This scope is featured with refra-reflect objective lens, which makes the instrument shorter, lighter, non-chromatic aberration and more powerful. It combines spotting scope and telescope two in one. With its 800mm focal length and the 2 eyepieces included in this package, the scope can achieve 25x to 50x magnification power. Its large 80mm objective lens lets in more light, thus providing a brighter and clearer image. This instrument is ideal for nature observation and bird watching, as well as for the observation of the Moon and stars. You get a terrestrially correct upright image.
This scope has a built-in standard 1.25" eyepiece adapter which can be fitted with a digital eyepiece/camera for picture taking and video recording through the scope. It can also be fitted with other types of fixed power eyepieces. For example, with the large 32mm eyepiece and a DSLR camera adaptor or a universal digital camera adapter (available from this shop), you can take pictures through the scope using your own digital camera.
