The angled-viewing Endeavor HD 20-60x82 Spotting Scope from Vanguard combines a nitrogen-filled magnesium housing and a fully multi-coated optical path to create a well-equipped zoom optic for intermediate- to long-range observation. Vanguard gave the Endeavor HD series an extra-low dispersion (ED) lens system and phase-corrected BAK4 prisms, which maximize light transmission and produce color-faithful images that are rich with contrast.

This version of the Endeavor HD spotting scope includes a 20-60x zoom eyepiece featuring a rubber zoom dial. A 1:3 zoom ratio and 2.1-1.0° angle of view complement the eyepiece's long 19mm eye relief and rubber eyecup, which help to provide additional viewing comfort for long-duration observations.

In addition to the image quality and weather-sealed construction, the Endeavor HD includes several features that enhance the scope's functionality. A stacked dual-focus mechanism enables the observer to make fine- and coarse-focus adjustments. The tripod mounting foot has a standard 1/4"-20 socket and is compatible with Vanguard tripods that accept the universal mounting shoe. An integrated sunshade and included custom-fit raincoat carrying case help to make the Endeavor HD a full-featured spotting scope for outdoor use.

is the rubber eyecup a foldup eyecup or a twist up eyecup?
Asked by: bruce
The rubber eyecup twists up. It works very smoothly. I wear glasses and my wife doesn't so this is the perfect setup. You don't have to worry about rubber getting old and brittle.
