Opticron ES 80 GA ED Telescope Body
The latest optical upgrades, superior RI F-type multi-coating system and ED objective lens that virtually eliminates the distorting effects of chromatic aberration over 35x magnification all combine to further enhance the performance of this our most popular 80mm model. Images are vibrant and ‘true to life' and what's more - reproduced consistently across the magnification range.
New for 2009 and featuring an upgraded optical system for improved colour 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 colour contrast and clarity over standard multi-coatings, magnesium, aluminium and polycarbonate body protected in textured rubber armour 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 hides or viewing from a sitting or prone position.
Fully compatible with SDL, HDF and HR eyepieces the models offer an exciting array of viewing options of 20x to 100x (80mm) and 30x to 134x (100). For even greater magnification a 2.5x Tele-adapter is available for SDL, HDF and HR eyepieces.
ES models can be converted for use with SLR cameras for telephotography and are supplied complete with a 30 year guarantee.
