Opticron HR 80 GA ED is their top-of-the-line offering, and it's well worth your consideration. Compare with the Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85.
Aimed squarely at the serious user, HR ED fieldscopes are built to withstand extremes in temperature, to operate unaffected by rain, cold or humidity and be used anywhere from the equatorial rainforests to the poles. Delivering the highest resolution figures in the Opticron range, each model contains a high definition 5 element apochromat objective lens with 2 individual ED elements. In addition to enhancing resolution, this second element delivers significant reductions in chromatic aberration settings compared to single element designs.
To optimize light transmission and color contrast across the magnification range, Opticron N-type extra wide band multi-coating is applied to all air/glass surfaces throughout each
Mechanically HR ED fieldscopes feature a magnesium alloy body fitted with a +/- 90° rotating tripod sleeve. Fully nitrogen gas filled waterproof and hermetically sealed against penetration from dust and moisture, the models are protected in durable textured rubber armor. Other features include a centrally positioned focus wheel for optimum accessibility, retractable lens hood (sunshade) and integrated rubber objective lens cover.
A wide range of eyepieces are available for Opticron fieldscopes. Choosing the best one is often confusing but making the right choice will depend on price and application. It is
important you remember the eyepiece is an integral part of the system and choosing a lower quality lens will affect overall image quality. We supply the HR 66 GA ED with Opticron's top-of-the-line SDLv2 eyepiece. The SDL v2 Eyepiece is a 5-group, 8-element ‘super’ zoom, the SDLv2 offers superior cross-field definition with exceptional viewing comfort. Waterproof and fitted with a rotating eyecup. Supplied in soft padded case.
