Overview: The Celestron Regal M2 80ED is a high-quality
spotting scope with advanced features. It has 20-60x magnification with a 80mm
objective lens that gives you razor sharp images. It is recommended for bird
watching, nature observing, long distance viewing, and casual astronomical
viewing. The lightweight magnesium alloy body is approximately 14% lighter than
previous models. The Regal M2 is fully waterproof and nitrogen-purged to prevent
fogging. It is tripod-mountable, and comes with a sturdy zippered carrying case.
Dual Focus System: The Regal M2's dual focusing system
includes a coarse and a fine focus knob. You can turn the coarse focus knob
until the object is clearly visible, then adjust the fine focus, located in
front of the coarse knob, until the image in the eyepiece is clear and sharp.
Optics: The spotting scope is equipped with Extra-low
Dispersion (ED) glass, usually found on more expensive scopes. Fully
multi-coated optics and a BaK-4 prism provide great image detail and brighter
images, even in low light. The Regal M2's 20-60x zoom eyepiece gives you a wide
field of view for locating your subject, then zooming in close. It has a
twist-up eyecup to let you position your eye properly with or without
eyeglasses. The scope has a standard 1.25" eyepiece mount, which allows you to
swap out the supplied eyepiece for a variety astronomical eyepieces.
T-Adapter: You can quickly convert the Regal M2 into a
photographic scope with the included T-adapter. The T-adapter is threaded, and
will accept a special T-Ring for DSLR or film cameras from
