Leica APO-Televid (82) Angled "Closer to Nature" Set

The Leica APO-Televid 82 features apochromatically corrected optics combined with the new FL lenses and an 82 mm diameter objective increase the light yield by more than 6 % and the imaging performance is clearly visible when viewing the finest, natural details and structures in the highest possible resolution.

For that little bit extra in terms of experiencing nature, especially in poor lighting conditions. Top-of-the-range spotting scope delivering professional standards for all users. An innovative 4-part fluoride lens objective for maximum color fidelity and richness of contrast. Optically neutral front lens glass to protect the APO optic and Leica AquaDura coating. Particularly short close focus distance of 3.9 meters. Rubber-protected magnesium housing, waterproofed up to 5 meters.

It is the perfect tool for experiencing nature at very close range. High-quality images can be captured with a camera using photo or digital adapters. The innovative Leica AquaDura coating considerably reduces these disturbing factors. As with the lotus plant, this new water and dirt-resistant protective layer on the outer glass surfaces ensures that dirt and moisture are barely able to take hold on the specially adapted surface structure of the optic.

The Gitzo Bird Watching Fluid Head is designed for bird watching and supports 13.23 pounds and provides ultra smooth movement. The Gitzo Mountaineer Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod has a load capacity of 39.7 pounds and has a maximum height of 65.7 “ and a minimum height of 5.9”. Its folded height is 22.1”.
