Now available through dealers, the new Leica Extender 1.8x for the Leica APO-Televid 65 and APO-Televid 82 angled spotting scopes provides the Leica consumer with maximum versatility of use, whether he or she is critically assessing the most minute details of distant wildlife or even observing the rings of Saturn. When the Extender 1.8x is mounted in front of the 25-50x WW ASPH wide-angle zoom eyepiece, the effective magnification range is expanded to 45-90x.
This increased magnification is ideal for nature enthusiasts who want to spot, identify and enjoy watching species at extreme distances.
Both the APO-Televid 62 and the APO-Televid 82 spotting scopes perform impressively thanks to their superior optics, robust construction and attractive design. They offer a broad field of view and deliver pin-sharp viewing images with maximum contrast and outstanding color fidelity. Now, thanks to the Leica Extender 1.8x, their long-distance viewing capabilities are taken to the next level. The new Leica Extender 1.8x offers abilities not offered in most optical systems.
The Leica 25-50× WW ASPH. wide-angle zoom eyepiece is an ideal complement to the Leica APO-Televid spotting scopes and offers a viewing image of outstanding quality across the entire field of view and throughout the complete zoom range. The use of the Extender 1.8x maintains this quality and extends it over an even larger zoom range. Thanks to the integrated automatic locking mechanism on the bayonet lens mount, the Extender can be quickly and securely mounted between the spotting scope and the eyepiece.
Drew Weber reviewed the Leica Extender 1.8x for Nemesis Bird and said, “The bottom line for me after using it for a full day was that depending on what type of birding I was doing, I would be very happy to leave the Extender on the scope for the whole day of birding, and wouldn’t have to worry about switching it in and out.”
With the new Leica Extender 1.8x, you’ll see detail like never before.
