The straight-through viewing ProStaff 3 16-48x60 Spotting Scope Kit from Nikon combines a fully multi-coated optical path and a weather-sealed housing to create a well-equipped optic for intermediate- to long-range observations. In addition to the 16-48x60 spotting scope, this outfit includes a multi-section tripod with lever lock-adjustable legs and a pan/tilt head as well as a soft carrying case to conveniently transport this Fieldscope system.

At the core of Nikon's ProStaff 3 spotting scope are environmentally friendly Eco-Glass elements and prisms that are composed of responsibly sourced arsenic-free material. The entire optical system is fully multi-coated, resulting in enhanced low-light performance and contrast-rich images that are crisp throughout the zoom range. A nitrogen-filled fog and waterproof housing, 11-foot close-focus distance, and included accessories make the ProStaff 3 16-48x60 outfit a full-featured spotting scope kit for almost any recreational glassing activity.

    ProStaff 3 16-48x60 Spotting Scope Kit (Straight Viewing) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent scope with a lousy tripod This is a good scope for the money especially at B&H which is a good $100 less than the best price on the internet. However the tripod is totally useless, very light and super shaky. Luckily I have a hefty camera tripod which fits the existing tripod mount on the scope. Excessive chromatic aberration past 30X magnification. Good for glassing 1/2 holes on regular target paper up to 175 yards in good daylight (will probably increase the distance on the fluorescent paper). Probably wouldn't use it for serious ornithology as the colors at large distance and high magnification will be messed up. Eye relief not super good, have to get my eyeball all the way up to the eyepiece. Don't buy if you don't have a separate heavy tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very clear and great value This spotting scope is very clear. I can even read signs over 500 yards away with 48X. Great size for glassing deer or elk .
