    Hello Papatooth,

    sorry but I don't get that 'pan out', could you please explain.

    Thanks for your interest in the Televid,

    Hello Papatooth,

    thanks for the explanation.

    The advantage of the Leica APO Televid 82mm is its small size - this spotter suites well in the hand bag when leaving for the holidays, or just a trip. The high quality optics may compete with a bit larger and heavier spotters.

    I have enjoyed the viewing very much.

    Best

    JG
