Bird watchers in particular value more and more the advantages of a high quality telescope which is still compact enough to carry in a backpack or luggage when traveling. With the 16x magnification of the variable eyepiece the compact scope can be hand-held, although for optimum use a tripod is always recommended. For high light transmission as well as brilliance, high contrast and natural color rendition the high resolution objective lens features a multi-layer coating. This helps to ensure the high quality required for detailed observation and reliable identification of a species. The scope has an extremely close focus range. Go from just five meters from your subject right through to infinity. The sturdy but lightweight body protects the precision mechanics and optics against damage in normal use. Rubber armoring ensures good to grip and provides added protection and it is watertight to a depth of five meters.
