This Kit pairs the Ultima 80 3.1"/80mm Spotting Scope from Celestron with the Photographic/Video Tripod w/ Quick Release 3-Way Head also from Celestron, for a perfect match.
The Ultima 80 Spotting Scope features a 45° viewing angle for comfort and ease-of-use, whether for quick glimpses or long-term viewing. This 80mm refractor has multi-coated optics packed into a portable and durable design that is as cool looking as it is practical. It comes with a 20-60x zoom eyepiece.
The Ultima 80 3.1"/80mm Spotting Scope is the perfect choice for observing fleeting moments of nature or long distance spotting. Since it is waterproof you don't have to worry about using it in bad weather. The green rubber optical tube increases its protection from bumps and bruises. There is a soft carrying case included.
This very practical scope is bundled with a very practical tripod made by Celestron specifically for Celestron's scopes. The Photographic/Video Tripod w/ Quick Release 3-Way Head is extremely light and portable, while at the same time, providing a stable and steady platform for a mid-size optical, such as the Ultima 80 Spotting Scope. The tripod features a quick release bracket and pan handle control. It includes a 1/4"-20 mounting screw. Its 90° vertical platform has a central column with geared elevator and adjustable tension. There is a convenient and helpful horizontal and vertical bubble level for leveling the scope. The lock and loose knob is prominently accessible. The tripod extends as high as 63 inches.
These two; the Ultima 80 and the included Tripod will make a great scope-spotting couple for many happy years to come.
The angled viewing Ultima 80 3.1"/80mm Spotting Scope Kit from Celestron features a prismatic spotting scope with an 80mm objective.
All models in the Ultima line are mated to an eyepiece and render views which are both right side up and laterally correct to the world, making them good for both terrestrial and celestial observing. All Ultimas are waterproof, making them more robust than ever before. Celestron surely is delivering exceptional value.
The Ultima line offers the choice between 45° angled viewing or straight viewing. Most users will prefer angled scopes because they are both simple to use for birds perched high above the viewer, as well as easily shared among users of differing heights. But some will prefer the straight viewing models, for these are much easier to use when hunting down the object of interest in the first place. Straight viewing models are also usually a bit lighter, brighter, and less expensive. The choice is yours.
Certain Celestron products include their "No Fault" warranty coverage, which assures that your spotting scope will be repaired or replaced at Celestron's option for as long as you own tit, no questions asked! The only requirements on the user's end are to ship the spotting scope (at the user's cost) to Celestron, with proof of purchase and a check or money order for $25 to cover the costs of inspection, shipping and handling. This warranty service is valid only for USA and Candadian citizens purchasing from an authorized Celestron dealer.
This Celestron 3-leg section tripod features a 3-way panhead with quick release plate, and a geared center column with adjustable tension. A sturdy tripod ideal to support the Celestron line of binoculars (except 20x80 and 25x100 SkyMaster), or the Ultima 65 and 80mm spotting scopes.
