Celestron Regal M2 80mm ED Angled Spotting Scope w/ 20-60x Zoom

The Regal M2 ED spotting scope is the finest Celestron has ever offered. The APO optical design employing extra-low (ED) glass ensures the highest levels of contrast, color fidelity and sharpness. ED glass reduces false color inherent in low-cost spotting scopes, and all optical surfaces are fully multicoated with Celestron's XLT coatings for maximum light transmission and contrast.

The body of the Regal M2 spotting scope is made from magnesium alloy, which helps reduce the weight, while providing good structural integrity essential for hard outdoor use.

Like some popular expensive spotting scopes, the Regal M2 ED series includes a dual-speed co-axial focus control. Coarse focus is great for making quick transitions from near to far objects and focusing on extremely close subjects, while the fine focus is great for distant subjects and for achieving the critical focus neccessary for photography.

It comes with a camera adapter. Simply thread the camera adapter onto the eyepiece, screw a *T2 ring (sold separately) onto the eyepiece, and it's ready to accept your SLR or DSLR camera.
