Vanguard Vesta 350A 12-45X50 Angled Spotting Scope V246093 with Case Tripod Set

  • $266.00

Utilizing a moderate 50mm objective lens keeps the overall form factor small to make it easier to pack and carry in the field, and their Advanced MultiGuard lens coating system boosts its performance in low and challenging conditions while ensuring the views remain bright and clear. Its broad zoom range allows you to more easily scan the landscape for targets at the low 12x with the ability to quickly dial up the power to 45x and make detailed observations of distant subjects.

The chassis is made of a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy that is protected by a black rubber armor. The chassis is nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging even in extreme weather and temperature conditions. The angled-viewing configuration sets the eyepiece at a 45° angle to the scope's body, which places the user's head in a more comfortable viewing position versus straight-through viewing models. A 1/4"-20 mount makes it compatible with many tripods, quick release plates, and other popular support systems like window mounts, and Vanguard includes a compact tabletop tripod to get you observing right out of the box. A lightweight carrying bag makes it easy to carry in the field.
