TS SPECTIVE 80
This device has a 20-40 x magnification and a 45 degree view.
Field of vision: 50m / 1000m
Binoculars are best for simple, fast observations. With an opening of 90 mm you can even observe relatively weak objects quite well. Since an instrument of this size with 20x magnification can not be kept steady by hand for a long period , it is mounted on a stable tripod.
