SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA Announces
New STR 80 Spotting Scope

Cranston, Rhode Island - SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA, a subsidiary of the Austrian-based company, is pleased to announce the new STR 80 spotting scope. Offering HD optics and an illuminated reticle, the STR 80 is excellent for estimating distance and will allow you to see targets at long range.

Great at the range or in the field, the new rugged and ergonomically designed STR 80 scope offers an illuminated MOA or MRAD reticle with 15 brightness levels, 10 day levels and 5 night levels. The reticle, which will get larger or smaller with the object in view as the magnification is adjusted, is extremely useful to help a shooter adjust shots in ¼ MOA or 0.10th MRAD increments at a long range. Also versatile, the STR 80 can be used as a regular spotting scope as needed by allowing the reticle to be completely removed from view. Current SWAROVSKI OPTIK eyepieces, the 20-60x and the 25-50xW (wide), can be used with the STR 80, adding to its versatility.  

The STR 80 has an HD optical system which allows you to identify, with high resolution, bullet holes in paper targets at long distances. The HD lenses provide rich contrast and exceptional color fidelity. Complete with SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s optimized specialty coatings, SWARODUR, SWAROTOP, and SWAROCLEAN, the STR 80 will also offer 3 Picatinny rails and a winged eye cup, which can be purchased separately.

Dustin Woods, Director of Sales for SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA said, “We are very excited to bring this revolutionary product to market. We have heard long range shooters ask for a premium spotting scope with integrated reticle and we have listened. With our new STR spotting scope we now have MOA and Mil-Radian reticle models. Because the reticle is illuminated; the user can have the reticle turned on when they are judging hits and misses but also turn it completely off for an unobstructed view during observation. This product is a real game changer in the precision shooting market segment.”

I honestly cannot wait to see this!
 
Having the ability to use a pinnacle spotter like this with a mil-dot reticle is very exciting.

Used to determine the distance to an object of known size. The reticle “grows or shrinks” with the object in view as the magnification is turned up or down. Although this performs like a first focal plane reticle, it is not called a first focal plane reticle in a spotting scope. A spotting scope only has one focal plane. This feature has the advantage that regardless of the magnification setting, accurate ranging measurements are assured.
 
 
The reticle can only be seen when illuminated. The illumination knob must be turned on for the reticle to be visible. When the knob is in the off position the reticle will not be visible, offering the advantage of “clutter free” view if desired.
 
 
Allows for 15 Mils from the central aiming point, up, down, left, right, in 0.5 Mil increments. The numbers on the horizontal and vertical main axis represent the number of Mils from the reticle’s center.
 
 
As the magnification is turned up, the outside mil increments will become less visible. At maximum 60x magnification with a 20-60x eyepiece, approximately 1/3 of the outside mil increments will not be visible.
