The windage and elevation knobs have 10 mm per revolution. The new 40 mm body tube is waterproof, shockproof and nitrogen charged. Minimum focus is 10 meters. The SVIII features ED (extra-low dispersion) glass providing long range shooters the brightness and clarity required for accurate target acquisition.

The SII Blue Sky 20-60x85 HD spotting scope was built for all weather conditions and is an excellent choice for competition and hunting. With a waterproof and fog proof construction, the SII can withstand the harshest elements mother nature can throw at it.
