Nightforce announces new TS-80™ Hi-Def™ 20-60x spotting scope
Nightforce is introducing the TS-80™ Hi-Def™ 20-60x spotting scope, following hot on the heels of its acclaimed TS-82™ model, winner of Field & Stream magazine’s “Best of the Best” award for 2014.
The TS-80™ Hi-Def™ includes extra-low dispersion (ED) glass, fully broadband multi-coated, which provides outstanding color contrast, brilliant images and excellent resolution; a virtually indestructible, thermally stable magnesium alloy body; large, precise focus and magnification rings, easy to use even when wearing gloves; and non-slip rubber armor that is quiet and stands up to the harshest of field conditions.
An 80mm objective lens results in excellent low-light performance. The TS-80’s™ internal roof prism design also aids in light transmission, as opposed to mirror designs used in lesser spotting scopes which can absorb critical light rays. The prism design also helps reduce eye fatigue while extending viewing time. The new spotter is waterproof and thoroughly shock tested.
Like all Nightforce optics, the TS-80™ is ergonomically designed for maximum comfort and quick response. The silky smooth, knurled magnification ring zooms from 20 to 60x in less than a half turn. Its focus ring adjusts from 20 feet to infinity in just two turns. An adjustable, removable eyecup accommodates eyeglasses. A center ring allows 360-degree rotation of the TS-80™ on a tripod, and it can be locked in place at any degree of rotation. There are tactile detents at the 45-, 90- and 180-degree positions. The ring’s foot fits many quick-release tripods, and also accepts a standard ¼ inch tripod screw. An integral, retractable eyeshade reduces extraneous light while providing protection for the lens.
Optional accessories include a heavy-duty protective sleeve and a handsome, rugged carrying case. The new Nightforce TS-80™ Hi-Def 20-60x spotting scope, assembled in the USA, provides an optimal balance of performance, features, and lasting value at a retail price of $1595.00.
