A new generation of field scopes


Swarovski is about to launch its new generation of scopes in Australia. The ATX / STX spotting scopes have been built with a modular design to provide flexibiity in the field. Early tests indicate a very high resolution for digiscoping and digivideo.

The image above was provided to us by someone trying out the Swarovski ATX 95 Telescope Canon EOS 7D. The cropped image is a full scale rendering of the original image at 72dpi. Very impressive.

We can't wait to try one out !

This is what Swarovski have to say:

The new ATX/STX family of scopes from SWAROVSKI OPTIK allow you to adapt to each situation without having to compromise on performance or features. Modular flexibility, ergonomic design and user friendliness combine to bring about a real revolution in the history of the spotting scope and set new standards for the next generation. With this new design, the zoom and focusing rings are right next to each other, thereby ensuring that you can use the spotting scope intuitively and quickly, with just one hand. This reinvented design offers two eyepiece modules (angled or straight) and three objective modules with diameters of 65, 85 and 95 mm, all with SWAROVISION technology, to combine and provide a total of six different spotting scopes to suit every viewing opportunity.

The ATX/STX spotting scopes have an optical quality that has never before been achieved by a spotting scope. With the SWAROVISION technology, they feature field flattener lenses to produce an image with razor-sharp clarity right up to the edge, without the need for constant refocusing. The HD lenses provide rich contrast, and exceptional color fidelity. They offer a wide field of view, extended eye relief, and are complete with SWAROVSKI OPTIK's optimized specialty coatings, SWARODUR, SWAROTOP, and SWAROCLEAN.
