NIkon Fieldscope 82 ED Eyepieces

Postby Scoter! on Sun Mar 25, 2012 4:54 pm


A friend has an opportunity to buy a circa 2005 Nikon Fieldscope 82 ED at what appears to be a great price. It comes with three (W DS) digiscoping eyepieces. We are wondering about the optical quality of these eyepieces. Are they as good optically as the MC series eyepieces? Also, are there any issues re using these for looking through (my friend does not wear eyeglasses)?

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

The DS series eyepieces are basically the MC series, wide-angle fixed power Fieldscope eyepieces with a groove on the body to accept Nikon digiscoping adapters. Really the same, excellent eyepieces, other than the groove which you can ignore unless you want to try digiscoping. Go for it. Fine spotting scope.
