The Hummingbird spotting scope shares many qualities with its namesake bird. The Celestron Hummingbird (Zoom eyepiece) Micro Spotting Scope is the world’s first “micro” sized spotting scope which is convenient for hikers, birders, and other wildlife watchers on the go. This spotting scope from Celestron is great for travelling.
Standard spotting scopes tend to be large and/or heavy, making them inconvenient to carry long distances in the field. The Hummingbird will surprise you as you discover how light and compact a spotting scope can be. You will want to take it places you never thought possible. You can easily hold this spotting scope in one hand, place it in a pocket, or pack it along in your carry-on luggage without taking up much space.
Although it is small, Hummingbird does not compromise on quality. All air-to-glass surfaces are fully multi-coated with high transmission optical coatings. The result is the maximum light transmission for bright, sharp, contrasty images. The prism is phase-coated BaK4, which increases contrast and resolution for sharper, more detailed images you will really appreciate. The large knurled ring dial is used for focusing the optics and the smaller knurled ring dial near the eyepiece is used to change the magnification of the zoom eyepiece.
This Micro Spotting Scope is durable, with a waterproof construction. The durable body of the Hummingbird works to keep the spotting scope protected against bumps and jolts both during transport and in the field. It’s fully waterproof and nitrogen-purged, so you can use the scope worry-free in downpours, humid conditions, and other environmental challenges.
The 56 mm Hummingbird 9-27x spotting scope features a close focus of 10 feet, making it perfect for viewing birds, butterflies, plants, or other nearby subjects. The magnification options of the 9-27x56 mm spotting scope cleverly spans the standard magnification ranges of both a binocular and a spotting scope. No matter how you choose to observe, this versatile spotting scope is a great all-around optical companion to have with you on your field trips.
The Celestron Hummingbird 56 mm Zoom 9-27X Micro Spotting Scope offers multiple ways to observe in nature. Unlike most spotting scopes, Hummingbird is so small that you can use it handheld at the lowest magnification level for a quick view of your subject. Travelers who need to save space can replace their binoculars and their spotting scope with this one handy instrument. But the scope is also tripod adaptable, so you can secure it to a stable platform or tripod for long-distance viewing.
The Hummingbird Micro Spotting Scope from Celestron provides plenty of eye relief for use with or without eyeglasses. For use while wearing eyeglasses, simply leave the twist-up eyecup in the lowered position. If you are not wearing eyeglasses, just twist the twist-up eyecup into the extended position, to help block out unwanted stray light.
