Featuring an upgraded optical system for improved colour contrast and apparent resolution, ES v3 fieldscopes are designed and manufactured to deliver ‘best in class’ optical performance combined with rugged dependability and real user comfort.
The suffix SD for standard belies the quality of this tri-element F500 viewing platform. Utilising Opticron F-type high refractive index multi-coating complete with BK 7 prisms the ES 80 GA SD/45 demands serious consideration for anybody interested in an 80mm fieldscope. Image texture is slightly softer than sister ED model but the instrument deals competently with a range of interspersed colours in varying light conditions up to 60x magnification, combined with accurate focusing and a welcome lack of colour distortion. A magnesium, aluminium and polycarbonate body protected in textured rubber armour plus nitrogen waterproofing eliminate condensation.
Weight is kept to a minimum and the scope is well balanced for effective use on a tripod. Other features include a retractable lens hood, integrated rubber objective lens cover, conveniently positioned wide band focusing wheel and rotating tripod sleeve to enable maximum versatility in hides or viewing from a sitting or prone position.
ES models can be converted for use with SLR cameras for telephotography and are supplied complete with a 30 year guarantee.
