Sightmark Solitude Spotting Scope Kits

posted on November 3, 2016
Sightmark's spotting scope kits provide not only a scope for field use, but also a tripod, carrying case, objective lens cap and an eyepiece cover to keep your kit portable and protected.

The company's kits come with three different spotting scope models: 11-33x50SE, 20-60x60SE and 20-60x80SE.

The 11-33x50SE scope features a Porro BK-7 coated prism for optimum clarity. The scope also features a multi-coated lens with an internal focusing system. Eye relief on the system is .59 inches, and the field of view is 77.1 feet at 100 yards on the highest power setting. The scope is waterproof, fogproof and nitrogen-purged to prevent moisture buildup. Total weight is 22.5 ounces. The 11-33x50SE retails at a suggested price of $179.99.

The company's 20-60x60SE scope features a fully multi-coated lens with a coated Porro BK-7 prism with a max eye relief of 0.6 of an inch and a field of view of 52.5 feet at 1,000 yards on the highest magnification setting. The scope is IP67-rated for dustproofing and waterproofing and it also features a nitrogen-purged interior to prevent fogging and moisture buildup. Total weight is 36.6 ounces. The 20-60x60SE retails at a suggested price of $239.99.

Sightmark's 20-60x80SE scope features the same magnification range as the previous model, but an 80 mm objective lens increases image quality, clarity and overall brightness. The 20-60x80SE retails at a suggested price of $359.99.
