Celestron Hummingbird 9-27x56mm ED Micro Spotting Scope: A Birder’s Best Friend

Product Description

The Celestron Hummingbird 9-27x56mm ED Micro Spotting Scope is the perfect companion for birders and nature enthusiasts. This “micro” spotting scope is designed with the qualities of a hummingbird in mind – small size, highly mobile, and capable of long-distance travel. Just like its namesake, the Hummingbird Micro Spotting Scope is as well suited to long-distance travel as it is to the backyard.

Travel-Friendly Design

Ideal for travel, the Hummingbird spotting scope is compact and lightweight, easily fitting into a pocket, shoulder bag, or carry-on luggage. It serves as a more travel-friendly alternative to a full-size spotting scope, making it a favorite among traveling birders. Additionally, the lowest magnification level can also serve as a substitute for a binocular, providing versatility in the field.

Exceptional Optics

The Hummingbird features Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass, which virtually eliminates chromatic aberration or color fringing. This common visual defect in binoculars is not present in the Hummingbird, delivering edge-to-edge sharpness with excellent color correction and razor-sharp images. Celestron’s high-quality ED glass ensures visibly brighter and sharper images compared to non-ED binoculars, especially in low light conditions.

Durable and Weatherproof

Constructed with a waterproof and nitrogen-filled design, the Hummingbird is protected against wet weather, humid conditions, and other environmental challenges. Its durable armor provides added protection against bumps and jolts during transport and in the field, ensuring its longevity and reliability.
