First showcased in the early months of 2015 during the gun industry's trade shows season, Swarovski STR 80 spotting scope is currently one of the best available on the market in this category.
Manufactured following the most rigid quality canons and specifics that the Austrian company is known for, the Swarovski STR 80 is packed with features that make it perfect for a plethora of uses including spotting, observation, image-capturing and surveillance in fields such as hunting, long-range sport shooting, natural studies, hobbies, and professional uses.
One of the main features of the Swarovski STR 80 spotting scope is the reticle: available in MOA or MRAD variants, the reticle can be turned on and off, and is projected on the first focal plane; it can thus be used all through the field of zoom, with a separate diopter compensation system.
The reticle illumination system allows the user to select between ten different illumination settings for daytime use and five different settings for night-time use.
This allows the Swarovski STR 80 to pass easily from simple observation to target distance evaluation with no hassle whatsoever. In uses such as hunting or long-range sport shooting, this also enables the user to evaluate the possibility of a miss shot and to adjust his or her riflescope accordingly.
The Swarovski STR 80 spotting scopes also feature an 80 mm-diameter front lens and fluoride-based, crystal clear HD glasses, offering extremely high image clarity and light transmission levels even in some of the worst possible environmental lighting conditions.
The chassis of the Swarovski STR 80 riflescopes is manufactured out of machined aluminum which is in turn protected by a shock-proof, non-slip, anti-glare rubberized coating and proof-tested for resistance in most climatic conditions.
Last, but not least, the combination of an internal focus system and a gas filling makes it dirt-proof, dust-proof, and waterproof up to four meters in depth.
The Swarovski STR 80 spotting scope is factory-compatible with a wide array of tripods, and can be fitted with a TLS APO interface for SLR-type cameras or with the PA-i5 adapter for Apple iPhone 5/5S smartphones.
Some of its factory-standard accessories include a lens cover and a ballistic turret tool. Other accessories, sold separately, include a set of MSR guides and WE eyepieces, and the SSR II balanced base.
The Swarovski STR 80 spotting scope is currently available for commercial sales worldwide; its suggested retail price is set at €3,250.00 in Europe and $3,689.00 in the United States, but street prices may vary.
