Product Description

Swarovski Optik observation spotting scopes will impress with their brilliant performance, fine resolution, extremely ergonomic design and unique functionality. Digiscoping (photography through spotting scopes) accessories are available. Spotting scope bodies are sold separately from the eyepiece, an eyepiece is necessary for viewing.


With Swarovski Optik spotting scopes, you’ll always have a balcony view. The Swarovski STS 80 HD spotting scope, for instance, offers such features as outstanding long-distance focusing, high light transmission, and ultra-high magnification power, turning every observation into an adventure. The aluminum STS 80 sports a large 80mm objective lens diameter and excellent light-gathering qualities, letting you observe objects in razor-sharp detail

The spotting scope comes with Swarovski’s 20-60x eyepiece.even at high magnifications and in low-light conditions. Every bit as important are the fluoride-containing HD lenses, which minimize color fringing (chromatic aberration) and deliver high-contrast images with precise outlines. The HD lenses are terrific for regular viewing, but they’re particularly valuable for digital photographers who want to take pictures through the spotting scope. And thanks to the scope’s straight-angle housing, it’s easy to locate and follow birds in flight, or to observe from a car without being seen.

Unlike many Swarovski scopes, this model comes with a 20-60x eyepiece that’s terrific for dynamic birding situations. That’s because the eyepiece lets you scan the terrain with a broad field of view (108 to 60 feet at 1,000 yards), or zoom in close to identify a specific bird. In addition, the eyepiece accommodates eyeglasses wearers thanks to its individually adjustable twist-in eyecups, which are removable for cleaning. And, like all Swarovski optics, the eyepiece produces luminous, diamond-bright images with edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire magnification range.

Each spotting scope in the Swarovski Optik collection is well built and protected from scratches or dents. The scopes’ enhanced Swarodur or Swarotop coatings guarantee lifelike color reproduction and outstanding image brightness even at dusk. The scopes also feature a nonstick Swaroclean coating on the outer surface of each lens. The coating–which helps extend the lifespan of your lens–is particularly effective when you need to remove dried-on mineral residues (such as water marks from condensation), insect repellents, and tree resin. Finally, each Swarovski scope boasts a rubber armoring that protects against shock and noise. Dustproof, waterproof, and submersible to 13 feet, the STS 80 HD spotting scope carries a lifetime warranty.

      About Swarovski Optik
      Although founded in 1949, Swarovski Optik’s roots actually trace all the way back to 1895, when Austrian Daniel Swarovski–who invented the world’s first electric grinding machine for jewelry stones–established the family-owned Swarovski Crystal in the province of Tyrol. Since then, the name Swarovski has become synonymous worldwide with the clearest crystal, precision grinding, and a brilliant spirit of innovation, as the original enterprise continued branching out into additional lines of business.

      Swarovski Optik owes its rise to Wilhelm Swarovski, son of the original founder and an avid hobby astronomer, who decided to build his own improved binocular in 1935 at a mere 17 years of age. With access to the specialized glass production and finishing technologies already used to manufacture jewelry stones in his father’s factory, Wilhelm managed to develop a novel prism fabrication and grinding process that he applied in constructing his first 6×30 binocular. Wilhelm went on to found Swarovski Optik KG in Absam, Tyrol, in 1949, thus laying the foundation for a sports optics company with a global reputation. His company’s first serial product, the Habicht 7×42, is still an industry standard in the field of hunting optics and continues to be produced in the best tradition of its founder.
