The sleek 80mm spotting scope body by Swarovski sets the pace in advanced field optics. Available with a straight or angled body, this sturdy scope is constructed of a durable high-quality alloy and sheathed in tough rubber armor to enhance shock absorption and protect it from the knocks and pings of field use. The sophisticated high-definition instruments allow for a sharp focus as close as 16ft, while the rugged engineering ensures waterproof integrity to an immersion of up to 13ft.
The ATS/STS 80 (HD) (High-Definition) observation telescopes set the highest standards among telescopes in this category. Even with the easy-to-handle, fully-rubberized armoring, the ATA/STS 80 (HD) are by far the lightest of the larger observation telescopes. Thanks to a recalculated optical system, they offer precise observation of detail, optimum edge-to-edge images, and almost 100% color fidelity with an extremely wide field of view, thereby achieving revolutionary image quality.
New easy-to-clean external coating for lenses makes it considerably easier to clean the objective and ocular lenses. Thanks to improved cleaning, the lenses need less intensive attention to achieve maximum clarity. This considerably increases the longevity of optical products
Extremely high-quality optical system enables totally natural color reproduction and precision observation of detail, even when light conditions are poor
HD (High-Definition) instruments help to eradicate the slightest chromatic zonal aberrations and contributes to a more faithful color image
Very lightweight for ATS 80 (HD) of only 1300 g/45.9 oz (1350 g/47.6 oz) and for STS (HD) of only 1280 g/45.2 oz (1330 g/46.9 oz). By far the lightest of the larger observation telescopes
Extremely short close-focusing down to only 16 ft (5 m)
Easy-grip, ergonomically-positioned focusing ring with larger grooves for quick and precise focusing
Removable aid for quick target pick-up.
Integrated objective lens protection stops glare and diffused light as well as protecting against rain and snow.

Automatic safeguard against accidental unscrewing of the eyepieces.
Full field of view, even for spectacle wearers, due to individually adjustable twist-in eyecups.

Q: "Could you tell me what the letters STS, ATS and HD stand for with your scopes? Thank you. I'm trying to figure out the difference between your 80 mm scope, ATS-HD vs. ATS, and STS-HD and STS. Thank you . Mary Holland"
A: Hi, Mary:
STS stands for Straight SpotTing Scope, and ATS stands for Angled SpotTing Scope. HD is for High-Definition glass, which is MUCH better than standard glass.
Q: "Will the STS-80 mount to a Nikon SLR camera?"
A: Yes, you can use a Nikon SLR camera with a Swarovski STS-80 scope. You'll need a Swarovski TLS800mm Camera Adapter, plus a T-ring for your Nikon camera.
