About the new ATC and STC compact spotting scopes, Swarovski Optik said in a press release, “With its light weight, compact size, incredible resolution and clarity, you will not miss anything on your next outing into the great outdoors.”


The half shell allows easier positioning on a surface, plus unrestricted turning for the focusing and zoom wheels. And, field flattener lenses deliver a nearly “flat, completely distortion-free image—right up to the edges.”

In addition, Swarovski Optik’s new ATC and STC spotting scopes are compatible with the company’s Variable Phone Adapter and AR-S adapter ring for X spotting scopes, along with window mount compatibility.

MSRP for both of the Swarovski Optik ATC and STC compact spotting scopes starts at $2,610. Learn more at
