Key Features
  • 16-48x Zoom Eyepiece
  • Apparent Angle of View 41.5°
  • BAK4 Fully Multi-Coated Lenses
  • Built-In Sliding Sunshade
The ProStaff 5 16-48x60 Spotting Scope from Nikon has a Porro prism design with fully multi-coated optics. A large magnification zoom of 16-48x allows a wider field scan followed by progressive magnification of finer details. The 60mm objective lens transmits enough light to make this spotting scope usable in the low-light periods of dawn and twilight. The angled eyepiece allows longer stress-free viewing sessions with a more comfortable view of targets near the zenith. There is a built-in sliding sunshade for protection from excessive glare or raindrops on the objective. The housing is fully O-ring sealed and purged with nitrogen to ensure all-weather performance. Regardless of the weather conditions, the field of view will be sparkling clear and the optic's internal mechanism will be well protected from the negative effects of moisture and atmospheric residue. Waterproof to 3.3 feet for up to 10 minutes, this fieldscope is suitable for all types of outdoor activities in any kind of weather. Backed up by Nikon's "No-Fault" repair/replacement lifetime warranty regardless of what happens to the scope—even from your own negligence—Nikon will repair or replace (at their option) this extremely well-built and durable fieldscope.

question

What adapter would I need to mount this to a Canon EOS 70D?
Asked by: Edwin D.
You will need an adapter for your scope and a T ring for your camera. Remove the eyepiece from the scope and replace it with the adapter. Then remove the lens from your camera and replace it with the T ring. Then Screw the T ring onto the adapter of the scope and start shooting. These are the B&H part numbers you will need. For your scope B&H# CETA1.25. For your camera you will need a T mount B&H # KOTMCAF.

Eye piece is not getting fixed up in body?
Asked by: satish g.
Sorry for delay. It really stiff but you align the two white dots turn the eye piece counter clockwise until you hear a slight click coming from the black button on the bottom of the body of the scope near where the eye piece attaches. To release the eye piece push the black button and hold turning the eye piece clockwise
