The Swarovski Optik ATS 65 HD Spotting Scope with 25-50x eyepiece features fluoride HD lenses that minimize color fringing (chromatic aberration). It is easy to handle and extremely light due to slender ergonomic design. The user friendly, ergonomic focus ring with large groves gives quick precise focus. It is dustproof and watertight, submersible to 13 ft with protective rubber armoring.

Excellent magnification, sharp, and clear. The 20-60x eyepiece seems nice enough to me, though I sometimes have trouble with the lock snapping closed, as well as keeping the eye relief bezel screwed down tight. Sometimes when changing eye relief between different viewers, the eye relief want to twist off. Also, in wind above 30 mph, I get vibration in the scope, especially (as ecxpected) under high magnification. Having a bomb proof tripod and head, I have narrowed the weak point down to the scope's mount. Seems weak to me, and should have been designed to be made of solid aluminum, rather than having a plastic coating.
