APO-Televid 65mm Spotting Scope (Angled Viewing, Requires Eyepiece)

The angled-viewing configuration APO-Televid 65mm Spotting Scope from Leica combines premium optical elements with a weather-sealed housing and a proprietary micro-focusing system. Four fully multi-coated apochromatic lens elements and a Schmidt prism system form the core of this optical instrument. Leica's fluoride apochromatic glass is engineered to transmit luminous images that are geometrically flat from center to edge and color-faithful across the entire visible spectrum. When paired with Leica's 25-50x wide-angle aspherical zoom eyepiece (separate purchase required), the APO-Televid renders high-contrast images that are rich with detail.

A magnesium-alloy chassis makes the structure of the APO-Televid as rigid and durable as aluminum-chassis designs in the same class but significantly less heavy than those models. To deliver weatherproof performance, the optical channel is nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed, maintaining its watertight seal to a depth of 5 meters. The AquaDura-coated hydrophobic objective lens surface resists moisture accumulation by causing rain and condensation to bead up and roll off the lens surface. The rubber-armored body is shock absorbent and slip resistant, providing an additional layer of protection against the unexpected. Leica's proprietary internal dual-focusing system enables you to control the focus of your scope with coarse or fine movements, ideal for digiscoping and nature observation. The integrated rotating tripod collar, quick-change bayonet eyepiece mount, and sliding lens hood make the APO-Televid a full-featured spotting scope for a wide range of recreational and professional glassing applications.

GH1720QR Two-Way Fluid Tripod Head

The Gitzo Two-Way Fluid Tripod Head features completely redesigned pan and tilt fluid cartridges - Bird Watching Fluid Cartridges. These cartridges allow for smooth and controlled movements at low speeds and almost frictionless movements at high speeds, making quick repositioning of the camera a breeze.

The single-lock mechanism quickly fixes the 360° pan and ± 110° tilt movements using a single knob, making adjustments easier and more effective. Ergonomically suitable for both right/left-handed use, the tripod head offers maximum stability to avoid even the smallest play, and a high-precision mechanism ensures accuracy. A quick-release plate makes for fast removal as well as facilitating the mounting of scopes, cameras and other such equipment.

Made of magnesium, the lightweight tripod head has high structural rigidity, and can support a load up to 8.82 lbs (4 kg). When used with Gitzo carbon fiber tripods (the Leveling series), the tripod head yields additional speed and versatility while shooting. The removable and reversible pan bar proves useful while using long photographic lenses. A compact design makes the tripod head easily portable and ideal for travel.

The Two-Way Fluid Tripod Head's light weight along with its innovative Bird Watching Fluid Cartridges, add up to the ideal tripod head for bird watching and wildlife photography/videography.
