Introducing the SP range by KITE OPTICS, a collection of professional telescopes designed for precision long-distance observation. The SP series offers three distinct variations to suit your specific needs: the compact SP 65, the large-diameter SP 82, and the top-tier SP 82 ED.

Crafted from high-grade aluminum, KITE SP spotting scopes are engineered to withstand rigorous use in all environmental conditions. Backed by an extensive 30-year warranty, a hallmark of quality for KITE OPTICS professional instruments, these scopes provide peace of mind and longevity.

Featuring a dual-speed focus wheel, the SP scopes deliver both comfort and rapid focusing, enhancing your observation experience. Additionally, these scopes offer premium features, including a specially designed tripod foot that perfectly matches the Manfrotto 200PL14 plate. This unique feature enables SP scopes to directly mount onto the world's best and most popular Manfrotto tripod heads without the need for additional adapter parts.

At the pinnacle of the range is the SP 82 ED, equipped with an Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) lens. This advanced lens, also referred to as fluorite or HD, significantly reduces color defects such as chromatic aberration. As a result, the image you observe is incredibly natural, and observations or photos taken through phonescoping and digiscoping are notably free from color fringes.

The SP 82 ED scope is available with either a 20-60x zoom eyepiece or the innovative 25-50x wide-angle zoom eyepiece.

Please note: the eyepiece is not included and should be purchased separately.
