Swarovski Optik has introduced four 80mm spotting scopes. The ATS/ATS HD (angled eyepiece) and STS/STS HD (straight eyepiece) spotting scopes are available with 20X, 30X, 45X, and 20-60X variable eyepieces. Swarovski lenses are precision made and provide razor-sharp, high contrast images with true natural color reproduction right up to the edge of the image even at the highest magnification. Patented Swarotop and Swarodur coatings reduce surface reflection. Eye relief is 17mm. An ergonomically positioned focusing ring with large grooves provides quick and precise focusing. The housing is corrosion-free, lightweight aluminum with a shock-absorbing casing made from easy-to-grip rubber. The length of the STS 80 is 13.1 inches; the length of the ATS 80 is 13.9 inches. The weight of the four scopes ranges from 45.1 to 47.6 ounces. The suggested retail price of the ATS 80 and STS 80 bodies is $1254.44; the suggested retail price of the ATS 80 HD and STS 80 HD bodies is $1721.11. The 20X and 30X fixed-power eyepieces list for $287.78; the 45X eyepiece is $365.56; the 20-60X zoom eyepiece costs $410.
