Spotter in Training with Meopta MeoPro HD 80 Spotting Scope

Thanks to my son for helping me out at the shooting range today. He did a great job spotting for me with the Meopta MeoPro HD 80 Spotting Scope. Of course, he is also practicing good range safety with the Gargoyle glasses and Walker’s hearing protection!

    • HD Fluoride objective lens element eliminates chromatic aberration (CA) or color fringing by bringing light wavelengths into a single common focus along the optical axis – delivering maximum resolution and vivid color fidelity in challenging lighting conditions.
    • Centric Drive™ is an oversized, mid-body focus control featuring a large rubberized wheel that is easy to manipulate for fine focus requirements or when moving rapidly from close subjects to extended distances. CentricDrive™ is comfortable to use and easily accommodates users wearing thick gloves or users with limited grasping ability.
