Overview: The Nikon Prostaff 5 Fieldscope Outfit includes
the Prostaff 5 20-60x82 zoom fieldscope and a full-size premium tripod. The
2-piece fieldscope includes a separate eyepiece, which mounts to the scope body.
The scope includes a soft, padded neoprene stay-on case and a shoulder strap. The
included tripod has operating height adjustment from 22.5" to 57.5".
Water-Resistant: The Prostaff 5 fieldscope body itself is waterproof,
and is nitrogen-filled and O-ring
sealed to protect the internal optics from condensation
and mold. With the eyepiece attached, the fieldscope is water-resistant, with no
water penetration during normal use (as tested by water equivalent to more than
1mm per minute falling from a height of more than 200mm for a duration of 10
Multi-coated Optics: The Prostaff 5 fieldscope features
high-quality multi-coated Nikon optics that provide a bright, high-contrast
image with true color rendition. Internal surface texturing minimizes reflective
light loss inside the scope.
Objective Hood: The 82mm objective lens has a built-in
sliding hood to eliminate glare in bright conditions, and keeps dust and rain
off the objective lens in rainy or dusty conditions. The hood can extend
approximately 1.75" past the end of the lens.
Eyepiece: The Prostaff fieldscope includes the SEP-20-60
eyepiece, which mounts to the scope body. You can adjust the zoom from 20x to
60x by turning the zooming ring. The eyepiece has a rubber eyecup that can be
extended for non-eyeglass wearers and retracted for eyeglass wearers.
Digiscoping: With the optional
FSB-UC bracket, you can attach select Nikon Coolpix cameras to the eyepiece
for taking digital photographs through the fieldscope.
Tripod: The included tripod features 3-section telescoping
legs with quick lever leg locks. The quick release
platform can be mounted to the bottom of the scope with the standard 1/4"
mounting screw. This allows you to quickly mount and release the scope from the
tripod as you desire. The tripod has a manual elevating center column with a vertical range of
approximately 11.5". The panhead can rotate 360° and tilt 135° (-45° to +90°).
The tripod has a minimum height of 22.5" (46" with legs extended). The maximum
operating height is 57.5". The tripod folds to a length of 23.75" for storage.
