It's the next generation of Celestron's popular Regal F-ED spotting scopes. Day or night, the Regal M2 is optimized to provide the sharpest images available. You'll love them for bird watching, nature observing, long distance viewing and casual astronomical observing.
The Regal M2 80ED Spotting Scope provides all the advanced features usually found on more expensive scopes, including Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass which increases resolution, contrast and color fidelity while minimizing chromatic aberration (the blurry fringes around objects you get with cheaper optics). A magnesium alloy body decreases the overall weight while an upgraded dual focus mechanism brings your subject into focus twice as fast.
Regal M2 is fully waterproof and nitrogen-purged to prevent fogging, and, if you're interested in photographing your discoveries, Regal is the perfect choice. Attach your camera to the Regal using a T-Ring and the included T-Adapter to produce stunning images!All the info:
