Here are some features of Konus 7122 20x-60×100 mm Spotting Scope-
The exterior of the Konus spotting scope features a metal which is encased in rubber armor. The glass is relatively heavy since it weighs about 5.3 pounds and measures about 18.8 inches long. It comes with all the necessary accessories to help you get started.
The box contains a soft carrying case, the Konus 7122 20–60×100 mm Spotting Scope as well as camera adapter.
Although this scope looks a bit bigger than other scopes in the market, its optics and durability are admirable. The rubber armor provides the very good anti-shock barrier allowing it to last for a longer period.
In addition, the rubber armor makes it withstand a drop from a short distance. This means that you can use the scope without worrying too much. The scope is fog proof and rainproof making it ideal to use on a camping trip for spotting birds and other wildlife.
The manufacturer uses fantastic optics in this model as it packs it with Porro prism design using the BaK 4 prism glass. This model’s optics are multi-coated to allow it to get the great image clarity out of the glass.
The spotting scope come with a good focus knob that turns smoothly to allow you focus well. The zoom lenses, as well as the eyepiece, rotates consistently to allow you to use the scope effortlessly. When we look at the light gathering capabilities of this model, they are excellent.
The optics are multi-coated for increased brightness which makes it ideal to use for early bird-spotting as well as late night observation.
The konus 7122 20x- 60×100 mm scope comes with a massive 100 mm objective lens that provides from 20x – 60x magnification. The image quality, as well as resolution provided by the magnification, is outstanding at all zoom levels.
In addition, the lenses allow all your subject to have plenty of colors.
The scope has a field view of about 88 feet at a thousand yard with 20x magnification and 44 feet at 60x magnification.
As previously mentioned this product comes accompanied with a soft carrying case as well as a camera adapter. The soft carrying case is ideal since it will keep the scope well protected when in storage and when carrying it.
The camera adapter is also nice bonus although you will be required to purchase the appropriate T- ring to fit your camera. The product does come with a tripod. However, this should not make you to feel that you are missing out on anything.
Most companies that offer their scopes with tripods use very poor materials to construct the tripod in a bid to cut the overall weight. This means you will have to purchase a better tripod even if you purchase your scope with one.
Remember this scope is rather heavy and when you combine with the 100 mm objective lenses it becomes pretty beefy so you need to look for a solid tripod to hold it.
The greatest thing about this scope is that it is very durable and its rubber armor will protect it from breaking even after a long-term use.
The rubber armor also absorbs shocks making it remain in top condition even if it fall from a short distance.
Another strength of Konus 7122 model is that it has great optics and magnification that enables you to spot birds and other wildlife from a far distance.
The optics are excellent and allow you to have crisp and clear images that are full of color.
The first setback with this model is that it is heavy and can be a burden if you are walking for a long distance.
It needs a sturdy tripod. However, if you do not have a lot of baggage with you or you want to spot birds and other wildlife at the comfort of your home, it is an excellent choice.
We also believe it could be better if the optics were fully multi-coated instead of just multi-coated on the surface.
