Celestron M2 overview

  • 1Description

The angled-viewing Regal M2 100ED Spotting Scope from Celestron combines a high-transmission optical path with a nitrogen-filled magnesium-alloy housing to deliver reliable imaging performance at low light and in unforgiving weather conditions. At the core of the Regal M2 are fully multi-coated optics, including BAK4 prisms and an extra-low dispersion (ED) glass objective that minimizes chromatic aberration and maximizes light gathering. Multiple layers of Celestron's proprietary XLT coating on each lens preserve brightness and transmit contrast-rich images to the eyepiece.

This version of the Regal M2 spotting scope includes a 22-67x eyepiece that is ideal for intermediate- to long-range glassing. The broad magnification range, comfortable 20mm eye relief, and twist-up rubber eyecup make this zoom eyepiece well suited for long-duration observations. The scope's standard 1.25" eyepiece mount will accept most astronomy eyepieces, which enables a near-infinite number of optical configurations.

Complementing the image quality and weather-sealed construction of the Regal M2, several features enhance the scope's functionality and observer's user experience. An included T-adapter ring permits DSLR camera mounting to the objective assembly, transforming the 100ED into a high-transmission digiscoping platform. The rotating tripod collar has a 1/4"-20 mounting socket and is detented at multiple positions to provide the observer with alternate viewing orientations. A sliding sunshade, sighting aid, and dual-focus mechanism equip the Regal M2 with the functionality needed for a wide range of outdoor glassing applications.

    Celestron M2 reviews

    Regal M2 100ED Spotting Scope with 22-67x Eyepiece (Angled Viewing) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope For The Money I bought this scope for wolf-watching in Yellowstone. I would love to be able to afford a Swarovski or Vortex Razor, but they simply are not in my budget. I was very impressed with this scope! At the lower powers I could not tell any difference between this scope and the popular Swarovski used by most of the wolf-watchers. At the highest power there was a noticeable difference, but at 1/4th the cost I am very pleased. I didn't find a Vortex Razor to compare it with. Overall this is a GREAT scope, especially great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This scope exceeded my expectations. The lens seems to be built like a tank. It's also easy to use. The view at all magnifications is sharp, clear and bright with great color and contrast. Only a little CA at the edges keeps the view from being perfect. A heavy duty tripod and head is a must. I use a Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 ALUMINUM Tripod with a Manfrotto MHXPRO-3W 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head. This combo is rock solid and allows for easy panning and up and down movement. I also use this combo with my Tamron 150-600mm lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance I expected this to have some size but it exceeded my estimates....It's a serious piece of glass! My initial impressions have been very good. Mechanical quality seems solid and I'm very pleased with the optical performance. I replaced a Leupold Compact (on the other end of the size scale) and this is naturally much brighter but also easily resolves more detail. I'm still fiddling with tripod mounting and surprised at how much jitter is present. I use good tripods from my photo activities (Gitzo, Manfrotto, Induro) and it seems that the rubber in the plate to scope has enought give to produce motion. I'll need to fiddle with some cork heads and see if that helps. Have a good understanding of this units size and if it's for you, I think you'd need to spend some really serious money to exceed its optical performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger than I expected. After reading the reviews on this scope I was ready for a few problems with viewing. pleasantly surprised by the optics. They are simply amazing even at max 67X. A little overwhelmed by the size, this thing is huge. If you buy one to carry thru the woods you need to be s good sized person for this one. mine is stationary most of the time. I love it. I really love the price, compared to 80mm and others of same quality optics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Scope at a Great Price with Some Minor Annoyances Considering the optical quality of this scope it would be really hard to justify buying something like a Swarovski. It's very clear and bright and tack sharp even at full magnification. For birders, buy this scope and use the money you saved to get another Nikkor or Canon lens. That being said I have a few minor nitpicks. The balance plate will contact the barrel of the scope limiting the scope's backwards adjustment which sort of defeats its whole purpose, and this scope is naturally very front heavy, so you can't go without it. You end up with a huge heavy hunk of metal bolted onto the bottom of an already heavy scope. Also this plate gets in the way of my Manfrotto 128rc's quick release lever, so the scope has to be mounted backwards on the head. Thankfully, the Manfrotto works just as well this way. The QR release will just be towards the front of the scope, which for me is no big deal. As it stands now, it works, but there is no adjustability backwards because of the plate contacting the scope body and almost no adjustability forwards because of the 1/2 thick plate contacting the tripod heads body. It will be nearly impossible to acually use this six inch long slotted plate for its intended purpose if I mount a camera on the back of the scope. It's probably worth looking for another solution for balancing it. Additionally, with a scope of this size it acts like a big lever and it's quite easy to inadvertantly loosen all of the plates mounting screws (the adjustment plates anti-rotation holes are too small for the Manfrotto's QR plate pins). I recommend investing in some blue Loctite. Lastly, the iron site on the sun shade is obscured by the case, which you generally want to leave on, as intended. A tube site would have been better. Overall these are minor issues once you get the scope set up like you want. Being able to bring out this big gun and get up really close with sharp clear images even in low light means that you will be making id's others only dream of. About the picture: Sometimes its best to show how something works in the worst of conditions. Anything can make tack sharp images in bright daylight at minimum zoom. The below picture is of a still capture of an iPhone video of a Merlin taken at night (sun is fully below horizon behind me)that's being hand held up to the eyepiece of the scope at maximum magnification. The vignetting is due to handholding, in the freezing cold, the iPhone's camera up to the eyepiece. A phone adapter and shooting in photo mode would have made this much clearer, but for id'ing a bird at a great distance this is more than good enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spotting scope Great Scope use for spotting out to 400 meters. Wish it had Hard Case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive instrument Its mounting system works perfectly with my Manfrotto head. Its 22-67x zoom eyepiece is of well built quality. It performs as a precision instrument

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please consider reading this before purchase Overall, this scope is hands down the best buy in this price range. However, it does have a few limitations you should be aware of. The good: Body and construction are very good, but not excellent. This scope is a notch up on quality compared to cheaper scopes, but is not up to the quality of the Alpha Scopes like Zeiss and Swarovski. Optics: Excellent. Within 95% or more of the very best. Virtually no chromatic abbreviation. Sharp to the edge. Included zoom eyepiece is very good. I'm told the glass is Japanese sourced. The Bad: Despite it's 100mm specification, careful exam shows this scope is only 91mm in effective aperture. Worse yet, the type of prism system this uses, the aperture shrinks down smaller when you focus nearer. So one full turn of the focus wheel backwards, and you are down to only about 85mm of effective aperture. This type of issue is common within spotting scopes, and I suspect that the 65mm and 80mm version of this scope has the same issue. More bad: Any telescope eyepiece with a field stop diameter of more than 20mm will not work in this scope. The bottom of the image is cut off. Which means you are limited as to what kind of eyepieces will work. 25mm to 20mm eyepieces can't be used. Overall, it's still an excellent scope, and I would buy again. But I am knocking off a star for some of the limitations it has.
