LOMO Astele 60 zm 48-146x60mm ZOOM Spotting Scope A1225

If you are tired of looking at all the cheap plastic Maksutov imitations on the market today, take a minute or two to look at one of the original Maksutov spotting scopes, built by the people who made the Maksutov famous! The LOMO 60zm is a solid, all-metal Maksutov spotting scope built in St Petersburg, Russia by old world craftsman.

The LOMO Astele 48-146x 60 mm ZOOM Spotting Scope A1225, like all Maksutovs, is free of a common optical defect that causes color fringing around objects when viewed against a bright background. With a LOMO 60 Maksutov spotting scope, you get optical performance that can only be achieved by the most expensive versions of other spotting scopes. The LOMO 60zm is also multi-coated to deliver the brightest images and, with its built-in image erecting system, you get correctly oriented images as well. With a LOMO 60zm spotting scope, there is no need to settle for less than the best in either construction or optics!

The LOMO Astele ZOOM 48-146 x 60 mm Spotting Scope A1225 is the most most popular version in our LOMO 60 series and it comes complete with a powerful 48-146x zoom eyepiece, making it a great choice for viewing wildlife at great distances or scoring targets at the range. The LOMO 60zoom is equally at home at night should you want to see mountain ranges on the moon or the rings of Saturn.

Of course, you can always customize your LOMO 60zm with another eyepiece because the LOMO 60 zoom eyepiece can be removed instantly and replaced with ANY 1.25" telescope eyepieces on the market today. That's the kind of versatility you get with the LOMO 60mm zoom Astele Spotting Scope, not the competition.

Focusing with the LOMO 60zm spotting scope A1225 is fast and sure with a large, easy to grasp, focusing ring at the front of the telescope. Close focus is an astonishing 10ft - better than most binoculars! This makes the LOMO 60 as useful at short range as it is at long range.

You can mount your LOMO 60zm on any camera tripod, full-size or compact! Even on the largest tripod, though, the LOMO 60's small size and weight makes it a joy to carry and use in the field. With its beautiful blue sky map finish, the LOMO 60 zoom A1225 is also a beautiful addition to your living room, deck or patio. This is a spotting scope that looks as good as it performs.

We are so confident of the quality of this versatile spotting scope, that we offer a full life-time warranty. Your LOMO 60 is built to last for many years!

Everyone who has looked through this scope has wanted one. My uncle tried to buy it off of me the other day. The Russians have created a real winner. Dont even try to consider those Chinese spotting scopes you see in the ads in the newspaper. There's no comparison. I purchased a couple of RINI eyepieces on Ebay and they work gloriously well with the LOMO. Pros: Easy to setup and focus, solid construction, excellent optics. Cons: Soft case a bit flimsy...should be hardshell.

When it arrived we noticed part of a fingerprint inside on the veiwers lens. Since it was on the inside we could not remove it. Called and we were told we would need to send the whole unit back not just the veiw piece. Pros: Cheap, good on rifle range Cons: Hard to find stars with it.

I received the LOMO scope, eyepiece and tripod from Optics Planet in Australia in less than 2 weeks. Service was excellent, including replying to email inquiries. The scope is great value and very good optically. Pros: Excellent value for money Cons: None at the price
