APO-Televid 82 Spotting Scope (Angled Viewing, Requires Eyepiece)

Offering superb optical performance in a lightweight and easy-to-manage package, the APO-Televid 82 Spotting Scope from Leica delivers brilliant insights into nature that are rich in detail and contrast. Its high-performance optics and compact form factor make it a natural choice for digiscoping as well as conventional viewing—there's a special camera adapter that allows the viewer to convert the Televid into a high-powered telephoto lens for long-range photographic applications.

The optical system of the APO-Televid 82 combines apochromatic optics with fluoride glass and a substantial 82 mm objective to bring a significant increase in light throughput to the viewing experience. From dawn till dusk, the APO-Televid reveals astounding intimate high-resolution views of flora, fauna, and vistas.

This APO-Televid 82 features angled viewing that's favored for rapid subject location. The optional 25-50x WW aspherical eyepiece is highly recommended as a matching ocular for this scope, as its wide FOV delivers a wrap-around viewing experience that pairs well with the refined optics of the Televid scope.

Leica's legendary optical performance becomes quite apparent when viewing through the APO-Televid 82. Apochromatic color-accuracy, fluoride lenses for startling high-contrast imaging, full multi-coating throughout the system, and the addition of Leica's proprietary AquaDura protective coatings all combine to produce scenic wonder without compromise.

The die-cast housing is constructed from a lightweight magnesium alloy for its remarkable strength and rigidity. The exterior is covered in a non-reflective matte-black rubber armoring for a bit of shock/impact resiliency and a positive tactile grip in all types of weather. The scope also features a rotating tripod collar that brings a not-so-subtle increase in versatility when positioning the APO-Televid 82 for digiscoping purposes.

Features:

  • Optically neutral front lens protects the APO optics
  • Water- and dust-repellent hydrophobic AquaDura lens coatings
  • Apochromatic fully multi-coated color-corrected optical system
  • Fluoride glass lenses for enhanced color fidelity and contrast
  • Robust black rubber armored die-cast magnesium housing
  • Sealed optical system is waterproof to a depth of 17.0'/5.0 m
  • Objective: 82 mm
  • Rotating tripod collar with detented click stops
  • Dual focus system with microfocusing is precise and intuitive
  • Retractable lens hood with built-in peepsight for rapid subject location

1.8x Extender for APO-Televid 65 mm or 82 mm Angled Spotting Scope

The 1.8x Extender from Leica is an eyepiece extension adapter for angled Leica APO-Televid 65 mm or 82 mm Spotting Scope and the Leica 25-50x WW ASPH Eyepiece. This extender has an achromatic doublet lens and increases a spotting scope's magnification by 1.8 times. A 50x magnification of a spotting scope thus can be increased to 90x.

GT2542 Mountaineer Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod

The GT2542 Mountaineer Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Gitzo features Carbon eXact tubing, which includes High Modulus carbon fiber in the lower leg sections, adding to their diameters and making the tripod more rigid and stronger than its predecessor. The GT2542 has a load capacity of 39.7 lb, extends to a maximum height of 65.7", and folds down to 22" for transport.

The center column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 5.9". Its four-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity, and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg angles. A ballast hook on the center column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability.

 

GH2720QR Bird Watching Fluid Head with Quick Release System

Bird watching makes completely different demands of equipment than do video or photo applications. Nevertheless, almost all bird watchers currently use tripod heads specifically developed to support video or photo equipment, which means the heads tend to be larger, heavier and more complicated than is needed for bird watching. With this in mind, Gitzo has developed the GH2720QR Bird Watching Fluid Head.

This head incorporates Gitzo's innovative Bird Watching Fluid Cartridges to guarantee exceptionally smooth and controlled pans and tilts at very low speed, and almost completely free movement at high speeds required for capturing avian movements. Gitzo's Single Lock System allows for fast, single-handed, easy and secure switching of equipment on and off the tripod; ideal for bird watchers trying to view our fair-feathered friends.

Ergonomic, accurate movement and high quality magnesium construction make these heads ideal for bird watching or video use.
