Setting the standard for optical quality the GS 52 GA ED offers a practical alternative to larger spottingscopes in situations where size and weight are an issue. Fitted with the HDF T 12-36x set between 12x and 18x, images are exceptionally bright with a large depth of field - perfect for hand held or tripod mounted observation. Unlike other travelscopes, the full size prism units allow the models to retain their performance up to 36x, delivering superior color fidelity even in comparatively low light. Images are brighter and sharper too. For backyard birding and photography close focus is just 8.2ft.

Fully rubber armored and nitrogen gas filled for protection against the elements, the models are fitted with a lightweight magnesium tripod sleeve offering -/+ 90° rotation for easier positioning when viewing from the confines of a hide/blind or vehicle.

Fully tested for continuous trouble free use in varying temperatures, GS 52 GA ED Travelscopes are supplied with the assurance of a Limited Lifetime Warranty and are fully compatible with SDL, HDF T eyepieces and telephoto accessories.
