The optical system of the APO-Televid 82 combines apochromatic optics with fluoride glass and a substantial 82 mm objective to bring a significant increase in light-throughput to the viewing experience. From dawn till dusk, the APO-Televid reveals astounding intimate high-resolution views of flora, fauna, and vistas. This APO-Televid 82 features straight-through viewing that's favored for rapid subject location. The optional 25-50x WW aspherical eyepiece is highly recommended as a matching ocular for this scope - its wide FOV delivers a wrap-around viewing experience that pairs well with the refined optics of the Televid scope. Leica's legendary optical performance becomes quite apparent when viewing through the APO-Televid 82 - apochromatic color-accuracy, fluoride lenses for startling high-contrast imaging, full multicoating throughout the system, and the addition of Leica's proprietary AquaDura protective coatings all combine to produce scenic wonder without compromise.
