The angled view Regal M2 80ED LER 27x80 Spotting Scope from Celestron combines a high-transmission optical path with a nitrogen-filled magnesium alloy housing to deliver reliable imaging performance at low light and in unforgiving weather conditions. At the core of the Regal M2 are fully multicoated optics, including BaK-4 prisms and an extra low dispersion (ED) glass objective that minimizes chromatic aberration and maximizes light gathering. Multiple layers of Celestron's XLT coating on each lens preserve brightness and transmit contrast-rich images to the eyepiece.

This version of the Regal M2 LER spotting scope includes a 27x fixed-magnification eyepiece with an impressive 32mm eye relief that is ideal prolonged viewing, such as a day at the range. The scope's standard 1.25" eyepiece mount will accept most astronomical eyepieces, which enables a near-infinite number of optical configurations.

Complementing the image quality and weather-sealed construction of the Regal M2, several features enhance the scope's functionality and observer's user-experience. An included T-adapter ring permits DSLR camera mounting to the objective assembly, transforming the 80ED into a high-transmission digiscoping platform. The rotating tripod collar has a 1/4"-20 mounting socket click-stops at multiple positions to provide the observer with alternate viewing orientations. A sliding sunshade with sighting aid, and dual-focus mechanism equip the Regal M2 LER with the functionality needed for a wide range of outdoor glassing applications.

    .. Scope is a rifleman's dream and would be a great choice for anyone who wears glasses while spotting
    on November 19, 2014

    This Celestron Regal M2 LER 27x80 ED Spotting Scope is a rifleman's dream and would be a great choice for anyone who wears glasses while spotting. The eye relief is 32mm which means I can look at targets comfortably with my prescription safety glasses on, and without jostling the scope. It's important to note that the eyepiece comes with a long rubber eyecup installed which isn't glasses friendly, however included in the box is a very short alternate rubber eyecup for wearers of glasses that goes on and protects the lens of your glasses from scratching on metal. That's the ticket. The longer installed eyecup is meant for when not wearing glasses.

    Being a photographer I thought seriously of buying an adapter to allow me to use my Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L lens as a spotting scope, but I'm glad I didn't because although that's fine glass, it wouldn't have had the eye relief and it weighs a ton. This scope, although big, is quite light due to the magnesium body. I've read that it's a full pound lighter than the previous version due to changing from aluminum alloy to magnesium.

    I also have a Barska 20-60x60 scope so that my nephew and I can watch each other shoot and make derisive remarks regarding marksmanship, and that's a fine scope for the money, but here's what you get for the higher price of this scope.

    - Rotating mount. This is useful if you want to have your eyepiece at an angle just to the left of your rifle. Makes it so you barely have to move your head to see how you're doing on the target. This also allows you to use a medium tripod with the vertical tube inserted upside down so that you can hang it underneath and get it right down on a high shooting bench. I use a Sinclair bench clamp with this which works great at my range, but it's nice to have options.

    - ED glass. Minimized vignetting and virtually no chromatic aberration distortion. Crisp and clear all the way with no crazy prismatic colors messing up your view. Outstanding light collection in dark-ish conditions to boot.

    - Excellent focus control. One knob for big changes and another for fine adjustment. The fine adjustment knob is easy to turn with just a fingertip on the fly without displacing the scope.

    - With this particular model made for shooters, you get a very nice zipper case which can be left on at all times. It has a zippered relief hole for mounting and can be peeled away at both ends, then the peeled parts can be velcroed out of the way. Smart design.

    - This will vary from user to user, but I can easily see 30-06 holes on paper at 200 yards with my middle-aged vision, which is iffy even with glasses, but even worse using the Barska. Dialing in more magnification with the Barska doesn't help because it's more a function of clarity, which suffers greatly on inexpensive scopes at high magnification. My nephew does better with the Barska than I do, but he's got younger eyeballs.

    It was a friend's far more expensive Kowa ED glass spotting scope with an LER eyepiece that got me wondering if I could do well on my budget, so I took a chance and I think I did fine. I haven't done a side-by-side A/B comparison, but I'm sure this scope will compare well.
