Our take on the Nikon 20-60 x 85mm Angled Body EDG Fieldscopeby Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
The exceptional is standard
This high-magnification, high-precision spotting scope offers everything you'd expect from Nikon: superb optical elements, impeccable build quality, and logical, ergonomic design. But there are also the things that distinguish this fieldscope from the rest of the pack, and keep it at the top of its class.
The angled eyepiece makes it easy to adjust this scope so it's quickly useable for people of differing heights — something that will come in handy during your family vacation in the mountains or at the beach.
Impeccable optics mean impeccable images
A variable-focal-length 20-60X eyepiece receives impressive amounts of light from a bright 85mm objective lens, so even when you're zoomed in at 60X, you'll notice that low light isn't quite the challenge you may have feared. Redesigned internal prisms and extra-low-dispersion glass elements have been engineered to deliver high-contrast, color-accurate images down the light path. The scope has been internally nitrogen-purged and O-ring sealed for fog-proof and waterproof performance. Plus, an included sliding sunshade protects the front objective from being struck by dust or rain when you're tracking that elusive bird in the wilderness.

Overview: The Nikon EDG 85-A Angled-body Fieldscope includes the 20-60x Zoom Eyepiece, which screws into the scope body. The fieldscope comes with a soft, padded neoprene storage case and a shoulder strap. The EDG 85-A can be mounted to a tripod with a standard 1/4" tripod thread.
Water-Resistant: The EDG 85-A fieldscope is waterproof, and will not suffer damage to the internal optics if dropped or submerged in water up to a depth of 1 meter for up to 5 minutes. It is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to protect the lenses and prism from condensation and mold.

These high-grade optics are fully coated in multiple layers of anti-reflective compounds for bright resolution and brilliant color.
