TS Optics Premium Spotting Scope BW80Z 20-60x 80 mm aperture
This TS spotting scope is a real multi-talent and suited for almost all areas of application. With the TS BW80Z, you have a complete telescope, a telephoto lens and a spotting scope in one. Everything is complete and ready to use. And the application areas are highly diverse:
Birding and animal watching
Landscape observing
Trecking, hunting and safari - the spotting scope is waterproof
Astronomy - you can also use your 1.25" astro eyepieces for increasing magnification up to approx. 120x
Digiscoping - you can attach your camera with the optional TS BW spotting scope camera adapter and also screw it firmly to the spotting scope.
Marksmen - the spotting scope displays the target sharply even if it is in large distance, you can can see the bullet holes very well.

The BW80Z Spotting Scope offers:
It is ideal for bird and nature observing, for a view into the distance ar an occasional view into the sky. The BW series of the TS-Optics´ spotting scopes offers all features known from significantly more expensive spotting scopes.
Through the 360° click-stop rotation, people like marksmen have the possibility to get the best insight angle for them.
The TS BW spotting scope are waterproof and against fogging, nitrogen-filled.
Wide-angle zoom eyepiece with continous magnification from 20 to 60x
Due to the 1.25" (31.7 mm) receptacle, many telescope eyepieces can be used. For example, you get 120x magnification with the optional TS-Optics Planetary 4 mm. Suitable eyepieces are linked in the accessories section.
Adjustable twist eyecups for achieving the optimal eye relief for spectacle wearers.
The base has three 1/4" photo threads, so you can better belance the spotting scope out or attach it to many astronomical mounts with dovetail bar.

Photography with this spotting scope:

The TS-Optics BW80Z is ready for digiscoping. With the supplied camera adapter, you can take beautiful photos through the spotting scope and use it as telephoto lens.

The adaption could not be easier: Screw the camera adaptor on the zoom and then attach your digital camera with the optional T2 ring or objective adapter (if you don´t have a camera with interschangeable lens) and you can take great photographs through the spotting scope.

The magnification factor of the zoom is kept here - the spotting scope turns into a telephoto lens with a variable focal length between approx. 400 mm and 1200 mm.

Photographing through the spotting scope with the smartphone
Modern smartphones now have very good cameras. With the items # TSSMH-DEL (smartphone holder) and the TSSMHDEL-T2 (T2 adapter) you can screw the smartphone directly to the photo adapter and have a stable and precise connection for spectacular shots through the spotting scope.

Special features in detail:

1.25" eyepiece connection with locking system

The 1.25" eyepiece connection is established at professional telescopes for quite some time. The advantages are obvious. You can quickly change eyepieces and have the complete range of professional eyepieces at hand.

For example, you can achieve 120x magnification with the planetary eyepiece HR4.

How do I calculate the magnification?

That is very easy. The spotting scope has a focal length of 480 mm. Just divide the spotting scope´s focal length by the focal length of the eyepiece and obtain the magnification.

Example: 480mm / 4mm (focal length of HR 4 eyepiece) = 120x

Coarse focusing and fine focusing for perfect sharpness

Use the coarse focusing for quick viewing. When birding, for example, you have to change the focal plane quickly for not missing the motif.

At the same rotary knob, you have the micro transmission for observing something in detail. Especially in photography through the spotting scope, exact focusing is very important for perfect results.

The carrying bag:

The provided bag is more than just a container. Of course, the padded bag will perform this task very well.

But can also mount the spotting scope onto a tripod with the bag. The coverings of lens, eyepiece and focusing are opened, the rest of the spotting scope stays protected. Thus the operation in very humid environmental conditions is possible, for example when hunting. The tripod is not included.

Versatile tripod connection and 360° click-stop rotation:

The tripod connection of the BW80Z spotting scope is elaborate, too. It offers a 360° click-stop rotation if the insight should be at the side instead of at top.

The connector offers three 1/4" photo threads, so you can better balance the spotting scope or even attach it to many astronomical mounts by using an optional dovetail bar.

"Gutes Spektiv für Sportschützen bis 100m auch bei nicht so gutem Wetter. Bei manchen Okularen für Astronomie ist Bauartbedingt doch zu wenig Fokusweg vorhanden. (zB. Hyperion 10mm) und der einsatz von Filtern ist nicht immer möglich. Trotzdem lässt es sich besser als Teleskop einsetzen als so manch anderes Spektiv!"
