , that it needs a light and compact tripod ....Gitzo Traveller is what we use , with a ball head . The combo will fit in a medium size daypack for hike to birding sites. The 13-30 eyepiece is fine......we added a lesser power fixed eyepiece ( less than 30 ) wide angle ....for scanning large expanses of marsh or lakes , but carry both for an occasional raptor in a distant tree , or a moose way across a lake .
