The angled-viewing Regal M2 80ED Spotting Scope from Celestron combines a high-transmission optical path with a nitrogen-filled magnesium-alloy housing to deliver reliable imaging performance at low light and in unforgiving weather conditions. At the core of the Regal M2 are fully multi-coated optics, including BAK4 prisms and an extra-low dispersion (ED) glass objective that minimizes chromatic aberration and maximizes light gathering. Multiple layers of Celestron's proprietary XLT coating on each lens preserve brightness and transmit contrast-rich images to the eyepiece.
This version of the Regal M2 spotting scope includes a 20-60x eyepiece that is ideal for intermediate- to long-range glassing. The broad magnification range, comfortable 20mm eye relief, and twist-up rubber eyecup make this zoom eyepiece well suited for long-duration observations. The scope's standard 1.25' eyepiece mount will accept most astronomy eyepieces, which enables a near-infinite number of optical configurations.
Complementing the image quality and weather-sealed construction of the Regal M2, several features enhance the scope's functionality and observer's user experience. An included T-adapter ring permits DSLR camera mounting to the objective assembly, transforming the 80ED into a high-transmission digiscoping platform. The rotating tripod collar has a 1/4'-20 mounting socket and is detented at multiple positions to provide the observer with alternate viewing orientations. A sliding sunshade, sighting aid, and dual-focus mechanism equip the Regal M2 with the functionality needed for a wide range of outdoor glassing applications.

- Celestron TrailSeeker Tripod with Fluid Pan Head
- Regal M2 Spotting Scopes
The TrailSeeker Tripod with Fluid Pan Head from Celestron is a 4-section aluminum tripod with a two-way fluid pan/tilt head. It extends from a minimum working height of 18.9' to a maximum of 70.5'. Weighing 3.9 lb, the tripod can hold up to 9 lb, whether that be a spotting scope, binocular, camera, small telescope, or other equipment.
The legs can be independently set to three different angles for shooting on an uneven surface. Flip locks allow you to adjust the height of each leg, and a foam grip on two of the legs adds comfort when carrying the tripod, especially in extreme temperatures. The Center column has a ballast hook for adding a counterweight, which will lower the center of gravity, adding stability to the tripod.
The tripod features a 2-way pan/tilt fluid head with one large knob that both controls the tension and locks the head in place. A quick-release plate with a 1/4'-20 threaded stud makes attaching and detaching your equipment quick and easy. Bubble levels help ensure that your camera will be level to the horizon.
Included with the TrailSeeker is a case and shoulder strap to protect your tripod and make transport easier.
