Description

With a huge magnification range; sharp, bright optics; and rugged, waterproof construction, the Leupold 20-60x80mm Spotting Scope gives you incredible power and flexibility in a rugged, field-ready optic. This spotting scope's incredible range of magnification and power make it a versatile, capable choice for serious birders or a day at the range.

 

With two models available - a straight body or a 45-degree angled body - you can choose the spotting scope best for viewing in any position. The rotating tripod mount enables flexibility in viewing, and an extendable lens shade eliminates glare, even in high-glare situations.

 

Leupold spotting scopes have outstanding optics with multi-coated lenses to ensure high photopic transmission for excellent resolution, contrast, and brightness. A twist-up eyecup and generous eye box make viewing a pleasure, even with glasses. This spotting scope is waterproof, fog-proof, and built for the wilderness with a tough, rugged armor. Limited lifetime warranty.

 

From humble immigrant beginnings, Leupold grew, based on a promise of quality, to become a classic American company. In 1907, Fred Leupold set up a one-man shop at 5th and Oak streets in Portland, Ore., to repair surveying equipment. He was joined by his brother-in-law, Adam Voelpel, and later by inventor John Cyprian Stevens, and the foundations for a century of success were in place.

 

During Leupold's second half-century, the company has focused heavily on the sports optics business. Leupold's presence in the hunting and shooting market expands, and finally dominates, with innovative optics and features that are now legendary among hunters, shooters, and outdoors enthusiasts. Many of the industry's standards - nitrogen waterproofing, the Duplex reticle, and more - are Leupold creations.

I bought the scope on a close out price. Got a great deal on a great scope. The shipping was free and super fast, at the busiest (Christmas) time of the year.

Comments about Leupold Sequoia 20-60x80 Spotting Scope:

The scope is big and heavy. Given the size, it is better suited to static positions not that exposed to wind. In a light breeze it started to catch the wind like a sail.

The center of gravity is at least 1-2 inches away from the tripod attachment point. The scope naturally wants to point to the floor. A strong tripod is required. (VCR camera tripod). I read the reviews about the weight and I didn't buy the kit (case and tripod). I'm very happy I didn't buy the kit.

Other reviews complained about the quality at 60x magnification. The image is fine.

If you need to observe some thing at 40x for extended periods I'd buy the scope. I'd buy the 15-45x60 if I could do it again. 45 mag is fine and the reduced weight and size make for a better field scope.

Customer Q & A

Q1: What is the Multicoat 4 lens system?

A: Multicoat 4 greatly increases the amount of all available light that reaches your eye, while at the same time, it minimizes the reflections of the sky on the outer eyepiece.
