Swarovski Optik HD spotting scopes impress with their brilliant performance, fine resolution, extremely ergonomic design and unique functionality. The Swarovski STS 65 HD Spotting Scope HD (HD equals high definition) spotting scopes have a complex high grade optical system which allows for very detailed observation with high contrast images right up to the periphery and with total color fidelity even in poor light.

The Swarovski STS 65 HD Spotting Scope body is compact and lightweight, making it ideal for birdwatchers and others who need to move to several locations in a single day, or for observers who value minimal weight in a scope. The aluminum body STS 65 features a 65mm objective (outside lens) diameter. Each spotting scope in the Swarovski Optik collection is well built and protected from scratches or dents. They boast rubber armoring that protects against shock and drops. This scope has a straight body, a more traditional design.

The HD lenses contain flouride, which minimizes color fringing (chromatic aberration) and delivers high-contrast images with precise outlines. Terrific for everyday viewing, they’re also valuable for digital photographers who want to take pictures through the scope. The proprietary lenses’ enhanced Swarodur or Swarotop coatings guarantee lifelike color reproduction and outstanding image brightness in low light conditions.

An exclusive Swaroclean coating on the outer surface of each lens helps to extend the lifespan of your lens–particularly effective when you need to remove dried-on mineral residues (such as water marks from condensation), insect repellents, and tree resin.

Swarovski’s high-contrast HD spotting scopes are also ideal for color-rich digital photography. Attachments are available for your DSLR as well as point and shoot digital cameras. Digiscoping (photography through spotting scopes) accessories are available.

PLEASE NOTE: This spotting scope body is sold separately from the eyepiece. You must also purchase an eyepiece for viewing. There are two compatible eyepieces in the Swarovski line available for purchase with this telescope body:
