The Nikon Prostaff 5 20-60x 82mm Spotting Scope, angled viewing, offers incredible brightness and clarity, the hallmark of Nikon products. The 82mm objective lens lets in more light than smaller scopes, enabling you to use it in low light conditions (dawn, dusk, deep woods or overcast days).

The Nikon Prostaff 5 Fieldscope is built for those who are truly passionate about optical performance. With exciting optical and mechanical innovations, this fieldscope is designed for a new level of high-performance spotting.

Featuring legendary Nikon optical glass, fully multicoated optics and improved chromatic aberration reduction, this Prostaff 5 Fieldscope provides bright, high contrast images with true color rendition in most lighting conditions. Together, the optical innovations allow the user to pull subjects out of their natural backgrounds and reveal every detail in brilliant color and with a clear, edge-to-edge resolution.

To provide users with the brightest possible image, internal surface texturing minimizes reflective light loss inside the scope. The Prostaff 5 Fieldscope eyepiece is a digiscope-ready design, so users can capture amazing high-magnification images by using an optional accessory digital camera bracket. It also features enhanced eye relief for use with eyeglasses and a convenient turn-and-slide eyecup.

To keep the natural elements in check, a built-in sliding sunshade eliminates glare in bright conditions and also keeps dust and rain off the objective lens. The ergonomic, lightweight porro prism design makes it easy to handle, even in wet conditions. Like all models in the Prostaff line, the Prostaff 5 Fieldscope is waterproof, fogproof, nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed.

Backed up by Nikon’s “No-Fault” repair/replacement 25-year warranty; regardless of what happens to the scope-even from negligence – Nikon will repair or replace (at their option) this extremely well built and durable spotting scope.
