Swallow ED 16-48x65 spotting scope
Following on from the success of the Swallow 65mm and 80mm models, Viking introduce an even better optical performance experience with the Swallow ED 16-48x65 spotting scope.
From the extra-low dispersion (ED) glass objective elements to the dielectric coatings on the prisms, these spotting scopes perform to a level not seen in instruments at this price point before.
A lightweight, yet robust, polycarbonate body material, means that the 65mm version weighs in at less than the weight of two average 8x42 binoculars!
The features don’t end there – dual focus wheels with different gearing enable a much finer control over focus accuracy at high magnifications where depth of field becomes very shallow.
Both models are completely waterproof, supplied with stay on cases for added protection and are backed by a 10-year guarantee.
Take your wildlife viewing to the next level.

Viking Swallow Tripod complete with Video Fluid head
