With porro-prism optics and a 65mm objective lens with extra-low dispersion optical elements, they deliver sharp, high-contrast images. Viewing in inclement weather won't be a problem as the PF-65ED II series is waterproof and nitrogen filled (JIS Class 6). The PF-65ED II spotting scope is available in either a straight version or angled version (PF-65ED-A II) that features a 45-degree slanted lens barrel for comfortable viewing in just about any situation.
