Designed and engineered to observe the natural world without causing a disruption or disturbing wildlife, the ZEISS Conquest Gavia 85 30-60x85 Spotting Scope offers the benefits of a powerful zoom to bring distant subjects in close plus a large objective to keep images bright and vibrant, even in low light. Its magnification and objectives are complemented by the use of ZEISS' iconic T* anti-reflection multi-coatings and LotuTec hydrophobic exterior lens coatings. For comfortable viewing in all positions, the eyepiece is set at a 45° angle to the optical tube and the tripod collar can be rotated for precise eyepiece placement whether standing, sitting, or lying prone.
Built for the road less traveled, the compact housing is made of a lightweight but durable magnesium alloy to help reduce weight without sacrificing strength. A large focus collar is easy to manipulate, even with gloves on, as is the smaller zoom wheel on the eyepiece. To help defend against the elements, the housing is nitrogen filled for fog-proof performance, especially when moving between extreme temperature changes, and O-rings seal the optical system, making it waterproof against up to 400mbar of pressure. A universal tripod mount has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 sockets to allow its use on most photo, video, and field tripods.
