One of the biggest challenges about leading birding trips around the world is the increasingly-restrictive air travel regulations. By contrast, one of the newfound joys of travelling certainly has to be Nikon’s ED (extra low dispersion) 50mm fieldscope. It comes with either a straight or angled body and is the easiest, smallest, lightest and best high end scope on the market to travel with, bar-none. At 11 inches in length including the 13x-30x eyepiece, and weighing less than 20 ounces it packs comfortably into carry-on baggage without adding pounds.
In the field, my trip participants are intrigued by the diminutive size of the scope, and thrilled by its performance. Once they look through at the fine details on the wing of their first breeding plumage Black-bellied Plover they are astounded by its clarity. Rugged and waterproof it has a bright high resolution glass with true color image. I’ve never had so many participants want to carry my scope, though the catch is that I have to carry theirs! The size and lightness sells itself and I certainly recommend that you get to check one out and see for yourself.
