The Leica APO-Televid 82 features apochromatically corrected optics combined with the new FL lenses and an 82 mm diameter objective increase the light yield by more than 6 % and the imaging performance is clearly visible when viewing the finest, natural details and structures in the highest possible resolution.
For that little bit extra in terms of experiencing nature, especially in poor lighting conditions. Top-of-the-range spotting scope delivering professional standards for all users. An innovative 4-part fluoride lens objective for maximum color fidelity and richness of contrast. Optically neutral front lens glass to protect the APO optic and Leica AquaDura coating. Particularly short close focus distance of 3.9 meters. Rubber-protected magnesium housing, waterproofed up to 5 meters.
It is the perfect tool for experiencing nature at very close range. High-quality images can be captured with a camera using photo or digital adapters. The innovative Leica AquaDura coating considerably reduces these disturbing factors. As with the lotus plant, this new water and dirt-resistant protective layer on the outer glass surfaces ensures that dirt and moisture are barely able to take hold on the specially adapted surface structure of the optic.

I use the Leica APO 82mm spotting scope for hunting and taking pictures. It is as good as it gets for either. You can judge an animals tropy potential out to a mile with out difficulty. There is not a better spotting scope available. Clarity and brightness remain the same throughout power range. I have compared this scope with my Swarovski ST-80-20X/60 High Definition and other high end scopes and the Leica has them beat in all ways, they are not even close. If you are in need of a spotting scope, you can not go wrong with this unit. You will never need to upgrade, and from my previous experiance with other Leica products I am sure it will last a lifetime.
