Swarovski STC Spotting Scope
A removable half shell is attached to the bottom of the spotting scope using the tripod thread, which allows it to rest in your hand or on a firm surface without blocking the zoom wheel. this allows comfortable, stable observation even without a tripod. The carrying strap supplied can be fitted directly to the spotting scope and provides fast access.
The last time Swarovski introduced a new addition to their spotting scope line, they surprised most of us by going above and beyond the normal limits of spotting scope sizes. The 115 was a welcome addition to the line and really made it feel like they offered a spotting scope for any scenario.
Well… they must have thought differently. The 65mm just wasn’t light and packable enough. Enter the brand new STC and ATC spotting scopes. These are part of a brand new product line that does not share the modularity of the X line. The specs will tell you that they are light and small, but just wait until you get one in your hands.
At just 2 lb, these are 17-40x56mm spotting scopes that… get this… feature the exact same optical system as the ATX and STX. That includes Swarovision technology. They may not be part of the modular series, but you aren’t sacrificing any quality or clarity in this much smaller package.
