Meopta USA Sport Optics Introduces Straight-Body MeoPro HD 80 Spotting Scope

TAMPA, FL, February 27, 2019 – Meopta USA Sport Optics is pleased to introduce a straight-body model of its award-winning MeoPro HD 80 spotting scope. Originally available in angled-body only, the MeoPro HD 80 spotting scopes feature a one-piece design with a fixed 20x – 60x eyepiece.   The large 80mm fluoride objective lens delivers maximum light transmission and razor-sharp resolution in low light while eliminating color fringing, making it easy for hunters to assess game at long distances.

The MeoPro HD 80 has a rugged, fully-armored magnesium alloy body, and Centric-Drive™ mid-body focus control that is easy and fast to use, even with gloves on.  MeoBright™ ion-assisted multi-coatings eliminate glare and reflections while delivering exceptional color fidelity. Meopta’s MeoDrop™ hydrophobic lens coating ensures the highest level of visual clarity in the field, easily repelling rain, snow, skin oils and dirt while the MeoShield™ anti-abrasion lens coating protects external lens surfaces from scratches.

“We are excited to finally offer our customers a choice between angled and straight body in our MeoPro HD 80 spotting scope,” said Randy Garrison, Director of Meopta USA Sport Optics.  “The MeoPro HD 80 is a high-performance spotter that has been a big seller for us. Hunters, optics experts, guides and outfitters quickly recognized the exceptional value of this optic when we introduced the first model, and we continue to deliver European-quality optics at great price points across all of our lines.”

Meopta’s MeoPro HD 80 spotting scopes are nitrogen purged, waterproof, fogproof and shockproof.  The MeoPro HD 80 is available separately or as part of a kit that contains the new Meopta Carbon Fiber Tripod with ball head and pan-tilt head, universal smartphone adapter and premium carrying case, in addition to the spotting scope.
