Unfortunately Swarovski STS-80 Spotting Scope is no longer carried by OpticsPlanet.
You can also explore other items in the Spotting Scopes category yourself to try and find the perfect replacement for you!
The STS 80 observation telescopes set the highest standards among telescopes in this category. Even with the easy-to-handle fully rubberized armouring, the STS 80 are by far the lightest of the larger observation telescopes. Thanks to a recalculated optical system, they offer a precise observation of detail, optimum edge-to-edge images and almost 100 per cent color fidelity with an extremely wide field of view, thereby achieving a revolutionary image quality.
