Well I have decided to sell this spotting scope. If you hunt out west or in the mountains and need a spotting scope, this is a super model to have. It extends like the Swarovski model for use, then collapses for carry. it is very compact and has excellent optics. It is rubber coated (green) and has rubber covers for both ends. You can use as is or mount it on a tripod of window mount. This scope is in as new condition. Check it out on the net. I will let this one go for $1000 including shipping it to you. PM or e-mail me for some pictures if you are not familiar with this European brand. Cheers!
