Sign up for a free Swarovski Optik Sighting Scope Day with the Nature Store! Find out about the new additions to their modular scope, learn from experts, and take a field trip to test out your skills.

During the past year, Swarovski has added many components to their ATX modular scope system, which already features interchangeable 65, 85 and 95mm lenses. They include: 

  • a revolutionary BTX binocular eyepiece 
  • an Arca-Swiss style professional tripod head (also commonly called a gimbal head) 
  • a magnification booster to increase magnification by a factor of 1.7x 
  • a new balance rail for extra stability when digiscoping with a DSLR
  • a third TLS-APO digiscoping adapter creating a suite of three: 23mm, 30mm, and 43mm, designed to match with the new range of DSLR & System Cameras now on the market.  

Saturday, March 3

10:30 - 11:30 P.M. The ATX Modular Sighting Scope System & Accessories 

Clay Taylor, Swarovski’s Naturalist Market Manager, will explain and demonstrate this exciting new range of products. He will explain the features of the new system components, how they pair together, and help us understand who will benefit most from using specific products. 

1:00 - 3:00 P.M. Digiscoping Workshop 

Clay will go into further detail on using Swarovski digiscoping components for both the ATX and ATS/ATM series for taking digital images using either a standard digital camera or your cell phone. Bring your own equipment if you already have a scope (does not need to be Swarovski) or use ours as we step outside to put what we have learned into practice. 

Sunday March 4 

Clay is offering a special Digiscoping Fieldtrip. Time to practice your new skills!

Pre-registration requested for Saturday, required for Sunday fieldtrip (limited to 12 participants). Attend one or both Saturday sessions. Sunday’s digiscoping field trip is available only to Saturday workshop participants. Call the store to reserve your spot 503-292-9453 or email Nancy Mattson, store manager nmattson@audubonportland.org.
