Opticron GS & GS ED Fieldscopes

Introduced in response to growing demand for quality lightweight nitrogen waterproof telescopes and developed around an optical system featuring objective lens sizes of 66.5mm and 81.5mm, GS fieldscopes set the standard for customers wanting to take-out and walk-about with their equipment whether pursuing birdwatching or general wildlife observation.

The models are designed and manufactured to meet the three main requirements demanded by today's active fieldscope user; 'high end' optical performance and value, usability and reliability.
Opticron GS & GS ED Fieldscopes

Opticron GS 52 GA ED Straight Field Scope - 40956

Opticron GS 52 GA ED Straight Field Scope - 40956
Introduced in response to increasing demand for quality travelscopes, the GS 52 GA ED sets new standards for light transmission, resolution and colour contrast offering today's birdwatcher a practical and versatile alternative to larger heavier telescopes in situations where size and weight are an issue.

Fitted with full-size 24mm prisms from the larger GS, the models deliver optimum light transmission from the 52mm twin-element ED objective lens. Using the HDF T 12-36x eyepiece set between 12x and 18x, the instruments transmit exceptionally bright high contrast images with excellent depth of focus - perfect for hand held or tripod mounted observation between 100m and 200m. Unlike other telescopes of similar size, the GS 52 GA ED retains it’s performance up to 36x, delivering superior colour fidelity for longer range viewing, even in comparatively low light..

Images are not just brighter, they are sharper too. Fitted with the HR2, HDF T or SDL eyepieces, the GS 52 GA ED compares well with the standard GS 665 GA for resolution at magnifications up to 30x. Field of view is also enhanced with certain eyepieces; +30% against the smaller MM2 52 ED with the HDF T 13xWW, and +20% with the HDF T 18xWW.

At just 200mm long, the GS 52 GS ED is designated a Travelscope but features the centrally positioned twin focusing system from the full-size GS models to allow accurate focusing adjustment at higher magnification settings. For garden birdwatching and photography, close focus has been set at just 2.5m.

Fully rubber armoured and nitrogen gas filled for protection against the elements, the models are fitted with a lightweight magnesium tripod sleeve offering -/+ 90° each-way rotation for easier positioning when viewing from the confines of a hide or vehicle.

Fully tested for continuous trouble free use in varying temperatures, GS 52 GA ED travelscopes are supplied with the assurance of limited 30 year guarantee and are fully compatible with the current range of SDL, HDF and HR2 eyepieces and telephoto accessories.

Opticron GS 665 GA Straight Field Scope - 40960

Opticron GS 665 GA Straight Field Scope - 40960
GS Fieldscopes are protected by 'full body' natural rubber armour with a textured finish to the top half of the main body prism housing. The centrally positioned focusing wheel allows easy access for both right and left handed users and is also rubber covered - delivering a positive feel with or without gloves.

The focusing system is designed to allow adjustment from infinity to 50 metres in just a 270° turn. Housed within the same mechanism for convenience is a 9:1 ratio accurate focus adjustment.

Having access to full range of different magnification eyepieces is also important. The GS series are fully compatible with Opticron SDL, HDF & HR eyepieces including; 40862G HDF T 16-48x (665) / 20-60x (815) 40809 HDF T 25xWW (665) / 32xWW (815).

Designed to enable rotation around the main axis of the instrument for use on a bipod or in a hide with a high window, GS fieldscopes feature a solid die-cast tripod sleeve with -/+ 90 degrees each-way action with 45° incremental 'stops.'

Reliability
Extensively tested for continuous trouble free use in varying temperatures, the
models are fully nitrogen gas filled and waterproof and come with the assurance of a
30 year guarantee.

By using ED - extra low dispersion glass elements in the primary objective system, these fieldscopes provide a higher degree of colour correction when compared to conventional glass objectives. More apparent at higher magnifications and under certain light conditions (e.g. when looking over water on a bright warm day) the image appears sharper and colours remain truer to life across the magnification range. The ability to bring into clear and sharp focus indistinct objects such as coloured identification rings or shades of plumage in poor light over long distances are the hallmarks of an GS ED fieldscope.

Extensively tested for continuous trouble free use in varying temperatures, the
models are fully nitrogen gas filled and waterproof and come with the assurance of a
