While at the range last year we were playing around with some of our spotting scopes. As usual, disappointed with the sizes, features and benefits in contrast to the cost of these often near behemoth range optics – we wanted the performance of the larger glass with the packable size of the typical novelty items. It was here, on the range, over the smell of gun powder, that the concept of the new LUCID Optics SC9 Compact Spotting Scope was born.
After carefully reviewing a long list of optical desires, we developed the optical system with ED glass and fully multi-coated lenses. This enabled us to provide all of the expected color, contrast and edge to edge clarity that a LUCID Optics customer has grown accustomed to. Then, we balanced the optics performance with an oversized eye piece and a 56mm Objective lens, giving the new SC9 such a tiny foot print that this optic can be taken most anywhere with ease.
With a close focus of 7’ 2” out to infinity, this tiny yet powerful spotting scope delivers such anexceptional view from the 9x all the way through the surprisingly powerful 27x that we often forget that the optic is so small. Give this item a look, for the price, you may just fall in love.
