ES 80 GA SD/45
The suffix SD for 'standard' belies the quality of this tri-element 500mm fieldscope. Utilizing high quality Japanese-made optical components and a high refractive index multi-coating system, the ES 80 GA SD/45 demands serious consideration for anybody interested in a tough and extremely reliable 80mm fieldscope. Image texture is slightly softer than sister ED model but the instrument deals competently with a range of interspersed colors in varying light conditions up to 60x magnification, combined with accurate focusing and a welcome lack of color distortion.
Featuring an upgraded optical system for improved color 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.
Available in three variants; 80mm SD, 80mm ED and 100mm ED the instruments excel in the most important area for the majority of users: image quality. The reduction of almost all visible chromatic aberration at 60x magnification with the 80 SD sets the standard for both definition and tonal quality further improved upon with the 80 ED and 100 ED.
Main features include a tri-element high definition objective lens (SD or ED) with Opticron F-type multi-coating that visibly increases both color contrast and clarity over standard multi-coatings, magnesium, aluminum and polycarbonate body protected in textured rubber armor plus nitrogen waterproofing to eliminate condensation.
Weight is kept to a minimum and the 'scopes are 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 blinds or viewing from a sitting or prone position.
Fully compatible with SDL and HDF T eyepieces the models offer an exciting array of viewing options depending on your chosen application.
ES models can be converted for use with SLR cameras for telephotography and are supplied complete with a 20 year Premiere Plus Warranty.
