03/31/2017 - IWA 2017 / New from Swarovski: BTX spotting scope. At the trade expo in Nuremberg, the Austrian optics manufacturer presented its BTX telescope system, which comes in various sizes. It is unique for having two eyepieces. Read on for more information on the characteristics and technical data of the various models: BTX 30×65, BTX 30×85 and BTX 35×95.
An almost perfect combination of a binoculars, telescope and spotting scope – that is the Swarovski BTX with two eyepieces. The new spotting scope is compatible with all objectives from the ATX/STX families, and offers 30× or 35× magnification. With an optionally available ME 1.7× extender, it is even possible to increase magnification to 50–60×.
The binocular system used corresponds to that of natural sight, thereby contributing to optimal viewing comfort. Steady yet relaxed observation – even over long periods of time – is no problem thanks to the slanted angle of view and the variably adjustable forehead support, which can even be fully retracted if necessary.
The Swarovski BTX spotting scope combines the acuity of both eyes and makes all details visible thanks to the exceptional optics. The objective modules can easily be interchanged with those of ATX and STX spotting scopes. This allows the BTX to be customized for the type of hunt at hand.
A targeting aid is installed above the right eyepiece to help the user reliably spot the target every time. The Swarovski BTX spotting scope is filled with an inert gas, making it waterproof up to a depth of four meters. Additional accessories are also available for the BTX, which will be available from specialist retailers from May 2017. Prices are not yet known, but we expect the recommended retail price to exceed 3,000 euros.
