The Swarovski Optik STM-80-HD Spotting Scope is extremely rugged and unusually lightweight, thanks to state of the art magnesium technology. The large objective lens diameter enables observation in razor-sharp detail due to excellent light-gathering qualities even at high magnifications. Fluoride-containing HD lenses minimize color fringing (chromatic aberration) and deliver high contrast images with razor-sharp outlines. Ideal for digital photography through the spotting scope.
A straight scope simplifies locating and following birds in flight and makes it easier to observe from a hide or car. The STM-80 HD also has Swarovski's latest external coatings for repelling moisture, dust and debris. They stay clean longer and clean easily.
