Leica Spotting Scope Set: 65 Angled Televid, 25-50x eyepiece, Gitzo Series 1 Tripod and Gitzo two-way head

The Leica APO-Televid 65 is a top-class small, compact spotting scope, only 30 cm in length. With 4-part fluoride objective lens system for the best possible color accuracy, image definition and detail. The shortest close focus distance in its class (only 3.0 meters). This angled spotting scope has a rubber-protected magnesium housing and is nitrogen filled, while being waterproofed up to 5 meters.

The automatic eyepiece lock on the new bayonet system ensures that all eyepieces are held firmly in place. The Leica dual-focus system is reinforced by an additional crosspiece. The full rubber protection of the robust magnesium housing which fits comfortably in your hand, absorbs shocks effectively and guarantees silent viewing. On the APO models, an optically neutral front lens glass additionally protects the sensitive optic from harsh weather conditions.

The APO-Televid Aspherical eyepiece boasts optical superiority and durability with its wide angle 60 degree field of view, fully multi-coated lens system, rapid interchange bayonet attachment method, rubberized function elements and twist out eye cup. The nitrogen filled eye piece is submergible to 17 ft. and is completely fog/shockproof.  

The Gitzo Two-way Fluid Tripod Head is ideal for use during bird watching as it can be panned 360° and tilted 110° while providing almost completely friction-less movement. The Gitzo Series 1 Traveler Carbon Fiber Tripod has a load capacity of 22 lbs with a maximum height of 64.4 inches and a minimum height of 12.6 inches while its folded height is 16.7 inches. The Gitzo Series 1 Traveler Tripod and tripod head combined weight is 3.4 pounds and fits easily into a carry-on bag. It is one of the lightest weighing functional tripods.

There are 100 APO-Televid 65 Angled sets available worldwide.
