Binoculars and Spotting Scopes
At the Nature Store we are pleased to feature the best selection of sighting scopes & binoculars in Oregon and SW Washington.
We carry the top quality scopes made by Swarovski & Kowa, honored by Cornell Labs as the “best in their class” in a scope comparison test (see Living Bird, Winter 2008).
In addition, we have a wide selection of mid-priced scopes by Vortex, Leupold, Redfield & Zenray. Many of these scopes utilize High Definition Glass (HD,ED, XD or FL) and are available with optional digiscoping attachments for photography. In addition, we have entry level scopes for as little as $325 ($292.50 for members).
Our Manfrotto tripods provide the perfect stable base for your sighting scope. Available as components, we have legs in both affordable aluminum and super-light-weight carbon fiber to pair with a selection of heads for every purpose, including digiscoping. We’re also pleased to offer Swarovski Optik’s all new line of aluminum and carbon fiber tripod legs and their light, ergonomically re-designed DH101 tripod head.
Our selection of binoculars come from some of the world’s best optics manufacturers: Swarovski, Zeiss, Nikon, Leupold, Vortex, & Zen-ray.
Prices range from $30 up to $3,000 with Portland Audubon members receiving a 10% discount off regular prices. Check our price list at the link above.
Breaking News: Our Zeiss Victory FL 8x42 was chosen Number 1 in BirdWatcher's Digest's recent High-End Binocular Review (May/June 2012 issue). Our Swarovski 8.5x42 came in at number 2 and was described as "virtually perfect binoculars with faultless optical quality…" Stop by the store to pick up a free copy of the review and make your own comparison test!
