Spotting scopes in the Sportview series are designed for reliable use. We call these entry-level spotting scopes because of their reasonable price point and because they are sold as a kit. However, these are serious optics products and will serve a more advanced user well. These scopes are not designed for heavy use in the filed since they are not water proof or fog proof, but they are built to for reliability with solid construction and fully multi-coated optics components.
The models in the Sportview product line are designed with the most popular optical settings for spotting scopes. The Sportview 781545 has a 15x-45x zoom capability with a 50mm objective lens. The Sportview 782061 uses a 60mm objective lens and provides zoom capabilities from 20x up to 60x magnification. Both of the scopes in the Sportview series come with a hard carrying case and a tabletop tripod. These scopes are a good value choice for bird watching, target shooting, wildlife observation or hunting.
