Nikon EDG overview

  • 1Description

With a host of great improvements upon an already-beloved scope (the Fieldscope 82 ED), the EDG Fieldscope 20-60x85 Spotting Scope Kit from Nikon has a streamlined, cutting-edge spotting scope for the most demanding of birders, hunters, and nature enthusiasts. It is a scope that can accompany you on most all-day hikes without weighing you down, and it provides incredible images for observing and/or capturing with digital cameras through any lighting condition.

In creating the straight-viewing 85mm EDG, Nikon employed all of the optical improvements found in the incredible EDG binoculars. As great as the Fieldscope 82 ED was, and remains, the EDG is indeed that bit brighter, whiter, and of higher edge contrast when compared directly. Additionally, Nikon was able to produce these advantages even when employing a smaller, lighter roof prism; indeed, this is the first birder's super-premium scope employing a roof prism.

The Fieldscope 85mm EDG is produced in both a straight- and an angled-viewing version, and which you choose should depend upon your observing tendencies. Most would agree that using a straight scope makes it easier to initially locate subjects, and assuredly straight scopes are better for use in elevated positions. It is also shorter in both length and height. The main drawback to the straight-viewing design is solely the difficulty in sharing the view among a group of observers of varied heights.

The Nikon Fieldscope EDG arrives to you with a Vue-Thru case with strap, a valuable accessory quite nearly a necessity, as well as a premium 20-60x zoom eyepiece.

Several layers of anti-reflective multi-coatings applied to each carefully constructed optical surface
