The Swarovski Modular Telescope System
The new modular design offers previously unimagined flexibility and you are free to choose the perfect solution as the situation dictates. In collaboration with experts we have developed digiscoping adapters that open up a new realm of ways in which to observe and share the most beautiful moments.
Perfectly designed down to the smallest detail, you will be equipped for any situation.
Just one hand
When every second counts. Imagine a plover flitting over the shore one minute and taking off into the sky the next. The ATX and STX spotting scopes ensure that you are prepared for moments like this. This is because the new position of the zoom ring, which is now directly behind the focusing ring, makes it easier to handle. It means that you can zoom and focus with one hand, while steering the spotting scopes direction with the other.
This completely new ergonomic design offers a crucial benefit for digiscopers in particular. They can now use the camera quickly, easily and accurately with one hand, while the other concentrates on zoom and focus.
Easy to transport
Not a gram too heavy for top optical performance. Size and weight is the name of the game for all those who like to travel or spend long days in the field. The ATX/STX series means that bulky spotting scopes that are difficult to pack and heavy to carry are a thing of the past.
The modular design enables you to store the objective and eyepiece modules separately and the smaller dimensions also mean that you can easily and safely store individual modules in your luggage.
The key features
Contrast right up to the edge
This type of image definition has never been achieved before in any other spotting scope, thanks to the field flattener lenses creating a virtually flat image. Even the finest structures are reproduced with razor-sharp clarity right up to the edge with no need for constant refocusing. The result, every detail is instantly captured, producing a perfect image without any distortions.
Maximum contrast – including HD optics
A highly innovative optics design combined with fluoride- containing HD lenses minimise interfering colour fringing. This enables maximum colour fidelity and leads to a significant improvement in resolution and contrast. The result: an even more lifelike, contrast-rich image.
A complete view – Large field of view and high zoom range
Nothing escapes you. You have your eyes trained on a flock of dunlins, but you catch something at the edge of the picture. A rarity? Thanks to their wide field of view, the ATX/STX spotting scopes provide you with a broader, more exciting platform for your viewing experience. In spite of their high zoom range, the new generation of spotting scopes offers a large field of view. This allows you to achieve optimum magnification and detail recognition and also makes it extremely easy for you to search for and find objects, especially if they are in motion.
Eye relief plus – Large field of view even for spectacle wearers
SWAROVISION features a long eye relief and the removable twist-in eyecup is individually adjustable. The result: even spectacle wearers can enjoy a large field of view, not to mention the inimitable edge sharpness. An additional eyecup has been specially developed for spectacle wearers to further increase viewing comfort.
Maximum colour fidelity – Optimised coatings
The enhanced lens and prism coatings (SWARODUR & SWAROTOP) give noticeably better colour reproduction combined with even greater transmission. Swaroclean coatings on the outer lens surfaces create a non-stick effect, making it easier to clean. The result: even more impressive observing experiences, even in low light.
Perfect for digiscoping!
TLS APO Digiscoping Adapter – not included, available separately
The right choice for anyone who appreciates top-quality digiscoping; no matter whether you’re quickly switching between observing and taking photos or waiting in a photo hide to take the perfect close-up of an otter.
This is precisely why the TLS APO was developed as a complete system with the new ATX/STX spotting scopes. Its excellent optical quality and 30-mm focal length make it particularly attractive to the most discerning of digiscopers
DCB II Swing Adapter – Simple and spontaneous – not included, available separately
Whether you want to shoot a short video of a shy, rarity or snap a kingfisher that suddenly appears; with the DCB II swing adapter you can now capture these moments forever. The DCB II is distinctive in terms of its easy handling and can be used particularly quickly thanks to its slick design.
TR II Telescope Rail – not included, available separately
“To achieve the best possible results with all digiscoping adapters, we recommend you use the newly designed telescope rail, created specifically to ensure absolute stability when taking photos. The TR II ensures: – high stability thanks to two support points – quick-release system for rapid adjustment – full access to focusing ring – long adjustment track for optimum stability, regardless of the camera used”.
