Choice Views in a Compact Package

Traveling is at an all time high and the interest in compact sport optics reflects this trend. Some of you have the natural ability to pack light while some of us don't. Being in the "don't" category, I am already a big fan of the high end compact binoculars offered by Nikon, Zeiss, Leica, and Swarovski. They offer excellent performance in a petite, convenient package. Now this same convenience can be found with Nikon's small-scale Fieldscope 13-30x50 ED spotting scope, available in angled or straight. Pair this scope with the Bogen 560B nk_fsed_8321_200.jpgMonopod with fluid head and you have a superb set-up for the birder, backpacker, or hunter who demands distinct performance and super compact design in the optics they pack.


The Nikon Fieldscope 13-30x50 ED mimics the big league optical quality of the full sized Fieldscope's great details, bright images and improved resolution at higher magnifications. For the "travel light crowd" the 50mm weighs only 16.6 ounces and measures a very tiny 8.1 inches with the eyepiece. Not only does this little scope offer premium glass with fully multi-coated optics, you can purchase different interchangeable, multi-coated eyepieces to fit the Fieldscope. Nikon's Fieldscope eyepieces fit all sizes of the Fieldscope, 50mm, 60mm, or the 82mm scope alike. The option of an interchangeable eyepiece is rarely available for a compact spotting scope .


Mount this little spotting scope gem on top of the Bogen Monopod 560B with fluid headbg_560B_200.jpg. Since the Eagle Optics Staff first saw this monopod, we have been very impressed with its design quality and ease of use. Weighing only 1.5 pounds with a minimum length of 26 inches, you can have the 50mm Fieldscope's high quality performance at your fingertips for a total of only 3 pounds. Some tripod legs and tripod heads can weigh as much as 7 pounds when combined. Even the super compact Bogen Manfrotto 728B Digi Tripod Kit weighs 3.9 pounds. The 560B monopod can also provide a lightweight and stable base for the binocular user who wants to use a higher magnification.


Human nature being what it is, we will often leave behind any equipment we find a hassle to carry or operate. The Nikon Fieldscope 13-30x50 ED spotting scope and Bogen Monopod 560B with fluid head offers an enviable combination you will always want at hand.
