The MeoPro HD 80 sports mid-body focus controls. The body is nitrogen-purged, waterproof, fogproof and shockproof. Tripod thread is ¼ - 20.


The HD 80’s mid-body focus control is oversized and designed to be easy-to-use with gloved hands. As for optical clarity there are multiple coatings that help eliminate glare and reflections. The lenses use a hydrophobic coating to keep rain, snow, oils and dirt from marring the view. The usual nitrogen-purging process is present that helps keep moisture from entering the body. Additionally, there is an anti-abrasion coating on the external lens surfaces to protect from scratches.

MSRP is $1,599.95. The MeoPro HD 80 spotting scope can also be purchased as part of a kit for $100 more that adds a carbon-fiber tripod, smartphone adapter and carrying case.
