Nikon Monarch Fieldscope 82ED-A With MEP-20-60

Discover the greatness and beauty of the world around you with a tool designed to not only get you closer but present you with a vision better than that of the naked eye with Nikon Monarch Fieldscope 82ED-A With MEP-20-60.

Nikon Sophisticated Optical Technology

True to its legendary name and reputation, the Monarch Fieldscope brings the excitement of awe-inspiring observation and incredible visual experiences to the eye of its beholder. Monarch’s Advanced apochromatic system of ED glass and proprietary lens and prism coatings delivers true color fidelity with high-resolution integrity.

Field Flattener Lens System

Nikon’s innovative Field Flattener Lens System ensures sharp images throughout the entire field of view. The curvature of the field is an aberration that occurs when focusing on the center of the viewing field, causing the periphery to go out of focus or vice versa. Nikon’s Field Flattener Lens System provides consistent, edge-to-edge sharpness while compensating for astigmatism and coma aberration at the same time, offering an exceptionally sharp, clear image throughout the entire field of view.

Advanced Apochromat Optical System with ED Glass

Nikon’s ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass ensures a contrast-rich and color-faithful field of view. By designing the entire optical system from the ground up, Nikon’s Advanced Apochromat Optical System corrects not only chromatic aberrations of red, blue, and green but also violet chromatic aberration to the furthest limits of the visible light range. The result is unimaginably sharp, high-contrast views.

Multilayer Coating for Natural Color Fidelity

Multilayer coating is applied to all lens and prism surfaces, allowing powerful light transmission. The resulting bright field of view delivers true-to-life natural colors. The coating also greatly reduces the flare and ghosting that can occur in backlit situations.

Total Reflection Prism

It utilizes a Porro prism design, while the angled-type models employ Nikon’s original total reflection prism. Because all prism reflective surfaces offer complete reflectivity with no loss of light, a bright and vivid view is achieved.

Optimized Focusing System for Fast Focusing

This field scope provides different focusing speeds for optimal operation: fine focus adjustment for distant subjects and coarser adjustment for nearby subjects. Effortless, smooth focusing enables you to confidently acquire your target faster and in sharper focus.

Newly Designed Monarch Fieldscope MEP Eyepieces

Nikon has developed eyepieces exclusively for Monarch Fieldscope. Engineered to provide a wide field of view, Monarch eyepieces also provide sufficiently long eye relief. Thus, not only do you enjoy peerless viewing — but you can also perform collimate photography with a compact digital camera. When attached to a Fieldscope, each of the three new MEP eyepieces is waterproof*, ensuring safe use even during unexpected weather changes.

*Waterproof: As tested by water equivalent to 5 mm per minute, for 30 minutes. (NOT designed for underwater usage).

Body Design for Comfortable Observation

The Monarch Fieldscope body, constructed of robust aluminum alloy, provides durability, reliability, and ease of operation. Other ergonomic features such as the specific knurling pattern on the focusing ring enhance its operability. The Type 1 Bayonet Mount with a locking system makes eyepiece attachment/detachment easy and secure.

Waterproof Performance For Inclement Weather

It can be used without worrying about changing weather conditions in the natural environment. The Monarch Fieldscope is waterproof*, sealed with O-rings and packing seals that make them airtight. In addition, the body is filled with nitrogen gas to prevent fog due to sudden temperature changes.

*Waterproof (up to 1 m/3.3 feet for 10 minutes) (NOT designed for underwater usage).
