Our Take on the Swarovski STS-65 HD 65mm Spotting Scope (Straight Viewing):
The 65 mm objective of the Swarovski STS-65 HD 65mm Spotting Scope (straight viewing) is an excellent trade-off between aperture and portability. It provides a minimum focus distance of 10 ft. or 3 meters and has an M67x0.75 filter thread. The light path for the viewing is through the compact roof-mount prism. The elements of the unit are of extra-low dispersion fluoride glass that faithfully transmits all possible wavelengths of the visible light spectrum. It eliminates aberrations and enriches the image with clarity and details, and maintains high levels of color fidelity.
The legendary SWAROTOP coating on the lenses of the Swarovski STS-65 HD 65 mm Spotting Scope (straight viewing) avoids glare and presents crisp, high-contrast images. And the SWARODUR coating protects the surfaces of the lens from abrasions and accidental scratches. The construction of the Scope body is of durable Aluminum alloy material that also weighs less. To add protection, there is also rubber armor around it that secures it against impacts and elongates its life. It also provides a firm grip for the user. There is no risk of internal fogging experience in varying and extreme temperature levels or environmental conditions as the tubes are filled and sealed with nitrogen. Also, the sealing makes the unit dust-proof and waterproof. It is submersible up to 13 ft. underwater without facing any damage.
The tripod collar of the Swarovski STS-65 HD 65mm Spotting Scope (straight viewing) has a standard 1/4"-20 socket, which is also rotatable, thereby helping to precisely position the eyepiece relative to the mounting system. It is compatible with many quick-release plates. The focusing collar is large, thereby adding to the ergonomics to facilitate easy operation even when using gloves. Quick target pick-up is possible with the removable sighting aid. The unit has a wide operating temperature range of -4° to 131° F, which makes it a suitable instrument for terrains of extreme climatic conditions.
