IS Fieldscopes
IS 50, IS 60, IS 70

Discontinued Jan 2008. Full range of accessories available.
Listings for eyepieces and accessories are updated to reflect current models.

IS series fieldscopes are designed to provide high levels of performance & versatility in compact & lightweight bodies. Available in three objective sizes; 50mm, 60mm and 70mm with the option of straight-through and 45° angled viewing, these modern interchangeable eyepiece fieldscopes are produced using lightweight compound materials and all six models feature high performance 4 element fully multi-coated objective lenses, BK7 fully multicoated prisms and internal focusing.

 

Model: IS 50 / 45IS 50 A

IS 50 T-Scope
At just 20cm long and weighing 528g, the IS50 re-defines the 'compact telescope'. Designed and engineered to be both a competent fieldscope in its own right as well as a brilliant travelscope for the space conscious birdwatcher, shooter or archer, the quality of both optical and mechanical components ensures the IS50 will outperform many of today's current crop of 60mm spottingscopes of similar price. Compatibility with HR*, HDF* and SDL* eyepieces means the IS50 can also be purchased as a 'body only' for existing Opticron fieldscope users.

IS 50 S
Model: IS 50

 

Model: IS 60 / 45 IS 60 A

IS 60 F-Scope
Specifically designed to offer improved levels of optical resolution compared to preceding Opticron models in a more compact & lighter chassis, the IS 60 is a highly competent spottingscope that is both easy to use and transport either on a lightweight tripod or bipod. Matched to one of the three dedicated IS long eyerelief eyepieces, (40916S 25xWA, 40918S 18-54x and new 40919S IS Pro 15-45x), the model is an excellent choice for the first-time birdwatcher as well as the 100m plus shooter or archer looking for accuracy at 30x magnification and over.

IS 60 S
Model: IS 60

 

 

Model: IS 70 / 45 IS 70 A

IS 70 F-Scope
Available from Autumn 2005 this Japanese designed IS 70 weighs in at just under 950g and offers remarkable performance for its sub £200 price tag.

Featuring an f.400mm, 4 element objective with a surface area 35% greater than the IS 60, both straight-through and 45° angled viewing models deliver remarkably bright and sharp images with good colour contrast across a wide range of magnifications.

The IS 70 will take any of the IS, HR or HDF eyepieces currently available and even accepts the 40935 SDL as an 18-54x.
