The Celestron TrailSeeker 80 just might be the perfect spotting scope! Advanced features, such as an interchangeable zoom lens, rotatable tripod mount, and a dual focus mechanism are built into this well-designed spotting scope, and the high quality 80mm optical system, finished with Celestron’s famous XLT coatings, provides bright, sharp, high contrast images in even the most challenging situations.
Rugged waterproof, nitrogen-filled housing
A good spotting scope should be able to accompany you in all sorts of weather, and the Celestron TrailSeeker 80 model is more than up to the task. The ruggedized, rubber-armored housing is purged of all moisture and then filled with Nitrogen. This procedure keeps water on the outside, where it belongs. No need to worry about rain, heavy dew, or for that matter, coffee, from penetrating into the optical housing or sensitive mechanical parts of the spotting scope. And what’s more, your optics will not fog in overly humid environments or when there is a large temperature change; the Nitrogen inside the TrailSeeker makes sure of that.
The 52332 TrailSeeker model has an eyepiece housing that is angled 45 degrees. Whether you choose an angled or a straight body style is really personal preference. Many people prefer an angled eyepiece because the spotting scope and tripod can sit lower to the ground, making it more stable in windy conditions. The Celestron TrailSeeker spotting scopes all come with a rotatable tripod mount that allows you to position your eyepiece and focus knob right where you want it. If you prefer a straight spotting scope design, the TrailSeeker 52333 model is also available.
Interchangeable zoom eyepiece
The Celestron TrailSeeker 80 comes with a high quality 20x - 60x zoom eyepiece. This magnification range is classic for an 80mm spotting scope. It gives you a relatively low power, wide angle view at 20 times as far as your eye can see, and zooms up to 60x to really bring your subject in close. The 20x-60x zoom eyepiece is not built into the spotting scope itself, but is interchangeable, allowing you to add additional eyepieces to your repertoire of observing accessories.
The TrailSeeker 20-60 zoom eyepiece offers good eye relief at both ends of the magnification range—18mm at 20x and 15mm at 60x—enough to enjoy a comfortable observing experience, even if you wear eyeglasses.
More great features
To cut glare and increase contrast, the Celestron 80mm TrailSeeker comes with a built-in, sliding lens shade. Just pull it forward when you need it, and push it back out of the way when you don’t. You will appreciate this feature when the sun is at your left or right, causing contrast-killing light to skip across your optics, and if it rains, the lens shade will keep water droplets off the glass, or at least delay it a bit.
The dual focus mechanism on all Celestron TrailSeeker’s gives you two choices when it comes to focusing your spotting scope. Sometimes all it takes is a twist of the larger coarse focus knob, especially at lower powers. But when you are pushing your magnification to the max, you will really appreciate the ability to critically focus the image via the fine focus knob.
