Overview: The Nikon Prostaff 3 Fieldscope Outfit includes
the Prostaff 3 16-48x60 zoom fieldscope and a tripod. The fieldscope is
waterproof, so you can use it in wet or high humidity conditions without worry.
The compact tripod has operating height adjustment from 15.5" to 44". The outfit
includes a soft, padded carrying case and a shoulder strap, which holds both the
scope and tripod.
Waterproof: The Prostaff 3 fieldscope is waterproof, and can
be used underwater at a maximum depth of 1 meter (3.3 feet) for up to 10 minutes
without damaging the optical system. The scope body is nitrogen-filled and O-ring
sealed to prevent fogging, and to protect the internal optics from condensation
Multi-coated Optics: The Prostaff 3 fieldscope features
high-quality Nikon optics, with proprietary Eco-glass lens and prisms. The lenses feature multiple
layers of anti-reflective compounds for excellent brightness, rich color, and
Zoom Eyepiece: The fieldscope has a zoom eyepiece with dual
rotating rings for focusing and zooming. This allows you to easily find your
subject using the wide field of view, then zoom in for finer detail. The
eyepiece has a zoom range of 16x to 48x, and has markings at 20x and 30x.
Objective Cap: The flip-down type objective cap at the tip
of the lens barrel can be easily removed by hooking a finger on one of the two
tabs on the cap. The objective cap is tethered to the scope body, so you can let
it hang loose during use.
Rubber Coating: The body of the Prostaff 3 has a durable
rubber-armored coating to give you a non-slip grip, and to protect the
fieldscope in virtually any weather.
Tripod: The included tripod features 3-section telescoping
legs with radial leg braces and 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 center column with a vertical range of
approximately 7.5". The panhead can rotate 360° and tilt approximately 160°.
