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.
ES 80 GA SD/45
The suffix SD for standard belies the quality of this tri-element 500mm viewing platform. Utilising Opticron F-type high refractive index multi-coating complete with BK 7 prisms the ES 80 GA SD/45 demands serious consideration for anybody interested in an 80mm fieldscope. Image texture is slightly softer than sister ED model but the instrument deals competently with a range of interspersed colours in varying light conditions up to 60x magnification, combined with accurate focusing and a welcome lack of colour distortion.
