Lecia APO-Televid Spotting Scope

With Leica’s APO-Televid spotting scopes, you’ll enjoy the minutest details in razor-sharp focus. The fluoride lenses and the apochromatic system ensure highest contrasts, optimum color neutrality and minimal color fringing. These scopes offer the widest possible field of view over the en- tire magnification range, along with crisply detailed reso- lution and maximum stray-light suppression. In addition, the proven Leica dual-focus system allows two different focusing ratios: the rapid focusing required for moving ob- jects, as well as the fine, precise focusing that digiscoping demands. Ideal for intensifying all of your viewing experi- ences, even those from a great distance.


Leica APO-Televid spotting scopes feature apochromatic lenses and use sophisticated fluoride glass for perfect imaging performance. What’s more, the inner optics are protected by an additional, optically neutral front lens glass. In the APO Televid 82 (available in a straight or angled version), an exceptionally bright 82mm objective delivers extremely rich images. Astounding details are visible even under the most unfavorable viewing conditions. The APO-Televid is predestined for professional digiscoping – the fascinating world of wildlife can be observed in crisp quality and captured forever in detail-rich photographs. Outstanding optical performance results in natural, brilliant colors across the entire field of view. The more compact APO Televid 65 straight or angled spotting scope is the ideal companion for long, demanding treks and exhausting alpine ascents. With a short build of 11.8 in/30 cm, it weighs a mere 39.3 oz/1115 g. All APO-Televid spotting scopes are particularly rugged, as any shocks or impacts are effectively absorbed by a resistant magnesium-alloy body and rubber armoring.

Leica Aspheric 25-50X Zoom Eyepiece

Leica's APO-Televid Aspherical eyepiece boasts optical superiority and durability with its wide angle 60 degree field of view, fully multi-coated lens system, rapid interchange bayonet attachment method, rubberized function elements and twist out eye cup. The nitrogen filled eye piece is submergible to 17 ft. and is completely fog/shockproof

Gitzo Traveller CF Tripod and Head

Traveler tripods are designed for globe-trotting photographers who require the ultimate lightweight, extremely compact tripod with professional performance. In 2004, Gitzo developed the Traveler’s revolutionary 180° leg folding mechanism. A world first for a tripod, it makes more efficient use of folded space by accommodating the centre column and head in between the folded tripod legs. The extremely compact design also makes the tripod quick to set up, while carbon fibre tubing throughout makes it sturdy and lightweight. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then many, many other tripod manufacturers also recognise the brilliance of our Traveler concept. But the Gitzo Traveler remains unmatched in either performance or stability, and our latest version only broadens the gap between the original and the rest.


The Gitzo GT1545T Series 1 Traveler carbon fiber tripod is a headless, ultra-compact, 4-section support with an 180° leg folding system pioneered by Gitzo, which enables its legs to reverse-fold around the center column and an optional ball head, allowing it to fold down to 42.5 cm. The GT1545T weighs 1.055 Kg, extends to a height of 153 cm and holds up to 10 kg of gear. It is recommended for use with 135mm lenses (200mm max.). With its included short center columninserted, the tripod gets down to 22 cm for low-angle or macro shots.

The tripod’s legs are made of Carbon eXact tubing for superior strength and stiffness in a slimmer size and feature the “Traveler G-lock” - a travel-size version of Gitzo’s G-lock, specifically designed to ensure security in reduced size. Its specially-designed compact rubber feet can easily be replaced if necessary. The Gitzo GT1545T has a 1/4″ and 3/8″ top attachment to easily attach heads or other accessories and comes with its own shoulder strap for comfortable carrying.

Features include:

  • Portable but tall, headless 4-section carbon fiber tripod
  • 2 leg angles, short column included for ground level shooting
  • Included shoulder strap for easy carrying
  • Stiffness and lightness combined with decent height
  • 1/4″ and 3/8″ attachment to easily attach heads and accessories
The Gitzo GH1720QR Series 1 Magnesium Two-Way Fluid Tripod Head with Quick Release is an ultra-lightweight solution dedicated to watching nature in the great outdoors, featuring pan and tilt fluid cartridges to provide smooth, controlled movement. It also includes a Quick Release system for quick and easy equipment attachment/removal. This extremely lightweight tripod head is made of highly rigid magnesium, weighs 460 grams and supports a load up to 4 kg.

The GH1720QR’s single-lock mechanism controls the 360° pan and ± 110° tilt movements via a single knob, for easier and more efficient adjustment. The tripod head is supplied with a removable, reversible pan bar and can be set up for both right/left-handed use, and its high-precision mechanism provides maximum stability and accuracy.

The GH1720QR provides the ultimate shooting speed and versatility when used with Gitzo carbon fiber tripods. This compact tripod head is ideal for accompanying photographers on birdwatching and wildlife photography trips.
