The Meopta S1 S75 75mm Spotting Scope
is a high-quality waterproof and fogproof spotting scope with a
straight viewing design. Also available with angled viewing, but which
one should be used is entirely a personal preference which cannot be
determined except from experience. Straight scopes are simpler to use,
particularly when locating the subject, and shave a bit off of the
weight, size and cost.
The 75mm size lets in a high degree of
light, allowing for use of higher magnifications in poorer light than
with the 65mm version. Understandably, it is larger, heavier and more
expensive, but if you’re not frequently hiking with your scope it is
likely worth the expense and mass.
Meopta spotting scopes are
designed for the Natureviewer, Birdwatcher, Hunter and Target Shooter
who demands a compact, lightweight, waterproof instrument with the
highest levels of light transmission and definition.
