The straight view Prostaff 3 16-48x60 Spotting Scope Kit from Nikon combines a fully multicoated optical path and a weather-sealed housing to create a well-equipped optic for intermediate to long-range observations. In addition to the 16-48x60 spotting scope, this outfit includes a multi-section tripod with lever lock-adjustable legs and a pan/tilt head as well as a soft carrying case to conveniently transport this Fieldscope system. At the core of Nikon's Prostaff 3 spotting scope are environmentally-friendly Eco-Glass elements and prisms that are composed of responsibly-sourced arsenic-free material. The entire optical system is fully multicoated, resulting in enhanced low-light performance and contrast-rich images that are crisp throughout the zoom range. A nitrogen-filled fogproof/waterproof housing, 11-foot close focus distance, and included accessories make the Prostaff 3 16-48x60 outfit a full-featured spotting scope kit for almost any recreational glassing activity.
