For distant subjects, nothing beats the optical clarity and magnification of spotting scopes. Optics4Birding carries a full range of spotting scopes and accessories for birders, bird researchers, and tour operators. Our line of spotting scopes are also great for photography, shooting sports, and many other outdoor activities.

Why Choose A Spotting Scope?

Monoculars and binoculars generally have a maximum magnification of 15x, while spotting scopes may have up to 75x. This extra power lets you focus on subjects far outside the range of smaller optical devices. This increased range gives birders the chance to spot easily-startled or skittish species at a distance, allowing the birder to see the birds before the birds see them.

Another benefit of spotting scopes is their large objective lenses of 60mm or more let in more light and allow the birder to see birds under very low light conditions. Many spotting scopes have a generous eye relief, too, which ensures long-term viewing comfort and full field viewing while wearing eyeglasses.

Don’t Forget the Spotting Scope Accessories

Spotting scopes tend to be large and heavy optical devices, and are meant to be used with a stable tripod for the best viewing experience. You can trust Optics4Birding to carry a huge selection of tripods from quality manufacturers like Manfrotto, Vanguard, Slik, and Nikon. Tripods help to stabilize the optic, reducing shake and vibration to give the viewer the best image possible. Tripods, of course, can be used to stabilize other optics and camera equipment as well. Smooth-operating fluid heads let birders track moving subjects with ease.

Many spotting scopes can use camera adapters or smart phone adapters so that birders can capture digital or film photographs of the birds they observe. These adapters mount to the eyepiece of many spotting scope models. Swarovski Spotting Scopes, Kowa Spotting Scopesand Zeiss Spotting Scopes each have their own set of digiscoping adapters and Novagrade and Sayegh Digidapter have aftermarket adapters to attach your camera for that record snapshot!

To protect your expensive spotting scope from damage while in transit to the wilderness, we also carry a full line of scope cases. These lightly-padded protective cases keep the dust and moisture away from delicate optics when traveling by car or airplane.

Optics4Birding carries a great selection of eyepiece accessories, replacement eyepiece lenses, and, objective covers – everything you need to keep your spotting scope clean and ready to capture amazing images of distant objects.
