Hummingbird ED Micro Spotting Scope
The name Hummingbird reflects many of the qualities of hummingbirds: very small size, highly mobile (they can fly in most any direction at will), and capable of long-distance travel (many migrate between South and North America). The Celestron Hummingbird is a “micro” ED spotting scope, and like its namesake, the Hummingbird Micro Spotting Scope is as well suited to long-distance travel as it is to the backyard.
Ideally suited for travel – the Hummingbird will easily fit into a pocket, shoulder bag, or carry-on luggage. This spotting scope is perfect for traveling birders as a more travel-friendly alternative to a full-size spotting scope. The lowest magnification level can also serve as a substitute for a binocular.
- Easily carried in vest or coat pocket, in belt pack, or shoulder bag.
- ED lens optical system provides sharp, clear images with vivid, well-managed color.
- “Birder-friendly” close focus distance: 10 ft. / 3m close focus satisfies birding field optic requirements.
- Waterproof / Nitrogen filled -- Protected against wet weather, humid conditions, and other environmental challenges.
Our expert comment:
Hummingbird spotting scopes take a 1.25" eyepiece, so you can also use many 1.25" astronomical eyepieces for achieving higher magnification, or to enlarge the field of view.
Our tip - the Baader Morpheus eyepieces, which can be found in the accessory recommendations!
