Meopta MeoPro HD 80 Spotting Scope Wins Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice Award

HAUPPAUGE, NY, May 16, 2016 – The Meopta MeoPro HD 80 spotting scope is the winner of this year’s Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice award in the spotting scope category. Beating out 11 competitors for this prestigious award – one of the largest fields in years – the MeoPro HD 80 impressed the test team with its “crystal clear Schott glass, high-speed center-barrel focus, and very appealing price”.

The MeoPro HD 80 is assembled in the United States at Meopta’s Long Island, New York facility using Czech components and is a favorite amongst guides and hunters who appreciate exceptional performance and durability in addition to stylish design.

Here are excerpts from the June-July 2016 issue of Outdoor Life:
“Most high-end spotting scopes ship with a variable-power eyepiece that can be swapped out for a fixed-power unit (usually 30X) that’s sold separately. The fixed-power eyepiece generally has better light transmission and field-of-view than the zoom. The problem is, few hunters actually buy the second eyepiece, so the versatility of the system is offset by the additional cost and dust-introducing components of the detachment mechanism.
Meopta has addressed this problem with the MeoPro 80, a lovely 80mm spotter that has an integrated, non-removable 20X–60X eyepiece. The simplicity of the scope allows Meopta to bring the MeoPro to market at about two-thirds of the cost of its flagship spotting scope, the 82mm MeoStar S2. But we found the MeoPro has nearly identical optical performance to its big brother.
It was runner-up in the 12-scope field for low-light performance. The MeoPro wowed the test team with its edge clarity, brightness, and durability. In a competitive field of high-power units, the Meopta was the spotter that testers reached for most frequently when they wanted to glass bull elk on a mountainside miles away, or to assess hits on our 600-yard rifle target.”
“We are honored that a Meopta optic has once again been named Editor’s Choice by the Outdoor Life test team,” said Reinhard Seipp, general manager and COO of Meopta USA. “We truly appreciate the time and effort the editors put into the rigorous testing of optics year after year, and it is very gratifying when experts like these recognize our efforts to produce exceptional optics at an attractive price point.”
MSRP: $1,724.99

Spotting Scope Clearance Sale

Spotting scope clearance sale:

Camera Land’s Fall Clearence Sale – Part 2

I announced this sale the other day with Part 1 (Riflescopes and Binoculars) and now it is time to continue with Spotting Scopes, Cameras and Tripods. Once I get thru this I will post Part 3 which will be a list of last of items (stuff we’ve got 1 left of at very reduced prices)

The prices posted here are for members of the forum who, thru the years, have supported us. If the price on our web site is higher than what is posted here you can do do one of two things:
1) Place the order on our site and in the note area type "Camera Land’s Fall Clearence Sale" and we will issue a refund back to your payment method down to these special prices
2) Call in your order to us at the store @ 212-753-5128

When it comes to spotting scopes there are many things to consider. Mainly, what are you using it for? The Range? The Field? Birding? Hunting? Digiscoping?
The other questions to ask are…
Is color resolution as important as stronger magnification?
Will you want interchangable eyepieces?
Do you want something there is a reticle eyepiece available for?
All valid considerations.

In a great quality, general use spotter we have some, same as new condition, show samples of the Minox MD 62 Straight (Part#62210) w/ 20-45x Zoom Eyepiece which sell for $848.00 new that we are offering for only $349.99

If a higher quality spotting scope is what you’d like and you would like to pay for an average quality one then grab one of these show sample Minox MD 62 ED Angled (Part#62213) with 20-45x Zoom Eyepiece @ 50% off of the $1098.00 it usually sells for. Only $549.99 while supply lasts. The ED offers richer color resolution and a high quality image.

In something smaller and handier, that you can always take with you, we have, as new, open box show samples of the:

#62226 MD-50 Straight Spotting Scope @ $189.99 reduced from $299.99

#62225 MD-50 Angled Spotting Scope @ $189.99 reduced from $299.99

The #62225 MD-50 Spotting Scope is small enough to carry in the water bottle holder on your pack. It is a great "Take everywhere" spotter.

With something this small and handy you may wish to use it with the Stedi-Stock Camera & Sport optic Shoulder Brace. This will help you hold a spotting scope stable without the weight of a tripod.

If a high end spotter is what you’re looking for with Digiscope quality featuring high color resolution as well as interchangable eyepieces then the Pentax PF80-ED Straight is one that you should consider. The PENTAX PF-80ED features extra low dispersion glass elements, a large 80 mm objective lens, and a nitrogen filled (JIS Class 6) waterproof body for the perfect blend of durability and outstanding image quality even under the most demanding conditions.
We have a package on this that includes:
* Pentax PF80-ED – The Straight Spotting Scope
* Pentax SMC 20-60x Zoom Zoom Eyepiece
* Promaster SHD Tripod
* Tripod Case
* Nikon Window Mount
* Lens Care Kit
This package goes for over $1400.00, but during this clearance it is only $1099.99 – Limited Quantity

In a Vortex the news is the 4 units that are new for 2011:
* Vortex Viper 15-45×65 Spotter available in Straight or Angled @ $449.99
* Vortex Viper 20-60×80 Spotter available in Straight or Angled for $699.99
* Vortex Viper HD 15-45×65 Spotter available in Straight or Angled for $549.99, only $100.00 more than the Non-HD version.
* Vortex Viper HD 20-60×80 Spotter available in Straight or Angled for $799.99, only $100.00 more than the non-HD version.

In their top of the line, with interchangable eyepieces is their Vortex Razor HD 20-60×85 Spotter available in Straight or Angled. This scope has an optional HD 30X Wide Angle Eyepiece as well as the HD 30X R/T Tactical Eyepiece.
The wide-angle nature of the Razor 30x eyepiece reveals a field of view that is wider than what you would see at 30x through the 20-60x zoom eyepiece. The fixed-power design also provides slightly better resolution than the zoom eyepiece. Vortex’s unique R/T ranging reticle provides precise target range estimation.

You can turn any point & shoot camera into a Digiscoping camera with your spotting scope by using the Nikon Universal Mounting Bracket (Part#6926). Universal Mounting Bracket (allows use of camcorders, digital camcorders, digital cameras, 35mm cameras with spotting and field scopes). This is usually $199.99, however, if you want to add one to your spotting scope purchase we will offer it for only $99.99.
