Tele Vue has been producing telescopes for terrestrial and astronomical use since 1985. The lightweight Tele Vue 85 APO has been rated tops for optics by the Cornell Ornithology Lab. You'll find rugged USA built quality along with versatility and optical excellence. In addition to the widest-angle views of any spotting scopes, and the photographic capabilities when used as fast telephoto lenses, every Tele Vue telescope is tested to perform to the theoretical ideal for high power observations. Your long-distance "microscope" for feather structure at 150x can also become your passport to the moon, planets, and stars.
The Televue TV-85 refractor combines true apochromatic doublet lens performance with special dispersion low chromatic glass to produce stunning image sharpness and color. The apochromatic performance of the new Nagler designed, fully multi-coated 2-element objective and 2" Everbrite diagonal produce natural stellar and planetary color rendition even at the highest useful powers. All air-to-glass surfaces in the Tele Vue 85 are multicoated to provide high transmission and virtually eliminate internal reflections. The optical tube itself has a textured, flat-black inner surface which serves to suppress internal reflections and helps deliver high-contrast images. The high quality diagonal a delivers a full 99% light transmission which permits the use of long focal length 2" eyepieces.
