IS R series spottingscopes deliver excellent value for money offering high levels of performance and versatility in a compact, lightweight body. Designed for the first-time user, frequent traveller and those on a budget they are available in 60mm and 70mm formats with the option of straight-through or 45° angled viewing.

Features include;

In line with our commitment to offer the best choice of eyepieces to suit your budget and application, the IS R spottingscopes are fully compatible with IS, HR, HDF and SDL eyepieces (adapters may be required). For general use we recommend you choose either the 40918S IS or 41145S HR3 zoom eyepiece.

IS 60 R
An excellent all-rounder and the perfect choice for the first-time birdwatcher moving up from ‘binocular-only’ bird watching as well as the shooter or archer looking for accuracy at distances of 100-200m.

IS 70 R
With a great mix of style, performance and adaptability, the IS 70 R is an ideal choice for anyone wanting a high specification entry level spottingscope for target shooting, birdwatching or plane spotting. Featuring a 400mm, 4-element objective lens with a surface area 35% greater than the IS 60 R so images are brighter with a higher top-end magnification for a small increase in size and weight.
