This full-featured optic device is in a water-resistant body, allowing clear viewing in all weather conditions, and a multi-coated lens that ensures high light gathering capabilities and provides excellent contrast and resolution. Whether the Yukon 20-50x50 spotting scope is used for observing nature while hiking or camping, hunting large or small animals or used for surveillance and law enforcement, it is conveniently small and surprisingly durable. The 20-50x50 is the perfect scope to take anywhere including forested and closed in areas. While other scopes make you choose one magnification, the Yukon uses a combination of cutting-edge optics and mirror technology to give the viewer more observation variety in a smaller device. However, make no mistake; this scope does not sacrifice power to its compact size. There is only one other scope that utilizes the 20-50x50's technology, but it doesn't compare to Yukon's affordability and value.
