The optic comes with a generous eyebox, eliminating eye-strain and fatigue. An oversized eyepiece ensure comfortable viewing.
“The SX-2 Alpine HD delivers exactly what hunters and shooters want in a spotting scope, and it does it in a price class that you’re not going to be able to beat,” said Zach Bird, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Our in-house optical engineers are working every day here in Beaverton, Ore., to bring consumers the product quality they deserve, and the SX-2 is the perfect example – it’s lightweight, rugged, clear, and exactly what you’ll need whether you’re spending the day at the range or heading out in the field.”
The spotting scopes include scratch-resistant Diamondcoat lenses. High definition lens coatings provide bight, clear images. A Guard-ion lens coating sheds dirt and water. A rotating tripod adjustment ring allows for flexibility when glassing large areas. The optic features an ultra-smooth focus and integrated, adjustable sun shade.
